China Telecom, Telenor Connexion launch joint IoT platform

China Telecom and Telenor Connexion have presented a common Internet of Things (IoT) Open Platform at the launch event for “eSurfing on the Silk Road, IoT with the World” in Shanghai. This common platform enables both companies to serve their respective customers by providing IoT and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) services on each other’s network.

It enables China Telecom’s multi-national enterprise customers with outbound IoT business to deploy their assets and offerings under Telenor Connexion’s networks in the European and other Asian Markets. Similarly, Telenor Connexion’s global customers can get the benefits of the rapidly growing Chinese market by using China Telecom’s IoT network resources and business capabilities.

The switching of IoT subscription between networks is achieved by the integration of the two commonly deployed eUICC platforms that are the key component of IoT collaboration across borders.

China Telecom and Telenor Connexion will cooperate both commercially and technically to create new service models that support the global IoT opportunities. Telenor Connexion will be one of China Telecom’s preferred partners for connectivity in Europe and other Asian regions, while China Telecom will also be Telenor Connexion’s preferred partner for connectivity in China based on the DCP platform and ecosystem.

The companies have also agreed to explore the potential of enhancing existing IoT capabilities and the application of new technologies such as NB-IoT and LTE-M in the global market.
