China Telecom and Telenor Connexion celebrate the strategic partnership based on the common Internet of Things (IoT) Open Platform at the launch event of “eSurfing on the Silk Road, IoT with the World” in Shanghai, China. This common platform enables both companies to serve their respective customers throughout the combined footprints across China, Europe and other Asian regions.

The partnership will allow customers from China Telecom and Telenor Connexion to deploy IoT and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) services in 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 enjoy the benefits of the rapidly growing Chinese market by leveraging on China Telecom’s IoT network resources and business capabilities. The seamless switching of IoT subscription between networks is achieved by the integration of the two commonly deployed eUICC platforms which 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. Under this agreement, 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. Both companies also agreed to jointly 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.
