Telia Carrier has added another operator to its dedicated Internet of Things (IoT) Backbone. Global communications company Ooredoo has chosen Telia Carrier to provide IoT backhaul connectivity to Ericsson’s DCP platforms in Europe.

“Ooredoo is positioning itself as a leading Internet of Things provider across our regional footprint, offering the advanced solutions and powerful networks that enable businesses to launch a full range of smart services. Working with technology leaders like Telia Carrier ensures that our customers benefit from the security, reliability and flexibility they need to fully realise the benefits of this exciting new technology,” said Khalid Abdulla Al Mansouri, acting Chief Executive Officer, Ooredoo Global Services.

Telia Carrier’s IoT backbone connects operators’ IoT traffic directly to device management platforms in a single network hop. It is built on IPX architecture to segregate IoT traffic from the public Internet. This creates a secure transport layer and enables the CoS and QoS parameters required to meet the availability, latency and reliability demands of critical IoT applications.
