Telia Carrier Provides Global IP Backbone for Ericsson IoT

Telia Carrier will provide backhaul and interconnect solutions to Ericsson's Device Connection Platform via a dedicated IoT backbone. The agreement enables IoT operators to connect via any of Telia Carrier's 220 IPX PoPs directly to Ericsson's Device Connection Platform in a single network hop.

"It's pretty clear that IoT needs its own backbone," says Brendan Ives, CEO of Telia Carrier. "It's one thing to connect the Internet of Things today, but if you consider we will soon be connecting smart cities and the cars that drive us, things are about to get real. Ericsson is one of the driving forces in IoT with the Networked Society. We are pleased to have been chosen to provide the connectivity it deserves."

Anders Olin, Vice President Product Area Network Functions with Business Unit Cloud & IP, Ericsson, says: "Our operator customers can now connect directly to our Device Connection Platform with a preintegrated, scalable & secure backbone solution. The combined offering from Telia Carrier and Ericsson is fully aligned to provide the SLAs demanded by business-critical IoT applications."
