Telenor has signed a strategic partnership with Google Cloud to further explore areas of cooperation and define key strategic initiatives, advancing Telenor’s digital capabilities.
Telenor says it continues to advance the modernisation of the telecommunications industry by digitalising and expanding its offerings – going beyond connectivity. As the network is increasingly software-based, Telenor says it is now exploring how to leverage Google Cloud’s expertise in data management, machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI/ML), as well as the company’s infrastructure, to bring together the complementary technologies to Telenor’s customers and society overall.
The partnership aims to provide Telenor with greater flexibility to meet its technology objectives.
“Telenor wants to work with leaders in the tech industry and stay committed to being at the forefront of modernisation and digitalisation. As connectivity is the foundation for building trust, we believe that together we can go beyond connectivity to enhance our offering to our customers with new and innovative solutions, whilst improving the overall experience of our current portfolio,” says Sigve Brekke, president and CEO of Telenor Group.
“We are delighted to collaborate with Telenor to bring together the strengths of both our companies and accelerate innovation in the telecommunications industry. We look forward to further driving Telenor’s ability to digitally transform its customers’ businesses with infrastructure, industry solutions and technology expertise—all on the cleanest cloud in the industry,” added Thomas Kurian, CEO, Google Cloud.
