Telenor and Telefónica partner to expand mobile offering for MNC customers

The incumbent carriers of Norway and Spain, Telenor and Telefónica, both of which have substantial international portfolios, have announced a partnership agreement that will see them join forces to serve their MNC (multinational corporation) customers in one another’s markets, with a particular focus on mobile services.

In a joint statement the firms said that Telefónica has more than 800 MNC customers, many of which require service in the Nordic markets in which Telenor operates; Sweden, Norway and Denmark. In return Telefónica can offer Telenor access to an extensive network portfolio of 19 markets throughout Europe and Latin America.

The agreement defines how Telenor and Telefonica will collaborate and support each other in the multinational market, covering rules of engagement, bid management, products and services, SLAs, and operational processes and systems, the firms said.

“This agreement enables us to be competitive and meet the increasing communications requirements from the big multinational customers,” said Kristin Skogen Lund, executive vice president and head of Nordic Region at Telenor Group. “Telefonica is a strong global partner with a good geographical fit to Telenor, and together we can offer a combined global footprint for our Scandinavian MNC customers.”

Do you agree public funding should be used to support mobile operators to more broadly deploy Open RAN?
