In particular, Telenor is improving its 3G coverage in towns and cities and is building new 3G stations where there is currently only 2G. The company is also well underway with expanding the next generation mobile network – 4G.
“The Norwegian people’s use of mobile phones has changed dramatically. Now more than 55 per cent of mobile phones in Telenor’s network are smartphones, and by the end of 2012 we expect that figure to have increased to 70 per cent. Telenor’s mobile network ensures high speeds and good capacity when people are surfing the net on their PC, tablet or mobile phone. Customers need to be sure that we offer the best coverage, quality and capacity, both now and in the future. That is why we are focusing on 3G expansion,” says Berit Svendsen, managing director of Telenor Norway.
LONDON, UK, 31 May 2012 - Infobip, one of the world’s fastest-growing mobile services providers, announced today it is opening two new regional offices in Dubai (UAE) and Sydney (Australia). Infobip already has major regional offices in Moscow, Johannesburg, Kuala Lumpur and Buenos Aires, as well as other smaller sub-regional offices across the world.
Dubai and Sydney are global economic powerhouses and headquarters of many enterprises and mobile operators, Infobip’s primary clients. Infobip CEO Silvio Kutic says, “Both cities are logical locations for our regional offices and we’re excited now that we’ll be able to fully serve our existing clients, but also present our mobile solutions to new audiences”.
London, 31 May, 2012 - PageOne Communications, the UK’s leading provider of mobile messaging solutions to the public and enterprise sectors, has seen an increase in demand for paging and messaging services among key organisations involved in the Games, including The London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG), who have selected PageOne and its 2-way Responder pagers to help diversify their communications offering for added resilience and security.
Running from 19 May to 9 September 2012, the Olympic and Paralympic games will present huge operational and logistical challenges for the Emergency Services, transport operators and businesses operating in the affected areas. Forward planning, resilient communications systems and the efficient coordination of people and resources will be crucial to successfully managing these additional pressures.
The speed, vast coverage and convenience of paging as a channel to broadcast updates and instructions to key staff are just some of the technology’s most alluring benefits. PageOne’s Responder pager combines these strengths with two-way messaging capability and further enhancements such as GPS location tracking and an SOS alert button, provides organisations with the tools to better manage and coordinate field-resource, whilst improving staff safety. With PageOne’s network being wholly independent of the mobile networks, paging adds diversity and an even greater level of resilience into the communications mix of any organisation.
“We’ve seen a number of organisations express concerns over the availability of the mobile networks in the event of a major incident during the Olympics” says Chris Jones, CEO of PageOne. “Wholly independent, the paging network is not at risk from incident-driven traffic overload that typically affects mobile networks, as was proven during the 7/7 terrorist incidents. Therefore, paging gives our customers the confidence and peace of mind, that they can maintain communications, without risk, throughout the Olympic Games.”
With an award winning network and pedigree in critical messaging, PageOne has a trusted reputation within the messaging industry. Having recently invested in two new geographically diverse data-centres located outside of the M25, PageOne have increased resilience and capacity to its services, a further declaration of commitment to its customers.
In preparation for the London 2012 Olympics, PageOne has also undertaken a review of its operations and support requirements and issued an Olympics Preparedness Statement to confirm that the business foresees no operational impact or extraneous challenges associated with the Games. The Olympics Preparedness Statement continues to highlight PageOne as an approved messaging provider under the Office of Government Commerce CATALIST Mobile Solutions (II) framework, having been subjected to an extensive commercial, technical and security vetting and approvals process. “Security, resilience and preparedness for planned and unplanned events, are key criteria in being selected as an approved provider,” says Nigel Gray, Sales Director of PageOne. “Our messaging services have played an important and integral role in helping clients manage their own operations and resource effectively, and will continue to do so during London 2012 Olympics and beyond”.
