Telenor Connexion, the leading enabler of connected business solutions, is strengthening its presence in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. With a new office in Dusseldorf and a team of IoT experts, the company is responding to the increased demand for connected business solutions in the German-speaking countries in Europe.
Experts predict that by 2020, M2M technology will be a key competitive factor for Germany. About three quarters assume that M2M technologies will prevail, particularly in the automotive industry as well as in transport and logistics. Over two thirds also believe that the technology arrives in safety engineering and monitoring. 57 respectively 47 percent believe that as early as 2020, the theme will play a central role in production and engineering.

The increased demand for connected machines and facilities is also reflected by the German federal government’s Industry 4.0 initiative – the digitalization of the industry.
To respond to this increased demand, Telenor Connexion has taken a strategic decision to increase its focus on the German-speaking countries in Europe. Head of Market & Partner Strategy for the German region, Andrea Sroczynski, has established Telenor Connexion’s presence in the German market since 2011. With a new office in Düsseldorf and several additional IoT experts, the company is ready for substantial growth.
”We see a strong demand in the German-speaking region that is driven by the Industry 4.0 initiative and increasing customer awareness. With our solution, Telenor Cloud Connect, we reduce the complexity of connected solutions and – through partnerships – offer everything from hardware to web-based software from a single source. All in order to enable the safe operation of value-added client solutions”, said Andrea Sroczynski.
