Telenor recognised as leader in the 2023 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for managed IoT connectivity
Telenor Group has been recognised as a Leader amongst nineteen managed IoT service providers in the 2023 Magic Quadrant for Managed IoT Connectivity Services, Worldwide report by Gartner.
This is the fourth time in a row Telenor Group is in the Leaders Quadrant in recognition of the company’s overall Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute. Just like last year, Telenor is the only Nordic operator recognised in the report.
Commenting on the report, Mats Lundquist, CEO of Telenor Connexion, says: “We believe that once again being recognised as a Leader is a result of our high focus and growth rate in IoT within Telenor. But above all we believe it reflects the trust and high ratings that we receive from new and existing customers, the ultimate proof that we are meeting their needs and requirements.”
Gartner describes companies in the Leaders quadrant as: “Leaders invest in the future of IoT that includes a continuum of value from IoT edge devices to IoT platforms and related analytics. Leaders perform skilfully and often exceed expectations. Leaders have a clear vision of the market’s direction and develop competencies to maintain their leadership. Leaders engage customers and provide value across multiple geographies. They shape the market, rather than follow it, and they often set the benchmark for market growth. Leaders have the size and scale (for example, operations, sales and marketing, formal bid, and product management) to pursue large pan regional and multinational opportunities for IoT connectivity. They have established a robust and diverse ecosystem of technology alliances and service delivery partnerships spanning IT, OT and IoT to meet broad market requirements.”
