M2M communication creates a new revenue stream for carriers
The logistics and transportation industry is a large international business. It is also an area of new technology and opportunities. Many companies have now installed SIM cards in lorries and other transportation vehicles, making it easy to trace important cargo. This technology is, however, dependent on sufficient telecommunication solutions – creating a new revenue stream for carriers and mobile operators.
A new area of focus for Telenor Group is the machine-to-machine (M2M) services to national and multinational enterprises and organisations. Telenor Connexion will have a significant role within this growing business. Telenor Connexion is an independent mobile provider solely focused on M2M/Telematics communications. It is part of, and fully owned, by the Telenor Group, operating as a MVNO under Telenor Sverige AB.
Revenue stream
M2M communication is a rapidly expanding market. In Europe alone there are several billion devices that could potentially be connected. It is expected that the business will grow into billions of terminals within the next 10-15 years. Telenor Connexion estimates its share will be in the region of several hundred million terminals.
In order for International roamers to use the M2M solution, it is important that +883120 is implemented. The country code and identification code, +883120 should be routed to the international carrier, Telenor Global Services (TGS) in Norway. The M2M solution creates a new and important revenue stream for carriers implementing the code
Cost level
Telenor Connexion is not a satellite operator but a mobile provider, with similar cost levels as other mobile operators in Sweden. It is recommended that you add maximum 0, 01 € on top of the price that you receive from Telenor Global Services.

Even the companies that have an HR department have it with very limited resources and manpower. Thus these 2-5 member HR departments are mostly unable to work for enhancing the human capital of the organization and for considering the interventions related to high performance......
