Telenor and Google Cloud partner to digitalise telecom operations

Telenor and Google Cloud have formed a partnership to digitalise the Norwegian telecom company’s global operations.
Telenor grows in AsiaTelenor will use Google Cloud’s services to boost Telenor’s own IT and network.

Oslo-based Telenor serves 172 million customers with roughly half its revenue generated in Asia and half in the Nordics.

The digitalisation project will mean a big transformation for Telenor, but is also part of its ambition to find new revenue streams, Telenor CEO Sigve Brekke said.

Digitalising the core operations of a telecommunications company as large as Telenor is new to Google Cloud and so are the joint customer offerings, said Thomas Kurian, CEO at Google Cloud.
