Elisa, a Finnish pioneer in telecommunications and digital services, and the Swedish telecom challenger Tele2 AB (”Tele2“) (Nasdaq Stockholm: TEL2 A and TEL2 B) have started a cooperation that enables efficient service management for enterprise networks in the Nordic countries.

The cooperation allows pan-Nordic enterprises to have one partner for communications and IT services in the Nordics and enable a common monitoring of enterprise applications. The cooperation also allows Elisa and Tele2 to provide customers with agile service management and fast fault management if needed.

– Cooperation with Tele2 is a great fit for Elisa. In addition to having excellent abilities in service management, Elisa and Tele2 also share common values. Sweden is a large market with several enterprises doing business in Sweden, Finland and globally. All in all, the cooperation complements Elisa´s global partner network excellently. With network automation and end-to-end service management, we are able to help customers monitor their business all around the Nordics, says Timo Katajisto, Executive Vice President, Corporate Customers from Elisa.

– The collaboration with Elisa will enable our enterprise customers to use our services for unlimited communication in the Nordic countries. Elisa is the first operator in Finland to launch 5G. Combined with our outstanding fixed and mobile network, I’m convinced that we together will become a very strong and attractive player in Nordic telecom market, says Fredrik Stenberg, Director Large Enterprise at Tele2.

Thanks to the cooperation, tailor-made service can be provided to companies doing business both in Sweden and Finland. Depending on company´s preferences they can utilize either local or global service. In addition to enterprise networks, the collaboration also includes mobile services and roaming in both countries.
