Telefónica, a multinational telecommunications company and one of the largest telephone operators and mobile network providers in the world, has introduced a new unit that integrates their global wholesale, roaming and international customer divisions into a new single identity: Telefónica Global Solutions.
Telefónica Global Solutions was established as part of the company’s transformation plan, which was announced last year. As stated by the group, this move will improve connections between people and businesses.
In the current environment of extensive change and new challenges, the Telefónica Group continues to move forward to improve its service to global customers. The three businesses are now banding together to increase their capacity and continue to support their partners and customers. With a single goal, they have their sights set on providing consistent and comprehensive services, and specifically to offer leading-edge global solutions to Telefónica’s customers around the world.
At present, Telefónica Global Solutions provides services to more than 1,500 customers in 170 countries through 400 roaming agreements and partnerships. It has 110 points-of-presence (PoPs) that annually transfer an average of more than 15 billion voice minutes and transmit 130 petabytes of roaming data. The division conducts direct sales in the U.S. and provides services to international companies in more than 20,000 locations worldwide.
Julio Beamonte, CEO of Telefónica Global Solutions, commented: “With Telefónica Global Solutions we not only reinforce our commitment towards our customers, supporting them in their own transformation and offering them innovative and global solutions all over the world, we also further align ourselves with the Group’s mission by putting people and companies at the center of everything.”
Earlier this year, Telefónica entered into a cloud and 5G edge-based partnership with Google Cloud and Microsoft, as the company migrates beyond the bounds of traditional telecommunications as part of its transformation process.
