Nokia brings Presence to TeliaSonera Finland


Espoo, Finland – TeliaSonera Finland has selected Nokia to provide its solution for Presence, the service that allows mobile users to inform callers about their availability, whereabouts, and preferred means of communication.

The first service offered by TeliaSonera Finland will be “Sonera Olotila”, which is a person-to-person presence and information channel application. The service, to be launched today, can be used by all Sonera mobile phone customers at normal data transfer rates.

“We plan to stay as the forerunner of mobile communications, which is why we provide our customers with high-quality and innovative services, such as Sonera Presence, that make their everyday life easier” said Juhani Kivikangas, Director, TeliaSonera Finland. “The target group of the service is a new generation of users whose communication is community-based in nature and who find continuous, multi-channel communication important.”

“TeliaSonera is taking an important step in expanding the scope of its service offering, and we are happy to play a role in this work,” said Ilari Salomaa, Head of Sales, Nordic region, Networks, Nokia. “Presence is a mass-market service with high growth potential. It enables easier, richer, and more discreet communication between mobile users, and gives operators such as TeliaSonera an important competitive advantage.”

The Nokia solution supports Presence service based on OMA Instant Messaging and Presence Services (IMPS), as well as IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) based Presence, which makes Presence info available also for other multimedia services.
