Telenor Connexion, the leading global provider of embedded connectivity solutions, today announced that the company has opened a new office in Tokyo, Japan to support a growing demand for M2M (machine-to-machine) and telematics solutions in the Asia/Pacific region.
The company has already established itself as a leading global M2M provider in the region working with a number of prominent Japanese customers and several automotive OEM's.
- Japan is among the most mature M2M markets within the Asia/Pacific region. The opening of our office in Tokyo reinforces our long-term commitment to both Japan and the Asia/Pacific region as a whole. Telenor Connexion's expansion in Asia allows us to further assist locally-based clients with regional and global market opportunities, says Thomas Strandin, VP of Sales APAC at Telenor Connexion.
The office, located in Roppongi Minato-ku, Tokyo, is managed by Ola Olsson, Country Manager for Japan and Korea. Mr. Olsson has more than 10 years of experience in various sales functions within the Telenor Group and at Vodafone.
Mr. Olsson will work closely with customers and partners in Japan and Korea to strengthen existing relationships and identify new business opportunities.

My ambition is to supply a wide range of Asian customers with global M2M connectivity solutions - especially those requiring high performance for business and life critical applications. The opportunities in all vertical markets are growing and the Telenor Connexion team and I are ready to take on the challenge, says Ola Olsson, Country Manager for Japan and Korea at Telenor Connexion.
Telenor Connexion is constantly expanding its global market presence and has recently established an office in the US. The company already has offices in Sweden, UK, France and Switzerland.
