Caverion – Telia Company and Caverion launch international smart buildings collaboration – accelerating digitalisation of properties

Caverion has entered a collaboration with Telia in 9 countries. 


The agreement is in line with Caverion’s purpose to enable performance and people’s wellbeing in smart and sustainable built environments. Telia’s IoT technology will support efficient remote monitoring and indoor climate optimisation for Caverion’s customers.

In the digital customer platform, Caverion SmartView, Caverion will be utilising Telia’s sensors and Narrowband-IoT connectivity to monitor, for example, occupancy, indoor air quality, temperature and humidity in the facilities. The data, combined with building management system data and other sensor information, is visualised in Caverion SmartView, enabling its users to see at a glance how their building is performing.

“All of our customers are keen on reducing their energy consumption and costs, without compromising comfort. Digital solutions play a key role in optimising the building conditions and remotely monitoring them 24/7. Telia’s technology will support us in delivering sustainable solutions to our customers,” says Kari Sundbäck, Head of Services, Solutions, Digital​ and Sustainability.


“We build future-proof solutions for more efficient building performance and reduction of environmental impact. Telia’s IoT services are built on a centralized IoT-platform and help to enable cost and resource savings due to the minimising of unnecessary visits to sites or buildings and more prompt responses to incidents – which in turn increases both customer end-user safety and comfort as well to more sustainable operations,” says Kalle Mehtola, Head of IoT Sales, Telia in Finland.

  • Industrial IoT Solutions:
    • Industrial IoT (IIoT) involves collecting and analyzing sensor-generated data to support equipment monitoring and maintenance, production process analytics and control, and more.

  • IT & OT:
    • Information technology (IT) refers to anything related to computer technology, including hardware and software. Your email, for example, falls under the IT umbrella. This form of technology is less common in industrial settings, but often constitutes the technological backbone of most organizations and companies. These devices and programs have little autonomy and are updated frequently.
    • Operational technology (OT) refers to the hardware and software used to change, monitor, or control physical devices, processes, and events within a company or organization. This form of technology is most commonly used in industrial settings, and the devices this technology refers to typically have more autonomy than information technology devices or programs. Examples of OT include SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition).
    • => The main difference between OT and IT devices is that OT devices control the physical world, while IT systems manage data.
