JT has signed an agreement with the national telecoms company of Andorra to work
together in areas such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and information security.
The cooperation programme will also promote the professional development of
employees. Staff will be seconded from JT to Andorra Telecom and vice versa to share
knowledge and experience, identify how the companies can work closer together, and
promote multicultural and dynamic working environments.
The agreement was signed in Andorra on Monday 11 December by JT Chief Executive
Officer Graeme Millar and his counterpart at Andorra Telecom, Jordi Nadal.
Mr Millar said: “Like JT, Andorra Telecom is a government-owned company that punches
above its weight on the international stage. We’ve both invested in full-fibre broadband
networks and are developing innovative IoT services to help devices connect with each
other automatically. This partnership makes perfect sense because we’re moving in the
same direction but still have a lot to learn from each other.
“It will also be an added incentive for staff in both companies to expand their horizons
and learn new technical, functional or managerial skills, and promote creativity,
flexibility, initiative and commitment. Ultimately, it is a win-win.”
Mr Nadal said: “From Andorra Telecom’s perspective, we’re particularly interested in
JT’s knowledge of networks, its work in the IoT space and the way it has expanded
globally. Equally, I hope our own experience in fibre-optic technology and information
security will be of great interest to JT.
“Although, geographically, Andorra and the Channel Islands are very different, as
telecoms operators, we face similar challenges and this new agreement will be insightful
and rewarding for both partners.”
