We believe that our solutions have an important role in building sustainable future. Our technologies enable ultra-fast and reliable broadband networks leading to high connectivity that allows for example less business travel and more remote work. Similarly, our information and video security solutions enable smart, safe, and smooth mobility especially in the urban environment and encourage the use of public transport.
