DNA to provide KONE with wireless network services


DNA will provide KONE Corporation with WLAN services for hundreds of offices worldwide.

The three-year contract concluded between DNA and KONE includes WLAN deliveries as a full service. The contract covers design, installation and maintenance.

“We are constantly seeking ways to work smarter and do things better. Providing an easy-to-use, reliable and secure wireless network for our employees and people visiting our offices worldwide is a natural part of this goal,” says Antti Koskelin, CIO at KONE.

“The role of WLAN in corporate network solutions is increasingly significant. A recent telecommunications industry review report* states that up to 75 per cent of fixed network connections are used through WLAN. We deliver solutions like this to international companies like KONE in cooperation with our strong partner network on a turnkey principle,” says Hannu Rokka, Senior Vice President, DNA Corporate Business.
