iLOQ to start collaboration with Cellnex Telecom

iLOQ is proud to announce that it has signed a long-term framework agreement to be one of the favored priority suppliers for access control for Cellnex’s network of telecom masts and datacenters. The collaboration has started the deployments already by Q2 of 2020.

Providing services in Italy, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, France, Switzerland, Ireland, Portugal and Spain, Cellnex Telecom is the main infrastructure operator for wireless telecommunication in Europe and the number two telecom tower operator in the world.

Cellnex offers its customers a range of services to guarantee the conditions for reliable and high-quality transmission of voice, data and audiovisual content. It develops solutions in the field of ‘smart city’ projects that optimize services to the public via networks and services that facilitate municipal management, and also has a significant role in the deployment of safety and emergency networks for the security forces.

A smartphone as a key and power source

With security and efficient access control priorities for Cellnex operations, the Company recognized the quality and innovation of the iLOQ S50 product range. Designed specifically, for example, for facilities that are a vital part of the infrastructure, iLOQ S50 is a keyless solution. The energy needed for unlocking comes from a smartphone running the iLOQ S50 mobile app. Access rights can be updated remotely in real time, and multiple sites can be conveniently consolidated into one user-friendly and secure cloud-based software platform.

iLOQ S50 is also a battery-free solution. This will help Cellnex reduce maintenance costs and eliminate battery waste and the environmental impact of travelling between sites and administration offices to update access rights.

“This important agreement, which covers 7 countries in Europe, is yet another demonstration of the significant customer benefits our market-leading technology can provide. It is a huge milestone for the iLOQ S50 mobile access product line, and we are delighted to be able to support Cellnex in their quest to optimize security,” states Heikki Hiltunen, President and CEO, iLOQ.
