Our Story

We often say that we are passionate about making the impossible possible. But what do we mean by that?

The root of this mindset originates with our founder Jyrki Hallikainen and his vision to change the world through the unlimited opportunities of telecommunications technology. Over time, this simple yet powerful statement has become synonymous with of our way of thinking, and the essence of our values and company culture worldwide.

We are driven by our genuine curiosity and a desire to challenge the accepted norms. This pushes us to generate streams of ideas, to refine them and to boldly pursue them.

"We are passionate about making the impossible possible."

We bring the promises of a connected future to life

The world demands change now more than ever, and this is what we need brave technological innovation for. Yet, the aging systems around us often demand for things to stay the same, inhibiting progress. In this space of contradictory forces, our mindset of challenging the status quo has proven its strength.

Our platform based technologies are built to enable entirely new actions and opportunities for our customers. So that they can do something they couldn't before. Like embrace new business opportunities and uncover synergies through collaborative ecosystems. Or gain new insights from data and then translate them into savings from improved processes and fact-based decision making.

This, in essence, is the promise of IoT that we're making a reality.

Life as we know it has been built alongside streams.

Today we are proud to serve many sectors, industries and cities across the world by helping them make a difference where it matters. Whether it's through enabling truly global connectivity, taking care of natural waters or monitoring the water supply of metropoles populated by millions. It often comes down to enabling streams.

Streams of ideas, streams of data, streams of water, streams of information, streams of people - life as we know it has been built alongside streams.
