Samsung cameras connect wirelessly to Telia Secure Storage

  • It’s now possible for customers using Samsung cameras to upload their photos directly to the Telia cloud service, Secure Storage, without using any cables. This new feature is a result of a development project between Samsung and Storegate.

    Samsung’s camera model ST200 have a built-in Wi-Fi connection. When Åsa Boström Category Manager at Telia planned a campaign with Samsung she saw the benefits of a wireless solution for the customer.

    – Selling cameras combined with our cloud service will give us new possibilities to show the strengths of Telia, says Åsa. When a customer has transferred the photos to Telia Secure Storage, the photos not only get secured in a safe cloud service, the customer can also easily share photos with friends and family through a web interface.

    To achieve the upload of photos to the cloud, Samsung is using the SOSA (Storegate Online Storage Application) API.

    – The API is used by several customers to connect to the SOSA platform, says Bertil Hedén, head of product development at Storegate. For example Telia also have a Digital TV solution integrated to the Secure Storage services using the API. This product allows customers to view their cloud uploaded photos on the TV screen without any hazel with cables.
