Hrvatski Telekom (T-HT) became one of the first operators in Europe to launch cloud services, all available via ictmarketplace.hr (T-HT’s online application store for cloud services). T-HT’s cloud offer includes Software as a Service (SaaS) products such as Cloud Human Resources, Cloud Fleet Management, Cloud Call Centre, and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) such as Cloud Server, Cloud Computer, Cloud Exchange Mail and Cloud Storage.
It was the first company within the DT Group to offer to its customers, in 2006, the IPTV service called MAXtv, which is according to Informa report one of the three most successful services of this type in the world.
In March 2012, Hrvatski Telekom launched the first commercial 4G/LTE network in Croatia.
Hrvatski Telekom is taking on a pioneering role within the Deutsche Telekom Group by testing the new TeraStream architecture, a network technology that relies on a cloud-based IP architecture. TeraStream significantly reduces the IT complexity of existing networks with the cloud concept greatly facilitating network administration and management. TeraStream has been developed to deal with the rapidly increasing volume of data traffic – now and in the future.
