Presidentes de Telefónica

2009

Great international activity by Telefónica: we increased our stake in China Unicom by more than 8%; we closed the acquisition of the German operator Hansenet; we acquired the IP communications platform JAJAH in the UK and we bought 22% of Canal+ in Spain.

‘Telepresence’ is here

01

Remote meetings as if they were real can now be held in all countries where Telefónica was present thanks to the simultaneous launch of the 'telepresence' service in 2009, with Cisco as a technology partner. High quality audio and video systems, with no delays in image or sound, as well as collaboration tools to enrich the meeting, made it possible to have a virtual meeting with the same naturalness as if it were a face-to-face meeting.

Telefónica's former chairmen, together on the Board of Trustees of its Foundation

03

Telefónica's former presidents have marked the course of the company at a given moment in its history. To honour their relevance and to benefit from their experience in promoting the social and cultural activities of Fundación Telefónica, in 2008, the Board of Directors, at the proposal of the Chairman, César Alierta, approved the incorporation of these personalities to the Board of Trustees of its Foundation. For this reason, Antonio Barrera de Irimo, Salvador Sánchez-Terán, Luis Solana, Cándido Velázquez-Gaztelu and Juan Villalonga meet for the first time in an institutional and unique event in the Telefónica District. And a month later, in an even more famous act, the King of Spain received them at the Zarzuela Palace.
