Advanced Solutions



TELUS Insights uses an advanced approach to big data analytics that can help public and private organizations, as well as all levels of government make smarter decisions based on real-world facts. Our big data solution works with massive sets of de-identified and aggregated data continuously drawn from the physical world. As people move around, their cellular devices connect to different wireless towers. This network data provides insights. Using industry-leading privacy standards, TELUS de-identifies data and then aggregates and extrapolates this information into large data sets to reveal mass-movement patterns and trends. Big data analytics can be used by all sectors to strategically plan with confidence.

Key features

  • All data is strongly de-identified - meaning it cannot be traced back to an individual – and then aggregated and extrapolated into large data pools, ensuring privacy is fully protected at all times.
  • New real-world data is constantly captured across any time period, providing actionable insights that are both current and relevant.
  • TELUS Insights works with large sets of data drawn from the TELUS wireless network as people move around Canada and their wireless devices connect to different cellular towers.
