Verizon Is Top Telecommunications Company in Fortune Magazine’s 2012 List of World’s Most Admired Companies

Fortune magazine has ranked Verizon No. 1 in the telecommunications sector of the publication’s 2012 list of the World’s Most Admired Companies. As a leader in mobility, broadband and global connectivity, Verizon’s products help enable the relationships that make society possible.

In doing so, last year the company formalized a strategy called “Shared Success,” under which it will create long-term business and social value by bringing the transformational power of technology and innovation to the needs of its customers and communities.

The Telematics Conference focuses on how telecommunications are incorporated into vehicles as a means of providing functionality. This technology is a source of the status and behavior of a vehicle, and delivering services, including location-based services, safety and security, and other data to the vehicle’s occupants.

Verizon Wireless’ 4G LTE network enables advances in key components of Telematics, such as GPS systems, maintenance indicators, wireless Web access, hands-free connectivity and roadside assistance, along with other technologies and applications. The end result is a transformation of the vehicle into a combination of transportation and connectivity, making summer road trips all the better.
