Labs and Philosophy

Research and innovation are part of our DNA.

A Key Element for Telefónica Cyber Security Tech

Our Labs’ aim is to innovate and develop in-house products and services; provide groundbreaking innovation that builds assets in the form of patents; transform the ideas that arise from the joint work of all the members of the company into operational prototypes; and research and disseminate knowledge in addition to bringing academia and industry closer in order to optimize resources.

WHAT’S OUR JOB?
