Nokia helps enterprises develop new IoT revenue streams


Nokia is demonstrating at Mobile World Congress 2016 how its Internet of Things (IoT) related end-to-end capabilities support operators and enterprises in addressing numerous use cases and business models in the rapidly developing IoT market.

Nokia combines its network infrastructure with secure IoT connectivity, distributed cloud, as well as IoT platforms with applications and analytics. Nokia’s IoT services complement this with expertise to design, integrate and customize the IoT solutions.

“Nokia, together with an ecosystem of trusted partners, is now expanding the human possibilities of technology to domains of connected mobility with cars and drones, connected cities with smart parking, connected homes with residential gateways, connected healthcare, virtual and augmented reality, public safety and many more areas. Our broad suite of IoT solutions, ranging from vertical applications, cloud platforms, network connectivity and services, is at the heart of digitalising industries. We help both our operator and enterprise customers capture value from those use cases. Additionally, Nokia is innovating new business models that help our customers prepare for the massive amount of devices, sensors and connections, and business value that the Internet of Things will bring,”says Kathrin Buvac, Nokia Chief Strategy Officer.

Nokia’s demonstrations show how IoT will open up opportunities in connected mobility, smart cities, public safety and healthcare, the connected home, and many other areas. For operators, Nokia’s complete portfolio simplifies the management of IoT connections and the development of IoT applications.

Nokia’s IoT Community is designed to engage organizations from multiple industries in collaborating on new business models for IoT use cases. The Community aims to validate these models and expand Nokia’s IoT partner ecosystem for radio and device certification with leading device and application vendors. This collaboration will accelerate the delivery of IoT solutions and create more business value.

Nokia supports all three 3GPP IoT radio technologies** to meet the varying connection requirements of different applications. These technologies help provide low-cost connectivity, improve indoor and rural coverage and increase IoT device battery life significantly to support remote sensors and meters.
