Enables Tele2 IoT to offer global IoT connectivity services to large enterprises
Nokia and Tele2 IoT have entered a joint innovation and collaboration programme to enable the delivery of Internet of Things (IoT) services to Tele2 enterprise customers based on Nokia’s worldwide IoT network grid (WING).
The five-year deal will allow Tele2 IoT to “rapidly and cost-effectively” provide complete IoT services to its enterprise customers in fields including smart city, utilities, transport and healthcare to manage their connectivity needs and assets, such as connected cars or connected freight containers, around the globe.
Access to a worldwide IoT network enables Tele2 IoT’s enterprise customers to benefit from low latency, regulatory compliance, advanced enterprise onboarding and 24-7 troubleshooting offered as a managed service, said Nokia.
WING is intended as a one-stop-shop IoT managed service that includes a pre-integrated global IoT core network, connectivity management as well as dedicated IoT operations, billing, security and data analytics, along with an application ecosystem.
“Nokia WING is a unique concept for worldwide IoT enablement which will allow us to serve our enterprise customers better and differentiate our offering on a global scale,” said Rami Avidan, CEO of Tele2 IoT.
“We are excited about the prospect of helping our customers to easily deploy IoT services, driving new revenue growth opportunities.”
The scope of the agreement also includes the collaboration and partnership on various advanced technologies such as 5G, narrowband IoT (NB-IoT), LTE for machine-to-machine (LTE-M), SIM management and analytics to further accelerate the global IoT ecosystem.
“Nokia WING will enable Tele2 IoT to offer its enterprise customers a global service with flexible control, low latency and high levels of efficiency and enterprise automation,” added Ankur Bhan, head of WING at Nokia.
“Together we will work on enabling new IoT solutions that can be adopted in various industries to deliver seamless, reliable and efficient processes to help businesses run more intelligently.”
