The tech giant Nokia has launched ‘WING’, its worldwide IoT (Internet of Things) network grid to help communication service providers and enterprises utilize IoT connectivity services. It is a full service model offering seamless IoT connectivity across technologies and geographical borders to address the transport, health, utilities and safety markets.
The company said, “Nokia WING will manage the IoT connectivity and services needs of a client’s assets, such as connected cars or connected freight containers, as they move around the globe, reducing the complexity for enterprises who would otherwise be required to work with multiple technology providers.”
Communication service providers can quickly take advantage of new business opportunities that will become available by joining a global federation of IoT connectivity services. For service providers planning to launch a new IoT business, Nokia can fast track time to market as WING also provides a full white label managed service model, allowing them to offer the service to their customers under their own brand.
Highlights of Nokia WING:
- Nokia WING is a managed service including provisioning, operations, security, billing and dedicated customer care from key operations command centers
- The Nokia WING service model uses the Nokia IMPACT IoT platform, with new e-SIM subscription management and Nokia M2M Core as-a-Service
- Operators benefit from fast time to market and new revenue streams
- Consumers benefit from faster and better IoT applications to help them in their daily lives
Commenting on the launch, Igor Leprince, head of Global Services at Nokia, said:
“IoT connectivity as a managed service is an answer for enterprises to the current IoT deployments that are hampered by the patchwork of business agreements to connect devices around the world. Nokia WING will provide one global IoT grid. We cannot do this alone, and we are reaching out to communication service providers across the globe to collaborate with us so that we can extend the benefits of the connected world to more industries.”
