Tele2 has signed an agreement with Nokia to provide Internet of Things (IoT) services to its Swedish corporate customers based on Nokia’s worldwide IoT network grid (WING).
Nokia WING is 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.
This five-year contract will enable Tele2 to offer IoT connectivity services to large companies in sectors such as transportation, healthcare, smart cities and utilities.
The agreement between the two Nordic groups also provides for a program of collaboration and joint innovation on various technologies such as 5G or Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT), in order to accelerate the adoption of the Internet of Things.
Ankur Bhan, head of WING at Nokia, said, “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. 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.”
