Optus Teams Up with Nokia in Joint Go-to-Market for IoT Solutions
Optus has selected Nokia’s IMPACT Internet of Things (IoT) platform to provide device management and data collection capabilities to their customers.
Both companies have agreed on a joint go-to-market strategy to bring IoT solutions to Optus customers across multiple industry segments in Australia.
Nokia’s industry leading IoT Device Management Platform (DMP) will enable Optus to provide its customers with simple access to Narrow Band-IoT device data, from low power devices, and remote device management at scale. This can be done regardless of device type. Nokia and Optus will work together to help create smart cities and support enterprise customers across industries, including mining, utilities and transportation.
Anticipated industry applications include cost effective waste management, supply chain optimization, logistics management and scene analytics for improved safety and security.
The alliance builds on Nokia’s longstanding relationship with Optus. Nokia is working collaboratively with the operator to manage and maintain its network infrastructure. The two companies launched Australia’s first 5G commercial services in early 2019, making Optus the first operator globally to deploy Nokia’s FastMile 5G indoor gateway in a live network. Nokia and Optus also successfully launched a 5G Fixed Wireless Access service using the 5G New Radio standard.
