Nokia and Tele2 have signed a strategic partnership agreement to offer a global IoT connectivity solution for enterprises that simplifies the ecosystem for large multinational deployments and high bandwidth applications.

The partnership is centered around technologies from both companies, such as Nokia’s Worldwide IoT Network Grid (WING) and SIM technologies from Tele2 IoT.

Based on the Nokia WING platform, Tele2 IoT will launch an offering that will set enterprises free to develop their own global mobile IoT solutions and ensure a flexible long-term connectivity strategy for their IoT deployments.

Enterprises can have their own core network for IoT, delivered as-a-service. This network will be globally distributed and available in key regions, making it possible to achieve local benefits with low latency. Together with new SIM technology, this will enable enterprises to explore new use cases and improve and simplify the management and operations of global mobile IoT deployments.

The offering will minimize operations cost and maximize the control of an IoT deployment through a consistent and unified infrastructure for connectivity management, including the telecom standards for Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) technologies, such as LTE-M and NB-IoT.

Tele2 IoT plans to launch the offering to new customers in the third quarter of 2018.

Rami Avidan, CEO of Tele2 IoT
This is a very important partnership we are forging with Nokia. We want to simplify the global IoT connectivity ecosystem for large enterprises. The offering we will launch based on this partnership will create totally new growth opportunities and give the reliability that is needed for business-critical applications. 

Ankur Bhan, Head of WING, Nokia 
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.
