Nokia and Singapore's StarHub are collaborating to pioneer new mobility analytics use cases to help operators create value from the data in their networks to address the needs of digital cities.
By integrating the use cases into the Nokia AVA cognitive services platform, Nokia said it has been able to further co-develop and customize the solution to offer it to operators around the globe.
Mobility analytics offers operators collaboration opportunities to create new services and revenue streams, with network data providing insightful reports on customer movements, behaviors and habits. By utilizing subscriber location information, operators are able to create value for digital city players such as city planners, transportation authorities and the travel industry.
For example, measuring commuting patterns enables authorities to plan more efficient roads and public transport networks. Business owners benefit from more effective advertising, targeting people in the vicinity based on their travel patterns, activities and personal interests. City authorities can identify the movement patterns of people to help decide where to build parks, shopping malls, recreational buildings and offices.
The Nokia AVA cognitive services platform enables the rapid creation of new use cases in different analytics domains, making it easy to run and scale projects. In addition, Nokia's enhanced geolocation capabilities will increase location accuracy and provide a complete picture of movement patterns.
