Nokia launches three smart city services to help operators meet digital city needs
In a bid to resolve challenges associated with urbanisation and help operators address digital city needs, Nokia has launched three smart city services - IoT for Smart Cities, Sensing as a Service and Secure Mobile Virtual Network Operator (S-MVNO) for Public Safety service.
Powered by cross-application data sharing, and analytics and automation, the first service, IoT for Smart Cities, is a fully integrated, modular and scalable framework to deliver and control smart city services including video surveillance, lighting, parking, waste management, and environmental sensing efficiently.
The blockchain-powered sensing as a service gives real-time environmental information and intelligent analytics which operators can sell to several parties including enterprises, public safety authorities and governments.
S-MVNO for Public Safety offers opportunities to operators for generating new revenue streams by leveraging their commercial LTE networks to offer mission-critical broadband services to public safety agencies.
Asad Rizvi, head of global services business development at Nokia, said: "Cities need to become digital in order to efficiently deliver services to their habitants. Smart infrastructure, which is shared, secure, and scalable, is needed to ensure urban assets and data are efficiently used. We can help cities with that. In addition, we can help operators generate new revenue utilizing their existing network by providing solutions for smart city players, such as city, transport, travel and public safety authorities."
At the Nokia Experience Center in Hall 3, stand 3A10, at Mobile World Congress 2018, visitors can know more about the digital city offerings.
Alongside this, Nokia and StarHub worked together to formulate mobility analytics use cases to help operators generate value from the data in their networks to address digital city needs. The integration of the user cases into the Nokia AVA cognitive services platform has helped Nokia to further co-develop and customise the solution to offer it to operators throughout the world.
