Optus has selected Nokia’s IMPACT Internet of Things (IoT) platform to provide device management and data collection capabilities to Australian industries.
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.
Deon Liebenberg, Vice President of Product Innovation, Optus Business said, “By collaborating with global technology leaders like Nokia, we’re able to offer Optus customers more value and choice on how they manage their devices and networks. The combined power of Optus’ premium IoT network with Nokia’s state-of-the-art IoT platform, will deliver customers the flexibility to consume this innovative, carrier-agnostic solution as software as a service, platform as a service, or connectivity as a service.”
Anna Wills, Head of Oceania at Nokia said, “We will enable Optus to expand its offering in these markets, helping its customers to leverage the efficiency and productivity potential of IoT. We believe this agreement with Optus will help more companies build greater resilience into their operations.”
