Espoo, Finland – Nokia is demonstrating at Mobile World Congress 2016 how its IoT related end-to-end capabilities* support operators and enterprises in addressing numerous use cases and business models in the rapidly developing IoT market. Nokia combines its network infrastructure with secure IoT connectivity, distributed cloud, as well as IoT platforms with applications and analytics. Nokia’s IoT services complement this with expertise to design, integrate and customize the IoT solutions.

Nokia’s demonstrations show how IoT will open up opportunities in connected mobility, smart cities, public safety and healthcare, the connected home, and many other areas. For operators, Nokia’s complete portfolio simplifies the management of IoT connections and the development of IoT applications.

Nokia’s IoT Community is designed to engage organizations from multiple industries in collaborating on new business models for IoT use cases. The Community aims to validate these models and expand Nokia’s IoT partner ecosystem for radio and device certification with leading device and application vendors. This collaboration will accelerate the delivery of IoT solutions and create more business value.

Nokia supports all three 3GPP IoT radio technologies** to meet the varying connection requirements of different applications. These technologies help provide low-cost connectivity, improve indoor and rural coverage and increase IoT device battery life significantly to support remote sensors and meters.

* Nokia’s complete IoT portfolio consists of its Radio for IoT, Core for IoT, IMPACTTM for application enablement and connectivity device inventory and management, as well as partner products from its IoT ecosystem for connectivity management and related diagnostics. Nokia’s Mobile Edge Computing capabilities enable low-latency IoT use cases, such as connected mobility (also referred to as Car2X communications).

** Nokia supports three complementary technologies to enhance GSM and LTE radio networks for IoT connectivity:

  • NarrowBand IoT (NB-IoT) increases the coverage of LTE networks seven-fold and simplifies modems by 85% to support low data volume IoT applications over a wide area.
  • Providing the same coverage and modem simplification benefits as NB-IoT, Extended Coverage GSM (EC-GSM) addresses IoT markets in regions where LTE deployments are not widespread.
  • Enhanced Machine Type Communications (eMTC) complements NB-IoT by addressing demanding IoT applications with low to mid-volume data use of up to about 1 Mbps. The technology also simplifies modems by about 80%.

*** Nokia supports all current IoT device management standards, OMA, TR069, and LWM2M, and manages technology translations to emerging IoT application standards using HTTP and CoAP adapters.
