Nokia introduces toolkit to boost Corteca developer ecosystem and expand applications for home broadband devices

  • Nokia Corteca Developer Toolkit simplifies and speeds the development of new home broadband device applications made available to operators through Nokia’s Corteca Marketplace.
  • Creation of new value-added applications for home broadband devices, allows service providers to generate new revenue streams, enrich user experiences, and boost the value of broadband offerings.
  • Nokia adds eleven new applications to its Corteca Marketplace, a cloud-based platform where service providers can browse, try, and install applications across Nokia broadband devices.

13 March, 2024
Berlin, Germany – Nokia today announced the release of the Corteca Developer Toolkit, an open-source software package that equips developers with essential tools to create applications that enhance broadband offerings in the home for service providers. The new toolkit from Nokia will help developers significantly reduce the time and cost of creating new applications for its Corteca Marketplace.

Service Providers are increasingly seeking home broadband device applications that can enhance broadband services and customer satisfaction. However, many are stuck having to find, sort, and test each application separately to ensure viability before individually contracting with each software provider. Additionally, third-party developers often have to customize their applications to each service provider’s network and type of device.

Helping bring application partners to new commercial opportunities, Nokia’s Corteca Developer Toolkit makes it easier for both operators and developers to create and deploy value-added applications. For third-party developers, the toolkit offers open-source software and a virtualization platform that lets them rapidly develop and test applications for use in Nokia broadband devices powered by Corteca device software. Developers can then load their applications into the Corteca Marketplace platform, part of Nokia’s Corteca Cloud, where operators can, try, install, or update any application across their network and broadband devices. Service providers can also centrally control what applications are accessible to their subscribers and track the usage and performance of each one that is installed.

Nokia is also adding eleven new multi-faceted containerized and cloud-based applications to its Corteca Marketplace. The applications cover a variety of use cases, including enhanced security, parental control, intelligent device fingerprinting, quality of experience optimization, FCC compliance, FWA optimization, packet sniffing, VPN services, and speed tests. Developed by Nokia or third-party partners, such as F-Secure, Domos, Netduma, and Gryphon, each can be installed on select Corteca-powered devices, such as the Nokia ONTs, the Nokia FastMile 5G Gateways or the Nokia WiFi mesh beacons.

Developers, partners, and service providers can access Nokia’s Corteca Marketplace and its 11 new applications starting in 2Q 2024.

Dirk Verhagen, head of Broadband Devices for Nokia, said: “The Corteca Developer Toolkit makes it effortless for third-party developers to quickly create, test, and launch new service provider applications. By tying this to the Corteca Marketplace, Service Providers can now have a single place to quickly access a diverse set of value-added applications that help unlock new revenue opportunities and foster competitive differentiation.”

Olav Nedrelid, CEO at Domos, said: “Remote working exploded during the pandemic, and the trend continues to grow. Combining the platform capabilities of the leading video conferencing services and Nokia’s Corteca software suite will allow us to help employers invest more in their employees’ home broadband and, with that, also help service providers monetize the growth we see in remote working and time shifting.”

Dmitri Vellikok, Vice President Embedded Security Business at F-Secure, said: “Nokia’s wide availability of broadband devices and access to a market of millions of connected homes is unrivaled. Joining forces with Nokia to run our applications was an easy decision, and we are excited about the potential this can have for F-Secure and the operators that decide to use our applications.”

John Wu, CEO, at Gryphon said: “Making Gryphon’s award-winning Parental Control and Network Security software easily available to millions of households is why we chose to partner with Nokia. They have a leading position in Fiber ONTs, 5G FWA, and mesh WiFi, plus the Corteca software suite is best in breed. This partnership expands our mission of empowering families everywhere to take back control over their Internet safety.”

Luke Barlow, CEO & Co-Founder, at Netduma said: “With home internet environments becoming ever busier thanks to high definition video streaming, work-from-home meetings and online gaming services, delivering the best possible quality of service so consumers can enjoy buffering-free video, smooth, lag-free gaming and non-stuttering web meetings is more vital than ever. All internet subscribers deserve to enjoy the ultimate quality of experience, and with millions of devices deployed, Nokia’s extensive reach into the home makes them an ideal partner to extend the reach of our SmartBOOST solution.
