5G, Edge Computing Take Flight on Nokia’s IoT Platform

March 18, 2020 / Matt Kapko

Nokia is bringing a confluence of technologies to its managed service platform for IoT. The vendor’s Worldwide IoT Network Grid (WING) is now equipped to provide operators with access to 5G and edge capabilities on connected devices.The goal, according to Nokia, is to allow operators to offer 5G IoT services on a pay-as-you-go business model. The expanded framework also enables network operators to scale 5G IoT services quickly without requiring investments in infrastructure.
Nokia has also established a 5G WING lab in Dallas to give operators a testing ground for emerging IoT use cases, including connected vehicles, public services, real-time industrial monitoring and control, and remote health care. The ascension of IoT in 5G will enable operators to tap into new business models and industries that will place increased demands on latency, data, and security, according to the vendor.
