The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of those simple sounding buzzwords that has a mountain of complexity beneath it. As organizations take their first tentative steps into deploying IoT solutions, they quickly come face-to-face with all of this complexity, including connectivity challenges, security demands, and the ability to use the data that these smart edge devices create.
While Nokia may not immediately come to mind when you think IoT, the company’s long history in connectivity forms the foundation for its IoT go-to-market strategy — but it goes far beyond that starting point. The company has put together an integrated offering that includes connectivity (LTE and, in the future, 5G), private LTE for local connectivity, device management and security using its existing platform that presently manages over 1.5 billion mobile devices), and a new analytics and visualization platform as a result of their recent acquisition of SpaceTime Insight (which we covered last July).
The company’s vision is that IoT only becomes transformative when you can stitch all the connectivity, security, management, and usage pieces together. Together with its burgeoning ecosystem of partners, the company believes it can help enterprises put the pieces together to take IoT from a position of incremental to transformative value.
