Nokia has announced that its partnership ecosystem is preparing to introduce local 5G/private wireless LTE to industrial as well as government customers in Japan.
By the end of December, the spectrum designated for local 5G will be released for enterprise use. The firm will help to boost IoT for industries in Japan by uniquely offering an end-to-end industrial-grade private wireless portfolio. By the end of 2019, the Japanese government will be launching the 5G spectrum specially designated for individual companies and local governments.
The company has also formed a partnership ecosystem with five leading firms spanning a number of segments that includes Hitachi Kokusai Electric for smart social infrastructure and smart cities with video solutions, NS Solutions for factory IoT, Internet Initiative Japan for Full MVNO, Equinix for multi-cloud and global data centers and Marubeni for global IoT. With the help of these strategic alliances, enterprise customers get the opportunity to explore end to end, reliable, secure, low-latency connectivity powered by Nokia’s technologies and solutions.
Earlier, Nokia and AT&T announced their partnership on a new innovation studio in Germany in order to boost the growing worldwide adoption of current and next-generation Internet of Things solutions. The studio will offer a chance to business to meet with experts and work together on solutions to global business challenges.
Sanjay Goel, president of global services at Nokia said: “The collaboration will help set the stage for the evolution to global 5G and network slicing that allows a single network to be partitioned into multiple networks and deliver specific capabilities to certain IoT customers without impacting their entire network."
