Nokia has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Marubeni Corporation to develop, test and deliver the next generation of Internet of Things (IoT) services to its enterprise customers. The solution will be based on Nokia’s worldwide IoT network grid (WING).
Nokia WING will allow Marubeni Corporation, a Japanese multinational company with businesses in several sectors, including mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) operations through its subsidiary Marubeni Wireless Communication, to rapidly and efficiently provide complete global IoT services to its enterprise customers across its five business groups, including food and consumer products, chemical and forest products, energy and metals, utilities and transportation and industrial machinery. Such services could include fleet management, remote monitoring of industrial machinery, asset management and international logistics.
The Nokia WING globally distributed Core network and related managed services enable Marubeni Corporation to become a truly global IoT service provider, providing low latency services to their multinational enterprise customers.
Marubeni Corporation’s extensive experience in the MVNO/MVNE business in Japan will enable Nokia to better tailor the IoT offering to Japanese requirements.
Nokia WING is a ‘one-stop-shop’ IoT managed service that includes a pre-integrated global IoT core network, connectivity management, as well as dedicated IoT operations, billing, security and data analytics, along with an application ecosystem.
