By Ken Briodagh October 19, 2017

In a recent release, Nokia and Bosch Connected Devices and Solutions have announced a new strategic partnership designed to enable enterprises and Communications Service Providers to more easily deploy industrial IoT solutions from sensors through to applications.

“Bosch is the world's leading smart sensor manufacturer, and we are delighted to have reached a strategic agreement with them,” said Laurent Le Gourierrec, head of strategic partnerships, Nokia. “This combination of devices, connectivity and services from two worldwide leaders will allow for the rapid deployment of large-scale, innovative IoT applications.”

As described in the statement, the early phases of the partnership will focus on asset tracking, predictive maintenance and environmental monitoring use cases, with the companies currently doing several customer trials in Europe, the Middle East and Africa and commercially available solutions expected in early 2018. Nokia has agreed to provide its IoT connectivity, IMPACT/Netguard secure IoT Cloud platform and WING for IoT connectivity services using the ecosystem of mobile operators and sensing services. Bosch will provide smart connected sensor devices to enable industrial customers to improve equipment efficiency and safety. The intelligent devices measure and transmit relevant environmental data based on high-quality Bosch MEMS sensors embedded in an energy-efficient architecture.

“We are excited to announce this strategic partnership with Nokia,” said Dr. Markus Lang, CEO, Bosch Connected Devices and Solutions. “With our companies' complementary offering, Nokia is the perfect partner to build comprehensive IoT business solutions. We strongly believe that collaboration and interoperability are key enablers to scale IoT solutions. This cooperation is a major milestone on the way.”
