Nokia Launches IMPACT IoT Platform
Nokia has introduced a new IoT services management platform in the form of its Intelligent Management Platform for All Connected Things (IMPACT).
Nokia states IMPACT “is for service providers, enterprises and governments wanting a secure application-independent IoT platform to quickly bring services to market”.
“IMPACT handles data collection, event processing, device management, data contextualisation, data analytics, end-to-end security and applications enablement for any device, any protocol and across any application,” Nokia states.
It also includes the latest edition of Nokia’s Motive Connected Device Platform, providing life cycle management for more than 80,000 models of broadband, home and IoT devices.
“Our new IMPACT platform with Motive CDP is particularly strong in device management, security and analytics,” Bhaskar Gorti, Nokia Applications & Analytics Business Group president, commented.
“These matter because as we work to collect and derive meaning from IoT data, it becomes more valuable to everyone involved – and more crucial to protect.”
Nokia has also introduced its new Smart Home solution, which it states “lets network operators quickly offer new services to residential customers seeking a digital home solution for the Internet of Things”, supporting an array of sensors, plugs and other connected devices needed for the delivery of home security, automation and smart metering services.
“Providing operators with a single box solution, Nokia’s smart home gateway lets subscribers easily monitor and control everything inside the home with a smartphone or a tablet, including temperature and motion sensors, door and window sensors, smoke detectors, light switches and security cameras,” Nokia states.
Nokia states that the smart home gateway will be available to operators by the end of 2016.
“The Nokia Smart Home solution offers operators the chance to get ahead of the IoT trend and provide customers with a simple plug-and-play solution that is fully interoperable with the leading Wi-Fi technologies and standards needed to manage smart devices and applications,” Federico Guillén, Nokia Fixed Networks president, commented,
“It will also help operators provide new smart home security and automation services that can generate additional revenue opportunities and further enhance customer loyalty.”
