Nokia's new worldwide IoT network grid (WING), announced Friday, aims to help large enterprises more effectively manage their connected assets as they move from country to country. In a press release announcing the grid, Nokia billed it as a "one-stop-shop" service for IoT and connectivity efforts.
As with many management service, WING's goal is to simplify the way an enterprise deals with its connected devices, especially dealing with the complexity of assets that may traverse the globe, the release said. Whereas businesses would typically need to rely on multiple vendors to manage such a deployment, WING gives them a central location to handle it all.
"IoT connectivity as a managed service is an answer for enterprises to the current IoT deployments that are hampered by the patchwork of business agreements to connect devices around the world. Nokia WING will provide one global IoT grid," Igor Leprince, head of Global Services at Nokia, said in the release.
Alexandra Rehak, head of Ovum's IoT Practice, said in the release that Nokia WING "offers a new approach to helping service providers extend their existing network and partnership agreements and quickly address new markets while focusing on their core competencies."
