Nokia and the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to develop IoT based applications.
As per the MoU, Nokia will join the university’s UTS: Rapido, a new technology development unit, and collaborate on developing IoT-based business applications using high-speed, ultra-low latency technologies such as 5G. Nokia and UTS will also explore the expansion of the advanced engineering activity into new areas of innovation and poof-of-concept development.
The MoU covers the creation of a collaborative innovation and training facility at UTS, for which Nokia will provide IP routing, optical, fixed and 4G and 5G mobile network components, and applications and analytics platforms for project work and training. Nokia will also participate on the UTS Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology advisory board.
Myriam Amielh, associate dean, External Engagement, UTS said, “We are delighted to extend our working relationship with Nokia. UTS aims to link with major industrial innovators and deliver outcomes that translate ideas into viable products and solutions, leveraging advanced technologies. This association will allow us to contribute our expertise in areas such as 5G, IoT and data analytics, through UTS: Rapido, to help Nokia’s customers unlock the potential of emerging digital capabilities.”
Ray Owen, head of Oceania at Nokia said, “The successful implementation of IoT and the connectivity of potentially billions of devices will rely on the deployment of technologies such as enhanced 4G and high-speed, low-latency 5G. Through this collaboration with UTS we can share both our expertise and our technologies, and help drive Australia’s digital transformation. In turn, we will benefit from gaining even greater insight into how IoT can be applied to solve the real-world issues of our customers.”
