Nokia launches smart city platform, services, IoT management tools

At Mobile World Congress, Nokia will highlight its efforts to better target smart cities and enable various services.

Nokia launched a set of services and technologies to manage a smart city's video surveillance, network, Internet of things sensors, parking and environment.

The effort by Nokia revolves around creating a framework and platform to knit together various services. Technology vendors such as Cisco, Huawei, Verizon and others are all targeting smart city management. IDC estimates that smart cities will spend $135 billion on technology by 2021.

For Nokia, the moving parts include the following:

  • IoT for Smart Cities, which is a modular integrated framework to unify smart city management consoles and scale up services. Nokia is arguing that its Integrated Operations Center can orchestrate a city's technology and drive revenue as well as save costs.
  • Sensing as a Service, which offers analytics and data services for IoT networks. Sensing as a Service could spot everything from illegal construction to environmental changes. The effort uses blockchain to enable smart contracts.
  • S-MVNO (secure mobile virtual network operator) for Public Safety enables cities to offer broadband services to public safety agencies.
