Nokia is extending its device management leadership into IoT with the launch of the Intelligent Management Platform for All Connected Things (IMPACT), which gives operators, enterprises and governments a secure platform on which to scale new IoT services.
IMPACT handles data collection, event processing, device management, data contextualization, data analytics, end-to-end security and applications enablement for any device, any protocol and across any application.
The new platform, which reflects Nokia’s increasing focus on the fast-growing IoT market, includes Nokia’s Motive Connected Device Platform, the industry’s leading converged device management platform.
Nokia hopes its new IoT platform will have a big IMPACT
It provides lifecycle management for more than 80,000 models of broadband, home and IoT devices. The latest edition, released today, integrates all Nokia mobile and IoT device management software.
Nokia IMPACT comes with comprehensive capabilities for all things connected:
Bhaskar Gorti, president of the Applications & Analytics Business Group at Nokia, said: “Our new IMPACT platform with Motive CDP is particularly strong in device management, security and analytics. 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.”
IMPACT adds to Nokia’s rapidly expanding IoT portfolio that now contains the four major building blocks of every IoT solution:
In February, Nokia announced its IoT Community to help customers develop, test, and implement new IoT business models and launched a USD 350 million IoT investment fund.
