Nokia and Hewlett-Packard Enterprise (HPE) are to jointly market and sell IoT applications for industry, manufacturing and smart cities.

The pair said they would provide industrial and manufacturing customers with solutions for asset management, smart manufacturing, remote site automation and predictive maintenance.

They will offer enhanced networking for smart city solutions, including smart lighting and smart buildings, and are currently working on a proof-of-concept for smart cities that combines Nokia's routing capabilities with HPE’s hybrid IT capabilities.

New solutions will focus on connectivity, core networking, data aggregation and compute technologies, they said.

The deal, which will see joint activities from early next year, sees HPE join Nokia’s IoT Community programme, and Nokia join HPE’s IoT partner programme.

It also extends their existing partnership, which has so far covered deals with 25 enterprise and operator customers, and around 30 technical proofs-of-concept.

Kathrin Buvac, Chief Strategy Officer at Nokia, said: “HPE’s market presence offers Nokia expedited and increased access to the enterprise market and target verticals along with a complimentary portfolio of products and services.”

Last month, the Finland-based vendor unveiled a new four-part growth strategy following three years of declining revenues, and a hard-felt structural reorganisation.

Antonio Neri, Executive Vice President and Head of Enterprise at HPE, said: “The addition of Nokia to the HPE IoT partner ecosystem will bring broader choice and market-leading technologies to our joint customers.

"HPE and Nokia have a long history of innovation that will help our customers through their journey of digitization.”
