Nokia, UTS collaborate on IoT tech projects

By

Nokia is joining a new University of Technology Sydney (UTS) technology development unit to collaborate on developing IoT-based business applications using high-speed, ultra-low latency technologies such as 5G.

Nokia has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with UTS under which it will join the Rapido development unit to work on advanced engineering projects that support the development of future network services to address specific tech challenges faced by service providers and enterprises.

According to Ray Owen, head of Oceania at Nokia, 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."

Myriam Amielh, associate dean external engagement, UTS, said the university aimed 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."

Rapido leverages the expertise of more than 200 researchers at the UTS Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology, with research conducted across a broad range of technology areas including data analytics, cyber security, 5G and IoT.

LAYER 1 ENCRYPTION A KEY TO CYBER-SECURITY SOLUTION

Security requirements such as confidentiality, integrity and authentication have become mandatory in most industries.

Data encryption methods previously used only by military and intelligence services have become common practice in all data transfer networks across all platforms, in all industries where information is sensitive and vital (financial and government institutions, critical infrastructure, data centres, and service providers).

Get the full details on Layer-1 encryption solutions straight from PacketLight’s optical networks experts.

This white paper titled, “When 1% of the Light Equals 100% of the Information” is a must read for anyone within the fiber optics, cybersecurity or related industry sectors.
