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."
“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.
