Nokia and Telefónica announce alliance to enhance digital transformation by deploying private wireless network solutions and platform solutions

An alliance between Nokia and Telefónica will deploy Nokia’s end-to-end portfolio of private wireless solutions and digitalization platform solutions. These will accelerate digital transformation, providing broadband connectivity with lower latency, greater predictability, and higher security, compared to alternative options. 

Covering Hispanic geographies, the alliance will focus on promising areas like ports, mining, energy, and manufacturing. 

Juan Vicente Martín, Director for B2B at Telefonica Movistar Empresas Hispanoamérica, said: “In this unprecedented alliance, the benefits of LTE & 5G private wireless will enable Industry 4.0 across industries. With our strategic partner Nokia, we provide the best connectivity, and enable greater optimization of operations. This leads to achieving important productivity and efficiency rates. It also contributes to the digitalization of the industrial sectors throughout Latin America.” 

Nokia is consistently being selected by several industries, establishing a reputation as the backbone of digital transformation projects. It has deployed mission-critical networks to more than 2500 leading enterprise customers in the transport, energy, and manufacturing sectors. According to a recent survey, nearly 80 percent expected to achieve ROI within six months of deployment.
