Engineers at mobile operators and master systems integrators can deploy IoT for Smart Cities solution from Nokia for launching new services rapidly.

In addition, engineers can also deploy Nokia’s Integrated Operations Center (IOC) to connect smart city operations for enhanced efficiency, faster responsiveness and improved decision making. Blueprint applications include video surveillance, smart lighting, parking, waste management, and environmental sensing, Nokia said.

Nokia said engineers can deploy Sensing as a Service to use data and analytics by offering data services to enterprises, cities, public safety authorities and governments. Operators can utilize existing base station sites, with Nokia deploying sensors and integrating all available site equipment into an IoT real-time monitoring platform.

City planners can use Sensing as a Service to detect unusual environmental behavior like illegal construction, trash burning or unusual particles in the air. Nokia is using blockchain technology for its Sensing as a Service.

S-MVNO (Secure Mobile Virtual Network Operator) for Public Safety enables operators to use their LTE networks to offer mission-critical broadband services to public safety agencies, and generate new revenue streams.

Asad Rizvi, head of Global Services business development, Nokia, said: “We can help mobile operators to generate new revenue utilizing their existing network by providing solutions for smart city players, such as city, transport, travel and public safety authorities.”
