Hutchison 3 engineers will be using virtualized Nokia Worldwide IoT Network Grid (WING) managed service offer to support its Indonesian enterprise customers across various industries to launch IoT solutions affordably.

Enterprise customers will be able to manage their IoT devices real-time, using the cloudified IoT core network, a single global connectivity management platform and 24/7 IoT command center capabilities.

Nokia said the deployment of Nokia Worldwide IoT Network Grid will enable secure operations, comprehensive service level agreements, whilst providing real-time insights, allowing enterprise customers to manage and adjust the connectivity according to their specific needs.

The contract follows the Indonesian government setting out its vision to become a regional technology hub in Southeast Asia by 2020. The country’s “Making Industry 4.0” provides a roadmap for major innovations in the digital technology economy.

Hutchison 3 aims to provide pre-packaged IoT solutions targeting agriculture, livestock management, asset management and logistics. Hutchison 3 will cooperate with other WING operators around the world to better provide delivery of IoT services for global enterprises in Indonesia.

“Indonesia has ambitions to be the economic powerhouse of Southeast Asia and our ability to provide IoT to a broad range of key sectors means businesses across the country can compete on the global stage,” M. Danny Buldansyah, vice president director of Hutchison 3 Indonesia, said.

Ankur Bhan, head of Nokia WING, said: “As more operators realize the unique opportunity IoT brings to win new enterprise customers, Nokia WING continues to advance their prospects.”
