Our utility solutions can help you take full advantage of the Internet of Things while supporting and streamlining your mission-critical and business applications. They cover all key aspects of connectivity and communications, including gateways, network infrastructure, device and data management, and sourcing of endpoints. 


By 2020, utility companies will be managing more than 1.5 billion devices

New energy sources, regulations and market forces are changing the way electricity is generated, distributed, and consumed.
 
We can help you adapt and thrive with these changes by deploying an IoT-ready communications infrastructure. Our IoT offer combines proven fixed and cellular products from several domains, and IMPACT to enhance your ability to communicate with the grid.  
 
We support our offer with a dedicated services team and specialized Utilities Solution Lab. using tools and expertise to ensure that your solution suits your unique network, footprint and business needs.
 
The aim of our comprehensive infrastructure approach is to help you use IoT applications to better manage devices, access insightful analytics, manage demand, and increase capacity and control of distributed energy resources. We are working with an ecosystem of partners to rapidly implement these use cases and bring them to market.


Nokia utility solution building blocks

Communicating with the Grid

Low Power Wireless Connectivity enables connectivity all the way to the endpoint. It provides a cost-effective means of access for unpowered end points such as gas or water and reduces the need to deploy costly neighborhood area networks (NANs) to support powered endpoints.

​Ensuring Security

The NetGuard security portfolio uses security analytics and threat intelligence to protect the utility communications infrastructure and prevent infections. 

Enhancing Smart Grid Communications with IoT

The IMPACT (Intelligent Management Platform for All Connected Things) platform includes the Device Management Platform, Connectivity Management Platform and Application Enablement Platform. It unleashes the network’s ‘IoT capabilities to enable autonomous provisioning and remote device management, fault management, data collection and analytics, improved operations support, and new service creation.

Realizing the value of IoT

Our experts along with Bell Labs specialists in the utilities industry offer you comprehensive consulting, design, integration, cyber- and physical security design, maintenance, and managed services to help you realize the benefits and value of IoT. Our Utility Solution Labs provides a workspace that allows us to collaborate with utilities and partners to design, build and test the IoT networks and use cases of tomorrow.

The IoT Community ecosystem of the ng Connect program brings innovative companies together to collaborate on solution concepts, end-to-end prototypes, business models, and market trials.
