IoT for Smart Cities

Enabling the human possibilities of smart cities

Intelligent infrastructure and applications developed by and for citizens lead to smarter, safer and more sustainable cities.

Technology is empowering cities to respond quickly to demographic and economic shifts. However, smarter infrastructure and applications only make a difference when they enrich people’s lives. Responsive, flexible technology that works for humanity is what makes smart cities “smart”, creating a safer and sustainable environment.

Nokia is uniquely positioned to help governments, communications service providers and large enterprises deliver on the promise of smart cities. Our solutions are designed to provide shared, secure and scalable platform that ensures the best use of urban resources and data to enable the human possibilities of smart, safe and sustainable cities.

Working with an open partner ecosystem including diverse organizations - technology vendors, application developers, service providers, system integrators, utility companies, research institutions and others -, Nokia continuously explores new systems, applications, content, devices and services.
