In a run-up to the proposed 5G technology launch in India, technology major Tech Mahindra has joined ranks with Finnish telecom gear maker Nokia to deploy 5G-based solutions for business organisations.
The Centre is in the final stages to formalise modalities regarding the auction of the 5G spectrum for a possible early rollout later this year. Meanwhile, under the new partnership Tech Mahindra will leverage Nokia’s private wireless DAC (digital automation cloud) solution for customers across industries and facilitate in automating 5G private wireless network management on a cloud computing system and enabling them to deploy the internet of things like technology.
The partnership comes days after top IT company Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) joined hands with telecom company Bharti Airtel to build a 5G-based remote working technology using robotics.
“5G adoption has become critical for enterprises to achieve the next level of industrial automation and digital transformation that enable a higher level of productivity and reduce operational complexity and costs. We are pleased to partner with Nokia as we continue to build the 5G ecosystem, and drive innovation and growth in the future,” Manish Mangal, Tech Mahindra global head of 5G & Network Services Business, said.
Nokia DAC will also enable access to other network management and operations solutions and integration with the third-party applications in the network. “Nokia has supported the digital transformation of over 380 enterprises globally with our private wireless offerings. We are excited to collaborate with Tech Mahindra to bring our global private wireless expertise to upgrade their offering and customer experience worldwide,” Nokia head of global enterprise business Chris Johnson said.
