Alibaba Cloud picks Nokia to bolster edge cloud offering

Nokia and Alibaba Cloud have teamed up to enhance the Chinese public cloud services provider’s enterprise edge cloud capabilities, a move that it says will allow organisations to take advantage of wireless industrial IoT connectivity.

“We are excited to collaborate with Alibaba Cloud by bringing our global networking knowledge and enterprise digitalisation experience to enhance their cloud business service offering to a broader market of enterprise customers worldwide,” said Stephan Litjens, head of enterprise solutions at Nokia.

By integrating Nokia’s private wireless network solution within Alibaba Cloud’s service offering, enterprise customers can improve their productivity, reduce costs and accelerate their digital transformation.

Nokia Digital Automation Cloud (DAC) is reportedly a high-performance, end-to-end private wireless networking and edge computing platform that simplifies the adoption of enterprise industrial IoT.

“By leveraging Nokia’s private wireless solution, our enterprise customers will benefit from plug-and-play high-speed, low-latency and connectivity together with timely intelligence management and processing,” added Li Li, VP of Alibaba Cloud Intelligence.
