Nokia and STL aim to strengthen enterprise connectivity for 5G, IoT, augmented reality, data centres, real-time data analytics and Gen AI use cases

Nokia partners with Indian digital technology company STL to strengthen business networks by providing high-speed, high availability and low-latency connections.

These solutions will provide better efficiencies for 5G, the Internet of Things (IoT), augmented reality (AR), data centre interconnections, supply chain efficiencies and real-time data analytics, in addition to generative AI (Gen AI) use cases.

Both companies also plan to offer enhanced networking and digital solutions for both government and businesses in a range of key industries, including manufacturing, healthcare, retail, banking, critical infrastructure and rural broadband projects.

Likewise, they will be exploring 5G use cases and compelling solutions for data centres.

Driving innovation and enhancing business connectivity

During this new and ever-evolving era of digital transformation, businesses - including those within the data centre sector in particular - are keen to better succeed in the digital era and efficiently deploy solutions for data centres and hyperscalers.

In considering this, Nokia and STL aim to address the emerging requirements of businesses across multiple industries to focus on use cases to improve customer experience. These could include multi-service premise edge connectivity, intelligent premises and predictive operations.

STL is a leading global optical and digital solutions company that provides advanced offerings to build 5G, rural, enterprise and data centre networks. The company is dedicated to finding new solutions to improve data centre operations, particularly within the telco and connectivity space.

“This partnership with STL is aligned with our commitment to accelerate digital transformation across industries and governments,” says Vinish Bawa, Head of Emerging, Webscale and Enterprise Business in India at Nokia.

“With STL's extensive expertise in end-to-end network solutions and Nokia’s experience in deploying mission critical networks, we are well-positioned to redefine enterprise connectivity in India.”

Advancing networking solutions for Industry 4.0

By also focusing on government-driven connectivity projects, customers will be able to reap the benefits of Nokia’s existing B2B technology portfolio, in addition to STL’s system integration capabilities. 

In fact, STL aims to offer state-of-the-art connectivity solutions for core infrastructures and Managed Services, alongside Nokia offering next-generation networking solutions for IP and Optical networks.

In this collaboration, both companies also aim to accelerate the Industry 4.0 revolution and its potential for businesses by leveraging these solutions. The goal is that enterprises can gain a competitive advantage and continue to better utilise disruptive technologies such as AI to drive data centre transformation.

Nokia is consistently working to improve global connectivity for customers and businesses worldwide. At MWC Barcelona 2024, the company announced a similar partnership with Wipro to unveil a secure 5G private wireless solution that offers end-to-end security.

Additionally, Nokia is also a member of the newly formed AI-RAN Alliance, which has been established by key connectivity players to help businesses in their 5G journeys towards future 6G developments with the power of AI.

Praveen Cherian, CEO of Global Services Business at STL, says: “We are thrilled to collaborate with Nokia. STL's extensive experience in connectivity solutions, coupled with Nokia's technological strength in 5G and IoT, creates a synergy that has the potential to redefine enterprise connectivity and transform industries. 

“Together, we envision empowering enterprises to reach their full potential.”
