Nokia and Kyndryl have signed a three-year extension and expansion of their global network and edge partnership, with a focus on developing and delivering LTE and 5G private wireless services and Industry 4.0 solutions. The companies had established their global network and edge computing alliance in February last year.
The partnership has since grown, with more than 100 active engagements with global enterprises, from advisory or testing, to piloting, to full implementation, across 24 countries, according to a statement by the companies.
Kyndryl, Nokia, and Palo Alto Networks will launch a joint lab in Raleigh, North Carolina. Through the collaboration, a multi-factor zero trust model for industrial networking is enabled at both the IT and OT sides of the network, according to the companies.
