FREMONT, CA:

 

 

Telecom Egypt and the global Nokia Corporation have inked a collaboration agreement with the goal of developing the first infrastructure in Egypt to provide Internet of Things (IoT) services via Nokia's global network (WING).

According to a statement released by the Ministry of Communications on Monday, the (WING) network enables Telecom Egypt to provide Internet of Things services to companies on a global scale, allowing them to benefit from the rapidly and effectively growing Internet of Things market based on the Nokia model.

WING also enables Telecom Egypt to offer worldwide IoT services at low local prices, rather than the higher roaming rates.

 

Egyptian Minister of Communications and Information Technology Amr Talaat presided over the signing of an agreement between Telecom Egypt and Nokia International to establish Internet of Things infrastructure in Egypt.  The agreement also calls for cooperation in the introduction of collaborative marketing campaigns and the rapid development of Internet of Things projects in the country, which will help enterprises automate projects and minimise operational costs, increase productivity, and bring new services to market faster.

 

The agreement was signed during Minister of Information and Communication Technology Amr Talaat's visit to Dubai as part of a high-level delegation to take part in the 41st session of the "GITEX Global" exposition and conference, as well as "Expo 2020 Dubai."

 

Adel Hamed, Managing Director and CEO of Telecom Egypt, and Henrik Fall, Nokia's Head of Cloud Services and Networks in the Middle East and Africa, inked the deal.
