Kyndryl and Nokia Team Up

IBM spin-off Kyndryl and network maker Nokia will collaborate on business networks based on LTE and private 5G.


Kyndryl and Nokia want to focus on, among other things, the digitization of factories using machine learning, AI and robotics. Networks are, of course, also needed to connect that technology, and that’s where the Finnish network giant comes in.

It mentions, among other things, LTE (4G), but especially private 5G networks. That is, 5G that, is separate from what the traditional telecom operators offer and is limited to one industrial park or factory site. It allows companies, among other things, to prioritize certain data traffic or to use very late latency (response time) in specific places.

Specifically, Kyndryl wants to use the Nokia Digital Automation Cloud application platform (DAC) in combination with its own consultancy, design, implementation and managed services. Kyndryl previously entered into such partnerships with Microsoft and Google around the cloud.

Remarkably, Kyndryl explicitly states that it now has more flexibility and freedom to partner with others. I was referring to the past relationship with IBM, which competed in many areas with some of Kyndryl’s new partners.

In addition to private networks, the two also look into edge cloud, IP networking, optics, fixed access and other network technology, especially targeting industry 4.0 environments.
