Tue 27 Feb 2024

Wipro and Nokia have announced a new joint venture to accelerate enterprise digital transformation through a secure 5G private wireless solution.

This solution aims to provide enterprises with real-time access to business insights and the capability to process vast amounts of data with minimal latency. By enabling an integrated private network environment, enterprises can improve performance management and security.

Jo Debecker, Global Head of Wipro FullStride Cloud, said: “We are proud to partner with Nokia to create a way for enterprises to leverage wireless private networks to digitise at speed and access real-time insights to realise their ambitions.”
