Nokia Obtains U.S. Software Provider SpaceTime Insight

Nokia this week claimed that it has obtained SpaceTime Insight, the software maker that industrial clients take help from to manage billions of assets and devices all over their networks. This marked the latest move of the equipment supplier to extend further than telecom companies.

Conditions of the agreement were not revealed.

SpaceTime provides analytics and monitoring applications to users in the logistics, energy, utilities, and transportation sectors to run processes more cost effectively by lowering the requirement to send out repair trucks and decreasing service outages.

Amongst over 2 dozen major clients of SpaceTime, a Silicon Valley-based decade-old firm, are Union Pacific, FedEx, NextEra Energy, Entergy, and Singapore Power, claimed Nokia.

Chief executive of SpaceTime Insight, Rob Schilling, will join the product unit for Internet of Things (IoT) inside the business group of Nokia Software. The firm has lifted almost $50 Million in private finance, as per the media reports and sources.

Nokia has made various medium-sized to small-sized acquirements as fraction of a plan to build up a separate software business to provide higher profit in comparison to its traditional communications hardware goods.

“Conventionally, most networking firms make software to trade more networking tools,” claimed Bhaskar Gorti, Nokia Software President, to the media. “This is a growth into the B2B part of the market,” he claimed to the media in an interview.

Only almost 20% of its sales are attacked to Nokia telecom tools, Gorti claimed, with rest of the 80% traded on a separate basis, both to non-telecom clients or to network operators employing rival tools.

Speaking of Nokia, the firm recently claimed that Indian telecom providers will start field test of 5-gen of 5G tech in India. This comes after the fact that 5G lab test has already begun and will also pick speed in 2018 as telecom companies seek to gear up themselves for the next tech.
