Nokia Siemens Networks to develop M2M Smart Lab in Seoul

Will focus on R&D and collaboration

Nokia Siemens Networks (Espoo, Finland) announced yesterday plans to set up a Smart Lab in Korea focused on developing smart device-optimized applications, services and networks. The lab is expected to open in the first quarter of 2011.

According to the company, The Nokia Siemens Networks Smart Lab in Seoul will cater to both local and global markets. The lab will collaborate with operators and handset manufacturers in Korea to develop and optimize advanced services, applications and network infrastructure. The focus of the lab would include R&D and industry collaboration on advanced broadband wireless technologies that support industry trends such as cloud computing, M2M, smart devices and other new form factors.

While Nokia Siemens' M2M strategy isn't public knowledge, this play, along with the establishment of other Smart Labs in the United States and Finland, suggest a level of interest in this space on par with the company's competitors. According to Michael Mullineaux, Head of Services Marketing, "M2M is one initiative that we will be evaluating with customers, certainly more public data surrounding our plans will follow in the weeks/months ahead." In North America for example, Nokia Siemens has a close relationship with M2M solutions provider iMetrik (Montreal, Canada).

Nokia Siemens Networks recently also joined hands with Telefónica and Nokia (Espoo, Finland) to set up the Smartphone Experience Lab at the Telefónica premises in Madrid. The lab is exploring ways of ensuring the best user experience as smartphone use grows. It is specifically looking at the ideal configuration between mobile handsets, applications and networks to improve resource consumption, handset and application performance.
