Nokia and Cap Gemini to Co-operate in Delivering End-to-End Mobile Internet Solutions

Nokia Networks and Cap Gemini have signed a Memorandum of Understanding. Cap Gemini will integrate Nokia products, service delivery platforms, service management solutions, and third-party customer-care-and billing systems. The two companies will co-develop Mobile Internet applications built on top of Nokia's service delivery platforms, such as Nokia WAP Gateway and Nokia Artus MAX, to be  offered to Nokiaís customers. These applications will include Mobile Internet applications over GPRS and 3rd Generation Networks. 

Combing Cap Geminiís expertise as a telecom and Internet systems integrator with Nokia's plug-and-play approach to Mobile Internet, the two companies will provide operators and service providers with pre-integrated end-to-end solutions, a shortened time-to-market, and an increase in cost-efficiency. Nokia Professional Services offer end-to-end solutions from the planning and building process to  operating a network, along with  developing, managing and optimizing network operations.

Mobileinfo Advisory and Comment:

This is a good marriage (if it is that or just a friendship with multiple partners in this brave new world). Telecommunications vendors need professional services expertise - it is not just towers and base stations that carriers and service providers need - they need working infrastructure that logically connects with communications software in ISP's boxes. That network integration needs skilled resources - that's where Cap Gemini may fill the gap (we said gap, not Cap!).    

Note: This news release may contain forward-looking statements. Readers should take appropriate caution in developing plans utilizing these products, services and technology architectures.
