A memorandum of understanding (MOU) has been signed between Smart/PLDT and Nokia, Tuesday, March 12, 2019. The MOU is focused to pilot the deployment of fifth-generation (5G) wireless broadband technologies and services in schools.
You can recall that this is already the third partnership of the telco with 5G vendors this year. The first one was the Clark 5G City and this one is in partnership with Ericson. The second one is in partnership with Huwaei for the deployment of 5G in Makati.
Last night, another partnership was sealed. MVP and his executive team were present to sign the agreement with Nokia.
Under this partnership, PLDT and Nokia will collaborate in identifying innovative real world and enterprise-led 5G standalone (5G SA) solutions, such as artificial intelligence, interactive games, drones, and the Internet of Things (IoT) applications for use in schools.
“We are happy to partner with Nokia to help develop intelligent solutions and technologies for the benefit of the Philippine education sector,” said PLDT-Smart chairman and CEO Manuel V. Pangilinan.
