The two European giants will combine their respective expertise in connectivity and manufacturing to provide a range of solutions for businesses.

Announcing the agreement this week in a joint statement, the pair confirmed that special areas of focus will be logistics automation and tracking, environmental control and industrial automation.

Nokia will implement IMPACT, its IoT device management platform, and predicts that IoT's worth will be 36 times more than the potential value of today's internet by 2020.
