NSN Targets the Energy Sector

Nokia Siemens Networks will pursue a partnership strategy to address opportunities in the energy sector. Areas of interest include the transformation of power grids into intelligent smart grids, and managing user demand and consumption via smart metering.


Nokia Siemens Networks aims to apply its existing charging, mediation, service management and network management solutions, and to work with third parties, to exploit opportunities in the intelligent energy market. The company's business serving the energy sector will form part of its new Business Solutions organization from January 1, 2010.


The first announced partner is ServusNet, which is working with NSN to help wind power operators optimize power generation and delivery. ServusNet is using Nokia Siemens Networks Open Element Management System (EMS) Suite, a software platform for both utility and telecommunications network management across different technologies and vendors.


"When you look at what is required to manage power grids, or to make full use of unpredictable renewable energy sources such as solar and wind, as well as bringing greater transparency and flexibility to billing, the synergies with the core of our existing telecoms business is obvious," said Juhani Hintikka, Head of Operations and Business Software, Nokia Siemens Networks. "While our research and development remains focused on communication service providers, we will look to exploit opportunities where we can create clear value for our customers by entering new growing markets with our current products and services."http://www.nsn.com
