The newly launched laboratory will provide IoT related knowledge and technical support to SMEs in Korea which are looking forward to exploring global markets.

Yun Kyoung-Lim, Head, Future Convergence Business Office, KT, commented that with the help of Nokia Networks, it will leverage upon the convergence of Telecommunications and IT to accelerate its transformation into a world-class ICT powerhouse. He further added that this laboratory will help the company becoming a top-notched player in the IoT industry of Korea.

IoT is the next best thing in the world. There is a need of increased participation from domestic companies to push the country towards becoming an advanced economy; therefore, KT focuses on improving the participation rate by SMEs in the future.

As a part of this collaboration, both the companies will also conduct the first ever LTE-Machine-to-Machine field trial in the October quarter.
