Nokia acquired SpaceTime Insight to expand its internet of things (IoT) portfolio and IoT analytics capabilities and accelerate the development of new IoT applications for key vertical markets.

Based in San Mateo, California, with offices in the U.S., Canada, U.K., India and Japan, SpaceTime Insight provides machine learning-powered analytics and IoT applications for large transportation, energy and utilities organizations, including Entergy, FedEx, NextEra Energy, Singapore Power and Union Pacific Railroad.

The company’s machine-learning models and other analytics, designed specifically for asset-intensive industries, predict asset health with a high degree of accuracy and optimize related operations. As a result, SpaceTime Insight's applications help customers reduce cost and risk, increase operational efficiencies and reduce service outages.

The acquisition supports Nokia's software strategy by bringing SpaceTime Insight's sales expertise and proven track record in IoT application development, machine learning and data science to the Nokia software IoT product unit. It will strengthen Nokia's IoT software portfolio and analytics capabilities, and accelerate the development of Nokia's IoT offerings to deliver high-value applications and services to new and existing customers.

The addition of SpaceTime Insight will also broaden the company's ability to deliver new applications for key vertical markets, including energy, logistics, transportation and utilities.

"We've partnered with SpaceTime to help us be more responsive, more efficient and ultimately able to deliver more value to our customers,” said Paul Lau, chief grid strategy and operations officer at Sacramento Municipal Utility District. “Combining their innovative solutions with Nokia's world-class portfolio will provide customers with powerful new tools to better manage assets, maximize efficiencies and deliver new capabilities."
