According to a spokesperson for the company, the scheme will see: “Existing private wireless partners [providing] Nokia Drone Networks benefits to industries.

“Through this collaboration, enterprises and service providers will be able to rapidly realise the capabilities of drones in a way that meets the needs of their business, as well as benefit from new use cases and revenue streams.”

Organisations involved in the scheme can either buy Nokia’s “industrial grade drone-in-a-box solution,” or “lease, share or simply hire drones”. “Bundled service packages” will also be available.

Nokia vice president of enterprise campus edge solutions, Stephan Litjens, said: “We are pleased to leverage our existing private wireless partnerships. This allows us to offer our innovative solution in a way that meets the complex needs of any enterprise or industry.

“Through our work with partners across all regions, we’ll maintain a strong collaboration with spectrum and airspace regulators and the ecosystem, to ensure we balance innovation with safety for customer flights."
