Nokia Corporation, a global leader in 5G, networks, and phones, has reportedly announced that Movistar Chile has deployed Nokia’s IMPACT CDP Entitlement Server software. The move will offer more enhanced services for selected smartwatches and to efficiently manage those services. Movistar Chile is Telefónica’s affiliate in Chile.

The move makes Movistar Chile be the first operator to deliver innovative smart cellular-enabled mobile services without having to connect to a smartphone.

IMPACT, also known as Intelligent Management Platform for All Connected Things, is one of the leading device management solutions globally based on market share. The platform provides automatic zero-touch activation and tracks the entire life cycle, allowing remote management of networks and IoT (Internet of Things) devices.

The need for such type of remote network management capability offered by IMPACT CDP has significantly increased due to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic.

Movistar Chile is the recent firm to benefit from IMPACT CDP Entitlement Server, with impetus in several Latin American markets, including several Telefónica affiliates in Europe and the region, along with numerous companies in the Asia Pacific, North America, and Europe.
