Nokia wins software deal from Elisa

Nokia has won an order from Finnish telecom operator Elisa for a system that will allow the operator to remotely control software in mobile phones, a Reuters report said.

The report said the system would enable the operator to remotely install, update and remove software from the mobile devices, cutting the need for costly and time-consuming manual work.

"This is Nokia's first deal with focus on device management for corporate customers," Nokia said in a statement, without disclosing financial details, according to the report.
