The largest single order in HMD Global history: Deutsche Bahn orders …

HMD Global Oy


Deutsche Bahn is retooling its long-distance transportation division with mobile devices from HMD Global and sets an example in the direction of sustainability: Nokia phones and tablets sold to Deutsche Bahn will receive 4 years of security updates to ensure the longest cycle life. In addition, HMD Global will plant more than 100,000 trees in partnership with Ecolog as part of its “Let’s Plant Together” initiative.

HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, has been awarded a contract to update mobile devices for employees of DB Fernverkehr AG (DB) in a neutral bid by the manufacturer. In the first phase, HMD Global will deliver 12,000 Nokia X20 smartphones and 15,000 Nokia T20 tablets to the DB. Nokia phones and tablets are verified by Google “Android Enterprise Recommended” (AER) and are therefore recommended for professional use in businesses. In order to extend the service life of mobile devices, HMD Global provides monthly security updates and three software upgrades for four years.

One year additional security support

HMD Global was able to successfully prove itself against the competition in the DB tender. The critical factor was meeting the specific requirements of business, users and information technology. Contrary to what is usual in the industry, HMD Global offers hardware security support for not only 36 months, but up to 48 months.

DB and HMD Global have been together for about two years. So far, the partnership is mostly related to the exchange of individual devices. The exchange of “fleet of devices” marks a new milestone in the collaboration. With the Nokia T20, the Mobility Group has also chosen a new market model: “It’s a huge vote of confidence that DB employees can use our latest devices. The delivery of five-figure worth of devices to the Deutsche Bahn is something special.” , says Sebastian Ulrich, Director of Global Business Enterprise at HMD Global.

Operating emissions compensation for 100,000 devices per year

When large projects like this one are put up for tender, aspects of sustainability are increasingly on the list of requirements. HMD Global also had an answer for this.

So many mobile devices consume a lot of power. This in turn causes emissions. To counter this, 100,000 trees will be planted as part of the project. On average, a tree attaches 10 kilograms of carbon dioxide per year, and the board emits about 10 kilograms of carbon dioxide emissions during its use. Thus, with 100,000 trees per year, the operational emissions of 100,000 mobile devices can be offset.

Designed in Europe and secure communications

The Nokia T20 is a tablet with a 10.36-inch 2K display, an 8200 mAh battery for seven hours of conference calling or 15 hours of online playback, and a Unisoc T610 processor (4 GB RAM / 64 GB ROM) for Sufficient computing power.Memory can be expanded up to 512 GB using a microSD card. The Nokia X20 smartphone is equipped with a 64MP quad camera with ZEISS optics, a 32MP front camera, a Full HD+ display and a Qualcomm® Snapdragon (TM) 480 5G mobile system (6GB RAM/128GB ROM) for outstanding performance and global 5G delivers Nokia X20 up to two days of battery life.
