Nokia announced global availability of its new 5G industrial-grade standalone (SA) private wireless networking solutions for enterprise customers.
“With the introduction of 5G SA, we set a new standard for our enterprise customers with a world-class lineup of private wireless solutions to meet their digitalization needs, no matter their entry point or connectivity requirements,” said Nokia Enterprise President Raghav Sahgal.
“We’re paving the way to accelerate digitalization in the most demanding of use cases such as automotive manufacturing, where cloud, robotics and autonomous machine operations create mission-critical demands for reliable low latency and high data rate.”
The company has more than 180 private wireless enterprise customers globally, of which over 30 are for 5G networks. Recent deployments include Deutsche Bahn, Lufthansa Technik and Toyota Production Engineering.
Sahgal added: “We recognize that 4.9G/LTE, which handles more than 85 percent of industrial applications, will continue to be the foremost private wireless solution for some time. With this announcement we bring the best of both worlds.”
Enterprise customers can deploy Nokia Digital Automation Cloud – a compact, plug-and-play system – or they can further customize their network with Nokia Modular Private Wireless.
Nokia also announced a new engagement with Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology, which will deploy a Nokia 5G SA private wireless network at its test mine in Tampere, Finland. Sandvik is among the top ten largest public companies in Sweden.
Patrick Murphy, President, Rock Drills and Technologies, Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology said: “The introduction of 5G opens the door to new opportunities in robotics, remote and autonomous operations, full-fleet automation, analytics and enhanced safety. As such, it comprises a breakthrough in the digital transformation of mining.”
