22 April 2024
Espoo, Finland – Nokia today announced new pre-tested and pre-integrated segment solutions to guide manufacturing and logistics companies on how to approach their digital transformation to achieve strategic goals, use case needs and return of investment (ROI). Nokia’s industrial segment solutions help customers select the most suitable network design based on their specific use case and performance requirements.

Findings from the Industry 4.0 maturity index for industrial campuses showed that there are many barriers to industry digital transformation, including lack of alignment between IT and OT teams, lack of technology expertise and concerns about data. Use cases include implementation of automated guided vehicles (AGVs), process automation, predictive maintenance, digitalizing pencil and paper operations, and situational awareness, as well as critical communications to improve hazard detection, lower risk and create overall safer working conditions.

As part of their digital transformation, manufacturing and logistics companies will need to understand how to connect legacy assets to cut through data silos, how to use operational data to inform processes and optimize assets and how to manage their transformation while maintaining critical operations.

Nokia’s already available segment solutions include digitalization of ports, open pit and underground mining, utilities, and airports. These segment solutions leverage industry best practices and are backed by Nokia one platform for industrial digitalization, which is comprised of Nokia Digital Automation Cloud (DAC) and Nokia Modular Private Wireless (MPW) 4.9G/LTE and 5G private wireless connectivity solutions, ruggedized Industrial devices, MX Industrial Edge (MXIE) computing, an array of ecosystem neutral industrial applications, and systems integration services.

The segment solution concept leverages Nokia’s extensive expertise developed through more than 30 years of delivering critical communications solutions and systems integration for enterprise digital transformations. Nokia has deployed private wireless to more than 730 customers while collaborating with a portfolio of industrial OEM ecosystem partners and application providers.

Matt Hoover, Global Product Manager, Wireless and IIoT at Rockwell, said: “Embarking on the digitalization journey can be a daunting prospect. You need to understand your wireless application requirements and get started with initial projects so you can quantify the benefits. Gaining management approval is the next step and working with a proven vendor like Nokia is critical. Creating a roadmap that clearly shows how vital operations are maintained during the transformation, as well as how to achieve benefit or ROI is key. Using a pre-tested and pre-integrated solution from Nokia can reduce the risk of implementation and guide companies every step of the way.”

Ryan Martin, Senior Research Director at ABI Research, said: “Pre-tested and pre-integrated solutions like those of Nokia remove implementation risks and accelerate time-to-value. They provide a route map that shows clearly how vital operations are maintained during the transformation, as well as how to achieve a positive ROI, which drives alignment and allows companies to efficiently scale.”

Stephan Litjens, Vice President of Enterprise Solutions at Nokia, said: “With these new segment solutions we answer the difficult questions for manufacturing and logistics companies, ensuring they ‘keep the lights on’ as they manage their transformation. We have already demonstrated how quickly customers can reap the benefits from Industry 4.0 use cases using our pre-tested Nokia one platform for industry digitalization and we want to use these segment solutions to help more companies achieve their goals.”
