Nokia is expanding its private 5G network capabilities further into industrial applications with a new device portfolio supporting extended connectivity options. Starting off with the addition of a new wearable device and digital twinning gives mining, manufacturing and public safety industries the ability to connect people and machines while leveraging edge data for operational safety and efficiency.
Savox, a Nokia partner, introduced a hand-held remote microphone, headset with noise-cancellation, and helmet-compatible headset for people working in a harsh industrial environment, especially mining. The protective equipment is designed and manufactured to meet regulatory requirements, but go further by enabling various manufacturing and mining industries to connect people to the edge network and build a secure working environment.
“We have a long history of collaborating with professionals who work in harsh and demanding locations; therefore, we have a real understanding of their needs,” said Valtteri Seraste, strategic sales, Savox Communications. “We are laser-focused on delivering innovative end-user dedicated solutions. With Nokia, we can now offer our wearable devices to even more users, help improve their safety and enhance team communication with durable and robust communications solutions.”
Adding to a long list of wearable cameras for industrial settings, Nokia has launched a new Industrial 5G video camera supporting low light performance with improved image quality. The capability of the Industrial 5G video camera to wirelessly connect to the private wireless 5G network will enable customers to take advantage of real-time video analysis. This hardware platform can be used for AI applications, like face recognition, object detection, defect detection, road sign detection, and drive records that require faster data processing. These applications can efficiently be deployed on edge devices like Nokia Industrial 5G video camera to connect with your private 5G network, reducing the signal interference.
The expansion of its private wireless capability also comes with the all-new Nokia Network Digital Twin that enables enterprises to better view network performance from the Nokia Industrial devices deployed on the edge network. The Nokia Network Digital Twin also recommends actions for certain situations such as underperforming wireless networks. This technology will be effective for new industrial use cases that would employ wireless 5G networks like ultra-reliable low latency communication (URLLC).
“Nokia is committed to continually enhancing our private wireless offering and expanding our ecosystem through partner offerings to meet the many diverse and complex challenges that our customers face. We are pleased to introduce our new digital twin capabilities for private wireless and work with Savox to deliver solutions that meet the needs across industries,” said Shkumbin Hamiti, head of Devices and Spectrum, Enterprise Solutions, Nokia Cloud and Network Services.
