Capturing value beyond connectivity
Boost productivity in ports
Overcoming connectivity interference issues in your port and digitalizing your terminal operations is easy with our Nokia DAC solution that provides you with a secure private wireless network, an industrial automation platform, applications and ruggedized user equipment.[showmore]
You can count on high performance in harsh conditions and high capacity for bandwidth hungry apps. Customers are leveraging Nokia Industrial devices for a variety of use cases such as: retrofitting our dongles to existing vehicle-mounted computers; connecting cranes and straddle carriers to the private wireless network via our ruggedized routers that enable efficient traffic for PROFINET communication and other protocols including EtherCAT and Modbus. Likewise, they are equipping mobile workers with Nokia Industrial workpads for remote reefer (cold chain) monitoring and utilizing our handhelds for push-to-talk use cases.
Safer, more efficient mining
In a challenging environment like a mine you must be able to reach your workforce at any point in time to keep them safe. Your optimal solution consists of rugged Nokia Industrial handhelds or workpads with dedicated push-to-X buttons and a reliable group communication application, like our Nokia DAC team comms that comes pre-integrated with your private wireless network.[showmore]
Business critical apps run on our ruggedized workpads, providing a bigger screen for viewing maps, inputting information or reading instructions. Autonomous vehicles securely connect over Nokia Industrial routers to the private 5G network, while their operators remotely monitor the stream from cameras that are connected via dongles to the private network. Likewise, benefit from 360° connected coverage to follow movement, haptic feedback and other sensory data from deep within the mine.
Track your goods and ensure quality
Retrofit your trucks with barcode scanners connected over Nokia Industrial routers to ensure that all items arriving and leaving your warehouse are tracked. Where manual inventory is needed, our easy to use ruggedized handheld devices offer the same functionality via a dedicated button. With the same device you can easily set up a group call or share information via push-to-video.[showmore]
Cameras connected over Nokia Industrial dongles can be randomly repositioned with ease to allow for ultimate flexibility in monitoring and surveillance. Connected sensors report temperature, moisture and other parameters where and when the information is needed to ensure the quality of goods in storage.
Accelerate smart manufacturing
Wirelessly connected production modules enable ultra-flexible layouts of the shop floor so you can meet production capabilities for a ‘lot size of one’. Industrial computers like PLCs, steering robots, AGVs and assembly lines can be reliably connected to the private wireless network over Nokia Industrial routers.[showmore]
Malfunctioning connected machines send alerts to the operations center, while maintenance personnel benefit from push-to-video in our handhelds or workpads when consulting back office experts. Quality control cameras connected over Nokia Industrial dongles stream HD visual data for instant analytics and reaction in case of defects.
Smarter grid and safer society
Many industry verticals are turning to private wireless for reliable coverage and effective in-building penetration. Energy utilities, for example, are adopting the 450-470 MHz spectrum (bands 31, 72) and emerging 410-430 MHz spectrum (as B87, B88) to provide cost-effective wireless network coverage of wide areas for mission critical broadband. [showmore]
These lower frequencies can support a variety of Industry 4.0 use case applications like IoT, and environmental sensors to enable public safety, transport and security capabilities.
Our portfolio of ruggedized Nokia Industrial devices already supports these bands and feature high IP protection, shock and electromagnetic resistance, pre-integrated apps like push-to-talk and push-to-video and handy accessories. Likewise, our mobile devices can support several positioning, navigation and timing methods like network-based, GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, and Galileo.
Smart cities solving the digital divide
To address the need for availability of IT devices, many governments, school districts and non-profit organizations are working to provide laptops, tablets and hotspots to enable underprivileged students and disconnected communities. This is a necessary first step in addressing the digital divide and providing reliable access to online learning. [showmore]
Nokia’s end-to-end private wireless solution provides the connectivity and devices like Nokia Industrial hotspots needed to ensure smart city objectives can be met easily and cost effectively. In the US for example, private networks on the CBRS band allow for deployment at a fraction of the cost and support multiple features such as bandwidth control, content filtering, and safety issues and video monitoring on and off campus.
Seamless integration with Nokia DAC device management
Your Nokia Digital Automation Cloud platform comes with integrated device management to support seamless onboarding and plug and play operation of whatever Nokia Industrial user equipment you choose. And our management tool is scalable to thousands of devices across the range of available form factors.
Easy to manage
NDAC manager allows you to:
- Manage and monitor the performance of your devices, via single pane of glass
- Start with any number of devices and scale according to needs
- Easily deploy user equipment, which connect automatically to your network
- Change device parameters when or if your use case changes
- Implement mass actions, advanced filtering and device grouping
- Customize operations based on the business requirements, such as geo-fencing
- Equip your Nokia industrial devices with pre-integrated applications like Nokia team comms.
