Nokia Unveils Commercial 5G Standalone Private Wireless

By Ken Briodagh

According to a recent announcement, Nokia now offers global commercial 5G SA industrial-grade private wireless networking solutions.

This is particularly interesting because private 5G wireless might be a viable use case for enterprises that have security concerns about open signal and public internet, especially at 5G speeds. With the introduction of 5G SA, Nokia said it will give its customers the most comprehensive end-to-end portfolio of high-performance 4.9G/LTE and 5G private wireless networking solutions in the marketplace.

“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 Raghav Sahgal, President, Nokia Enterprise. “Private wireless connectivity is central to our customers realizing their long-term digital transformation goals. By delivering 5G SA, 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.”

Nokia has more than 180 private wireless enterprise customers worldwide of which more than 30 engagements are 5G. Nokia has recently announced 5G private wireless deployments that include Deutsche Bahn, Lufthansa Technik and Toyota Production Engineering. Nokia also announced that Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology will deploy a Nokia 5G SA private wireless network at its test mine in Tampere, Finland.

With Nokia’s new 5G SA solutions, enterprise customers reportedly have the choice of deploying Nokia Digital Automation Cloud, or they can further customize their network according to needs with Nokia Modular Private Wireless.

“By deploying a Nokia 5G SA private wireless network with Nokia Digital Automation Cloud, we can showcase an entirely new range of game-changing capabilities here in our Tampere test mine,” said Patrick Murphy, President, Rock Drills and Technologies, Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology. “As we work with our customers to help them leverage technology to digitalize their operations, 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.
