The company has integrated the Nokia 5G solution into its global, real-time MYNXG IoT Platform, which support industrial solutions and provides direct integration into business systems and processes.

Industrial solutions include condition monitoring for shop floor equipment, product lifecycle and process automation, supply chain asset management and access control to sites, processes and data.

As the deployment progresses, the companies will identify potential opportunities for joint solution development.

Robust solution

Bernd Möller, CEO of MYNXG, said, "Our goal is to be able to offer our customers robust, and certified end-to-end secure industrial IoT solutions, so that they can drive the automation and digitalization of their processes.

"By integrating Nokia's 5G technology into our overall industrial IoT technology platform, we have not only found an ideal solution for testing IoT systems, but also the basis for further marketplace development."

Campus coverage

The private 5G campus solution is based on Nokia Digital Automation Cloud (DAC). Scalable according to needs, Nokia DAC is an industrial-grade digital automation platform that provides a reliable, secure, high-performance private wireless network.  Combining edge computing capability and low latency to support data-intensive applications, DAC users can securely collect, process and host all generated proprietary data on site.
 
Thomas Hainzel, Head of EMEA Manufacturing & Logistics, Nokia Enterprise, said: "For industrial companies to realize their Industry 4.0 ambitions, it is crucial that they can test IoT solutions and applications in real-life conditions. This requires not only a proven, resilient IoT platform, but also a powerful and secure high bandwidth network. In this case, Nokia provides MYNXG and its ecosystem with the ideal platform for its testing and development work.”
