Factory automation case

Nokia, Arçelik and Türk Telekom showcase how private wireless connectivity and innovative digital technologies are improving worker safety, productivity and efficiency.

Solution components

Your Nokia DAC comes with edge computing hardware (MX Industrial Edge), our leading AirScale and Flexi Zone radio platforms, add-on industrial applications and a selection of ruggedized devices. It also comes with spectrum - your choice of licensed, shared (CBRS) or unlicensed (MulteFire) spectrum, giving you secure, pervasive indoor and outdoor connectivity.

If you select the 4.9G version with its rich ecosystem of compliant devices, you can later upgrade to 5G via a simple software update and replacement of access points. It also gives you a head start on 5G by defining priorities for different sources of data through network slicing. By deploying 5G SA, you will benefit from increased capacity and speed, lower latency, and energy costs.  The two generations are combined in Nokia DAC 5G non-standalone (NSA) and offers you an alternative route to 5G. Whatever use case you have in scope, we've got you covered.
