Nokia has added four new capabilities to its industrial edge platform to accelerate enterprises’ transition to Industry 4.0
April 13, 2023
Nokia has announced the expansion of its industrial edge Industry 4.0 applications ahead of its showcase at Hannover Messe.
The announcement includes the launch of four third-party applications for its MX Industrial Edge (MXIE) platform; Quality Inspector, Crosser, Litmus Edge, and Palo Alto Next-Gen Firewall. The additions are designed to help businesses collect and analyze data from operational technology (OT) assets, improving security and monitoring capabilities to enable this.
“As enterprises move to digitize operations they face some significant challenges,” the company said in a statement. “This includes the collection, integration and analysis of all types of data – including video – from disparate systems, sensors and data silos, and having the certainty that sensitive data is protected once shared with other cloud ecosystems.”
To meet this challenge, Nokia’s MXIE provides 5G low-latency, wireless connectivity to help secure data and improve its usability. Potential use cases include creating early alert systems and anomaly detection, condition monitoring, preventive and predictive maintenance, and digital twins.
Additions to Nokia’s platform include Atos Computer Vision Quality Inspector, an AI solution to identify defects, and improve productivity and asset quality in the manufacturing industry. The company has also added the analytics platform Crosser, which creates real-time data streams for processing by any cloud, IoT platform or digital twin.
Finally, Nokia announced the expansion of its partnership with Kyndryl. The IT infrastructure provider is providing its industrial edge data platform Litmus Edge and security system Palo Alto Next-Gen Firewall to Nokia’s offerings. The platform analyzes and monitors data to improve efficiency and profitability, while the firewall uses AI and ML to monitor and mitigate cyberattacks.
“By combining Kyndryl’s network and edge advisory and integration services with Nokia’s private wireless networks, industrial customers can achieve high-performance wireless connectivity in mission-critical environments,” Nokia said in a statement.
“These new applications unlock operational technology data from their silos while maintaining data security and privacy, which asset-heavy, mission-critical environments require for digital transformation,” said Stephan Litjens, Nokia’s vice president of Enterprise Solutions. “As we continue to expand the Nokia Industrial Application Catalog and work with leading software vendors and cloud providers, our ecosystem-neutral approach for MXIE means enterprises can choose best-of-breed applications to support a range of industrial use cases. This ultimately improves efficiency, worker safety and sustainability in our customers’ operations.”
