Espoo, Finland – Nokia today announced that it has launched the first critical, cloud-native industrial edge solution to enable enterprises to accelerate their * Operational Technology (OT) digitization initiatives and move towards Industry 4.0 . The new Nokia MX Industrial Edge is a scalable application and compute solution designed to meet the mission–critical digital transformation needs of active–intensive industries such as manufacturing, energy and transportation. This uniquely combines compute, storage, wired / wireless networking, one-click industrial applications, and automated management on a unified, on-premises OT digital transformation platform.
Industry 4.0 requires widespread digitization and connectivity of equipment, machines and other assets in industrial environments. Due to the volume and speed of the data being generated, and the need for real-time automation, more and more data must be processed at the edge, close to where it is generated. By 2025, Gartner predicts that 75% of industrial data will be processed at the edge.
By adopting Nokia MX Industrial Edge, enterprises will benefit from an on-premises cloud architecture that unifies edge requirements in a package as a service that is easy to use and deploy anywhere. It removes the complexity, knowledge, and economic barriers typically associated with the deployment, integration, and lifecycle management of high-performance computing applications and mission-critical networks.
The extreme scalability of the platform allows multi-facility companies, such as logistics companies, to deploy the same technology to all of their sites, large or small, making the benefits of “expand once.” , deploy everywhere ”a reality. The Nokia MX Industrial Edge is powered by Nokia Digital Automation Cloud (Nokia DAC), giving the business a single user experience to manage everything from applications to private wireless networks.
Stéphane Litjens, To manage business solutions at Nokia, said:“Industry 4.0 is transforming asset-intensive industries by integrating and digitizing all processes and systems along the industrial value chain. This will lead to a data explosion – and taking the right actions based on this near real-time data will be essential. The success of digital transformation initiatives. Ensuring performance, as well as aspects such as keeping data local and secure while being resilient against internet connectivity failures, are not possible with a centralized cloud, making the on-premises edge the architecture of choice for this new generation of OT Applications. The Nokia MX Industrial Edge is designed from the ground up to deliver the guaranteed performance, security and reliability required by OT scanning use cases.
Caroline Chappell, Research Director, To analyse Mason , said: “Organizations are increasingly focusing their digital transformation efforts on applying software and cloud capabilities to operational technologies (OT) to leverage the benefits of agility and cost efficiency in industrial environments. asset-intensive. Businesses need on-premises edge clouds, such as the Nokia MX Industrial Edge, to provide secure, resilient, and high-performance runtime environments for mission-critical OT applications. Businesses will seek out an edge cloud solution partner who can tap into a broad ecosystem of cloud stack and industrial application vendors, understand their rigorous business needs, data sovereignty requirements, and who can bring in-depth knowledge of the business. network to an increasingly complex environment, connected industrial landscape. “
The Nokia Edge solution is also available for businesses in combination with Nokia Digital Automation Cloud applications, such as high precision indoor positioning, private plug and play wireless, or with Nokia’s alternative private wireless solution, Nokia Modular Private. Wireless (MPW). Flexible consumption-based pricing models provide pay-as-you-grow subscription flexibility while minimizing upfront investments.
Nokia MX Industrial Edge is available in a variety of configurations to support small, medium and large scale industrial deployments. Based on the Nokia AirFrame Open Edge server, taking advantage of the latest innovations and CPU from Intel for–processing capacity, the Nokia Edge solution is designed for compute intensive tasks and advanced AI / Machine Learning (ML) workloads optionally supported through GPU support ( GPU). Additionally, high-performance network interface cards (NICs) and packet processing systems are evolving to support very large autonomous 5G private wireless (SA) traffic flows. It offers extreme resiliency and reliability through an end-to-end high availability (HA) architecture, supports geographic redundancy (GR) for business continuity and guaranteed performance is ensured through built-in orchestration features for service performance management.
Caroline Chan, Vice President, Network Platforms Group and Managing Director, Network Business Incubation Division, Intel “Nokia and Intel have a long-standing partnership to deliver innovative solutions from the heart to the edge of the smart grid, which Nokia is expanding to accelerate the adoption of Industry 4.0. The combination of Intel’s innovations and processors, Nokia’s MX Industrial Edge platform, and 5G technology will provide business customers with the ability to connect, deploy and manage their environments. Across different verticals, businesses will benefit from scalable performance and reliable high-speed, low-latency communications. “
Corporate customers can accelerate their OT digitization initiatives with the one-click deployment of industrial applications on the MX Industrial Edge. The catalog contains Nokia applications for a variety of common scanning use cases and is complemented by applications from independent software vendors (ISVs) that undergo an integration process testing reliability, performance and security. In addition, Nokia’s ecosystem-neutral approach also enables industrial customers to take advantage of edge cloud-enabled applications present in hyperscale clouds, as well as in industrial partner clouds.
Finally, the MX Industrial Edge also simplifies the complexity of southward IIoT system integration with its industrial connectors providing translation of industrial data protocols and with the Nokia Integrated Operations Center which provides a single view of all systems and helps create industrial automation workflows.
Litjens added: “All industrial and corporate campuses, such as factories, logistics hubs, ports, etc. are multi-solution and multi-partner environments. By adopting an ecosystem-neutral approach and integration plugins, our customers benefit from unmatched flexibility and benefit from the widest range of applications and use cases to adopt innovations. and advance their digital transformation.
* Operational Technology (OT) provides the technology to monitor and control physical processes, systems, devices and infrastructure in a production environment, that is, it provides the means to “control the physical with digital ”.
