Nokia paves way for Industry 4.0 with more than 120 private wireless network customers

With extended 5G-ready portfolio, expanded ecosystem and global, industry-wide customer adoption, Nokia reinforces private wireless/private LTE/4.9G market leadership

Private wireless networking market opportunity estimated to be worth over US$16 billion by 2025, according to ABI Research

19 November 2019

Espoo, Finland - Nokia today announced that it has deployed private wireless networks for more than 120 customers across multiple industries and geographies, helping its enterprise customers take advantage of Industry 4.0 innovation.

Unleashing the potential of Industry 4.0 technologies such as cloud, IoT, AI and machine learning, Nokia's private LTE/4.9G and 5G wireless networking solutions have established a global marketplace footprint across energy, transportation, public sector, manufacturing and logistics.

Kathrin Buvac, President of Nokia Enterprise said: Enterprise customers who invest in Industry 4.0 today will gain a clear competitive advantage over those who choose to wait. With spectrum and new technologies that have become available, customers can deploy industrial-grade wireless connectivity to capture the transformational benefits of digitalization and industrial automation.

Building on this marketplace success, Nokia today also announced an expansion of its leading portfolio of industrial-grade private networking solutions. In addition, expanding the reach of its solutions portfolio across multiple geographies and industries, Nokia continues to cultivate an ecosystem of world-class partners integrating LTE/4.9G into their Industry 4.0 solutions to enable their customers' digital transformation.

Buvac added: ABI Research has quantified the private wireless networking market opportunity at US$ 16.3 billion by 2025. Accordingly, we have increased our investments in R&D and human capital to create the most complete private wireless solutions portfolio in the market. Our deep industry expertise is reflected in the breadth of our customers, including more than 120 asset-heavy leaders in the sectors of mining, manufacturing, ports, utilities and airports.

Nokia is arguably the first telecom infrastructure vendor that has invested significant R&D and effort in addressing enterprise verticals, and this announcement illustrates that Nokia is listening to end users, said Dimitris Mavrakis, Research Director at ABI Research. Nokia's new products, services and ecosystem partnerships remove technology and ecosystem complexity for enterprises currently looking at implementing private cellular networks. The time is right for Industry 4.0, since many industrial applications and digitalization efforts can benefit today from LTE/4G; in addition, it is a vital step to promote the adoption of cellular technology at enterprise verticals and lay the foundation for future advanced 5G use cases.

Right now, there is tremendous appetite and momentum for private wireless networking as we see a coming together' of key enablers that differentiate our proposition, said Karl Bream, Head of Strategy for Nokia's Enterprise business. LTE/4.9G has proven its ability to provide reliable, secure, high-capacity connectivity. Spectrum availability is opening up with the availability of shared and unlicensed networking options, such as CBRS and MulteFire. Most importantly, Nokia is bringing to market an unparalleled combination of technology, services and partnerships to help customers deploy turnkey solutions that enable the next steps in their digital transformation.

Nokia's extensive work with over 120 customers reaches across the globe and addresses the immediate needs of multiple industrial segments including:

24 customers in transportation including Port of Kokkola, Port of Oulu and Vienna Airport

35 customers in Energy including Minera Las Bambas S.A

32 customers in public sector and smart cities including Sendai City and Nordic Telecom/Czech Republic

11 customers in manufacturing and logistics including China Unicom/BMW and Ukkoverkot/Konecranes

18+ customers across other industries

Nokia's private 4.9G/LTE and 5G wireless networking portfolio offers ultra-reliable and secure broadband wireless connectivity that delivers near spotless coverage across industrial sites. The industrial-grade solutions also seamlessly expand the enterprises business footprint to support new applications as they embrace the move to Industry 4.0.

The company has also significantly expanded its private wireless ecosystem to include service providers and partners across cloud, systems integration, strategic consulting and industry specialists. All have a key role to play in the widescale adoption of private wireless across industries. Nokia's extensive list of ecosystem partners includes:
