Customers can utilise the Nokia Digital Automation Cloud (DAC), a compact, plug-and-play system with automation enablers which operates on 4.9G/LTE and 5G private wireless networking standards. DAC allows for on-site data management and processing to support real-time applications for remote operations, predictive maintenance and smart manufacturing.

The services offer low latency, strong security and dependable QoS management, and offer flexibility for customers including full control of multi-local networks and easy scalability to suit all operation sizes, with further customisation available through Nokia’s Modular Private Wireless (MPW) solution.

Nokia has conducted multiple in-situ trials of the technology in cooperation with customers and mobile operators since the first quarter of 2020. In addition, the company was awarded a contract in December 2019 for the implementation of 5G ATO systems for the Hamburg S-Bahn.

Nokia 5G SA will also feature Ultra-Reliable Low-Latency Communication (URLLC), Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) in future 5G 3GPP releases (R16-18), allowing for low latency and ultra-high reliability on mission-critical applications such as ATO and intelligent power management.
