Nokia in pact with OIV to deliver 5G private wireless network

Nokia has joined hands with OIV, a provider of communications infrastructure in Croatia, to deliver a 5G private wireless network solution for AD Plastik’s automotive component manufacturing facility in Croatia.
Nokia AirScaleNokia said its Digital Automation Cloud (DAC) application platform will enable 5G wireless connectivity for equipment, machinery, and a set of applications at AD Plastik’s manufacturing campus in Zagreb, Croatia. It will replace and overcome the limitations of the existing Wi-Fi infrastructure to allow AD Plastik to implement new Industry 4.0 use-cases and enhance operational efficiency.

The 5G private wireless network solution offers capabilities beyond connectivity, such as local edge computing, video services and a catalog of applications. The solution is comprising network equipment, a cloud-based operation monitoring system and industrial connectors that ease standard and industry-specific protocol connectivity.

“By implementing the Nokia DAC, AD Plastik will benefit from the highest reliability and lowest latency connectivity for all their operations, allowing the company to accelerate its digitalisation and industry 4.0 transformation for efficiency and flexibility,” Michael Siegel, Director Nokia Enterprise South-East Europe, said.
