Can Private Networks Pave the Way for Powerful Industry 4.0 Automation?


What is private wireless, how does it works, and how does it differ from other solutions? Is it ready to pave the way for an even more expansive 5G rollout?

You’ve come to the right place for answers.

On this episode of Nokia Today, host Tyler Kern was joined by Shawn Sparling, Head of Canada Enterprise Sales at Nokia, to explore all things private wireless, from what it is at a basic level and what it’s for all the way to how it can enable greater automation throughout facilities its long-term growth potential.

“When we look at private wireless, it’s essentially having a reliable, secure, private 4G or 5G network that allows an enterprise to control the system, deliver the performance they want to, and keep their data controlled within their network with the security they want and the quality of service they want,” Sparling said. “It gives the enterprise a lot of flexibility to add any kind of device that they want to.”

These networks are useful across many industries, including early adopters in mining and rail systems to today’s manufacturing, utilities and education organizations and beyond.

“There really isn’t an industry where we haven’t seen it,” Sparling said.

Private networks can help elevate organizations’ digital transformations by providing support for autonomous vehicles, robotics, and a wide ecosystem of solutions industries are using to meet the future head on.
