Industrial IoT

The Internet of Things (IoT) interconnects "things" and autonomously exchanges data between them. "Things" may be machines, parts of machines, smart meters, cameras, sensors or even everyday objects such as hand-held tools or wearables. This capability will bring tremendous possibilities to any kind of enterprise and business environment. To support IoT, advanced next generation communication is needed. Industrial, on the other hand, can be seen as a wider domain than just the traditional manufacturing or production industry. It can really be anything in our everyday life.

We have some themes below for possible technology domains where we as Nokia see opportunities. These are of course not the only possible areas which interest us but they give you an idea about how we look at this new world of Industrial IoT. We are particularly interested if your proposal involves Artificial Intelligence (AI) and automation components. This approach would without a doubt make you stand out in the eyes of our jury.   We encourage you to look beyond the obvious as these are not the only possible areas which interest us, but they give you an idea about how we approach this new world of Industrial IoT.  


Next generation private networks for industrial Internet

We are looking for something which could solve simple or complex business challenges within any company, big or small, i.e. potential customers of Nokia. This should be something which could help enterprises or industrial companies take the next step in their digital automation journey: applications, solutions or products which would utilize the most advanced communication network.


Digital manufacturing and utilities

Humans and machines come together, Industry 4.0 powered by advanced industrial wireless communication networks will create new opportunities even for traditional manufacturing companies. These networks can help to improve flexibility and effectivity in production and supply chain/logistics, cut costs and create a safer working environment! We can also securely and seamlessly interconnect infrastructure spanning data centers, offices and branches trough different geographical locations.

Digital site

Nokia is committed to making sites such as airports, land ports and sea ports, mines, oil rigs, warehouses, campuses, and malls adopt and implement smart IoT and other digital technologies to be more customer centric, user friendly and increase value added services efficiently.

Digital mobility and transportation

Nokia is shaping the future of mobility and transportation including cars, drones, trains, and ships by sharing their connectivity services through the Internet of Things – to elevate, differentiate and simplify the experience. IoT will bring humans, vehicles, devices and sensors together to monitor traffic flow, personalize driver settings and entertainment, configure in-vehicle communications, remotely monitor fuel levels, vehicle diagnostics and predictive maintenance to make the journey safer and more enjoyable.

Digital cities

Nokia is helping to leverage the digitalization of cities through centralized, participative and collaborative interactions between city actors: government, city service providers, industry, and citizens. This action enables the deployment of disruptive information, mobility and safety services in cities.

Digital life

With the increasing adoption of new digital appliances and services, the way we live, communicate and interact is changing fundamentally. We can enable immersive experiences with a breadth of connectivity options within our homes, hobbies and our work places. All these home accessories and equipment can be connected and managed by you. There is lots of potential to make your daily routines much more enjoyable through modern mobile networks and possible new applications. There is a great opportunity to improve the consumer and customer experience through these future applications with the help of artificial intelligence and machine learning.

Automation & augmented intelligence

The fundamental challenge of today is the conversation of data into action and knowledge. Using analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence we are creating new tools that augment human, machine and network intelligence. These tool will enable the ultimate goal of artificial intelligence to automate the mundane and to augment the expert – simplifying, optimizing and enhancing all the aspects of our life.
