The Industry 4.0 heroes leading the way to digital transformation
Improving industry resilience with digital innovation
From new 5G services to ubiquitous automation, smart networking is unlocking value and making you more productive, adaptable and resilient, ready to safely navigate the next great unknowns. For every mission-critical and business-critical need, there’s a purpose-designed Nokia network.
Whether the technology involves 4G and 5G private wireless, mission-critical IP/MPLS or fiber access networks, you need solutions for your industry. Nokia mission-critical industrial networks are tailored to each industry we serve, and build upon our deep technology expertise that spans both wired and wireless domains.
“5G’s ultra-fast responsiveness makes it easier and safer for AGVs and other machines (such as robots and co-bots) to work with each other and with humans. Sensors on AGVs and 5G-enabled devices ensure they don’t interfere with the actions of those around them and, in case of an emergency, wireless full shutoff is effectively instant. The demonstration of 5G for this critical manufacturing industry case was such a resounding success that both Daimler and Bosch now plan to deploy this technology in their plants.”
What does Industry 4.0 mean for cities and governments?
Industry 4.0 technologies help governments bridge the digital divide. When every citizen is connected, communities are more sustainable, services are more accessible and economies thrive. Society-critical networks are the key to unlocking it all.
Sustainability is key to building back better.
Sustainability is not only an environmental imperative: it’s increasingly a financial one too. Meeting sustainability targets can, not only help companies avoid costly fines from regulators, it also offers big opportunities for growth from new business models, and new deals where customers are seeking out suppliers who also help them meet their sustainability commitments.
Digitalization can provide a path to sustainability. It brings the tools of connectivity, intelligence, data analytics, and automation to our world. Fueled by Industry 4.0 goals of efficiency, productivity and agility, digitalization brings new ways to connect our society and workplaces, it helps companies make the shift toward more sustainable business practices, offers tools to measure impact, and helps to bridge digital divides.
“Communications technology, digitalization, and cloud technologies are central to the transition to a zero-emissions economy.”

Innovation: Accelerating new digital frontiers
The COVID-19 crisis highlighted the need for digitalization across industries. Sectors such as e-commerce and finance that had already invested strongly in digital infrastructure weathered the storm far better than the heavy asset, physical industries that hadn’t. So how can physical industries such as manufacturing, utilities and mining as well government public safety and defence divisions and city planners accelerate digitalization to build more productive and inclusive operations and protect against future unknowns? One answer is adopting technologies tied to 5G, known as 5G+. These combine pervasive 5G networks with solutions such as augmented intelligence, edge cloud, private networks and as-a-service business models to deliver next level agility, sustainability and resilience.
