A comprehensive solution

Nokia DAC comes with edge computing hardware, radio access points, add-on applications and user equipment.  It also comes with spectrum options – unlicensed (MulteFire and Nokia DAC unlicensed), shared (CBRS) or licensed spectrum – giving you secure, pervasive indoor and outdoor connectivity. 

A simple, powerful management portal

The platform includes a web-based portal that makes it easy to manage all your sites, anywhere in the world. You can use the portal to deploy applications and push software updates to all or individual locations.

Choose Nokia or third-party applications and IoT stacks from our Nokia DAC catalog with click and deploy installation. Protocols such as Profinet and Modbus can be seamlessly taken into use with your new digitalized connectivity thanks to DAC industrial connectors.

Proven wireless technology and new 5G standalone

Based on proven 4G/LTE and new 5G technology, Nokia DAC is easy to deploy. If you select the 4G version with its rich ecosystem of compliant devices you can later upgrade to 5G via a simple software update and replacement of access points. It also gives you a head start on 5G by defining priorities for different sources of data through network slicing.

By deploying 5G SA, you will benefit from increased capacity and speed, as well as lower latency and energy costs. The two generations are combined in Nokia DAC 5G non-standalone (NSA) and offers you an alternative route to 5G. Either way, we've got you covered.
