Nokia's future factory appears![electronics manufacturing expo NEWS]

01 Jul 2019


Although the Nokia mobile phone business has successively made strategic mistakes in the era of touch screen, it has changed electronics manufacturing expos. But this does not affect the fact that Nokia is still the world's leading provider of network communication, media technology and smart solutions.

The traditional mobile phone giant Nokia, which has been declining, has recovered a lot of confidence in the international 5G communication market in recent years and has achieved good results. From 2013 to 2018, Nokia's 5G technology has a total of 2,133 patent applications worldwide, and telecommunications network equipment suppliers account for about 10.5% of the total number of patent applications. With years of accumulation, acquisitions and investments, Nokia has become a Top3 player in the electronics manufacturing expo and 5G market.

1. Nokia Oulu Smart Factory

Nokia invested heavily in 5G research and development, and naturally will take the lead in experimenting at its own factory. Nokia joined hands with Telia and Intel in March last year to complete the first 5G actual industrial application test. In the small city of Oulu near the Arctic Circle, Nokia is building a “future factory”!

Nokia 5G factory test

  • Tested with ultra-low latency and high bandwidth characteristics of 5G technology and machine learning technology to improve the productivity of industrial electronics manufacturing expo manufacturing;
  • This 5G test network uses Nokia AirScale, AirFrame and MEC edge computing platforms, as well as Intel® 5G mobile test platform and Finwe video analytics application

With 5G, operators and enterprises will be able to connect more assets and gain new electronics manufacturing expo flexibility, as well as more functions such as machine learning, artificial intelligence and extensive application automation to effectively improve operational capabilities.

Nokia will continue to use its MEC edge computing platform and Finwe video analytics applications in the Oulu IntelliSense factory via the 4G LTE network. The Nokia AirScale platform can be upgraded to 5G via software, an evolutionary path that will help the industry automate more business. The 28 GHz band and massive MIMO antennas will deliver low latency and bandwidth for high performance industrial electronics manufacturing expo applications.

2. Nokia's digital transformation

The IntelliSense Factory is one of the practical examples of the Nokia 5G strategy. Nokia turns concepts into real-world applications for an end-to-end supply network that provides complete transparency for every step of electronics manufacturing expos and the supply chain process.

Currently, the plant uses LTE network technology to provide the low-latency wireless connectivity required for large-scale industrial electronics manufacturing expo automation, assembling and packaging base stations through wireless robots.

In order to make a smooth transition to the wireless future factory, the Nokia factory has installed an LTE private network covering the entire production area, supporting flexible, secure, and large-capacity connections in the factory, which is an essential step for building a 5G factory. In addition, Nokia is exploring the use of beacon and RFID-based technology for indoor positioning and has made some progress.

In today's global environment, the ability to efficiently move manufacturing capabilities from one location to another and support remote locations on demand is important. The equipment in the factory helps it to communicate face-to-face with people in another location seamlessly and efficiently, which is essential for Nokia to contact other remote electronics manufacturing expo factories, partners or customers at any time.

At the same time, VR and AR will also play an important role in this transformation. In the future, Nokia will be able to virtually train employees or control remote locations without the need to visit the VR solution. In order to implement the process of accessing material suppliers and partners, Nokia's cloud-based intelligent execution system will help Nokia's entire supply chain process to be seamlessly visualized.

In order to promote the development of Industry 4.0, Nokia's factory applied the concept of “Intelligence Awareness Supply Network” to deploy digital and robotics technology throughout the supply chain, not only to achieve automated production line integration and automation equipment required for intelligent manufacturing automation, but also to achieve Industrial electronics manufacturing expo IoT integration required by the industrialization and interconnection phases required in the informatization phase.

In the test of the world's first 5G real industrial application completed by the factory, Nokia adopted a 5G wireless access test network running in the 28 GHz band to support a large number of 5G applications.

IntelliSense factories transform manufacturing into wireless manufacturing and acquire data in a smarter way to further increase productivity and efficiency.
