Marcus Weldon, president, Nokia Bell Labs
What is the product?
Nokia recently introduced its ‘Future X for industries’ strategy and architecture, developed by Bell Labs, to boost productivity improvements across various industry sectors. As technologies such as industrial internet of things (IIOT); edge cloud supporting augmented intelligence and advanced security analytics; and endto-end 5G capable networks become a reality, they will radically speed up the digital transformation of various industries.
Why is it important?
Emerging Industry 4.0 applications will require seamlessly interconnected systems that can sense, analyse, optimise, and control key attributes and actions across a broad range of assets including machinery, tools and devices. Nokia’s Future X for industries architecture provides a framework for open, connected systems for industries that can accelerate the digitisation and automation of these physical assets.
Why is it different?
It is now possible for (organisations) in both the digital and physical economies to accelerate their digital transformations. The Future X for industries architecture is designed to describe the essential foundation of this Industry 4.0 revolution.
