6G sensing: A revolution in situational awareness
Per familiar sources, Nokia’s new 6G sensing technology is designed to give users a comprehensive “situational awareness” of their environment. This radar-like technology can see around corners and remotely interact with objects, ensuring user privacy while enhancing the ability to connect with the physical world.
Nokia’s demonstration of this technology highlighted its potential to redefine how people interact with their surroundings.
Safer railways with private wireless networks
In collaboration with Alstom, a French multinational firm, Nokia showcased a pioneering private wireless network for the National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) from Delhi to Meerut RRTS.
This network, the world’s first LTE/4.9G private wireless network built to support European Train Control System (ETCS) Level 2 Signaling, provides authorities with real-time location and movement insights, enhancing transport safety and efficiency.
Revolutionizing enterprise operations with RXRM
Nokia also presented its Real-time eXtended Reality Multimedia (RXRM) software, a solution designed to significantly increase safety and productivity within enterprises.
By enabling 360-degree video and audio capture, this software offers a tool for industrial and commercial clients striving to boost efficiency across various operations.
Defending the digital realm with DeepField Defender
In a world increasingly threatened by cyberattacks, Nokia’s DeepField Defender aims to stand out as a crucial line of defense. This technology will reportedly focus on counteracting distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks using specialized network routers and DDoS mitigation systems. Nokia promises this solution delivers enhanced scalability, precise control, and reliable detection at a cost-effective price.
Metaverse-based intelligent factory management system
Nokia’s showcase was dominated by its metaverse-based intelligent factory management system, a solution leveraging AI, machine learning, XR, blockchain, and decentralized networks. This system is designed to optimize factory operations, reducing errors and defects while enhancing efficiency and interactivity in industrial processes.
Integrating the metaverse into industrial applications represents a transformative journey, combining physical, digital, and human augmentation capabilities.
Thomas Hainzel, Head of Digital Industries Evolution & Partnerships at Nokia, emphasized the critical role of reliable, low-latency networks and connectivity in realizing the potential of the industrial metaverse. He highlighted the importance of starting with small-scale implementations and ensuring a holistic transformation encompassing technology, people, and processes.
In conclusion, the India Mobile Congress 2023 highlighted Nokia’s latest technological advancements. Introducing solutions that connect the digital and physical realms, Nokia showcased its ongoing contributions to the telecommunications sector and the evolving landscape of industrial operations and connectivity.
