Ray Pache, Senior Sales and Channel Executive with Infinity (a distribution partner of Nokia), and Infinity’s Sachin Biradar, Senior Solutions Architect, Private Wireless Networks, host a webinar that offers insight into Nokia’s Digital Automation Cloud (NDAC).

The journey from 3.0 to 4.0 is in full swing. While 3.0 may cover consumer needs such as smartphones, e-commerce, and social media use, 4.0 manages multiple applications with low latency and high performance that delivers:

  • Increased productivity and economic value,
  • Efficiency with process automation,
  • Increased agility to meet quickly changing requirements,
  • More accurate business decision-making via intelligent insights,
  • Increased worker safety and productivity, and
  • Sustainability and lowered environmental impact.

 

And 4.0 does all this while maintaining asset-heavy industries’ “must-have” communication needs. 

 

Industry experts estimate that 90% of today’s data within organizations is not yet organized and collected, creating a large information gap, missed opportunities, lack of efficiency, and increased expenses. Enterprise private wireless solutions can address this need, offering the ability to connect anything, anywhere with secure networks without the challenges of expense and lack of mobility and flexibility in wired solutions. 

 

LTE/4.9G: Designed for Mission Critical Communications

The LTE/4.9G offers users:

  • Wide and deep coverage,
  • Military-grade security,
  • One network for all apps,
  • Predictable performance to provide data for future decision making, and
  • High-speed mobility.
