AT&T has added Nokia’s end-to-end industrial-grade capabilities to its AT&T Private Cellular Networks solutions to drive Industry 4.0 among corporates.
Businesses across the United States can build private networks through AT&T using Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) spectrum and Nokia infrastructure. Both Nokia Digital Automation Cloud and Modular Private Wireless platforms will be offered by AT&T.
AT&T’s on-premises edge portfolio, which already includes 5G-capable AT&T Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC), is expanding to offer these additional private cellular solutions with Nokia to meet those Industry 4.0 needs.
This is a great solution for enterprise customers – including manufacturing, logistics, energy and education – that want to use CBRS LTE private wireless solutions as part of their networking strategy.
Robert Boyanovsky, Vice President of Mobility and IoT with AT&T said, “AT&T is all about connections. Businesses have evolved as much as mobile networks have – and we’ll continue to work with companies like Nokia to deliver the reliable networking solutions and capabilities that our enterprise customers need.”
Raghav Sahgal, President, Nokia Enterprise said, “We have a long and storied relationship with AT&T, and now we’re tapping into our joint enterprise expertise to help businesses realize the Industry 4.0 opportunity. Nokia is a leader in private wireless deployments, giving us tremendous insights into the challenges and requirements for deploying this technology across multiple industries. We look forward to working with the AT&T team to bring these insights to businesses.”
Ricky Corker, President of Customer Operations of Nokia Americas said, “With our broad portfolio from mobile network solutions to private 5G solutions, Nokia is enabling AT&T to serve the connectivity needs of all of its customers and to help grow its business for Industry 4.0.”
