Nokia Adds 5G And Edge Compute To WING IoT Grid

Nokia recently announced the expansion of its managed service WING with 5G and edge capabilities. This upgrade will allow operators to leverage 5G and IoT services without investing in the global infrastructure. Simply put, Nokia’s WING allows operators to implement 5G use cases without doing the heavy lifting.

The upgrade allows operators to provide 5G and IoT services with high security, low latency, and enhanced throughput in a faster and cost-effective manner, thanks to the pay-as-you-go model. This will allow operators across domains such as public services, connected cars, remote healthcare, and real-time industrial monitoring and control to leverage 5G services.

Ankur Bhan, Head of Nokia WING Business, said, “The innovative Nokia WING infrastructure offers superior IoT service experience through global network presence, unified orchestration, and consistent service level agreements to operators’ enterprise customers. We have now upgraded WING’s global architecture to 5G to further help operators to monetize IoT opportunities faster and cost-effectively in the 5G era. We are actively working with operators, who have a global enterprise customer base and need to address their increasing needs for secure, low-latency IoT use cases across geographical borders.”

Nokia has designed the Worldwide IoT Network Grid (WING) to meet the requirements of latency volume and velocity of data and security by leveraging a flexible, distributed architecture that will allow the upgrade to be smooth.

WING allows the separation of the user plane function and enables it to be extended to the far network edge or enterprise premises, guaranteeing ultra-low latency. Also, the distributed WING infrastructure enhancement can be executed with Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC) technology. This improves the ability to support compute-intensive IoT services like the AR/VR maintenance, and cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) use cases.
