Problems solved

I can't get good coverage using Wi-Fi

Wi-Fi access points on high ceilings are unable to provide suficient indoor and outdoor coverage since the coverage area is too large

My current solution does not provide reliable performance

Despite adding more Wi-Fi access points and tweaking network parameters, my workers are still complaining about lagging applications and use case bugs even in coverage areas.

Mobility is a problem - Wi-Fi handover cannot keep up with the connectivity needs of my mobile assets (AMRs, forklift trucks, etc)

Wi-Fi is unable to support mobility leading to latency peaks when handing over from one access point to another

I need to connect more workers, machines and other assets to Wi-Fi to enable new use cases but I'm worried it won't support the increased load

My Wi-Fi network is overloaded and adding more access points or new channels will only degrade performance given the increased interference that it will create

How DAC private wireless works

The solution is made up of four simple components: our portfolio of indoor/outdoor 4.9G/LTE & 5G radios, our edge solution (MX Industrial Edge) that runs the core network and industrial applications processing, IP transport to interconnect the components, and a cloud-based Nokia DAC manager for easy single pane management.

Nokia DAC architecture

Designed for easy enterprise IT integration and operation, Nokia DAC private wireless is plug and play and includes everything you need to get up and running in minutes. Benefit from an easy-to-use DAC manager enterprise GUI, automated operation and cloud-based managed services provided by Nokia or other preferred partner.

Customer success stories


Use case: Poor Wi-Fi coverage in factory & between buildings led to issues with AMR efficiency and lack of reliability prevented new use cases from being implemented.


Use case: Wireless connectivity that can reliably operate in harsh conditions where temperatures of -30 degrees Celsius and frequent blasts in an open pit mine create obstacles for mine automation

Lufthansa technik

Use case: Airline technicians have to go to Lufthansa Technik's hangar to inspect aicraft engines as no precise remote inspection is possible
