Reliable, secure, real time OT data processing with on-premises edge
Industry 4.0 transforms asset-intensive industries through the digitalization of processes and systems across the entire OT environment, resulting in an explosion in the volume and velocity of raw operational data from machines, sensors and workers.
To harvest real value from this data, industries need a compute solution that helps to reduce IIoT complexity, has high processing capacity, ensures data security and sovereignty and meets the latency needs of industries' mission-critical OT processes.
Only a resilient on-premises edge solution can meet the mission-critical needs of OT processes:

My OT operations are vulnerable to internet connectivity breaks
Mission-critical operations require very high availability (>99.99%) and resiliency especially for worker safety or real-time machine control applications that cannot be fulfilled by normal IT service levels, especially when processed externally in the cloud. Beyond that the availability and reliability of remote cloud-based solutions are heavily dependent on the quality and the capacity of the internet link.
Our Nokia MX Industrial Edge on-premises solution can work even without the availability of an internet link as all business and mission critical processing occurs on-site. Public internet connectivity disruptions do not impact mission critical data processing.
Our solution can be made even more resilient deployed with geo-redundant architecture for disaster recovery.
I can’t implement critical OT use cases because of high latency impacts.
Mission-critical operations - like worker safety or real-time machine control - require very low latency (>10ms). In case of remote cloud-based processing the geographical distance increases latency (every 100km distance adds 1 ms), while network service reliability diminishes.
Our MXIE on-premises edge solution processes all data locally - eliminating latency and reliability degradations to meet the requirements of mission critical operations. This true real-time control increases productivity and reduces waste.
I need help to manage growing complexity in my industrial environment
In my current environment I’m collecting data from diverse, siloed IIoT systems and I need to manage complexity relating to different industrial protocols and data processing applications.
Our Nokia MXIE on-premises edge solution simplifies IIoT use-case integration and unifies industrial workloads with "click-to-deploy" applications. Edge orchestration tools offer simplicity through automated application lifecycle management and ensure new security, stability and feature updates are deployed to the platform.
I am concerned about my OT data security if processed in the cloud
Industrial data analytics solutions often run in the remote cloud - so my sensitive OT data is carried over the internet and processed in a remote compute facility – beyond my control.
By deploying edge compute physically on-premises, sensitive OT data never leaves the site, but instead is securely processed on-premises.
I feel locked-in! I can’t deploy the apps I need on my existing edge
OT vendors often create edge solutions that don’t support ecosystem neutrality meaning only applications from the system vendor can be deployed. Because of this lock-in solutions from other vendors can’t be used.
Our Nokia MXIE on-premises edge solution supports ecosystem neutrality enabling the deployment of a wide ecosystem of applications in several categories from various vendors.
I struggle to collect and process data from many of my legacy systems
Most industrial sites are brownfield environments with multiple legacy systems from multiple vendors using bespoke ad-hoc processing units (PC, PLC).
Our MXIE on-premises edge solution offers a range of click-to-deploy applications allowing our customers to benefit from protocol translation. With partner applications like Crosser or Litmus, data from different sources can be collected, standardized and analyzed.
How it works?
Nokia MX Industrial Edge can be deployed in any industrial environment to run application workloads that power I4.0 use cases.
It can also be deployed with the Nokia DAC private wireless connectivity solution whereby the control functions of the 4.9G/5G private network will be one of the applications running on Nokia MXIE.
Simple and robust solution with a single edge configuration:
