Nokia and MEXT, the Turkish Employers’ Association of Metal Industries Technology Center, have announced that they are partnering to advance Digital Transformation of the Turkish industrial sector and enable the local ecosystem to jointly work on 5G private wireless innovation.
Nokia will deploy its 5G private wireless Digital Automation Cloud (DAC) solution at the MEXT Technology Centre, connecting more than 10 manufacturing use cases on display and adding more.
MEXT is operating one of the world’s largest and most comprehensive Digital Transformation and capability building centres. Located in Istanbul, Atasehir, it supports Turkish industrial companies along their Digital Transformation journey towards Industry 4.0.
The Technology Centre includes an ecosystem of more than 50 globally recognised technology providers, universities and institutions. Nokia will become a partner of MEXT and collaborate within this ecosystem, enabling 5G technology experience in the industrial context, although 5G is not currently commercially available in Turkey.
“It is our great pleasure to collaborate with MEXT in the context of digitalisation of the industrial manufacturing sector in Turkey, a key industry for the Turkish economy,” said Ozgur Erzincan, Country Manager Turkey at Nokia. “Although 5G is not yet a commercial reality in Turkey, there is a lot of interest from Turkish enterprises to explore the possibilities of 5G private wireless solutions. For us at Nokia, it is of utmost importance to support a local 5G vertical ecosystem and be the trailblazer in the Turkish Industry to leverage 5G for increased competitiveness.”Click below to share this article
