As digital transformation accelerates, so does the need for next generation connectivity. From smart phones to smart factories, 5G has the power and performance needed for resource-intensive big data and IoT, ensuring devices and people can access critical applications, in real-time, wherever they are.

Why 5G?

5G addresses the wireless connectivity requirements of today’s industrial operations, public safety and critical infrastructure.

  • Predictable performance – 99.9999% reliability rate
  • Vast capacity – 1 million connected devices per km2
  • Ultra-reliable low latency – 1 millisecond
  • Intrinsically secure – mutual authentication and encryption
  • Widespread coverage – 75m to 30km with no line of sight required

Transforming industries

How does the speed, reliability and connectivity of 5G support the business case for private networks? 


5G-enabled technologies are the foundation of smart manufacturing and smart factories, with reliable, fast and secure data transmission critical to the success of IoT applications.

5G improves the density and performance of robotics, autonomous vehicles and automation technologies.

Transport and logistics

Private networks enhance logistics specifically around tracking, monitoring and sorting packages and shipments integrated with inventory systems.

This increases throughput without increasing the number of people.


5G can transform government operations, providing access to unprecedented levels of real-time information from any device, anytime and anywhere, especially for field workers.

It can also improve public infrastructure, creating smart, hyperconnected communities.


When sites are located outside the range of commercial networks, Wi-Fi is often used as a wireless solution, with subsequent coverage issues and maintenance complexity.

Private 5G enhance worker safety, predictive maintenance and training.


There are few facilities with higher device densities than healthcare. Security is also at a premium.

The high reliability of 5G also makes it easier to access improved mobile connectivity for safety critical equipment as it moves around facilities.

Nokia estimates that using 5G to power automated guided vehicles (AGVs) in industrial settings can result in an 18% reduction in transport accidents, a 30% increase in transportation capacity and a 40% reduction in late deliveries.
