Nokia has today reaffirmed its commitment to supporting enterprises in the Philippines in their digital transformation journey and advancing the nation’s Industry 4.0 roadmap.
At a roundtable held today in Taguig City, Metro Manila, the company also offered key insights into ongoing 5G trends and developments, and how, as the next generation of connectivity, 5G will accelerate Filipino enterprises’ digital transformation and help sustain the nation’s growth during its Industry 4.0 strategy.
The Philippines was one of the earliest Southeast Asian nations to take a lead in 5G deployment. 5G is a key enabler for the Philippines’ digital transformation journey, and the next generation in connectivity will empower the country’s enterprises and organisations to prepare for Industry 4.0. Alongside bringing the country to the next era of connectivity, it also quickly responded to the increasing digital demands exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic with a government policy accelerating the nation’s strategy towards Industry 4.0.
As a recognized leader in 5G and networking for Industry 4.0, Nokia has worked to deliver enterprise solutions and enhance the Philippines’s enterprise and industrial ecosystems, as explained during its latest roundtable session today. Nokia is committed to bringing purpose-designed solutions for Industry 4.0 digitalization and beyond.
From solutions such as Nokia Smart Node, Network Slicing and Intelligent Edge, the company offers mission-critical solutions that can transform industries and enterprises, aligning them with the government’s Industry 4.0 strategy.
Nokia also explained that private wireless has proven to be the critical enabler to accelerate Industry 4.0. Together, Industry 4.0 and private wireless enable industries to fuse physical with digital processes by connecting all machines as well as sensors and mobile workers in the most flexible, affordable, secure, and reliable way available, providing mission-critical solutions for enterprise customers.
Carlos Reyes, Head of Nokia Philippines, said, “The Philippines is a pioneer in 5G development, and is one of the most exciting countries in the Southeast Asia region today as it continues to expand the nationwide 5G deployment. We have a long history of working in the Philippines to accelerate digital transformation for businesses and the community, and we remain committed to delivering greater operational productivity and efficiency through our next generation-communication technology. As the Philippines continues to move towards its Industry 4.0 roadmap, it is more critical than ever for enterprises to accelerate the adoption of technologies to unlock new opportunities and boost the Philippines’ economy.”
