In a bid to give enterprises more choice in the way they digitalize operations to achieve their business goals, the Finnish multinational telecommunications company, Nokia today, has announced new platform capabilities and applications for its on-premise Mission Critical Industrial Edge (MXIE) compute solution.

Nokia’s New MXIE

The new enhancements will enable Nokia MXIE to host applications from different ecosystems, including legacy non-cloud native workloads, elevate operational technology (OT) network security, and facilitate application development to advance enterprise digital transformation

With MXIE, the firm introduced an ecosystem-neutral approach allowing enterprises to swiftly deploy edge innovations from the public cloud, industrial partner cloud, and Industrial Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) onto MXIE to complete their digital transformation. Nokia improves MXIE with new features and partner applications to boost enterprise innovation as the ecosystem expands.

Likewise, the new Nokia MXIE capabilities will make it possible for containerized applications and non-cloud native workloads to coexist in a secure environment. This allows Nokia MXIE to host a wide range of applications from many ecosystems, including legacy applications, which are frequently found in brownfield industrial campuses.

According to the tech goliath, it is expanding the capabilities of the platform by working with two new applications partners: Siemens MindConnect Software Agent on MXIE helps deliver seamless connectivity between industrial assets and systems, and Zscaler Private Access™ brings Zero Trust Security to MXIE to secure mission-critical Edge workloads, OT, and IIoT systems.

At the same time, the tech giant will be exhibiting at Hannover Messe Chicago (12-17 September) in the East Building Level 3, Booth 134757. Company executives will be on-hand to discuss Industry 4.0 transformation with industrial-grade wireless connectivity solutions.

Company’s Reactions 

Speaking on the enhancement, Karim Yaici, Senior Analyst, for Analysys Mason, said Nokia’s MXIE will help enterprises accelerate their digital transformation by facilitating access to OT and/foster innovation.

“On-premise edge is key to developing and deploying advanced industrial applications. Solutions such as Nokia MXIE will help enterprises accelerate their digital transformation by facilitating access to OT and to foster innovation by providing access to a growing ecosystem of developers and partners.”

On the other hand, Chris McReynolds, Vice President of Global Offerings, Network and Edge Practice for Kyndryl, pointed out that industrial customers are rapidly deploying Nokia private wireless networks to achieve high-performance wireless connectivity. 

“Nokia MXIE is an integral part of the solution which offers a converged compute platform to support the core operation of private wireless networks and host a multitude of OT edge computing applications. By leveraging Nokia MXIE, Kyndryl is helping customers to design, deploy and manage end-to-end industrial use cases, and with that are seeing a quick return on their investments and improvement to their industrial operations.”

In all, Stephan Litjens, Vice President of Enterprise Solutions for Nokia, added that the firm is committed to simplifying industry digital transformation, allowing companies to access and use their operational technology to meet their productivity, efficiency, safety, and sustainability goals.
