Wednesday, November 07, 2018 | Comments

Nokia and China Unicom created a private Long Term Evolution (LTE) network for a BMW Brilliance Automotive plant being built in Shenyang city in the Liaoning province of China. The Nokia solution will leverage China Unicom's LTE network to provide low-latency support for smart manufacturing activities at the plant.

China Unicom is running the Nokia virtualized Multi-access Edge Computing (vMEC) solution over its network following deployment, which was completed in October. Once integration with the enterprise network is complete, the private LTE network will support secure voice and data communication between staff at the plant as well as machine-to-machine (M2M) communications including wireless video monitoring, production line maintenance inspection, indoor navigation, industrial robots and indoor navigation.

"Smart manufacturing is a key priority for the transformation of the manufacturing industry in China, and we are pleased to work with China Unicom on this important project, said Gao Bo, head of the China Unicom customer team at Nokia Shanghai Bell said. “Being a software-only solution, the Nokia vMEC can be integrated easily into existing enterprise IT infrastructure to enhance business-critical processes and deliver new operational efficiency."

BMW Brilliance Automotive is a joint venture between the BMW Group and Brilliance China Automotive Holdings.
