Nokia is showcasing the second generation of the vendor's Factory in a Box container solution at the 5G Arena during Hannover Messe 2019 in Germany.
Factory in a Box 2.0 is designed to demonstrate how industry 4.0 solutions for manufacturers can be packed, transported and brought online within hours.
The solution combines additive manufacturing technologies with augmented and virtual reality and robotics solutions, as well as connectivity using Nokia's private 4G/5G equipment.
Meanwhile a semi-automated production workflow has been integrated with Nokia's Worldwide IoT Network Grid, which is designed to help mobile operators deliver a better global IoT experience to enterprise customers.
Finally, the solution is designed with a Nokia Digital Automation Cloud, which is targeted at industrial environments large and small.
"We could tell from the positive feedback we received on the Factory in a Box last year that there is a lot of potential for this concept in the manufacturing industry,” Nokia VP of supply network and engineering Grant Marshall aid.
“This year, we have raised the bar again, and Factory in a Box 2.0 is now connected to Nokia WING and has Nokia DAC on board, making it even more flexible, secure and efficient.”
