Nokia has expanded its MX Industrial Edge platform with the introduction of four new applications that enhance users’ ability to gather, analyze, and secure information for enterprise connectivity purposes. The new applications are built on top of Nokia’s MXIE platform and leverage the benefits of its private network partnership extension with Kyndryl.
The applications are designed to enable users to collect, analyze, and secure data more efficiently, allowing for better decision-making and improved overall performance.
Four Applications are –
First one is Litmus Edge, it is an industrial IoT edge product, to enable real-time monitoring, predictive maintenance, and system analysis by providing a unified view of data collection, integration, analytics, and application insight. This capability could also support the creation and management of digital twin models, further enhancing the product’s usefulness for industrial IoT applications. Overall, Litmus Edge offers a comprehensive solution for organizations looking to improve operational efficiency and reduce costs through advanced data analysis and management.
Crosser Node is a data integration platform that enables the collection, connection, integration, and analysis of data in motion across a network. By facilitating live loops of streaming data between connected devices and the cloud, Crosser Node can support system monitoring and the creation of digital twin models. With its ability to seamlessly integrate data from various sources, Crosser Node provides organizations with a powerful tool for gaining valuable insights into their operations and improving overall efficiency.
Atos Computer Vision
The third application is Atos Computer Vision. It is an application designed for manufacturing environments that leverages artificial intelligence (AI) to enhance its capabilities. By utilizing deep learning algorithms, this application can detect defects, anomalies, or incorrect configurations in real-time, allowing organizations to quickly identify and address issues before they escalate. Overall, Atos Computer Vision is a powerful tool that can help manufacturers improve quality control, reduce downtime, and enhance overall productivity.
Palo Alto Networks
The fourth and final application is the Palo Alto Networks Next-Gen Firewall, which is a virtualized version of the popular Palo Alto Networks product. This application does not require any specific physical hardware and can be easily implemented within an enterprise environment. The Next-Gen Firewall offers a range of features, including intrusion detection and prevention, deep packet inspection, and distributed denial of service protection. With these advanced capabilities, organizations can enhance their network security and protect against a wide range of potential threats.
How it Started?
In late 2021, Nokia introduced its cloud-native MX Industrial Edge (MXIE) platform, which is designed to provide comprehensive management of operational technology services, including private networks. The platform includes a range of features, such as compute, storage, networking, and application management functions, all of which run on Nokia’s Digital Automation Cloud (DAC) to enable centralized management.
As an on-premises edge platform, MXIE offers organizations greater control over their data sovereignty, allowing them to more effectively manage and protect their data. Overall, MXIE represents a powerful tool for organizations seeking to enhance their operational efficiency and improve their overall performance.
