The new Nokia wireless router will help utility customers modernize their grid distribution and build converged field area networks to reap the benefits of the smart grid.”
Many power utilities currently use narrowband or proprietary wireless solutions to connect their field devices to each other and the control center.
Grid reliability, power quality and automation are all key areas that will require improved field area networks.
The newest addition to the Nokia Service Routing portfolio merges IP/MPLS and LTE/3G technologies to provide utilities state-of-the-art wireless connectivity for grid devices located deep in a highly scalable distribution network.
As Smart Grids are deployed, utilities will face a huge proliferation in the number of field devices they need to connect and manage.

Nokia Targets Enterprise, Smart Cities with New IoT Applications for IMPACT
Though he couldn’t disclose what other solutions Nokia is currently working on, he said they will fall into some of the other verticals Nokia is focused on, such as health.
Nokia doubled down on its Internet of Things platform Tuesday, launching a set of new applications, capabilities, and connectivity options aimed at speeding IoT deployments.
“We created the platform about half a year ago, so it’s exciting to see that we now can work on rounding out the offers,” Frank Ploumen, CTO of IoT Platform and applications at Nokia, said.
IMPACT also now includes analytics capabilities powered by Nokia Bell Labs’ machine learning algorithms and comes with new connectivity options including licensed NB-IoT and unlicensed LoRa.
Ploumen noted IMPACT also now includes a video analytics capability that has been in development for the past five years at Nokia Bell Labs.

And the stakes got even higher this week after Nokia announced some important developments to the IoT platform.
It might be called the Internet of Things (IoT), but it sometimes looks more like a growing collection of disparate networks that have very little to do with one another.
It is doing so through a platform called IMPACT (which handily stands for Intelligent Management Platform for All Connected Things).
While not about to neglect its telco partners, Nokia thinks that capturing new enterprise customers will drive its future growth.
