With the increase in 5G adoption from both consumer and enterprise sectors, Nokia is bolstering its solutions with Nokia Smart Node, Network Slicing, and Intelligent Edge.
“5G is a key enabler for the Philippines’ digital transformation (DX) journey, and the next generation in connectivity will empower the country’s enterprises and organizations to prepare for Industry 4.0,” Nokia said. “Alongside bringing the country to the next era of connectivity, it also quickly responded to the increasing digital demands exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic with a government policy accelerating the nation’s strategy towards Industry 4.0.”
The Philippines is one of the earliest nations to deploy 5G in Southeast Asia.
“As the Philippines continues to move towards its Industry 4.0 roadmap, it is more critical than ever for enterprises to accelerate the adoption of technologies to unlock new opportunities and boost the Philippines’ economy,” said Carlos Reyes, head, Nokia Philippines.
