Nokia MX Boost for private wireless aggregation
Nokia introduced MX Boost for private wireless which combines disparate radio technologies and spectrum to achieve reliability and performance. Users can aggregate radio technologies, such as Wi-Fi and 4.9G/LTE, as well as spectrum, to optimise performance, even in challenging radio conditions for real-time applications such as those typical in ports, metal factories and mines.
The MX Boost routing applications run on connected devices and at the Nokia MX Industrial Edge (MXIE) on-premises solution. Leveraging unique algorithms and real-time link testing, MX Boost automatically selects the strongest radio link and delivers the combined radio stream to either boost throughput in challenging radio conditions, or determinism.
Nokia MX Boost allows industries to choose how they combine connectivity paths to meet their specific needs, such as enhancing private 4.9G/LTE data rate and capacity by aggregating 4.9G/LTE and Wi-Fi, while keeping the reliability of 4.9G/LTE.
For industrial sites, MX Boost also functions with brownfield non-Nokia Wi-Fi or other wireless technologies, allowing enterprises to combine it with private 4.9G/LTE for increased determinism and increased capacity. As part of this new offering, the MX Boost routing functions will be made available as an application running on Nokia MX Industrial Edge and will launch new field routers as part of a new range of industrial devices that also support the new MX Boost capabilities.
MX Boost is used in the Nokia Train-to-Ground solution to meet the challenges of mission-critical urban and metro rail communications. The solution uses multipath connectivity to provide performance in challenging situations, such as when travelling at high speed, through tunnels, handing over between two service provider networks and at busy stations.
The SCG22 mobile and the hand-portable SC20 operate within 136–174 MHz.
Cconsolidates various 3GPP functionalities into a single cloud native network function.
Offers flexibility for industries connecting assets as part of their digital transformation.
