Nokia and Alcon to Deploy Private Wireless Network to Sigma Lithium


Nokia has announced it has been chosen by Sigma Lithium, a leading global lithium producer, to deploy the first private LTE wireless campus network in the Americas that supports the mining of lithium, a metal critical to the production of batteries that power electric vehicles. Nokia will work with partner Alcon to roll out the private wireless network, which will support 200 Sigma employees and add multiple innovative mining applications that boost productivity and operational efficiency.

With the addition of a Nokia private LTE network based on Nokia Digital Automation Cloud (Nokia DAC), the company say it is ratcheting up its goal to produce next-generation EV batteries in a carbon neutral, socially and environmentally sustainable manner, deploying robust dedicated bandwidth and throughput across its sites. Connecting workers with certified ruggedized devices, industrial edge computing and a catalogue of ecosystem-neutral applications contribute to the creation of a safer working environment and enhance productivity and operational efficiency with crucial mining apps such as dispatch, push-to-talk and push-to-video, and smart badge systems.

“This exciting collaboration with Alcon will bring robust connectivity to world-class lithium mining leader Sigma Lithium and accelerate digitalization. Dedicated, mission-critical connectivity connecting industrial devices and applications is at the heart of revolutionizing the way the mining sector operates – keeping employees safe and enabling high-performance operations that deliver results.” said David de Lancelloti, Vice President Enterprise Campus Edge Business at Nokia.
