Nokia to drive AI at its upcoming Open Innovation Lab in MEA


The new Lab will drive innovation for Cloud RAN by leveraging collaborative advantage with strategic partners and accelerate the adoption of technologies such as AI/ML for network automation and optimization.

Nokia has shared plans to launch an Open Innovation lab in Dubai, UAE, to drive regional innovation in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region. The initiative will also increase the regional focus of Nokia’s established global strategic collaborations with Dell Technologies and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE).

The lab will focus on three important areas that will benefit operators and enterprises. The first area aims to drive further innovation in the Cloud RAN space with Nokia’s technology partners, such as Dell and HPE, as well as working with market-leading hyperscalers and other ecosystem players. The Nokia anyRAN approach helps evolve Cloud RAN towards a solution, which will work alongside purpose-built RAN with feature performance consistency. This approach brings the flexibility of choice of technology suppliers and operating environments, meeting the expectations of operators and enterprises for openness and efficiency.

The second area of focus will be on private wireless and industrial networks. The lab will showcase innovative Industry 4.0 use cases and industrial edge applications on Nokia’s market-leading MX Industrial Edge (MXIE) platform to help enterprises accelerate their transition to Industry 4.0 in the region.

The third area of focus will be on network intelligence. Nokia aims to accelerate the adoption of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning solutions for network automation and optimization. The Nokia MantaRay solution portfolio for intelligent network management and automation will be showcased and used in this lab.
