Digita and Siemens start collaboration: “Secure 5G private networks bring new opportunities for industrial digitalization”
Industrial 5G private networks provide wireless data transmission at high speeds and enable secure communication between devices.
Helsinki 6 November 2023 – Although the two companies are different, Digita and Siemens complement each other with their service offerings. Each company has special expertise that creates an excellent basis for cooperation. Digita’s expertise lies in the design, construction, maintenance, and updating of private networks. Siemens’ strengths, on the other hand, include an international network, industrial automation, and digitalization solutions, as well as cybersecurity.
“Secure 5G private networks bring new opportunities for industrial digitalization. Together, we want to help industrial customers benefit from this opportunity by, for example, improving their production efficiency and increasing safety and reliability,” says Digita COO Markus Ala-Hautala.
The collaboration also makes it possible to create entirely new ways of using applications such as robotics and augmented reality.
Private network solutions are data-secure networks that are always tailored to the organization’s needs. The operation of the networks is optimized on the basis of needs and applications. The service offers reliable and functional telecommunications solutions for challenging industrial environments, among other things. The collaboration between Digita and Siemens will enable organizations to build a competitive advantage using the latest technological solutions. By utilizing Siemens’ technologies, Digita can implement end-to-end solutions that allow for reliable communication between devices.
“Traditional telecommunications solutions often involve challenges when, for example, the connection changes across base stations, which can cause unwanted interruptions in the operation of equipment. These challenges are not an issue in 5G networks,” says Henri Viljasjärvi, who is responsible for the Private Networks business at Digita.
“When it comes to 5G technology, Siemens needs reliable partners who can deliver and who can support customers in design, deliveries, and maintenance. Digita has a nationwide support network, as well as expertise, to offer fast and reliable support for industrial companies,” says Head of Customer Service Business Unit at Siemens Finland and Baltics Ari Varelius from Siemens.
Digita and Siemens will present their private network solutions at the Teknologia 23 event at the Helsinki Expo and Convention Center on November 7–9, 2023. Digita will be at stand 6m91 and Siemens at stand 6c50. Henri Viljasjärvi, Director of Business Development at Digita, will be on the Tivia stage at 12 noon on November 9 to talk about “Industry 4.0: When a plant goes from a building to a data source.”
