Nokia’s roadside cloud adds flexibility

First publishedIntertraffic

Day 3

Networking communications equipment vendor Nokia is looking to edge computing to solve road operators’ problems, bringing legacy networks together under its ‘roadside cloud’ concept.

“We don’t want road operators to get rid of their existing infrastructure,” explains Matthias Jablonowski, global practice lead – road at Nokia. But it believes connecting roadside infrastructure with a central management system via its roadside cloud – based on the multi-access edge computing (MEC) standard – will allow operators flexibility to add their own, specific applications.

“The road operator can easily deploy them,” he adds. “They can also invite someone else to put applications on.” The company has a standard process to on-board the applications, called Nokia AppFactory.

Uwe Puetzschler, head of car2X at Nokia, explains: “One objective is that networks deliver much better functionality to the ITS community.” Jablonowski says platforms need to be agnostic, able to cope with wired sensors, Wi-Fi and V2X communication, for example.
