  • In addition, Nokia and Dawiyat will collaborate to develop solutions to help the mining industry use digital solutions to adapt to fluctuations in demand, better control operational expenditures and enhance safety.

Powered by Nokia's solutions, automation enables businesses to cost-effectively boost production and overall efficiency, which in turn leads to an increase in revenue. A Dawiyat Integrated network that combines a highly reliable and scalable IP/MPLS core with pervasive GPON broadband connectivity will support a faster implementation of smart grid while providing a foundation for further innovation.”
