Sigma Lithium taps Nokia, Alcon for wireless network

Global lithium producer Sigma Lithium has selected Nokia to deploy the first private LTE wireless campus network in the Americas that supports the mining of lithium. Nokia will work with partner Alcon to roll out the network, which will connect more than 200 Sigma employees and mine equipment.

“At Sigma, we are dedicated to powering the next generation of EVs in the most sustainable manner. We are very excited to work with Nokia and Alcon to enhance worker safety and efficiency while continuing to expand our exploration of a metal critical to the world’s energy transition,” said Sigma Lithium COO Marcelo Marinho.

The addition of a Nokia private LTE network based on Nokia Digital Automation Cloud (Nokia DAC) will deploy robust dedicated bandwidth and throughput across Sigma’s sites. “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,” concluded David de Lancelloti, vice president, Enterprise Campus Edge Business at Nokia.
