Digital microbrewery launched by Nokia and the University of Technology Sydney concocts the right pint of beer

By

Nokia and the University of Technology Sydney launch a digital microbrewery, touted to be the world’s first private wireless and 5G-connected facility, forming part of UTS’ Industry 4.0 research site.

Nokia says the facility specialises in digital automation. It utilises a cloud-based digital twin of an actual brewery to optimise the brewing process.

UTS’s Industry 4.0 Nano-Brewery also forms part of an international production network with an identical physical twin set up in TU Dortmund University in Germany.

The 5G-connected brewery captures and monitors production data at every step of the brewing process. It then uses this data, together with data from the physical twin in Dortmund and a digital twin in the cloud, to optimise the process.



Nokia’s FastMile 5G Gateways provides 5G, and is connected to a campus-wide Nokia Digital Automation Cloud 5G Standalone private wireless network.

The network is delivered using multiple Nokia AirScale Indoor Radio (ASiR) small cells positioned throughout the UTS Tech Lab campus.

The private wireless 5G network is part of Nokia 5G Futures Lab which opened in November 2021. It is already supporting other Industry 4.0 projects within Tech Lab such as the Australian Government-funded Nokia/UTS 5G Connected Cobots project.

“Our goal is to promote Industry 4.0 principles to local industry by offering a testbed that gives partners the keys to improve their own manufacturing processes and gain business intelligence. Our international collaboration with TU Dortmund and Nokia allows us to globalise the outcomes of our testbed,” comments UTS professor and director of centre for advanced manufacturing Jochen Deuse.

"In the digital microbrewery, we showcase how 5G private wireless networks and cloud-based technologies help optimise the brewing process and move ever closer to achieving the perfect pint,” concludes Nokia president of mobile networks Tommi Uitto.
