February 07, 2020

“As one of the major European manufacturers, Nokia is of strategic importance to Deutsche Telekom. It is well known that Deutsche Telekom is pursuing a multi-vendor strategy so that we are not dependent on just one supplier. This is an elementary part of our security philosophy. However, as in the past, Deutsche Telekom will not comment on individual contractual relationships and strategic purchasing decisions”, said Claudia Nemat, Board Member Technology & Innovation, Deutsche Telekom. “In 2019 we have made many steps together with Nokia to make Deutsche Telekom’s networks evolve towards 5G readiness, including all network domains, from radio and fixed access to transport and core, and continue to do so in 2020 and onwards”

“We have been a long-term partner of Deutsche Telekom and have been proud to work with them extensively over the years, providing leading network technology and services. We continue to work extensively with Deutsche Telekom which is one of our most significant customers, both in Europe and the U.S.”, said Federico Guillén, President of Customer Operations, EMEA & APAC, Nokia.
