Creating the future for 155+ years
Building the digital world
The inventions we’ve pioneered - from the transistor to the first satellite - have paved the way for the digital potential all around us.
We’re continuing to invent the new technology of the future for a world that acts together like never before.
For the past three decades, we’ve focused on transforming telecommunications.
From the first GSM call and the invention of the text message to creating the first 3G network, our game-changing innovations have connected the world.
Pioneering the future of networks
With our recent breakthroughs in microchips, massive MIMO and optical communications we’ve enabled increasingly large amounts of data to move seamlessly across the world through networks.
Today, as we seek to capture opportunity in the next technological era, we are driving a next evolution of networking where networks meet cloud.
Inventions that changed the world
Network on the Moon
Began creating the first network on the Moon.
We develop the concept of the Massive MIMO, which is now a foundational technology in 5G with great improvements in efficiency.
Self Organizing Networks
We create Self Organizing Networks that can automatically make adjustments to optimize and adapt to changes in the system.
