We strongly believe in the power of collaboration by working with industry partners and engaging with policy makers, international and multi-lateral organizations, civil society and academia, to help transform towards a digital economy and society. We believe digital technology can strongly contribute to reaching the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGS). 

Our Code of Conduct provides guidance on how we deal with government officials. Our policy is not to participate in the political or electoral process through direct donations to political groups, but to protect our interests through lawful and transparent advocacy with government.

Besides working with individual governments, we work with a number of key multilateral organizations including the World Economic Forum (WEF), the United Nations Broadband Commission, UNESCO, the G-20 through the B-20, the UN and ITU EQUALS Global Partnership, as well as a variety of industry driven organizations.

Trialing the use of network features to help ensure public safety communications are given priority in Finland

Nokia, together with Finland's public safety network provider, State Security Networks Group, and Telia Finland have successfully trialed the use of network features, developed by Nokia, which ensure public safety communications are given priority over any other voice or data traffic in busy 4G/LTE networks.

LTE can support mission-critical operations securely and cost-effectively, enabling new capabilities for public safety agencies, such as video, in addition to traditional voice communications, to enhance situational awareness, command and control, and the safety of both first responders and the public. As such, a vital step in the transition towards LTE-based public safety networks is to give priority to first responders and their command centers allowing them to share mission-critical information in emergency situations.

Nokia, State Security Networks and Telia Finland began testing the features with public authorities in 2016 to accelerate Finland's transition to LTE-based public safety communications.
