5G standards leadership
Driving the 5G engine with research and standardization
Powered by world-renowned research from Nokia Bell Labs, Nokia has been the forerunner in defining the fundamental technologies for the 5G era.
Nokia uses its leadership position to ensure that 5G technology remains indispensably valuable to people and organizations that use it every day. We are driving standardization efforts to meet consumer, enterprise and industrial requirements not addressed in previous cellular standards, and we are constantly anticipating future needs by innovating new applications enabled by 5G.
We have one of the industry’s broadest and strongest portfolios, with about 4,300 patent families declared essential to cellular standards, including more than 4,000 families for 5G.
