Meet our world-class standardization experts

Our world-class standardization experts are internationally renowned in their field. Nokia holds more than 100 board member, chair and other official positions across all key standardization and industry groups.

Nokia provides leadership in:
 

  • Mobile network standards organizations such as 3GPP, ETSI and O-RAN, along with key regional standards organizations such as OnGo Alliance and WInnForum
  • Fixed access standards organizations such as BBF and ITU-T, along with key regional standards organizations
  • IP routing and optics standards organizations such as IETF, ITU-T, IEEE 802, OIF, ONF and MEF

5G standards leadership

Nokia is one of the most active contributors and drivers of key features in 5G standardization organizations. More Nokia contributors have received the 3GPP Excellence Award than contributors from other companies. In addition, our experts chair some of the most important groups within the 3GPP and hold rapporteur positions for the central 5G-standards and their evolution.

Beyond 3GPP, Nokia holds key positions in groups relevant for 5G standardization, including chairing both the 5G Industry Association (5G-IA) board and the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) board. Nokia has also shaped the emerging 5G ecosystem through the creation of several organizations. In 2016, Nokia founded both the 5G Automotive Association (5GAA) and the OnGo Alliance. In 2018, Nokia created the 5G Alliance for Connected Industries and Automation (5G-ACIA).

Furthermore, Nokia is looking beyond 5G to shape the ecosystem and form standardization structure for the next generation, e.g. in the Next G Alliance group.
