Explore the timeline of our patented innovations


Innovation is in our DNA.

For decades, our inventions have been helping people to connect and communicate. 

Our interactive innovations gallery showcases a selection from our industry leading patent portfolio. It highlights our contribution to the development of the communications industry. Many of the innovations featured here are also fundamental to areas beyond cellular communications, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), consumer electronics, machine learning and augmented reality/virtual reality (AR/VR). In fact, entire industries are built on our inventions.

In 2023 alone, we filed patents on more than 2,300 new inventions enabling 5G networks, connected 5G devices and more. And this annual number of patent filings is expected to grow as we continue to invest heavily in R&D and standardization. 

Research and development is – and always has been – at the heart of Nokia.
