Nokia Plans a comeback again

Nokia joins hands with Airtel and BSNL to start 5G network in India. This will be a successful came back from Nokia after a long period of time.  

According to report, Nokia has signed a memorandum of understandings (MoUs) with Indian telecom giants Airtel and BSNL. Nokia during the Mobile World Congress 2017 had stated that it would expand their collaborative technology partnership to work on 5G technology standard and management of connected devices.

Thoughts behind these MoUs would be to introduce 5G here, and what are the steps required for the same, besides identifying applications to define the target segment, which will lead to a complete 5G strategy for telcoms,” Sanjay Malik, head of India market at Nokia, told ET.

He said that this was only an introductory phase as the commercial roll out of the 5G connectivity is expected to take place during 2019-2020.


Nokia is also setting up an experience centre in Bengaluru to try to better understand the stakeholder requirements for 5G in India.


It was previously reported that Nokia will also work with BSNL by sharing 5G technology concepts, new product launches and innovations available in the public domain that demonstrate possibilities of 5G, and IoT for the Indian market.

Mobile World Congress this year also saw the partnership between Samsung and Reliance Jio to work on 5G connectivity in India.
