More than 60 percent of Nokia’s network business revenue came from Mobile Access, which is comprised of mobile networking solutions and global services operating segments. Nokia’s strategy has shifted to providing end-to-end networks and being at the forefront of products for the 5G era.

Nokia has strategically focused on network infrastructure. For example, in 2016 Nokia completed its acquisition of French telecommunications equipment company Alcatel-Lucent. This merger provided access to a lucrative combination of fixed and mobile networks. Nokia has strong potential in the emerging market for 5G infrastructures.

Network evolution towards the 6G era –

The world has changed quickly in recent times, and the pace of change is only accelerating. To address these rapid changes, we have been looking at the trends and the direction of technological change in a company-wide exercise we call our Technology Vision 2030. Our Technology Vision 2030 summarizes how we see the world evolving and guides our technology strategy going forward. As we move from the 5G era onwards to 5G-Advanced, and leading up to the 6G era, the communications fabric will need to be architected differently.

Going into 2030, we believe that two of the most impactful drivers that will dominate network traffic and shape the evolution of networks will be human augmentation and digital-physical fusion.
