Nokia Registers 3,000 Patents For 5G

Nokia says it has registered more than 3,000 5G-related patents with the European Telecommunications Standards Institute.

Thanks to previous 5G foundational inventions by Bell Labs, which Nokia purchased in 2016, Nokia has been working with the main standards organization to establish 5G standards, enabling the rollout of 5G networks.

The 5G standardization process is managed by the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP), the parent mobile telephone standards organization.

“The benefits of 5G are initially in massive amounts of new capacity for consumers, but as the new technology and network architecture develops, it will enable new applications for enterprises and industrial businesses, with end-to-end 5G networks forming the critical fabric for the fourth Industrial Revolution,” stated Marcus Weldon, Nokia chief technology officer and president of Nokia Bell Labs.
