Nokia Signs A Contract with Broadcom
Broadcom has signed a contract with Nokia to offer special 5G chips. As a result, Nokia became the third largest company to enter into such a deal with Broadcom after Intel and Marvell in March.
This contract will help the Finnish company expand its efforts and shipments, and it is expected that 35 percent of all 5G products will be backed by a special chip by the end of 2020. According to some industry experts, Broadcom will, along with other chip manufacturers, expand Nokia Its ReefShark platform, used in AirScale radio products while reducing power and energy consumption but at the same time providing capacity and enhancing performance.
Sandro Tavares, head of cellular network marketing at Nokia, told news agency sthat the market has developed rapidly and that the company needs to accelerate the development of new suppliers. Using only one supplier does not help Nokia launch 5G products on the market fast enough.
Tommi Uitto, head of cellular networks at Nokia, revealed that Broadcom’s ability will allow Finns to deliver high performance. Due to cost and supply chain challenges, Nokia is being pushed to use Broadcom’s ASIC technology instead of FPGA, even if it’s more expensive.
Nokia currently provides 5G network connectivity services to many markets around the world, including 5G networks for telecom companies in the USA.
