Nokia Amplifies Technological Leadership in Singapore


Nokia recently showcased its refreshed company and technology strategy during the ‘Amplify Singapore’ event. This move reinforces its unwavering dedication to bolstering Singapore’s digital transformation and economic advancement. The updated strategy will seek to position Nokia at the forefront of nationwide innovation.  It will pioneer next-generation network solutions and B2B technology innovations that will enable Singaporean enterprises and communication service providers (CSPs) to unlock their digital potential and maximise opportunities for digitalisation.

Nokia began the event with opening remarks from Ngiam Ming Kin, Head at Nokia Singapore, who unveiled the company’s refresh brand strategy. He also gave an update on Nokia’s presence in Singapore. This was followed by a presentation from Terence McCabe, Chief Technology Officer at Nokia Asia Pacific and Japan, who highlighted Nokia’s technology leadership and innovations.

During the event, Nokia also provided an overview of the current 5G landscape in Singapore and outlined how it will support the nation towards 6G through various case studies. The company also showcased how its innovative solutions can play a pivotal role in supporting Singapore’s Digital Connectivity Blueprint and other key Smart Nation initiatives by enabling the digitalisation of industries through mission-critical solutions to enterprise customers here.

This was done through a series of demonstrations where Nokia presented some of its latest innovations, products and technology across its portfolio of enterprise, mobile networks, cloud and network services and network infrastructure technologies. Specially curated from the company’s participation at this year’s Mobile World Congress 2023, these demonstrations showcased how Nokia is poised to shape the future of Singapore’s industries and drive socio-economic growth by helping Singaporean CSPs and enterprises throughout their 5G and digital transformation journey.

The innovations that were showcased during the event include:

MX Industrial Edge

The Nokia MX Industrial Edge is a future-ready on-premise edge solution that can accelerate the digital transformation of operational technology (OT). It combines the agility and simplicity of an edge-as-a-service model with a high-performance, resilient and secure edge architecture designed to meet the mission-critical needs of asset-intensive industrial environments.

Nokia MX Industrial Edge unlocks business-critical use cases for enterprises, like real-time monitoring of video feeds and alerts and advanced video analytics solutions for mission-critical applications such as quality assurance or safety.

Nokia’s solutions scale from the network edge and across long-haul/core and subsea links, while simplifying network operations to build smarter, more automated networks that streamline service delivery and lower network total cost of ownership (TCO).

Nokia’s network automation solutions help CSPs, webscale companies and enterprises grow revenues, accelerate service deployment and build more programmable, responsive, efficient and reliable IP and optical networks.

Nokia’s Innovation Leadership Driven by Its Own Chipset Development

Nokia’s ReefShark chipsets enhance the company’s already comprehensive 5G end-to-end network portfolio, increasing the intelligence and performance of massive MIMO antennas and AirScale System Modules. Developed in-house and leveraging the company’s extensive experience in silicon design, as well as the company’s expertise in antenna development for mobile devices and Nokia Bell Labs innovation in Artificial Intelligence (AI) to realise high-performance and efficient network solutions.

Nokia’s PSE-6s enabled platforms are designed to help network operators ensure their optical transport networks can scale to address exponentially increasing capacity demand, efficiently deliver ultra-high-speed services including 400GE and 800GE, while also driving down network power consumption

Nokia’s Quillion chipset supports GPON, XGS-PON, NG-PON2 and Multi-PON Modules (e.g., GPON+XGS-PON) with industry-leading port density and fully non-blocking throughput capability.  While delivering up to 50% power savings, enhancing competitive features and offer innovations and differentiation in a timely manner Nokia made a strategic decision to leverage its proven high-performance network processing ASIC design capabilities and develop Quillion.

Nokia’s FP5 network processing silicon delivers a generational leap in IP network capacity and power efficiency while introducing new capabilities for protecting network traffic from security threats FP5 is the industry’s first high performance routing silicon delivering integrated line rate encryption for L2, L2.5 and L3 network services at speeds up to 1.6 Tb/s. FP5 sets a new benchmark for sustainability in IP routing with a 75% reduction in power consumption over previous generations.

Super Charging the Network through NPO

Nokia’s best-in-class digitalised portfolio Network Planning and Optimisation (NPO) that enables sustainable business growth for mobile networks. It enhances customers’ performance by delivering innovative portfolio, tool and processes.

Nokia’s Automation and Digitalisation portfolio positions network performance at its centre. It helps drive portfolio evolution to support new technology adoption, RAN disaggregation with the onset of O-RAN and vRAN. It brings out environmental sustainability through the design of Mobile Networks and the delivery of NPO services.

 “We remain dedicated to Singapore’s digital transformation efforts and strengthening the city’s digital infrastructure in line with the recently announced Digital Connectivity Blueprint. With our renewed brand strategy, we look forward to driving technological advancements not only in 5G but also playing an active role in shaping the future of technology,” said Kin. “We look forward to supporting our customers and partners to continue unlocking the remarkable potential of their networks and creating a transformative presence for Singapore’s future.”
