Nokia’s History in Cybersecurity a Competitive Benefit in 5G Standards Device Market

By IQT News posted 06 Jun 2019

(NewsYahoo.com) Nokia is actively involved in conversations about developing the official standards for 5G, which are expected to be completed by 2020. Now that Washington has Huawei in its cross hairs, the small European companies see an opportunity. Nokia CEO Rajeev Suri in the past has boosted Nokia’s more secure products and hinted Huawei’s failure would be Nokia’s ultimate gain.
The Finnish telecom company is also one of the few in the telecom industry to have signed onto the Cybersecurity Tech Accord, a private sector pledge to promote the safety of customers online first and foremost. In 2013, news broke that Nokia would be working with the University of Bristol to try to develop quantum cryptography for mobile phones to further protect communications, though it is unclear how far those efforts have gone, as quantum computing science remains a nascent field.
