5G standards leadership

Nokia is one of the most active contributors and drivers of key features in 5G standardization organizations. For example, our experts chair some of the most important groups within the 3GPP.

Beyond 3GPP, Nokia holds key positions in groups relevant for 5G standardization that include Chair of the Board of the 5G Industry Association (5G-IA) and the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) Board.

What’s more, Nokia shapes the emerging 5G ecosystem with creation of several relevant bodies. In 2016, Nokia founded the 5G Automotive Association (5GAA) and the CBRS Alliance. In 2018, Nokia has created the 5G Alliance for Connected Industries and Automation (5G-ACIA) to gather relevant inputs from other industries.
