Standards-essential IPR leadership
One of the industry’s broadest and strongest portfolios, with over 2,400 patent families declared essential to cellular standards, including more than 1,500 families for 5G and more to follow.
In 2018 we filed patent applications on more than 1,300 new inventions, most of them based on the pioneering work from Nokia businesses and Nokia Bell Labs.
Unique IPR leadership
Through sustained investment in R&D, Nokia has built one of the broadest and strongest patent portfolios in the industry. This distinction was built from more than €126 billion invested in R&D over the past two decades with the combined strengths of Nokia, Nokia Siemens Networks, and Alcatel-Lucent.
