Nokia Returns To Technology “Race Track”



Nokia 5G



After a year under the direction of CEO Pekka Lundmark, Nokia is gradually returning firmly in the race to deploy 5G globally.

Once seen as a laggard in the 5G race, Nokia has recently regained its footing in deploying the technology,

overtaking Ericsson.

Before that, they bet on the wrong chip and lost a billion dollar contract with Verizon to Samsung.

According to Reuters, after the old Nokia brand sold the mobile business, Nokia Oyj today focuses on telecommunications and related copyrights.

Nokia and Ericsson are the beneficiaries when many carriers ignore Huawei when deploying 5G, due to the impact of the US-China trade war.

Earlier in February, Nokia CEO Pekka Lundmark warned of a “challenging” transition year with “favorable winds”.

That warning has gradually come true as the company has had positive results in both recent quarters, giving Nokia hope for a successful year.

“Powerful changes and significantly improved performance under Mr. Pekka’s leadership.

Returning to the 5G race and focusing on key products helps reposition the business,”

said PP Foresight analyst Paolo Pescatore.

Mr. Pekka Lundmark became the CEO of Nokia in August 2020.

After coming to power, he laid off thousands of employees and built relationships with new partners.

All this work towards the goal of leading in the race to deploy the global 5G network.

Nokia has also invested significantly in developing its Reefshark chip, cutting the cost of 5G equipment and being self-sufficient in production.

Mr. Pekka’s reforms have resulted in Nokia’s growing position.

European governments have long tightened their grip on the role Chinese companies play in 5G networks, with the US accusing China of using Huawei as a spy.

Previously, Ericsson had an advantage over Nokia in the Chinese market.

However, the company recently reached an agreement with China Mobile that gives the company

a 4% market share in a $6 billion contract to deploy 5G networks.

Ericsson has had trouble signing contracts with Chinese partners, as the Swedish government banned equipment from the country in 2020.

“The key to Nokia’s return is that they made the right moves in the 5G race.

The fact that Nokia is slowly coming back is a huge mark of CEO Pekka and he is doing a good job,”

said Morningstar analyst Mark Cash.

Nokia’s shares are up about 30% over the past year, while Ericsson’s figure is just 2% over the same period.

Currently, Nokia can solve 5G network problems with many countries in Europe as they have tightened security,

restricting companies from China.

However, some analysts warn that the company’s profits could be affected by chip shortages, or the US-China political conflict.

Ronaldo Asks Man Utd board to Replace Solskjaer with Zidane

According to El Chiringuito, Cristiano Ronaldo has advised Manchester United’s board to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with Zinedine Zidane.

Following a 4-2 loss to Leicester City on Saturday, Solskjaer has been under greater scrutiny.

The Red Devils have lost three matches in the Premier League.

United’s leadership is said to have given Solskjaer their full support, believing the 48-year-old would enhance the team’s performance.

Senior officials at Old Trafford, on the other hand, are weighing their alternatives and have identified him as a viable contender, based on Ronaldo’s proposal.

According to the report, Zidane has met with United’s management, but he is interested in succeeding Didier Deschamps as France’s new head coach.

It’s also been reported that Zidane was approached by both PSG and Newcastle United, but the former Real Madrid manager declined both offers.
