Nokia (NOK) Secures Key Deals to Boost 5G Market Foothold

The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence selected Nokia as the technology provider and collaborator for the 5G Cybersecurity Project. The federal agency aims to leverage the technology prowess of the company for a seamless transition from 4G to 5G networks. Deploying its industry-leading software, 5G RAN and IP-Backhaul solutions for this project, Nokia will partner with a cross-section of government and industry collaborators on board to help develop a reference design and build use cases on standards-based solutions.

In particular, the project intends to identify certain 5G use cases to showcase the efficacy of the components of 5G architecture against security threats. It aims to demonstrate how potential risks are mitigated through standardized 5G security features that also abide by the related compliance requirements. The enhanced cybersecurity capabilities on display are likely to allay deep-rooted fears and mistrust within business enterprises triggered by malicious cyber threats from data hackers. The project is part of the U.S. government initiative to better encrypt communications to thwart snooping attempts and build robust communication networks through anti-spying mechanism tools.
