Nokia is planning to spend €360m on the development of digital twin technologies for 5G and 6G chip design as well as hardware and software development at its sites in Germany.

The Ulm and Nuremberg sites are key sites for Nokia in the four-year European IPCEI (Important Projects of Common European Interest) project developing digital twin technologies for 5G and 6G networks.

The project will focus on the integrated development of high-performance systems-on-chip designs, hardware and software based on a digital twin. These will be used in radio and optical products in future mobile communications systems based on the 5G-Advanced and 6G standards.

Another focus area is on the energy efficiency of the systems to support European climate targets where Nokia is cooperating with research institutes and universities. This cooperation will be strengthened by the long-term IPCEI investment and funding.

The ICPEI project aims to strengthen Europe’s competitiveness and innovative power, especially in 6G and AI, enable complex applications for the metaverse, for example, and advance digitalization. The microelectronics systems developed as part of the project will help to make networks more energy-efficient and more powerful at the same time.

“This important funding will support our efforts to advance the telecommunications industry in Germany and in Europe, helping to drive innovation and strengthen competitiveness,” said Tommi Uitto, President of Mobile Networks at Nokia.

“In particular, it will help our research into microelectronics that will power future technologies such as 6G, artificial intelligence and the metaverse as well as develop networks that are more energy-efficient and powerful. Germany is an important market for Nokia, and we look forward to working with the government to produce cutting-edge technology that is ‘Made in Germany’.”
