Nokia, Marvell to enhance silicon technology for 5G

Nokia and Marvell are combining their respective differentiated wireless technology and multi-core Arm processor platforms to expand Nokia’s range of ReefShark chipsets.

The companies are working to develop 5G multi-radio access technology silicon systems-on-chips and infrastructure processors which aim to reduce Nokia’s AirScale radio access solution’s size and power consumption while boosting capacity and overall performance, according to Nokia.

“As service providers continue to evolve their 5G plans and support growing traffic and new vertical services, the infrastructure and components must evolve rapidly. Adopting the latest advancements in silicon technology is a critical step to better serve our customers’ needs,” said Nokia President of Mobile Networks Tommi Uitto.

“Our platform of semiconductor solutions for data infrastructure in combination with Nokia’s technology and market leadership will enable wireless networks of the future to deliver on the promise of 5G and open a world of new business opportunities,” Marvell CEO and President Matt Murphy added.

Marvell’s multi-core Arm processor technology provides the “programmability and performance that represent a significant benefit for Nokia’s ReefShark chipsets”, Nokia said in a press release.

The companies’ partnership is expected to continue as they address the needs of 5G NR, 5G NSA, 5G SA and other evolving standards.
