    Nokia and Apple future

    I keep thinking about the 50,000 jobs Nokia unloaded receiving 8-10 every device Apple sells and Samsung.Both will be paying more in the future.Nokia CEO statement Rajeev Suri, feels a sense of loss, but says the old company cannot be "recreated" and the leaner new firm is financially the strongest it has been in the last five years, partly due to the sale. There is no safety zone from Nokia’s patent attack. Over the last ten years, Nokia’s patents have been cited by communication service providers and equipment makers including Intel and Cisco as well as smartphone makers, such as LG Electronics, Samsung Electronics and Apple.

    According to ‘Nokia, what is it aiming at?’ an IP-nomics report jointly published by Electronic Times Research Center (ETRC) and KwangGaeTo Lab (CEO: Gang Min-su), a company specializing in patent analysis, Nokia patents’ citation increase rate has been as high as 50% each year since 2009. In fact, the count of Nokia patent citations in 2013 exceeded 28,000.

    The companies that have most frequently cited Nokia’s patents over the last ten years are smartphone makers, such as Qualcomm, Blackberry, LG Electronics, Samsung Electronics and Apple. It is followed by communication service providers and equipment makers including Cisco, Intel, Sanofi-Aventis and AT&T.

    The increase in patent citation count, which reflects technological usability of a patent, means that Nokia’s patent influence has been expanding rapidly. The count of patent citations, a qualitative IP evaluation criterion, also holds relevance with the possibility of dispute occurrence. Therefore, most of the companies that are subject to frequent patent citations deploy mobile phone business after concluding a patent license agreement with Nokia.

    Even companies not in the field of mobile phone are not free from the risk of Nokia’s patent attack. IT and Internet service providers, such as MS, IBM and Google and electronic parts makers, such as NEC and Toshiba, cite Nokia’s patents frequently. In addition, the count of Nokia patent citations by common carriers and healthcare service providers like Verizon, Alcatel-Lucent and Abbott has increased rapidly.

    This means that once Nokia’s patent attack begins, not only mobile phone manufacturing, but also IT, Internet service and even healthcare fields are bound to be influenced directly. In particular, most Nokia’s technologies are standard patents. So, it is estimated to bring about quite a stir to a number of industries. Companies that have already concluded license agreement with Nokia also face the risk of cost increase.

    Long The New Nokia Tech changing:Nokia Networks doubles small cell capacity, drives HetNet performance #NetworksPerform
    8 September, 2014

    Flexi Zone range enhanced by double-capacity LTE/Wi-Fi picocell

    3-D geolocation brings new dimension to indoor planning services

    Espoo, Finland - A major expansion of the Nokia Networks small cell portfolio is spearheaded by new innovations - a double-capacity small cell base station Flexi Zone G2 Pico, and an indoor planning service enhanced by 3-D geolocation. The launches enable operators to cost-effectively build even higher performance HetNets in dense urban areas, sustaining high quality mobile broadband for more subscribers and higher data traffic.

    By 2020, almost 78% of mobile traffic will be handled by small cells*. Nokia Networks continues to expand its Flexi Zone solution to help operators grow the capacity of their HetNets to support more users per cell and higher performance. The first Flexi Zone G2 Pico** base station to be available will be a 3.5 GHz TD-LTE Advanced Carrier Aggregation Pico with 4x4 MIMO for advanced LTE markets. This all-in-one small cell also integrates Wi-Fi 802.11ac for additional capacity in a compact 8 liter, 8 kg unit for easy siting and installation.The new Pico solution will be based on the Nokia Flexi Zone G2 Micro/Pico base station platform that features a 4-pipe radio and twice the processing capability of the Flexi Zone Micro/Pico base station. This provides scope for other future variants in support of very high performance HetNets.

    "Experience shows consumers enthusiastically embrace mobile broadband when operators deliver excellent LTE network performance - success that can threaten operator brand reputation if capacity fails to keep up," said Ken Rehbehn, principal analyst, 451 Research Mobility Team. "High performance small cell systems give operators a critical tool to absorb growing capacity demands without compromising customer experience. Nokia's continued investment in its small cell portfolio smartly expands the range of capabilities and form factors available to operators responding to the challenge of success."

    Similar to other Flexi Zone base stations, Flexi Zone G2 Pico BTS offers full software and feature parity of Nokia Networks macro base stations and packs the same Smart Scheduler and HetNet interference management features for best-in-class performance. For example, DL Interference Shaping, introduced earlier this year, is also available on all the Flexi Zone base stations, and boosts HetNet capacity by increasing cell edge performance by up to 30%.
    Likewise, Flexi Zone G2 Pico BTS can also be used as a stand alone unit or paired with Nokia's Flexi Zone Controller*** to create large small cell clusters that act as one eNodeB. This unique architecture allows operators to scale up to ultra-dense networks for even higher capacity and reduced total cost of ownership.

    With the continuous growth in data usage, many operators are choosing this innovative high capacity small cell solution to boost performance in hot spots and hot zones. Zain KSA, a technology leader in the Saudi market, awarded Nokia a contract to deploy its Flexi Zone 4G small cells solution to boost performance in strategic locations. Vodafone Group has also selected Nokia Networks as a global supplier of its LTE and Wi-Fi outdoor small cells products, to provide additional capacity where it is needed most.

    More effective network planning and optimization is enabled by a further portfolio innovation: 3-D geolocation-based HetNet planning for in-building solutions. Nokia Networks is applying newly acquired 3-D geolocation technology to pinpoint precise locations in high-rise buildings that have high demand or are suffering poor service, such as dropped calls or slow connectivity. Extending the Nokia Services for HetNets**** portfolio, the service overcomes the limitations of conventional two-dimensional planning that cannot distinguish between the different floors of buildings with different needs, such as a corporate offices and residential spaces. This will help operators deliver the best mobile broadband experience indoors.
    Nokia Networks has demonstrated its commitment to small cell development by being the first supplier with macro parity small cells, and we're now the first to introduce small cells with LTE-Advanced Carrier Aggregation capabilties," said Randy Cox, head of Small Cell Product Management at Nokia Networks. "Operators have an ever-increasing need to provide users with the best mobile broadband experience in key indoor locations. The addition of unique 3-D geolocation technology ensures the best planning and optimization techniques for outstanding performance throughout these buildings - from the top floor boardroom to the ground floor cafeteria."

    Nokia Networks also is enhancing its small cells portfolio with the following new features, making it the industry's most complete solution and helping operators improve their HetNet performance:

    - 1.9 GHz/PCS frequency support for Nokia Flexi Lite base station.
    - New frequency variants for Flexi Zone base stations, including 1.9 GHz/PCS for Flexi Zone outdoor Micro/Pico base stations; 1.9 GHz/PCS, AWS and TD-LTE 2.3 GHz for Flexi Zone Indoor Pico base stations; and 1.8 GHz for Flexi Zone Pico-Enhanced base station with integral Wi-Fi.
    - Non Line of Sight (NLoS) microwave backhaul for Flexi Lite and Flexi Zone base stations based on Dragonwave Harmony Radio Lite enabling a fast small cell roll-out in the Sub 6 GHz band.
    - A new delivery model, part of Nokia Services for HetNets, that deploys multiple small cells using a clustered approach and standardized site work processes to reduce deployment from days to hours.

    This was from June 23,2014 June 23, 2014 10:27

    Credit Suisse raises target price on Nokia 6.69 to 7.00 euros. The recommendation is left on outperform.

    The new target price is equivalent to about 64 crowns.

    It appears from a market letter on Monday.

    "The recent news flow surrounding patents supports our thesis for Nokia's part. We expect Nokia to increase revenue in patents from 600 million in 2014 to EUR 1.4 billion in 2017," writes the bank.

    The patents account for 2.10 euros per share in the bank's valuation of Nokia.

  • Beta is a measure of a stock’s volatility in relation to the market. By definition, the market has a beta of 1.0, and individual stocks are ranked according to how much they deviate from the market. A stock that swings more than the market over time has a beta above 1.0. If a stock moves less than the market, the stock’s beta is less than 1.0. High-beta stocks are supposed to be riskier but provide a potential for higher returns; low-beta stocks pose less risk but also lower returns.

    Beta is a key component for the capital asset pricing model (CAPM), which is used to calculate cost of equity. Recall that the cost of capital represents the discount rate used to arrive at the present value of a company’s future cash flows. All things being equal, the higher a company’s beta is, the higher its cost of capital discount rate. The higher the discount rate, the lower the present value placed on the company’s future cash flows. In short, beta can impact a company’s share valuation.

    Advantages of Beta

    • To followers of CAPM, beta is a useful measure. A stock’s price variability is important to consider when assessing risk. Indeed, if you think about risk as the possibility of a stock losing its value, beta has appeal as a proxy for risk.

    • Intuitively, it makes plenty of sense. Think of an early-stage technology stock with a price that bounces up and down more than the market. It’s hard not to think that stock will be riskier than, say, a safe-haven utility industry stock with a low beta.



    • Besides, beta offers a clear, quantifiable measure, which makes it easy to work with. Sure, there are variations on beta depending on things such as the market index used and the time period measured, but broadly speaking, the notion of beta is fairly straightforward to understand. It’s a convenient measure that can be used to calculate the costs of equity used in a valuation method that discounts cash flowsMercadolibre Inc (NASDAQ:MELI) has the market capitalization of $ 5.18B, while 44.15M shares were outstanding. Beta factor, which measures the riskiness of the security, was recorded as 1.87. In the trailing twelve months, net profit margin of the company was 14.80% while gross profit margin was 72.60%.

    Nokia Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:NOK) is currently valued at $ 31.77B. The company has 3.71B shares outstanding and 12% shares of the company were owned by institutional investors. The company has 1.99 value in price to sale ratio while price to book ratio was recorded as 3.20. The company earned $ 526.60M in prior twelve months on revenue of $ 15.78B. It beta stands at 1.85.

    The Nokia (NYSE:NOK) patent portfolio leads the mobile technology industry in both quantity and quality of patents. The recent licensing agreement ordering Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) to pay Nokia a royalty fee for each iPhone sold proves the profit potential of this patent portfolio. Given that the Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) based Android operating system is essentially a copy of the Apple operating system, it is fairly certain that all "Google " based Android devices may infringe on the same Nokia patents as the iPhone and other Apple products, thus it appears only a matter of time before the royalties from these devices start to add up for Nokia. (This is according to award winning intellectual property analyst Florian Mueller, in a blog post following the Apple Nokia Settlement).

    Since Nokia holds the most patents relating to the cutting-edge 4G/LTE technology, it is very plausible to assume that these total patent royalties will come to rival those of Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT), holder of the most patents related to the traditional 2G/3G technology which allows them to receive royalties on a staggering 50% of all Android devices sold. In total, these Android based royalties alone are estimated to net Microsoft upwards of $3.2 billion per year. As technology progresses and more internet usage moves to mobile devices, it is my opinion that Nokia could garner double or triple this amount in the not so distant future.Location Based Mapping Patents Are Hidden Jewel of Nokia Patent Portfolio

    One emerging and potentially highly profitable area in which Nokia has a distinct patent advantage is indoor-mapping. This technology is vital to the expected future trends of mobile advertising which will come to directly target individual users based on their proximity to retail locations within malls and other large indoor locations. Currently, the positioning systems within mobile devices rely on traditional satellite based line-of-sight technology (GPS) which is greatly hindered when inside large enclosed structures as the needed line-of-site connection is non-existent. To provide accurate and fluid device placement while indoors, the new positioning systems rely upon radio wave signal interaction between the mobile device and strategically placed antennae, or Wi-Fi hotspots, in and around the particular structure.Nokia: World leader in mapping from the outset

    Although the Nokia foray into map-based services began in the early 2000s,it was the extremely expensive purchase of NAVTEQ, which at the time was the global leader in providing map databases and additional points of interest to its clients, to mobile devices participants, and also to Internet-based mapping providers for navigation and POI solutions, in October 2007 that put Nokia at the forefront of map-based technology. In addition, the Navteq acquisition of, "The Map Network," just months prior to the Nokia deal provided the company with the largest supplier of mapping to U.S. tourism and convention agencies, greatly increasing its possible future benefits to Nokia as a provider of unique personalized advertising within this vast collection of maps. With an acquisition cost of $8.1 billion the Navteq deal constituted the single largest acquisition in Nokia's long and storied history, making it known the world over that Nokia was serious about mapping and the possible revenue opportunities it could provide.

  • Nokia Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:NOK)’s network unit Nokia Solutions and Networks (NSN) and China Telecom have together unveiled the world’s first FDD TDD carrier aggregation that will also have an operator device chipset. China Telecom’s demonstration showed Nokia’s LTE base station achieved interoperability using Marvell’s chipset. On last trading day Nokia Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:NOK) fell -0.95% to close at $8.31. NOK is -2.12% away from its 52 week high and is moving 71.34% ahead of its 52 week low. Nokia Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:NOK) return on investment (ROI) is 2.40% while return on equity (ROE) is 23.60%.

    The rise and fall of the Nokia HERE Maps app on the iOS App Store was a strange, unfortunate story for the Finnish company. Nokia came out swinging with a well-received app, managed to beat Google to the iPhone, but then struggled to hold onto any momentum the app had after it launched as it immediately faded into obscurity. Nokia was certainly down, but it wasn’t out — new mapping apps from Nokia are coming to mobile devices soon.

    The Wall Street Journal reports that Nokia’s comeback will begin before the end of the year as the company finalizes its plans to release free map apps on iOS and Android. The main draw of the apps for many users will be their ability to function without an Internet connection, something that Apple Maps and Google Maps can’t do.

    Other than the HERE Maps from 2012, Nokia mapping business has primarily focused on corporate customers that pay to use its platform. This will be the next step to bringing consumers into the equation as well. Nokia is convinced that mobile users deserve more options for their mapping needs.“I’m convinced people are looking for alternatives,” said Mr. Fernbackan, an executive at Nokia’s Here mapping unit. “Google Maps is a good solution for many—their maps work very well—but it has looked the same and done the same for a long time.”

    The exec also admitted that Nokia’s first crack at making a mapping app, the ill-fated HERE Maps, left a lot to be desired.

    “It was a rushed product that was never thoroughly proven,” Fernback told the Journal. “Honestly, it went horribly wrong. But we’ve regrouped now

  • Nokia should expect strong user growth after HERE is licensed on Samsung's Android operating system. The beta offering allows users to access maps without an Internet connection. Map browsing, searching for locations and navigating without data is now possible. Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) (NASDAQ:GOOGL) offered offline map browsing, but with limited flexibility. It is a disadvantage for Google when users browse on their phone without an internet connection: the search giant cannot serve up ads. Users will quickly recognize Nokia's superior offline mapping services. Activities like downloading offline maps before traveling to foreign countries is easy for users. HERE Maps also offer turn-by-turn navigation.

    Nokia's partnership with Samsung is a win-win for both companies. Samsung lessens its dependence on Google because users now have an alternative to Google Maps. As Samsung develops its Tizen operating system, it will become even less reliant on Google's app offering.Making HERE Maps available is an important step toward growing the unit. When Google bought Waze, a traffic mapping app, for $1.3 billion, it had around 50 million users. At present, usage for HERE Maps depends on Windows Phone growth. Android has 66.5 percent of the global market share for smartphones, compared to 5.7 percent for the Windows platform. The mapping app will eventually be made available for all Android devices. Wider adoption for the app means Nokia will boost the value of the unit. An eventual sale is possible, but Nokia may now accelerate research and development for HERE Maps. Last quarter, HERE grew unit sales in new vehicle licenses by 22 percent. Greater awareness for HERE Maps should help the company grow sales in the automotive market. Nokia gains operating leverage with the HERE Maps app release. Revenue will grow as Nokia moves the unit's focus toward the enterprise and the consumer space.As I mentioned in past posts Nokia is collecting a lot of data with HERE :)

    Nokia wants to build the Google of human behaviour - and share it Really, really, really Big Data So Nokia is licensing its location-finding services to rival phone manufacturers in order to achieve this.we’re only at the beginning of what the technology can do. Mobile devices have maps – and in Nokia’s case, very good maps

  • While 5G may be years away from standardisation, Nokia is currently considering the possibility of building an early network in the north of Finland.

    "We are evaluating the possibility of participating in a 5G test bed in Oulu, focusing among other things on LTE evolution," Lauri Oksanen, VP of technology and research at Nokia Networks, said.

    "Although 5G research is well under way, 5G is not yet defined or standardised and will become available only in the next decade (from 2020). However, it is clear that LTE/LTE-Advanced will be part of 5G."

    According to Finnish broadcaster YLE, the plans were discussed at the innovation event Northern Glow in Oulu, a city in the north of Finland, last Friday and a team is currently evaluating the viability of the project. A formal decision will be made later in the autumn and if it gets the go ahead the building of the test network could start in early 2015, YLE said.

    "This is the very initial phase and so schedule and resources are open," Oksanen said.

    The possible 5G test bed is much needed positive news for the city of Oulu, which has been battling with the aftermath of Microsoft layoffs and the closing down of a former Nokia R&D unit in the city. The City of Oulu will participate in the network project alongside University of Oulu and the Finnish Technical Research Centre VTT .

    Initially Nokia plans to use the 5G test network to trial and develop LTE and LTE-Advanced radio access technologies."More specifically, we could use our LTE small cell products as a precursor to very dense 5G small cell networks," Oksanen said.

    "5G peak data rates will exceed 10Gbps, with user data rates greater than 100Mbps even under high load conditions or at the cell edge. The test bed is planned to start with LTE and typical LTE data rates of 150Mbps, depending on the spectrum that can be used in the network."

    Fifth generation networks are still very much in the research stage but are expected to improve wireless area capacity by 1,000 timesand reduce energy consumption by up to 90 percent. In real world use, 5G's peak data rate of 10Gbps would translate to speeds around 10 times faster than most current 4G connections.

    Booming 5G research
    Although no commercial deployment or concrete specifications for 5G are expected until around 2020, governments and companies are putting substantial R&D muscle into the development of 5G technologies.

    Among others, Huawei announced last November a $600m boost into its 5G research while Samsung, Ericsson, and Nokia are among the six mobile operators participating in a trial of 5G technologies across a range of frequencies coordinated by the Japanese carrier NTT Docomo. In June, EU and South Korea also joined forces to start a joint research group for 5G system development and standardisation.

    "The user demand for a better mobile broadband experience and the increasing machine-to-machine communication are pushing the industry to figure out how networks can be readied to meet future extreme capacity and performance demands. 5G will be the set of technical components needed to handle these requirements," Oksanen explains.

    "4G, however, will be able to address the data growth needs until the end of this decade and will form an important part of the future radio access."In further collaboration news, on Monday Nokia announced the launch of a new unit focusing on partnerships. As part of the unit, Nokia will open up some previously internal APIs to allow its partners and potentially also competitors to plug in their hardware or software modules.

    "This will encourage true cross-industry innovation in a way not seen before. Operators will also be able to easily implement their own innovations, something that closed interfaces make difficult," Oksanen said.

    "We expect that in 5G, along with the development in network function virtualisation and SDN, the networks will be much more programmable than today and our API initiative is leading the way," he concluded.
