    I'm on the nightrain
    Bottoms up
    I'm on the nightrain
    Fill my cup
    I'm on the nightrain
    Ready to crash and burn
    I never learn
    I'm on the nightrain
    I love that stuff
    I'm on the nightrain
    I can never get enough
    I'm on the nightrain
    Never to return - no

  • Nokia Networks today hosted the India Innovation Day 2015 and showcased some of its futuristic and cutting edge global technologies in the mobile broadband segment. The technologies showcased are aimed at empowering operators in their journey of evolution in order to effectively manage and monetize the surging mobile broadband growth. Nokia’sreal time live demos highlighted company’s innovations inTelco Cloud (VoLTE/ VoWiFi), 5G, Security solutions, Predictive marketing, etc. The experts at the event demonstrated how solutions like Ultra Dense Networks, Telco Cloud, Big Data Analytics and Smart Location Experiences can enable operators to serve huge data demands and optimize spectrum investments. Arno Koch, Head of Business Development, Mobile Broadband, Nokia Networks & Suresh Kalyanasundaram, Senior Specialist, Technology & Innovation Research, Nokia Networks were present at the event. They talked about how Nokia is bringing in cutting edge solutions in the networks business tohelp operators meet their future challenges. At the event, Arno Koch spoke about Evolution to Ultra Dense Networks. He discussed how mobile broadband data continues to surge and keeps on doubling every year especially in megacities and the places where people are gathering. These high density areas are typically considered the seamless multi–layer technology networks carrying huge capacity and coverage enabling good quality for operators’ customers. To satisfy ever increasing data demand, operators need to evolve with flexible and scalable network architecture to modernize, re-farm and add more capacity into their macro layer and building new small cells. For doing this, an infrastructure needs to re-engineer to avoid OPEX growth while data keeps adding. Furthermore, Suresh Kalyanasundaram discussed about FutureWorks including 5G and Internet of things. FutureWorks represents concepts, innovations and technologies that demonstrate possibilities (not commitments) for our future portfolio and roadmaps. As part of it, Nokia is heavily engagedin demonstrating leadership in internal and collaborative 5G research such as 5GPPP, METIS, NYU and few others. Nokia is also collaborating with some of the top operators likeNTT docomo in Japan and SK Telecom in Korea for example. Here are some of the futuristic technologies that were demonstrated at the 2015 chapter of Nokia India Innovation Day: Telco Cloud: VoLTE/ VoWiFi With LTE getting introduced in India, and with the availability of iPhone6 which supports VoLTE, operators are moving to support Voice on LTE for their existing 2G/3G subscribers.With VoWiFi, an operator can provide operator controlled voice over WiFi networks which is especially useful to provide the indoor coverage when LTE/2G/3G is not in place. During the event, Nokia showcased live VoLTE and VoWiFi calls. 5G The focus is to explore the future of 5G wireless technology.The 5G E2E demo showcased a virtual journey into 5G anddemonstrated how the path to 5G will not be a single technology but a consistent set of technologies that supports wireless communication for mobile networks, which can be extended to support various industry verticals as well. The company also talked about the key challenges in 5G era. Security Solutions It showcased Nokia Mobile Guard which has an analytics engine that “listens” and “analyzes” the traffic for MBB – and searches for patterns that are consistent with malware behavior. With the usage of Mobile Guard, the operators will be benefitted as it will ensure efficient and clean network with 24*7 real time monitoring and automated actions in the advent of fraud by providing protection for all subscribers, independent of device type and antivirus installed or not. Predictive Services These services expand the use of big data insights to deep network element level which detects and resolves issues before they impact customers, even weeks ahead using in-house Automated Health Check & Predictive Troubleshooting engines with expert Care services. The predictive analysis by Nokia is a path breaking initiative and is a congruence of Big Data platform and Managed Services. Predictive Marketing Campaigns Predictive marketing campaigns are based on customer experience. The demo showcased the power of combining CEM on Demand with Mobile Marketing Suite for insights intocustomer experience and behavior and the outcomes measured in-real time, all shown in a user friendly interface. Partner demos Nokia sees partnering as a strategic pillar to become the world's end-to-end mobile connectivity expert. With an entrepreneurial approach, the Partner Business Unit (PBU) develops Nokia’s partner business globally by extending the Nokia partner ecosystem and by creating and enhancing alternative sales channels. - See more at:

    You and I are guessing, we just don't know yet. But we do know that Nokia's licensing revenue was up big last quarter. From what?

  • robegratz robegratz Jun 22, 2015 5:46 PM Flag

    No! 150 year old company using its brains, and existing brand name coupled with its existing IP from many years of R&D development and trying to turn it into cash. It's really simple not much to it, either it works or it doesn't.

  • robegratz robegratz Jun 22, 2015 5:41 PM Flag

    Yup, and South Korea will not make a difference anyway.

  • My guess is yes and the increase in IT revenue this past quarter may be a sign of more to come. Here is an article from Fortune:
    Nokia used to be the world’s top phone-maker. Now the company wants to reclaim some of its faded glory.

    Nokia ( [“NOK” ) CEO Rajeev Suri recently told the German business monthly Manager Magazin that the company plans to design mobile phones once again. Next year, mobile phone manufacturers will be able to license the brand.

    “We will look for suitable partners,” Suri told the magazine.

    The Finnish company had previously been barred from re-entering the market. In 2013, when Microsoft ( MSFT 0.28% ) agreed to buy its phone business for more than $7 billion, it stipulated that Nokia would have to stay out until 2016. The tech giant — which hoped compete with rivals such as Apple and its iPhone, and Samsung and its Galaxy — instead picked up a loss-making business that claimed a measly 3% market share, according to Reuters. Its devices barely made a dent in the consumer world.

    Clarifying the business’ reentry, Suri said: “Microsoft makes mobile phones. We would simply design them and then make the brand name available to license.”

    Last week Microsoft manager Stephen Elop, who had left to lead Nokia before rejoining to steer Microsoft’s mobile handset business after its acquisition, left again. The move signaled to industry watchers that Microsoft is refocusing from hardware to software.

    In fact, Nokia already has a mobile device on the market: the N1 Android tablet, which it makes in partnership with Taiwanese manufacturer Foxconn. Given that relationship, some speculate that Nokia’s new phones could be Android-based and assembled with the help of that company.

    Earlier this year, Nokia bought the French-American networking company Alcatel-Lucent for $17 billion to help gain a foothold in the U.S. It is also in the midst of looking to sell HERE, its maps business. Though companies ranging from the car service Uber to German automaker BMW have demonstrated interest in the business, Suri has not tipped his hand as to who may win the deal.

    “Anybody who can improve the business in the long run is a good buyer,” he said.

    Good NOKIA entry point?

    Harley hasn't been around for a long time. I hope he is well.

    Yeah Tuesday should be interesting day to say the least. The IT department can say what ever they want but the final decision will be made by the judge. I wonder if this past statement from Nokia had anything to do with the urgent hearing:
    "We are involved in the process of standardisation of 5G network and we will decide closer to the date from which country and plant we should produce those products. Chennai plant is also an option," Nokia Networks' Vice-President of Manufacturing Operations Karl Kirschenhofer told reporters here.

    Ah ha. You mean Harley don't you? Last time you were around here you and Harley were having conversations about Crocs. Welcome back.

  • robegratz robegratz May 21, 2015 9:12 PM Flag

    They will sell but not all of it is my guess. Because I just can't picture anyone other than Google, Apple, Microsoft or Samsung that can take HERE completely and run with it. All others will need assistance from Nokia going forward, just my opinion. I think Nokia ends with a small stake in HERE but the heavy lifting will be done by new buyers.

  • robegratz robegratz May 21, 2015 9:04 PM Flag

    That depends on when you bought. I bought low and now it's much higher. Too bad for you if you owned it for the past 10 years, no wonder you are so bitter. My glass is full!

  • robegratz robegratz May 21, 2015 8:18 PM Flag

    "why buy the whole cow when you can get the milk for cheap"
    You and many others said the exact same thing about Nokia's phone business, and how did that end up? Everyone thinks Nokia makes bad decisions but when the smoke clears, Nokia ends up on top.

    5G: Nokia Networks

    To me this seems more of a threat to India and the India IT Department than informing us the investors where they will be producing 5G. It seems Nokia is willing to put the past problems with India Tax Department behind them and continue to do business with them if India rights its wrongs with Nokia. I like Nokia's position with maybe we will build 5G in India. Why maybe? What's the uncertainty? If tax issues don't go Nokia's way Nokia will probably be gone with the wind, and don't give a damn were they end up.

    NOkia IP/Tech Division to be axed

    Well said. I'm also thinking since Nokia is truly out of the mobile phone business, so no need to create any new mobile technologies. Focus on getting paid for all existing mobile technologies and focus on networks technologies and like you said and others Nokia can and will utilize Alcatel minds in that department. No worries for me at all with that news and it seems to make sense if Nokia is truly out of mobile business.

    My Verizon mobile phone service is awful this year. It was very good this time last year but now it flat out stinks. I'm hearing same from other Verizon customers in my area. My contact is up and for the first time in a long time I'm seriously considering switching to AT&T. Both phone and internet service is very bad. What's happening to Verizon?
