Nokia is to open a new research and development centre in Portugal that will focus on technology to support 5G mobile networks in the country and lay the future foundations for 6G. The company expects to create 100 jobs in the next two years.
“The new centre will attract skilled talent and will focus on software development for key components of 5G and future 6G mobile networks, from analysis, specification and development to the testing phase,” explains the technology company in a statement sent to newsrooms this Monday.
This infrastructure will be at Nokia’s campus in Amadora and will gather professionals from several areas, including “software engineers, technical and product managers, who will work with teams from all over the world”. According to the company, this centre will create 100 jobs in the next two years.
This new centre “demonstrates Nokia’s continued investment in the future of mobile communications to connect people, companies and industries,” states Tommi Uitto, president of Nokia’s mobile networks area, quoted in a statement.
Sérgio Catalão, general director of Nokia Portugal, also quoted in a communiqué, said that this new centre “proves the continuity and solidity of Nokia’s operation” in Portugal “reinforced once again by the collaboration with the Portuguese government” and reinforces the commitment with the digital transition in the country.
