Nokia expands 5G ReefShark chipset portfolio

Nokia and Broadcom are collaborating on the development of advanced semiconductor technologies, including new custom system-on-chip (SoC) processors.

These new SoC processors will be integrated into Nokia’s “5G Powered by ReefShark” portfolio. The collaboration will look to expand the range of Nokia ReefShark chipsets available for 5G solutions and will improve both the system performance and energy footprint of these networks.

The two companies will work to develop new custom system-on-chip (SoC) solutions, which utilize Nokia’s wireless technology and Broadcom’s knowledge of application-specific integrated circuit ASIC technologies.

The added performance brought by custom silicon solutions is seen as crucial in realising the capabilities and benefits of 5G and delivering on its requirements. While collaborating with Broadcom, Nokia continues to further expand its silicon capabilities and improve the penetration of ReefShark solutions in its AirScale radio access portfolio.

According to Nokia these new chipsets are designed to be deployed in several building blocks of its AirScale radio access solution. By deploying ReefShark-based products, operators will benefit from a reduction in size and power consumption, while also seeing a boost to capacity and overall performance with a lower total cost of ownership.

Commenting Tommi Uitto, President of Mobile Networks at Nokia, said: “This important collaboration highlights our continued commitment to developing our “5G Powered by ReefShark” chipset portfolio and ensures that our 5G solutions deliver a best-in-class performance to our customers. We are delighted to bring Broadcom’s silicon technology leadership and best-in-class ASIC capability to the table, allowing us to deliver a high performance and serve our customers’ needs as the demand for 5G services increases.”
