Finish multinational Nokia has announced the launch of its new ReefShark chipsets that are specifically designed to reduced the size, cost and power consumption of operators networks in order to meet the increased requirements of 5G technologies.

The development of the new chipset continues Nokia's trend of specialising in the technology, currently known as the second biggest mobile network gear manufacturer behind China's Huawei.

"Incorporating Nokia Bell Labs artificial intelligence (AI) innovations as well as Nokia's extensive capabilities in antenna development for mobile devices and base stations, ReefShark chipsets leverage silicon developed by Nokia in Oulu, Espoo and Tampere, Finland as well as Sunnyvale, California," Nokia said.

Nokia claims that the chipsets have a 64% reduction in power consumption, whilst also tripling capacity from 28 to 84 gigabits per second. In this sense, the ReefShark is able to operate using a lower power supply, whilst also boosting the performance of massive MIMO antennas - ideal for the incorporation of 5G.

"With ReefShark, Nokia has created a clear competitive advantage," said Henri Tervonen, Chief Technology Officer of Nokia Mobile Networks and head of R&D Foundation. "Its combination of power, intelligence and efficiency make it ideally suited to be at the heart of fast arriving 5G networks."

According to a recent report from SNS Research, 5G networks are expected to account for 40% of wireless network infrastructure spending by the end of 2025. 

As a result, in order to remain competitive, it is essential for companies to begin to incorporate 5G into their technologies and networks - something that Nokia is doing with ReefShark.
