Nokia creates technology that helps the world act together. As a trusted partner for critical networks, we are committed to innovation and technology leadership across mobile, fixed and cloud networks. We create value with intellectual property and long-term research, led by the award-winning Nokia Bell Labs. Adhering to the highest standards of integrity and security, we help build the capabilities needed for a more productive, sustainable and inclusive world.
In France, Nokia has a strong technological base that relies on both cutting-edge Research and Development teams and very strong links with the French digital ecosystem. Our activities are spread over two major sites in Lannion (Côtes d’Armor) and Paris-Saclay (Nozay – Essonne). These sites play a leading role in the design and marketing of the group’s innovations in the field of 5G, radio transport, cyber security and the Internet of Things.
Alcatel-Lucent International (ALUI) is Nokia’s legal entity in France (excluding submarine cable (ASN) activities), it also hosts the French teams of Nokia Bell Labs and Nokia Standards.
Nokia Bell Labs is the world-renowned industrial research arm of Nokia. Over its more than 90-year history, Bell Labs has invented many of the foundational technologies that underpin information and communications networks and all digital devices and systems. Nokia Bell Labs leads innovative research focused on the current Nokia Business Group Portfolio for both short and long-term excellence. Moreover, Nokia Bell Labs explores the fundamental and innovative research focused on new Nokia value chains as well as on opportunities beyond the current Nokia BG Product and Solution Portfolio including new market space, technology licensing and possible “spin out” opportunities.
Main tasks in the project
ALUI will be mainly involved in WP2 dealing with the design in D-band of functional blocks and the development of the up and down converters for the demonstrator. During the second part of the project, new architectures of D-band blocks will be study and design to improve the overall system level performances.
ALUI will also be involved in WP1 to contribute on applications, technological specifications and architectures and dissemination and exploitation results in WP7.
