Nokia and BT Group sign agreement to drive new 5G monetization opportunities through telco APIs
- Memorandum of understanding covers the utilization of Nokia’s Network as Code platform and developer portal with BT Group’s cloud-native network
11 December 2023
Espoo, Finland – Nokia and BT Group today announced an agreement to develop new 5G network monetization opportunities through Nokia’s Network as Code platform with developer portal (platform) and BT Group’s cloud-native network.
BT Group, which operates EE – the UK’s best mobile network1 – is, like other communications service providers, looking to Nokia’s growing ecosystem of developer partners to gain access to simplified network capabilities in the form of software code that can be built into applications for enterprise, industrial, and consumer use cases.
The Nokia platform helps operators monetize their 5G network assets beyond pure connectivity. It provides application developers with tools such as Software Development Kits (SDK) and open Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), which give developers access to deep network functionality and data that enables them to build new use cases for their customers.
Through their agreement, Nokia and BT Group will make those tools available to developers so they can utilize BT Group’s network features, write new use cases, and create new value for EE customers.
Nokia has announced a similar agreement with DISH Wireless.
The platform was launched in September following many months of close collaboration with developers and operators. It is based on a revenue share model between developers, operators, and Nokia as the platform provider.
Shkumbin Hamiti, Head of Network Monetization Platform, Cloud and Network Services, at Nokia, said: "I am very pleased that Nokia and BT Group are strengthening our long-standing partnership through Nokia’s Network as Code platform. Through its strong API Developer portal work, BT Group has been an important driver of helping the industry understand the multiple benefits of opening telecom networks to application developers. This agreement will enhance our joint work with developers and create new opportunities for extracting value from BT Group’s network assets.”
Reza Rahnama, Managing Director, Mobile Networks at BT Group, said: “5G-era networks are fundamentally software-based and rich in capabilities – such as improving network quality on demand – that can really make a difference to enterprises and consumers in ways that were not possible years ago. We are excited to work with Nokia and its new platform to help us better tap into those capabilities that we have been aggressively building into our 5G network.”

Aktia Bank Plc Stock Exchange Release February 28th 2024 at 5.15 p.m. Aktia Bank Plc updates dividend policy Aktia’s goal is to provide a competitive dividend yield to its shareholders.

Aktia intends to pay out a dividend of approximately 60 per cent of the profit for the reporting period to its shareholders. Aktia’s goal is to achieve profitable growth in all business areas.

Aktia Bank Abp uppdaterar sin utdelningspolitik28.2.2024 16:15:00 CET | Pressemelding
Aktia Bank Abp Börsmeddelande 28.2.2024 kl. 17.15 Aktia Bank Abp uppdaterar sin utdelningspolitik Aktias mål är att erbjuda en konkurrenskraftig dividendavkastning åt sina ägare. Den utbetalda dividendens belopp är beroende av koncernens resultatutveckling samt tillväxt- och investeringsbehov. Därtill vill Aktia säkerställa en tillräcklig kapitaltäckning även i omväxlande marknadsförhållanden. Aktia strävar efter att dela ut cirka 60 procent av räkenskapsperiodens vinst till aktieägarna. Aktia har som sin målsättning att växa lönsamt inom samtliga affärsområden. Kapitalstrukturen bör stöda så väl denna tillväxt som en bibehållen god nivå på kapitaltäckningen. För åren 2021 och 2022 har Aktia delat ut 60 procent av resultatet som dividend till sina aktieägare. För år 2023 föreslår styrelsen åt bolagsstämman en utdelning om 0,70 euro per aktie, vilket motsvarar 60 procent av räkenskapsårets resultat. Tidigare utdelningspolitik: Aktias målsättning är en dividendutbetalning om 60-80 procen
Sanoma participates in joint claim of European media companies against Google in relation to anticompetitive practices in ad tech28.2.2024 16:05:00 CET | Press release
Sanoma Corporation, Press Release, 28 February 2024 at 17:05 EET Sanoma participates in joint claim of European media companies against Google in relation to anticompetitive practices in ad tech Sanoma Media Finland, together with more than 30 European media groups, have initiated a damages claim against Google in relation to its anticompetitive practices in “ad tech”, the various technologies behind online advertising. According to the claim by the media companies, Google has abused its dominant position in ad tech by favouring its own tools over those of its rivals. With healthy competition on the market, the media companies would have paid lower fees for ad tech services and received significantly higher revenues from advertising. Google has faced similar legal proceedings in the UK and U.S. In 2021, the French competition authority found comparable practices by Google as an abuse of its dominant market position. Google was issued a penalty of EUR 220 million. The claim was filed in
