Nokia and Alcatel-Lucent Thursday celebrated their first day of combined operations, marking the completion of Nokia’s latest transformation and the creation of a global leader in technology and services for an IP-connected world.
With the development, Nokia has gone through “a fundamental transformation,” Risto Siilasmaa, Chairman of the Nokia Board of Directors says amid the two tech giant’s merger.
“Over 99% of our more than 100 000 employees did not carry a Nokia badge just three short years ago. Our earnings, market cap and growth opportunities have multiplied. We have a powerful guiding vision of the Programmable World, an extremely capable management team and a strong ambition to innovate and lead. We move forward with excitement, confidence and an ability to continue to challenge the status quo”, the Chairman of the Nokia Board of Directors says.

Also commenting on the merger, Rajeev Suri, Nokia President and CEO, says that today’s pace of technological change, driven by the transition to 5G, the Internet of Things and the cloud, “is demanding extraordinary new capabilities from the network.”
According to him, “combining with Alcatel-Lucent comes at just the right time: we can align our product and technology roadmaps for the next generation of network technology at the outset, allowing us to take full advantage of the coming opportunities and better serve customers including communication service providers, governments, Internet players and large enterprises. Nokia has the global scale, innovation muscle and end-to-end portfolio to lead this change, and ultimately expand the human possibilities of the connected world.”
Nokia is now gearing up for Mobile World Congress 2016 in February, when it will share more about its vision of expanding the human possibilities of the connected world, and how both existing and new customers can use technology to improve people’s lives, the company says.
