"We were impressed by the number and quality of nominations this year – the most we have ever had – so it was a special triumph for Nokia and Telefónica O2 to be among this year’s winners. This was an outstanding project and well deserves its award. This project stood out, even though the competition was strong, and it just had to be among the winners. Well done to all involved."

In the same way that cloud computing transformed the IT industry, telco cloud dynamics are radically changing how mobile operators plan to deploy, operate and manage their networks through virtualization and software defined networking. Nokia and Juniper’s expanded partnership fits well into this evolution, strengthening the telco cloud ecosystem in the process.

"Demand for data transmission is skyrocketing, and while the millimeter wave spectrum and new technologies hold the promise of increasing consumer peak data rates by up to a thousand-fold over today’s cellphones, it is vital that corporate leaders and governments step up their timetable to commit to opening up the spectrum above 20 GHz while launching standards activities for bringing about innovation that will spawn tremendous advances in consumer products. The Brooklyn 5G Summit...
