Nokia Hungary turns 20 in Budapest/Hungary

Nokia Hungary is cutting-edge technology of the future developed in Budapest

 Press release
Hungarian R&D center of the Finnish company is world-leading in the field of artificial intelligence, intelligent network and 5G.

Nokia founded its Hungarian subsidiary 20 years ago. To celebrate the company is showcasing its 25 most important innovations developed in Hungary during a 3-day event. The company plays a major role in the Hungarian economy, employing more than 2,200 people Nokia’s Hungary-based R&D activity encompasses everything from artificial intelligence solutions and 5G networks gain to more traditional mobile switching centers.

A backpack which can be turned into a mobile network in emergency situations, a mobile application allowing communication between cars by sharing information real-time, Rubik’s Cube in augmented reality – just some of the visionary technological innovations that are being developed by Hungarian professionals at Nokia in Budapest. The Finnish tech giant founded its Hungarian technology center 20 years ago, and on this occasion the company showcases its 25 most important innovations developed in the country during a 3-day event.

Nokia has been present in Hungary since 1998. Nokia Skypark – the headquarters of the company located in Budapest – is home to one of the biggest information technology and telecommunication R&D centers in the country. Nokia plays a major role in the country’s economy and employs more than 2,200 people. Nokia’s Hungary-based R&D activity encompasses the company’s traditional telecommunication developments, within the frameworks of which artificial intelligence solutions and automation of fifth generation networks gain an increasing ground besides mobile switching centers. The local research center of Nokia Bell Labs performs fundamental research in the field of artificial intelligence and cognitive science, among other areas.

World-class developments by Hungarian professionals … On the occasion of the twentieth anniversary of Nokia’s presence in Hungary, the company organized a 3-day event between 8-10 October called Nokia Future X Days. With the event, Nokia opened its doors to its domestic and international ecosystem partners, industrial professionals and Hungarian university students from the field of engineering and information technology. Within the framework of the event, a high-level conference is organized, with an adjacent exhibition showcasing the 25 most important Nokia innovations developed in Hungary through live demonstrations.

Backpack turned into a cell tower, cars communicating, Rubik’s Cube in augmented reality … One of the most spectacular developments is a backpack-sized mobile network, called Nokia Ultra Compact Network. The small-sized, robust and easily transportable mobile network was specially designed for catastrophe situations, enabling participants of the rescue mission to create a 4G network in the affected area within minutes.

Within CUIC (Center for University-Industry Cooperation), research and development activity conducted together with Budapest University of Technology and Economics resulted in a conceptual demo showing the transition between the real and virtual world, demonstrating the power and almost limitless possibilities of 5G technology. Digitizing the physical world real-time, magical AR (augmented reality) glasses – connected with a few real and a virtual Rubik’s Cubes – showed how the real and the digital world will be merged in the near future. The Cube can be solved with the help of the AR glasses where users can see the movements on the real Cube in real-time. This is a significant innovation since digitizing the Cube requires huge data transmission, made possible by 5G and Nokia’s cloud-based solutions. Furthermore, the Car2X mobile application, which allows users to follow the movements of other vehicles via sensors built into drivers’ phones or smart license plates, also has been developed in Budapest. Cars communicating with each other can help drivers by sharing information real time – even in a traffic situation beyond direct visibility. By sharing relevant information that supports decision-making, transportation can be made safer while the driver experience is improved, and it can also have an impact in the field of vehicle insurance.

“Hungarian professionals at Nokia Bell Labs and Nokia Technology Center perform world-leading research and development activity in several fields of mobile technology. Future X Days provided an excellent opportunity to showcase the 25 most important technological innovations developed in Hungary. Participants could get insight into solutions based on artificial intelligence, 5G cognitive networks, V2X – communication solutions between vehicles and other devices – human and technology interfaces, DevOps development management platform, Open API, Edge cloud and other, cutting-edge technology solutions,”  said Gergely Mihálka, member of Nokia’s global Executive Management.

Besides research and development, Budapest is home to Nokia employees working in international finance, global procurement, human resources, talent acquisition and marketing.

About Nokia … We create the technology to connect the world. Powered by the research and innovation of Nokia Bell Labs, we serve communications service providers, governments, large enterprises and consumers, with the industry’s most complete, end-to-end portfolio of products, services and licensing.
