Empowering an intelligent, sustainable and connected world
For more than a century, our technologies have transformed every sector of society, helping to create positive change. We remain committed to leading this journey. Building on our founder’s core belief of making communication available for all, we have been the driving force behind some of the most powerful technologies known to mankind. Our industry is one of the few that touches almost everyone, everywhere on a daily basis, and by 2020, 90% of the world’s population will be covered by mobile broadband networks. We hold more than 49,000 patented innovations that have transformed lives, industries and society as a whole.
Our technologies together with insights into how they can solve business needs and real-life problems create transformative change in society. By developing and delivering new communication technologies that are easy to adopt, use and scale, we enable an eco-system of players to innovate on a cost-efficient platform. These innovations are catalyzing new ways for people and companies to connect and prosper.
We empower our customers to connect people and transform industries, as well as address some of the most pressing challenges of our time like climate change, and in doing so create a more sustainable world.
