Nokia and Marvell to develop 5G multi-RAT silicon

Nokia and Marvell announced their partnership to develop 5G multi-RAT (Radio Access Technology) silicon innovations.
Nokia 5G base stationNokia and Marvell will develop custom silicon and infrastructure processors to expand the range of Nokia ReefShark chipsets available for 5G solutions.

The two companies are developing a new generation of custom system-on-chip (SoC) and infrastructure processors combining Nokia’s wireless technology with Marvell’s multi-core Arm processor platforms.

Nokia will deploy these chipsets in Nokia AirScale radio access solution, as part of Nokia’s 5G “Powered by ReefShark” portfolio. By deploying ReefShark, these solutions will benefit from a reduction in size and power consumption, while also seeing a boost to capacity and overall performance.
