Finnish network technology company Nokia has announced the launch of Nokia Federal Solutions, a new subsidiary to cater exclusively to U.S. federal government customers‘ requirements, such as Internet Protocol routing, optical networking, 5G and tactical private wireless.
The new subsidiary will be headed by General Manager Mike Loomis, who will lead a team of professionals with experience in both commercial communications technology and government client servicing, Nokia said.
According to Loomis, a 4×24 member, NFS is “a dedicated entity to provide the technology, expertise and local presence needed to help U.S. federal agencies achieve their mission goals.”
The company most recently announced its plans to acquire the Fenix Group, which provides secure tactical wireless solutions to defense customers.
It also sealed a partnership agreement to manufacture fiber-optic broadband electronics at Sanmina’s facility in Kenosha County, Wisconsin. The commitment, announced in August, supports the federal government’s $42.45 billion Broadband Equity, Access and Deployment program.
Earlier, the company opened a cybersecurity-focused testing facility in May 2022 in Dallas, Texas.
