Microsoft, now the owner of what used to be Nokia’s handset operation, has selected Nordic software developer Opera to make the opera Mini web browser the default across the company’s feature phone and Asha portfolio.
The Finnish operation of Scandinavian operator TeliaSonera has agreed a deal with local Finnish carrier DNA that will see the two share network resources and spectrum in the sparsely populated Northern and Eastern regions of Finland.
Nokia, or what’s left of it, looks to have suffered another blow as the head of its location based services division, Here, quits to focus on his own projects. Nokia’s Here unit was born out of the company’s $8.1bn acquisition of Navteq and was retained as a key pillar of Nokia following the purchase of its handset division by Microsoft last year.
Vodafone Hutchison Australia has tapped up Ericsson for a network overhaul that will see the operator capable of delivering VoLTE services as it seeks to optimise its network capabilities through virtualization.
The CTO and CIO of UK LTE pioneer EE talks to Telecoms.com about his experiences of launching the technology, how it has given EE greater leverage in the wider ecosystem, and why CTO and CIO functions belong together.
Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) is set to become one of the defining trends of the era in the mobile network. Spanish incumbent Telefónica is the first operator to lay out its approach to NFV and its plans are both detailed and aggressive. Mike Hibberd met with Global CTO Enrique Blanco ahead of Telefónica’s NFV announcement, to learn of the changes in store.
