Nokia ups investments in Mexico tech facility

Finnish telecom equipment supplier Nokia is increasing the volume of investments in its technology lab in the Mexican city of Guadalajara.

Nokia announced in a press release that it has upgraded its 5G testing lab located in Guadalajara, Mexico to support testing across new uses cases. The facility will have the capacity to support the testing of new 5G offerings, as well as support growing sales and supply chain operations in the region.

Nokia’s Guadalajara Lab launched and kickstarted operations in 2017. It develops and executes a vast range of tests for Nokia hardware solutions, including radiofrequency testing for 3G, 4G, and 5G networks.

The new competencies of the lab also include additional testing for product change notification, chamber thermal testing, mechanical analysis, mechanical first article inspection, mechanical testing, digital data analysis, and power supply analysis, and realistic performance monitoring.

Having enjoyed remarkable capital injections over the last five years, the lab partners closely with Nokia’s design facilities in Dallas, Texas, and Naperville, Illinois, USA.

Raúl Romero, Head of Nokia LAT North Region and Country Senior Officer for Mexico, said: “Guadalajara lab is located at a unique geographical position to provide services to both Latin America and North America. Additionally, our 5G deployments coming soon in Mexico and Latin America region will be fully supported by our own regional operations and supported as well by the free trade agreement between the U.S., Mexico, and Canada (USMCA).”
