Nokia Corporation was founded in 1865 in a paper mill. It has enjoyed success in many industries over the years, including cable, paper products, and tires.

In the 1990s, Nokia began to shift its primary focus from telecommunications to telecommunications. Nokia equipment was used to make the first GSM call in 1991. They became the most-selling mobile phone brand worldwide in 1998 thanks to their rapid success in mobile phones.

Nokia launched the first camera phone in 2003. Nokia and Microsoft entered into strategic partnerships in 2011 to combat the growing competition from iOS, and Android operating systems. Nokia’s mobile and devices division was sold to Microsoft in 2014.

After the 2013 acquisition of joint-venture partner Siemens, Nokia Networks was created. This laid the foundation for Nokia’s transformation into a network hardware provider and software provider. Nokia’s 2015 acquisition of Alcatel-Lucent, a Franco-American telecoms equipment provider, greatly expanded its customer base and portfolio. Nokia has been positioned to become a global leader in technology in the communications sector through additional acquisitions.

Through a licensing agreement, Nokia was able to re-enter the mobile handset market in 2016.
