Case Nokia – new network for remote areas

Nokia creates technology that connects people and devices across the globe. We want everyone to be able to access Nokia’s advanced network solutions, even in remote areas.

The internet will open various new opportunities in the economy of developing countries. We are a part of the Nokia Kuha project that is creating mobile networks for rural areas. With it, remote areas gain access to functional telecommunications.

Kuha is a network maintained by communities. It combines traditional Nokia network devices and modern technological solutions.

Unikie participated in the first real-life application project utilizing Nokia Kuha technology in Australia, in collaboration with Vodafone. Two base stations placed on a local farmer’s field enabled coverage of more than eight square kilometers with 4G connection. In principle, Kuha extends a traditional fixed internet connection into a mobile LTE network.

It’s great to participate in projects where you can learn new things and try out new technologies. Our stack includes React, Apollo and GraphQL, and the entire thing is run on Kubernetes on AWS. Personally, I was particularly happy to gain a deeper understanding of the different areas of DevOps.

This collaboration is a perfect example of the international projects in which Unikie participates. We combine hardware and coding expertise and continuously produce concrete and visible results that our customers can bring into production, says Seppo Kolari, Unikie’s Customer Relations Manager.
