Cells Vendor by IHS

for Small Cell Equipment report, positioning Nokia furthest for
"completeness of vision"

survey of operators

24 October 2016

Espoo, Finland - Nokia has been recognized as a leader in small cells
technology in two key industry analyst reports. Gartner, Inc. has recognized
Nokia in the 'Leaders' quadrant of its 2016Magic Quadrant for Small Cell
Equipment
report, and in an independent survey of 21 operators conducted by IHS
- representing the largest global service providers by revenue - Nokia has
been named the number one small cells vendor.

Gartner's Magic Quadrant* evaluates small cell vendors on an annual basis. Of
the 16 vendors evaluated in 2016, Gartner recognized Nokia as a Leader and
positioned the company the furthest for "completeness of vision", which
assesses a vendor's product and market strategies, and innovation, among
other categories. Nokia believes that the report highlights the strengths in
its portfolio of high-performance solutions and its capabilities to support
Unlicensed LTE, Wi-Fi®and Mobile Edge Computing.

In the IHS survey** 95 percent of the operators questioned named Nokia as the
"top small cell equipment manufacturer", with all respondents citing Nokia as
the small cells vendor most familiar to them. The report also found that
Nokia has the largest installed base of small cells, with many of those
operators surveyed stating they were evaluating Nokia "for equipment to be
added to their networks by July 2017". Sixty percent of respondents rated
Nokia as the leader in seven out of the eight buying criteria evaluated.

Nokia believes these reports underline the importance of itssmall
cellsandHetNet services, which include mini-macro, micro, pico and femto
solutions for licensed and unlicensed spectrum, help operators evolve toward
ultra-dense networks and 5G at a pace that stays ahead of customer demand.

Nokia has more than 220 customers for its small cells solutions around the
globe, including most major operators. The Nokia small cell portfolio is
deployed in a range of scenarios within multi-vendor and Nokia macro level
networks, including extending coverage in cities and rural locations and
providing capacity to meet demands in high-traffic hotspots, mass events, and
inside public and private enterprise buildings. Nokia continuously invests in
product innovation to help operators with coverage and capacity
densification, such as the award winningFlexi Zone Multiband Indoor and
Outdoor BTSfamily.

Stéphane Téral, Senior Research Director IHS, said
: "Nokia is perceived as the top small cell manufacturer and is the most
installed small cell vendor. The newly expanded company has now been
propelled into the small cell driver's seat with a nice lead over its
competitors."

Mark Atkinson, Head of the Small Cell and WiFi Solutions Business Line at
Nokia, said:
"The connectivity demands of people and machines will continue to grow -
particularly in high traffic megacities. Nokia is constantly innovating with
its small cells and HetNet services portfolio to allow operators to
efficiently deliver revenue-generating solutions for coverage and capacity.
Nokia is extremely proud to be recognized in these reports and we feel they
are a clear reflection of our leading market position."
