Nokia has officially opened its new Oceania headquarters in North Sydney in the presence of Minister for Communications and the Arts, Mitch Fifield, and Nokia head of Asia Pacific and Japan, Sandeep Girotra.

Nokia says the new facility will provide a new central location for Sydney-based teams driving 5G deployments and advancing mission critical network deployments for carriers and enterprises across Australia and New Zealand.

The new headquarters will accommodate more than 600 employees, with functions at the office including network design, engineering, delivery and operations, software integration, services, field force, consulting, sales, and corporate roles.

The new headquarters brings together teams from two separate locations in Pyrmont and Rhodes, offices pre-dating the 2016 merger of Nokia and Alcatel-Lucent.

The opening on Thursday was formalised by Senator Fifield and Girotra.

“We’re establishing a new headquarters for Oceania at a crucial time for both the region and the telecommunications industry. We’re on the cusp of the 5G era, and expect Australia and New Zealand to be leaders in the adoption of this new technology,” Girotra said.

“Having our teams together in this new location will build a strong foundation for the future and greatly enhance our ability to deliver the benefits of 5G in Oceania.”

Zoltan Losteiner, Nokia head of Oceania, said Nokia brings together “the best of global technology scale and local expertise, combining for innovative solutions that accelerate deployment and create value”.

“We have a wonderful heritage here and this new headquarters marks a fresh chapter, an investment in our people and our capability to deliver 5G and mission critical networks being demanded by our carrier, enterprise and government customers.”

Senator Fifield said Nokia has made a “great contribution to Australia over many years, including a as a key strategic partner with NBN and trusted supplier to our telecommunications carriers”.

He said he was delighted to see Nokia investing to support the next generation of services in Australia.
