Few companies go beyond connecting people, they transform the world. Nokia, a brand born in 1865 in a paper mill in South west Finland is today considered to be one of the most successful and important Fortune 500 organisations. The name revolutionized the world of communication and since then has been around in business going full throttle.
Formally known as Nordic Mobile Telephone (NMT), the company built the first international mobile phone network in 1981. This was the beginning of the mobile era. Nokia DX200, their first digital telephone switch went into operation a year later.
