“I was pleased to see a strong quarter in Mobile Networks, which grew 12% in constant currency as we benefited from our improved competitiveness and improving supply situation.
Net sales growth remained robust also in Network Infrastructure at 5%, driven by continued strong underlying demand trends, said Pella. Cloud and Networks Services declined 3% as we worked to rebalance the portfolio but with an improving gross margin. Nokia Technologies continued to deliver good progress in its patent licensing growth areas, such as automotive and consumer electronics. These areas, which were negligible in 2018, now contribute over EUR 100 million in net sales in the past 12 months.”
