Nokia acquires US silicon photonics startup
Finnish telecommunications company Nokia has acquired Elenion Technologies Inc. (New York), a company that develops silicon photonics technology, for an undisclosed amount of money.

Elenion, founded in 2014, creates silicon photonics system-on-chips tailored to telecom, hyperscale communication and networking applications. The company claims to have proprietary CMOS-compatible-process and design tools, coupled with partners in a high-volume production semiconductor fab and OSAT manufacturing facility.

Nokia said it would use Elenion's technology to address the optical connectivity requirements of 5G, cloud and enterprise networking. 

Nokia's mobile phone brand is licensed to HMD Global Oy. Nokia's core business is equipment for telecommunications infrastructure. It also owns Bell Labs, relabelled as Nokia Bell Labs.
