Nokia Corp. said Thursday that its core networks business has chosen 3rd generation AMD EPYC processors to power the servers that deliver Nokia cloud-native software products, expanding the server-chip choices available to communication service providers to drive performance and energy efficiency improvements of 5G networks.

The Finnish telecommunications-equipment supplier said the announcement represents an extension of Nokia's broader efforts to accelerate digitalization to help the industry reduce its environmental footprint.

Nokia is targeting up to a 40% reduction in server power consumption to run core workloads using AMD EPYC processors.

Nokia said communication service provider customers can purchase the AMD EPYC powered servers through Nokia or direct from other suppliers when they become commercially available during the first half of 2022.

Existing servers using other chips that deliver Nokia core software will continue to be available, it added.

Nokia has committed to decreasing its emissions by 50% by 2030 across its value chain, including its own operations, products in use, logistics, and final assembly supplier factories.
