Nokia’s Buy America-Compliant broadband products are now available

April 24, 2024
Nokia's optical line terminal (OLT) cards are the first products from the Sanmina manufacturing line.

Nokia has become the first technology vendor to announce the availability of Buy America-compliant products, now rolling off Sanmina’s manufacturing line, for broadband infrastructure projects implemented by BEAD applicants. 

After laying out its plans in Sanmina, Nokia claims it was able to deliver on its commitment to manufacture Buy America-compliant products in the United States in a record-breaking time.

Charlie Mason, Executive Vice President of Worldwide Sales at Sanmina, said its experience enabled it to ramp up quickly.  “Drawing on more than 40 years of manufacturing experience in the U.S., our team was able to ramp up production in record time and deliver quality products that meet both Nokia’s and NTIA’s Buy America requirements,” he said.

The first Nokia product to come off the Sanmina manufacturing line is its Optical Line Terminal (OLT) cards. Nokia Buy America Compliant fiber-optic products include:

·       Nokia FX and MF OLT modular product lines

·       Nokia SF-8M sealed OLT

·       XS-220X-A ONT

It said it will self-certify each product according to NTIA specifications to ensure listed vendors comply with the final guidelines. Nokia’s OLTs can be ordered as individual products or as part of Nokia’s Network-in-a-Box program.

“By aligning with Buy American guidelines, we're actively contributing to the U.S. government's mission of expanding nationwide broadband access,” said Sandy Motley, Nokia's President of Fixed Networks.
