Nokia has signed a long-term agreement with Telia to use its data center in Helsinki for IT and service platform hosting.

Telia Helsinki Data Center is the largest open data center in Finland. Opened in June 2018, it provides top level systems for security, safety and power, offering the most modern and safe facility for data. The data center has multiple connections to Telia's global network that hosts almost 40 percent of the daily global internet traffic. Data centers are an integral part of the 5G network architecture.

The total capacity of Telia Helsinki Data Center is 24 megawatts. The servers generate massive amounts of heat, which will be used for heating up to 20 000 apartments in the neighboring city of Espoo.
