There have been two major 5G announcements in the Nordic region lately. The first one was the Prime Ministers of Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland and Iceland having signed a Letter of Intent committing all five countries to creating the public-sector conditions needed for 5G and digitalization to flourish in the Nordics. A week after this announcement, the European Investment Bank signed a €250 million loan agreement with Ericsson  to boost the vendor’s R&D efforts around 5G. This shows that 5G is becoming a regional competitive edge and a political issue to create jobs as well as staying ahead in the race of innovation, as the Nordic region has been a leader for some time. A research report by the global telecommunications research firm Analysys Mason and Deloitte Consulting establishes for example that China holds a lead in overall 5G readiness, ahead of South Korea and the United States. This illustrates that 5G is not just a new technology, it is much more important. It is also a way of competing between regions, providing the best infrastructure to enable and drive innovation. What’s happening in the Nordics, will for sure strengthen the 5G offering in the region and it will be positive for all companies working within 5G technology and all new innovations this will bring. As you might have noticed, Sivers IMA received funding for 5G development and research from Vinnova and it seems clear there will be more initiatives from the government to support the development of 5G, following the Nordic Prime Ministers’ announcement. As further proof points of the interest in 5G, Sivers IMA has signed agreements with two new 5G product partners in the last couple of weeks. These companies sell equipment all over the world and they are now developing 5G productswhich shows the need for 5G mmWave solutions to support the coming 5G network buildout all over the world. Therefore, we are very optimistic about the Nordic region focusing on 5G, something we believe will lead to increased investments in 5G networks and secure future innovation in the region.

Sivers IMA announces a 5G millimeter wave partnership with a leading European provider of licensed point-to-multipoint broadband networks (PMP) microwave and millimeter wave solutions, which has a large installed base of point to multipoint systems all over the world today.
Sivers IMA announces a 5G millimeter wave partnership with a North American leading global provider of wireless broadband solutions. The partnership is focused on the development and early access to 5G millimeter wave (mmWave) RF components, where the highly-integrated RF solution from Sivers IMA will be a key component in the partner’s plans to provide leading millimeter wave products to the emergent 5G millimeter wave market.
Sivers IMA Holding AB (Nasdaq First North: SIVE) today announced that it has received a 5.5 MSEK order for VCOs from our US distributor East Coast Microwave.
Sivers IMA Holding AB (Nasdaq First North: SIVE) today announces that its WiGig chip paper has been selected the number one industry showcase at IEEE Radio Frequency Integrated Circuit (RFIC) symposium, in competition with major semiconductor companies like Intel, Qualcomm, Samsung, Infineon and others. This happened at the event ceremony Sunday evening local time in Philadelphia.The IEEE RFIC symposium is the world premier RFIC conference focused on RFIC technology.
Today Sivers IMA (Nasdaq First North: SIVE) announces that they, together with Uppsala University, has been granted a total contribution of 4 MSEK from “Smartare Elektroniksystem Forsknings- och innovationsprojekt 2018”. The project will be led by Sivers IMA and it will be executed together with the Institution for Technical Science at “Ångströmslaboratoriet” at Uppsala University.
Sivers IMA Holding AB (Nasdaq First North: SIVE) today announces that the company will participate in a dedicated Fixed Wireless Access panel discussion at Wi-Fi NOW USA, a world leading Wi-Fi event. Sivers IMA will also exhibit its latest RF solution for 60 GHz infrastructure WiGig and meet with several potential customers.
Sivers IMA Holding AB (Nasdaq First North: SIVE) today announces that the company has been selected among a large number of papers to present its RFIC paper at the IEEE Radio Frequency Integrated Circuit (RFIC) symposium.
Sivers IMA Holding AB (Nasdaq First North: SIVE) today announces that the company has received an order worth SEK 6.5m for delivery of FMCW radar modules to a leading systems integrator in the maritime area. The order applies to older FMCW radar modules that Sivers IMA has developed and manufactured for many years. Sivers IMA recently announced an end-of-life for this type of FMCW radar modules. Since this an end-of-life order for these products, the order value is higher than for an average year.
Sivers IMA Holdings AB subsidiary, CST Global, has successfully proven the feasibility of 60GHz Radio over Fiber (ROF) transmission, at a 1270nm wavelength. ROF networks are emerging as a completely new and promising communication paradigm for delivering broadband wireless access services and fronthaul at 60 GHz, relying on the synergy between fixed optical and millimeter wave (mmWave) technologies. CST Global’s research shows that their 60GHz, ROF, broadband solution is feasible, by combining CST Global’s optical solutions and mmWave technology from Sivers IMA in the future.
