Indian software major Wipro has tied up with the University of Oulu in Finland to develop 5G technologies, the IT vendor said on Tuesday.

“Our collaboration with Oulu is to focus on wireless communications in 5G/6G at GHz, THz and light wave frequencies under the Finnish university’s flagship programme,” said the city-based company in a statement here.

As an international science institute, the Oulu-based university focuses on innovation for the future, wellbeing and knowledge through research and education.

Qualcomm President Cristiano Amon at Company’s Snapdragon Tech Summit this week has said that the main goal of Qualcomm’s renewed relationship with Apple right now is to get a 5G iPhone launched on time.

During the summit, Amon stated: “Priority number one of this relationship with Apple is how to launch their phone as fast as we can. That’s the priority,” PCMag reported recently.

“We have a multi-year agreement with Apple. It’s not one, it’s not two, it’s multi-year for our Snapdragon modem. We’re setting no expectations on front end, especially because we engaged it very late,” Amon added.

Earlier, Apple and Intel were working closely to bring a 5G iPhone. However, once the six-year deal between Qualcomm and Apple was made, Intel later moved away from the 5G mobile marketplace.
