Nokia today announced that the first Buy America-compliant products have rolled off the Sanmina manufacturing line. This significant milestone underscores the company's commitment to providing BEAD applicants with the broadband technology needed for critical infrastructure projects that will help close the digital divide. After announcing its plans with Sanmina, Nokia was able to deliver on its commitment to manufacture Buy America- compliant products in the United States in a record-breaking time.

The first Nokia products to come off the Sanmina manufacturing line are its Optical Line Terminal (OLT) cards, which help connect users to fast, reliable gigabit data services. These devices are critical in fiber networks, ensuring broadband data gets to and from homes or businesses.

Nokia will self-certify each product according to NTIA specifications to ensure that listed vendors comply with the final guidelines.

The Nokia OLTs can be ordered as individual products or as part of Nokia's Network-in-a-Box program.
