NOKIA upgrades the San Jose office with new AV - Creation Networks

Nokia Corp (Nokia) is a communications and information technology company that operates in the areas of network infrastructure and advanced technologies. Overlooking downtown San Jose, Nokia's new North American headquarters houses the teams responsible for creating products and solutions.The goal was to new provide collaboration spaces for their staff.  

the challenge

For Nokia’s new 40,000-square-foot administrative hub, the organization sought to create a space where employees would have the opportunity to work collectively in a flexible workspace. As Nokia considered the design of their new hybrid offices, they viewed a technologically infused working environment as an essential investment to engage and retain employees while also attracting new ones.
Nokia’s approach was “people first, technology second.” The office design needed to prioritize the employee experience and empower them to focus on what they enjoy while automating the rest.

the solution

Nokia partnered with collaboration provider Creation Networks and NOVO construction to adapt a technology standard that would foster a more collaborative and productive office environment. Technology guidelines were developed to standardize each room size and replicate a consistent experience across their conference and meeting rooms using Crestron Flex for Microsoft Teams® Rooms.

the technology

Nokia’s customers are the beneficiaries of engaged and motivated employees. The goal of the new office was to create a work experience that would be a favorite for employees; a place anyone would want to work. Crestron technology within the office allows team members to collaborate and embrace the opportunity of a hybrid work schedule. With Crestron Flex, it is easy for employees to collaborate with their teams and remote workers while remaining productive. The range of the Crestron Flex platform allowed Blue Foundry to embrace different form factors to scale the audio and video experience appropriately for every space.

In Nokia's busy office, the Crestron and Room Scheduling Panels help foster a productive work environment where employees can book rooms like a hotel. Employees have embraced the scheduling system, structuring meeting room usage and streamlining management of these spaces. For the health and safety of employees, wave sensors were also installed to eliminate touchpoints as employees move through the office. Nokia employees were able to quickly learn to use the technology and now they see it as a natural extension of their workplace.

Nokia worked with Creation Networks to fully integrate every piece of Crestron and Cisco technology, driving how the office functions and performs for employees. The audiovisual experience is consistent throughout the office, creating an engaging experience in common spaces and more.

The new office space features many customized finishes and unique amenities such as a lounge, and a café which serves as a unique space for teams to connect. In the café, large displays show sports games and news programming, in addition to corporate branding and advertising content. Nokia also displays company signage to acknowledge work anniversaries, significant events, and more.

the results

Technology is an avenue for Nokia to expand its products and services to meet the needs of its employees, customers, and communities beyond the administrative headquarters. With the success of the recent Crestron deployment, NOKIA is exploring bringing similar experiences to their new offices as well. Crestron streamlined the experience and the technologies provided made it an easy decision to standardize on the same solution across our other offices.
