Nokia and Innventure have announced intentions to commercialise Nokia Bell Labs’ high-performance cooling solution for data centres and mobile network equipment. Accelsius, a new business founded by Innventure, has acquired the rights to Nokia’s cooling technology and will be responsible for its continued development and commercialization.

“Energy efficient networks and reliable cooling have always been important areas of innovation at Nokia. By collaborating with Innventure, our hugely versatile cooling technology can be offered to a broad range of companies in different industries to meet the challenge of heat densities in data centers and telecom networks while lowering energy consumption,”

Jukka Nihtila, Nokia’s Vice-President of Patent Transactions and External Alliances, said.

Cooling is delivered directly to the chip or other heat sources using this ground-breaking, scalable cooling technique. Without the need of pumps, a passive two-stage coolant circulation technique allows for dependable, energy-efficient heat transmission and dissipation from high-density heat sources. The easy-to-install, energy-efficient, and compact cooling system may be used to cool a wide variety of important electronic equipment and can be scaled up or down, from a single server to massive data centres.

“We are very excited to build a new company around a technology that Nokia Bell Labs has been developing for more than a decade. This innovative technology addresses an acute market need across the entire spectrum of networking and computing sites. It is positioned to disrupt the cooling industry as it exists today with flexible solutions that can be widely deployed for data centers and telecom,”

Bill Haskell, Founder and CEO of Innventure, said.

“We are delighted to work with Innventure to commercialize our groundbreaking cooling technology. This innovative solution developed at Nokia Bell Labs will enable cooling of computing systems with high heat densities, at low energy consumption and with very little complexity. This advancement will help data centers continue to grow their computing capacity while becoming more energy efficient,”

Theodore Sizer, Lab Leader, Optical Systems and Device Research at Nokia Bell Labs said.

The partnership between Nokia and Innventure comes after the two businesses announced in 2019 that they will collaborate to commercialise Nokia’s technology and intellectual property in sectors outside of the company’s main business.
