Author of the tool talks a bit about it at https://www.reddit.com/r/rust/comments/bq64xw/a_new_memory_p...

Looks like it is made by Nokia. My lucky guess is that they probably use it for base station diagnostics and debugging.

This seems to be Nokia's version of 20% projects.

He said this is used for long running tasks @ Nokia so you are probably right.

The old Nokia had not such things.

As they show the new Nokia phones on the website, I suppose it's definitely not the part that belongs to Microsoft now.

But which is it? HMD Global? Another Nokia?

Microsoft hasn't owned anything Nokia since 2016.

This is Nokia (the company), which licenses Nokia (the phone brand) to HMD global. They are two separate companies that happen to share a building. And some former employees from Nokia (the company) now work at HMD global.

I hope that's clear.

And just to add, there are parts of Nokia (the company) who have absolutely nothing to do with phones.

Edit: although this guy is from Mobile Networks, which is related to mobile phones!

He's from the infrastructure part of the Nokia (i.e. what was NSN - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nokia_Networks), rather than selling handsets part of Nokia.
