Singapore’s Telcos Tap Nokia, Ericsson To Build 5G Networks
SINGAPORE: Singapore telcos have separately selected Nokia and Ericsson to build infrastructure for new 5G networks.
A joint venture between M1 and Starhub said the duo had selected Nokia to build the city-state’s radio access network and that the Finnish company is the preferred supplier for the core and mmWave networks.
The companies said they are also exploring other network parts with China’s Huawei and ZTE.
In a separate statement, the other licensee, Singtel, said it had selected Ericsson to negotiate the provision of RAN (radio access network), core and mmWave networks.
