Singapore’s operators give 5G build to Nokia and Ericsson

SINGAPORE (Reuters) – Singapore’s biggest wireless network operators have selected Nokia and Ericsson over Huawei Technologies Co Ltd to build the main fifth-generation (5G) networks in the city-state. The selection comes amid tension between Singapore’s biggest trading partners, the United States and China, with the United States encouraging allies to exclude China’s Huawei from their networks on security grounds. In a separate statement, 5G licensee Singapore Telecommunications said it had selected Sweden’s Ericsson to negotiate the provision of ran, core and mmWave networks. Australia’s TPG Telecom, which is able to build a localised 5G network in Singapore, will use Huawei, Iswaran said. The city-state has said it is on track for nationwide 5G standalone deployment by 2025.
