The United States continues to develop next-generation networks in its territory. For a long time, they were helped by their main ideological enemies – Huawei. The US authorities have decided to cancel the cooperation. Without thinking twice, the Americans decided to ask for help from a less controversial company – HMD Global, which owns the Nokia brand.
US Cellular selects Nokia and Ericsson to build its 5G network
More specifically, US Cellular, one of the many mobile phone companies in the country, has partnered with Nokia to expand its 5G network. With Huawei’s proposals no longer being considered, there are very few options available to US carriers.
Nokia and Ericsson have become the obvious choices, but both offer more expensive services than Huawei – China, as always, has a good price. In any case, US Cellular wants to expand the capabilities of its 5G network by adding 24 GHz and 28 GHz bandwidths, without which stable 5G operation is virtually impossible.
As a result, Nokia will begin installing the AirScale solution to support US Cellular customers. US Cellular hopes to start providing fifth generation connectivity to its subscribers as early as 2021.
Nokia will work throughout 2020 to ensure that the US 5G cellular network meets bandwidth and speed needs. At this time, we do not know how successful this experience will be. Because Huawei has always been and remains a leader in communications, but desperate times require desperate action. We can only wish the Finnish company good luck and patience at Huawei.
Huawei 5G global development
The Chinese manufacturing giant, Huawei, is one of the leading companies in the development of 5G worldwide. Unfortunately, it is not on the same page with some governments, especially the US government. Nevertheless, the company is moving forward and breaking new ground. Recently, Huawei participated in the Better World Online 2020 summit. The theme of this conference is “Working for a Better World”. At this conference, Huawei rotating president Guo Ping says there is a need for cooperation to create new opportunities.
Huawei is proud of its 5G commercial success and is fully releasing its dividend on the 5G network. As of July, there have been more than 90 million 5G users worldwide. Guo Ping pointed out: “Global 5G development is over and the next phase focuses on: development of industry applications and release of 5G network dividends«.
Guo added that in the current context of the global economy, operators must also focus on the present and the future. He therefore believes that operators must build networks accurately to maximize the value of the network.
