3 UK has announced the launch of its 5G-ready, fully integrated cloud core network. The network, rolled out with Nokia, comes as the operator prepares for the deployment of 5G from August and comes under the operator's GBP 2 billion 5G infrastructure investment programme. The core network will be managed from 20 new 3 UK data centres across the UK, for lower latency. Nokia will provide essential systems integration, security, and managed services capabilities, alongside Nokia routing, software and mobile radio technology.
