Orange sees Samsung as credible alternative in 5G network equipment sector

Friday 19 April 2019 | 10:17 CET | News
Orange CEO Stephane Richard has described Samsung as a very credible alternative to more established players in the 5G equipment sector, reports Reuters. Like all operators, Orange has an interest in seeing competition in this market. The company favours diversity, as a safeguard from the risk of becoming dependent on any one supplier, explained Richard. To this end, Orange will carry out tests on Samsung equipment later this year in Saint-Ouen, the location near Paris where the Korean group has built its French head office.
