Proximus picks Nokia for new RAN, Ericsson to upgrade core for 5G

Friday 9 October 2020 | 08:44 CET | News
Belgian operator Proximus has selected Nokia to upgrade its radio access network and Ericsson for a new mobile data core network. The suppliers will help the company build on its initial 5G network using existing spectrum and the temporary permit for the 3.5 GHz band. The decision means Proximus will no longer work with Huawei on the next generation of 5G network technology.
