Vodafone picks Samsung for 5G network

Vodafone UK has chosen Samsung as a supplier for its 5G infrastructure, as it seeks to extend its coverage.

The Radio Access Network covers the equipment that provides the final link between your phone and the telephone network, and includes equipment such as mobile phone antennas on towers and buildings. Because equipment from different suppliers is interoperable, the network can be put together using components from a range of companies, rather like Lego, as opposed to being built by a single supplier. Samsung still had a long way to go to catch up with Ericsson and Nokia, he noted, but should be seen as "a genuine contender".
