Ericsson to supply 5G equipment to Telefonica Deutschland

Tuesday, 02. June 2020 10:04

Telefonica Germany GmbH & Co., trading as O2, announced on Tuesday Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson will supply equipment for its 5G core network.

The decision comes as some European providers move away from Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. due to security concerns relating to the tech giant's connections to China's government.

"With Ericsson as a technology partner for our 5G core network, we can continue to offer our private and business customers the most powerful network technologies at economically attractive prices. The O2 mobile network will become a synonym for digital trust," CEO Markus Haas said in the press release.
