With a diverse and open ecosystem, Vodafone (VOD) aims to develop a more cost-effective, secure, energy efficient and customer-focused network in the United Kingdom.
Vodafone has turned to Japanese and American suppliers to fill the void left by Huawei in its 5G supply chain after the UK telecoms company awarded Europe’s first major “open RAN” contract to a host of alternative suppliers. The carrier has handed a contract to Samsung Electronics, NEC, Dell and Wind River to build Europe’s first commercial “open RAN” network. Capgemini, the French consulting group, and Keysight Technologies of the US will work on network integration.
In July 2020, Britain banned Huawei from its 5G network, reversing an earlier decision to allow the Chinese company to work on the critical telecoms infrastructure.
