Telenor chooses Ericsson for 5G RAN build-out

Telenor ASA selected Ericsson to build its 5G radio access network in Norway.

The Norwegian operator considered equipment suppliers' technical quality, ability to innovate and modernize the network, and commercial terms and conditions in making its decision. Telenor also carried out an extensive security evaluation.

The network modernization may take around four to five years. In light of this timeline, Telenor will continue using equipment from existing RAN vendor Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. to maintain the 4G network and to upgrade to 5G coverage in selected areas of Norway.

Meanwhile, the operator's core network is being upgraded through agreements with both Nokia Corp. and Ericsson. Telenor plans to ramp up the rollout of 5G to its customers in Norway in 2020, Telenor Norway CEO Petter-Børre Furberg said in a statement.

The company is in the process of building 5G in the city of Trondheim, following its recent launch of a 5G pilot.
