Nokia and Three UK, part of CK Hutchison, plan to deploy a fully integrated cloud native core network in UK to enable massive scalability, allowing Three to rapidly respond to customers' dynamic service demands while preparing for IoT and 5G.
UK carriers EE and Three have agreed to build the next stage of their basic 4G networks together, including sharing mast infrastructure and transmission costs, according to the Financial Times. Both operators plan to invest a combined £1bn to complete their telecoms infrastructure.
Ericsson has announced that it has been selected to manage operations and maintenance of the MBNL radio access network encompassing the Three UK and EE networks. Mobile Broadband Network Limited (MBNL) is the joint venture company owned by Three UK and EE.
