5G Supplier Diversification Strategy Important Milestone

5G, Diversification strategy

Mobile UK has welcomed the Government’s 5G supplier diversification strategy.

The report from the Task Force is an important milestone in developing that strategy.

Following the Government’s decision on Huawei, it is absolutely necessary to mitigate the risks of having to rely on two incumbent vendors and the funding being made available gives the UK an opportunity to have a leadership role in the development of exciting new technologies, such as OpenRAN, and to grow the supplier base in the UK in the mobile sector. We look forward to progressing this crucial work with the Government in the coming months and years.
