The network of the fifth generation in Canada will create a Swedish company Ericsson and Finnish Nokia
Canada refused from the Chinese company Huawei Technologies, which previously planned to involve the project of creation of telecommunication networks of the fifth generation – 5G. Now this task is completed, the Swedish company Ericsson and Finnish Nokia.
About the new decision became known Tuesday, 2 June. So, the two largest canadian telecommunications company Bell Canada and Telus Corp. teamed up with the Swedish company Ericsson (ERICb.ST) and Finland’s Nokia Oyj. The latter will become suppliers of necessary equipment.
Earlier the German company Telefonica Germany has chosen Ericsson to create its core mobile network 5G in Germany.
Reuters recalled that last week the Supreme court of the canadian province of British Columbia heard the case of Huawei’s CFO Meng Wanzhou. The court upheld the possibility of extradition of the citizen of China to the United States. The decision on extradition should take the Minister of justice of Canada. In the United States Wanzhou accused of Bank fraud, she faces up to twenty years in prison.
Note that the Chinese company Huawei was the cause of the economic war between the US and China. The us government has accused the company of spying for Beijing.
