This statement was somewhat unexpected.
Ericsson CEO Borje Ekholm has publicly stated that no other company in the world is ahead of Ericsson when it comes to the 5G industry.
The head of the Swedish company made this statement at the World Economic Forum in Davos, which acknowledged that there was some uncertainty in the market due to the problems Huawei was facing.
By the way, as noted by the sources, Borye Ekholm did not specify what exactly he had in mind, saying that no one was ahead of his company. It is unclear whether we are talking about the intensity of use of 5G equipment when deploying new networks, the number of contracts received, the level of progress or the number of patents.
Today, the main players in the 5G equipment sector are Huawei, Nokia, Ericsson and several other companies. Huawei and the media claim that Huawei is the leader in terms of the number of contracts and volumes of supplies of 5G equipment.
