U.S. satellite TV provider Dish Network has signed up Qualcomm as its latest partner in efforts to build its 5G network using open and cloud-based platforms by 2023, it said on Wednesday.
"We are excited about working with DISH to accelerate their strategy to bring flexible, scalable, and interoperable 5G deployments to a more competitive North American market," said Durga Malladi, Qualcomm's 5G lead, in the press release.
