Nokia Corp. said Thursday that it has been selected by Japanese mobile operators SoftBank Corp. and KDDI Corp. as one of the vendors to deploy Japan's shared 5G network, delivering services to both SoftBank and KDDI subscribers in the country.

Nokia will install a multi-operator radio access network that will allow both companies to share the network while keeping their core networks separate.

Network sharing helps support efficient deployments as base station sites and infrastructure are shared, Nokia said.
