    Here's what caused yesterday's O2 and SoftBank outages

    It appears that most mobile carriers, including O2 and SoftBank, have recovered from yesterday's cell phone network outage that was triggered by a shutdown of Ericsson equipment running on their networks. While Ericsson acknowledged in their press release yesterday that expired certificates were at the root of the problem, you may be wondering why this would cause a a shutdown. It turns out that it's likely due to a fail-safe system in place, says Tim Callan, senior fellow at Sectigo (formerly Comodo CA), a U.S. certificate issuing authority.

    [$$] Cell Service in Japan Goes Down for Hours, Clouding Year’s Biggest IPO

    TOKYO—SoftBank Group Corp.’s Japanese mobile unit suffered an hourslong nationwide network breakdown Thursday, tarnishing the unit’s planned $23 billion initial public offering later this month. Television footage showed long lines forming at phone booths during the four-and-a-half hours that the network went down at Japan’s third-largest carrier. The network failure, which began Thursday afternoon local time and was resolved by the evening, arose because of a software glitch that affected Ericsson telecom equipment world-wide, SoftBank said.

Fosun Tourism, backed by tycoon Guo Guangchang, is working to finish its offering after European equities slumped Thursday and a late rally in the U.S. failed to erase all the day’s losses.

    [$$] SoftBank’s Vision Fund sets up investment team in China

    SoftBank’s Vision Fund is setting up an investment team in China, according to two people with knowledge of the deal, as it aims to disburse part of its $100bn kitty in the country that is home to some of the world’s biggest tech start-ups. People with knowledge of the matter have told the Financial Times that US concerns stem from SoftBank’s reliance on its investment in Alibaba and Mr Son’s connections to Chinese entrepreneurs such as Jack Ma, founder of the ecommerce group. SoftBank holds a 29 per cent stake in Alibaba and the two have co-invested in a number of deals, including China’s ride-sharing company Didi Chuxing and Paytm, the Indian ecommerce group.
