Representatives of the German Federal Government have decided that Huawei can supply 5G network components in the country.
The ‘security catalog’, due to be published this week, will confirm Germany’s decision to keep a level playing field for suppliers to next-generation telecoms networks, despite calls by the United States to ban Huawei, reported Reuters.
Network operators had warned that barring Huawei will add years of delay and billions of dollars to roll out 5G network in Germany.
“Germany’s approach did not and does not foresee any clause that would exclude any one company,” said a senior government official.
Network operators in Germany have strongly opposed the US’s call to ban Huawei on the concern of the national security threat from its equipment and the allegation of working under the Chinese government. Of which, the Huawei has repeatedly denied.
