Chinese manufacturing giant, Huawei, has been at loggerheads with the US on multiple issues. The US has always told its allies to desist from Huawei’s 5G. It believes that Huawei’s 5G is not safe and has backdoors. However, some countries including Germany are not very keen to ban Huawei. Now, reports out of Germany claims that the German government will allow Huawei to participate in its 5G construction.
According to the report, the policy has not yet been finalized, but anonymous German government officials have confirmed the accuracy of the news. According to them, Germany’s security regulators will provide a level playing field for the next generation network. In addition, it will not exclude any company that has the capacity to participate.
Huawei is a partner of several German telecom operators. These operators previously said that if Huawei’s ban is active in Germany, it will delay the deployment of 5G networks for many years. This will not only set its 5G behind, it will also lose billions of dollars.
Huawei is currently the world’s largest supplier of 5G telecommunications equipment with a market share of more than 28 %. It is ahead of European companies such as Ericsson and Nokia. Its 5G network has received more than 50 orders worldwide. In addition, it has shipped over 150,000 units of 5G base stations globally.
