Original title: 5G 丨 German Federal Network Director Hörmann said there is no reason to exclude Huawei from 5G construction
[TechWeb] April 15th news, according to foreign media reports, the German telecommunications regulator Federal Network Director Homan said that Germany's 5G construction has no reason to rule out Huawei.
German Federal Network Agency (BNetzA) director Jochen · Jochen Homann said to foreign media, "The German Federal Network Agency's position is that any equipment supplier, including Huawei, should not be —— or can &mdash ;— is specifically excluded. ”
The German Federal Network Agency launched a 5G spectrum auction last month. The four operators competing for 5G network licenses, namely Deutsche Telekom, Vodafone, Telefó (nica) and Drillisch, have submitted more than 5.2 billion euros in bids so far. Once the auction is over, these companies can begin to build the infrastructure of the 5G network.
Hörmann believes that banned Huawei from participating in this process will cause trouble for Deutsche Telekom and its competitors. He said, “If Huawei is excluded from the market, it will delay the construction of digital networks. ”
In response to concerns from the United States and other countries, Hörmann’s agency released a new version of the safety guidelines last month. Hörmann said that if Huawei meets all these requirements, it can participate in the construction of 5G networks.
Last month, German Economy Minister Peter Altmaier also said that the country does not want to ban Huawei from building a German 5G network, but will tighten the safety standards of all suppliers.
