The Chinese corporation Huawei may be excluded from the implementation of fifth-generation (5G) mobile communication systems in Germany. This was announced on Monday by the Die Welt newspaper.
According to her, the German government has prepared a new bill on IT security, containing the criteria applied to companies wishing to participate in the development of Internet communications in Germany. In the near future, as the newspaper indicates, it will be presented in parliament.
вЂњThese criteria are so strict that China's Huawei has no chance of success,вЂќ the newspaper said.
Huawei Corporation, as Welt emphasizes, offers inexpensive and technically superior products. However, according to critics, using such devices is not safe. In particular, as the newspaper writes, skeptics fear that the PRC may use components of Huawei products to influence the operation of such strategically important facilities as power plants and hospitals.
At the moment, according to the newspaper, the bill has not yet been finalized. The Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Federal Republic of Germany are discussing it.
