German review of telecoms operators’ use of components underway
Telecoms operators have not yet been banned from using certain components from Chinese companies in their 5G networks, but a general review of suppliers is ongoing, a German interior ministry spokesperson said on Tuesday.
Asked to comment on a reported plan to ban the use of certain components from Chinese companies Huawei and ZTE, the spokesperson said its review now also covers stock components and that it is important not to be too reliant on certain providers.
In general, however, the checks are not directed against specific providers, the spokesperson said with regard to Huawei and ZTE. Reuters
