European Union to not ban Huawei but impose solid 5G rules

BRUSSELS: The European Union (EU ) will not ban Chinese telecom giant Huawei or any other company in Europe, a top official said on Tuesday, despite intense pressure from Washington to shun the firm over spying fears.

According to the sources of Reuters, Chancellor Angela Merkel’s preference for applying the same rules to all equipment vendors faces growing resistance from lawmakers in her own party, who back U.S. calls to ban Huawei outright.

Even as Britain prepares to quit the European Union, the finishing touches are still being put on a bloc-wide framework to address risks in networks that will become faster and more ubiquitous in the 5G era.

Europe’s leading telecoms operators, who are all Huawei customers, are lobbying against an outright ban.

At the same time, they are removing the Chinese company’s gear from the “core” of their networks. The core routes traffic and manages data and is thus more sensitive than the peripheral radio network.

Huawei is one of the world’s leading network technology suppliers, and one of the few — along with European telecom companies Nokia and Ericsson — capable of building 5G networks.
