German regulators have released a set of guidelines on network security for companies wanting to help build next-generation 5G infrastructure. The conditions stop short of excluding controversial Chinese telecom Huawei.
The issue of 5G has dominated the discourse, and was one of the talking points between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Donald Trump, on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Osaka on June 28.
In February last year, mobile company Airtel and Chinese equipment maker Huawei had conducted India’s first 5G trial, during which a user throughput of 3 Gbps was achieved. But not much has moved since.
