Trials of 5G deployment will help India decide the role of Chinese vendors

Trials of 5G deployment will help India decide the role of Chinese vendors

The telecom department of India is evaluating 5G trails to check for security vulnerabilities before making decisions in regards to vendors who will be allowed to deploy next-gen airwaves in India. The telecos might have trouble in fixing their vendors because the Chinese equipment makers like ZTE and Huawei are still in war with the government. A person who is aware of the development stated that security is a primary concern with few vendors and the immediate measure will be taken to address it. Every trail will be carried out on a case to case basis and security concerns in regards to that will be looked into. Furthermore, the official stated that the permission that was given was for trial only and security concerns in regards to trial will be addressed. Deployment permissions were not given for all equipment makers which means that ZTE and Huawei are still in contention. Huawei India’s CEO, Jay Chen stated that the company welcomes the decision made by the government to allow all network equipment makers to participate in 5G trials.

India is now caught in an economic and diplomatic tussle between China and the US but it took a stance to by allowing Chinese firms. Despite US objections, the Chinese companies will be ramped up and it is expected to play a major role in deploying the next-gen tech.
