According to the reports, Huawei will set up an information security laboratory in Bonn, Germany next month to facilitate the German review of the source code and win the trust of German regulators for Huawei 5G devices.
Since the beginning of this year, the United States, Canada, Australia and India have used national security as an excuse to prohibit domestic operators from purchasing Huawei 5G equipment.
However, thanks to Huawei's long-term efforts in the European telecommunications market, the relationship between Huawei's and European countries is very good. Just last month, the first 5G base station that Italy put into commercial use which was Huawei 5G equipment.
The German Federal Network Regulatory Authority (BNetzA) plans to issue 5G licenses in the first quarter of 2019, and the agency is also located in Bonn, Germany.
According to reports, Germany's 5G total investment may be as high as 80 billion euros, or about 630 billion yuan. In contrast, for the whole year of 2017, global 2G/3G/LTE hardware revenue was only 37.2 billion US dollars, or about 250 billion yuan.
As the world's largest supplier of telecommunications equipment, Huawei is bound to win 5G orders in Germany. German officials have also said that they are willing to maintain a close trade and investment relationship with China without prejudice to their national network security.
