Germany won't bar any 5G vendors on up-front basis: spokesman

BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany has set rules governing 5G mobile networks that will not exclude any equipment vendors on an up-front basis, government spokesman Steffen Seibert said on Monday.

“Essentially our approach is as follows: We are not taking a pre-emptive decision to ban any actor, or any company,” Seibert told a news conference.

Officials said that a detailed ‘security catalogue’, setting technical and governance criteria for 5G networks, would be published shortly.
