German Government and Mobile Operators Reach Agreement to Phase Out Chinese Suppliers from 5G Networks

Following extensive negotiations, the German federal government and mobile network operators have reached a consensus to partially ban Chinese 5G technology. The agreement mandates the removal of critical components of Chinese origin from core networks by 2026 and the elimination of Chinese software from antenna and access networks by 2029. Despite concerns about Chinese market dominance in the German 5G network, the compromise falls short of earlier demands, with no large-scale dismantling obligations imposed.

The decision also includes contractual penalties for non-compliance and emphasizes the need for open interfaces to ensure network security. The move aims to safeguard the 5G infrastructure from potential security risks and reduce dependencies on Chinese providers, reflecting ongoing global efforts to secure critical telecommunications networks.

Agreement with operators - Huawei to be largely removed from 5G network

Agreement: 5G core network until 2026, access network until 2029 without Chinese components. Contractual penalties for violations. Pact for open interfaces. The background is concerns about the market power of Chinese providers, who according to the analysis make up 60% of the German 5G network, and the protection of the 5G infrastructure by the federal government and security authorities. The negotiations were initially tough due to the companies' claims for damages and disputes within the federal government.

German 5G networks: No more critical components from Huawei by 2029 | heise online

The German government and mobile network operators have agreed to stop using critical components from Huawei or ZTE in German 5G networks by 2029. This particularly concerns network management systems that ensure the operation of antennas and base stations. The antennas themselves are not critical and could theoretically also be operated with a network management system from another manufacturer, provided that Huawei opens its proprietary interfaces to third-party providers.

Keine Teile von Huawei oder ZTE: Regierung verschärft Anforderungen an Funknetz-Komponenten - n-tv.de

Die Bundesregierung hat neue Anforderungen an Funknetz-Komponenten verschärft, um die Funknetze vor chinesischen Einflüssen zu sichern. Ab 2026 dürfen keine Komponenten mehr von als sicherheitskritisch eingestuften Herstellern wie Huawei oder ZTE im Kernnetz verwendet werden. Ab 2029 sollen diese Hersteller auch in Transportnetzen und bei Antennen nicht mehr zum Einsatz kommen. Die Maßnahmen zielen darauf ab, das 5G-Netz als 'Zentralnervensystem' des Wirtschaftsstandorts bestmöglich vor Sicherheitsrisiken und Abhängigkeiten zu schützen.
