France will allow the use of some of Huawei’s equipment in the rollout of its 5G network, reports Reuters. The move comes at a time when the U.S. has called out for exclusion of Huawei from the West’s next-generation communications. ANSSI, the French cybersecurity agency, will tell Chinese telecoms giant which equipment they are allowed to use for the deployment of their 5G network in France. It has yet to make public any decision, reports Reuters.
ANSSI had decided to approve the use of Huawei gear, but only for what they described as non-core parts of the network, as these pose less significant security risks.
