Germany is considering blocking the use of Huawei products for the future 5G technology, writes BBC, according to news.ro. Several countries have opposed Huawei's involvement in 5G networks due to security issues.
China Huawei, one of the world's largest telecommunications equipment manufacturers, is suspected by several governments that its technology could be used for spying. Huawei has denied these allegations.
