The Indian government has allowed Chinese telecoms equipment giant Huawei Technologies to participate in trials for 5G networks in the country, Reuters reports, citing a company spokesman.
India’s telecom department will meet operators on Dec. 31 to confirm the timing for 5G trials, according to Indian TV channel CNBC-TV18, which first reported the news.
All wireless operators in India are said to have received in-principle approvals to conduct the trials.
India’s nod to Huawei comes at a time when the global rollout of 5G technology has been complicated by US sanctions against the company, Reuters noted
The United States has been lobbying allies not to use Huawei’s network equipment in their 5G networks.
