The European Commission released Wednesday its security recommendations for EU countries to introduce the fifth generation of mobile networks, called 5G.
The guidelines do not include a direct ban on Chinese technology group Huawei, however, it permits EU member states to ban or restrict 5G providers from their core telecom network in case they present a proven high-security risk.
The non-compulsory guidelines include telecoms and cybersecurity rules, a framework for foreign direct investment screening, trade defense instruments and coordination on an EU-wide security certification system.
Member states are called to adopt the key measures by April 30.
