Poland sees need for diversification in 5G equipment suppliers

Wednesday 14 August 2019 | 16:12 CET | News

Poland has submitted to the European Commission its review of suppliers and security issues for 5G networks, Wanda Buk, the deputy minister in the Ministry of Digitalisation, told PAP news agency. Buk said the government hopes to avoid any operator relying on a single supplier. Diversification in this field should reduce the risks of losing control of the network, he said. 

Poland expects to introduce legislation on security requirements and restrictions for operators. The Ministry expects that the position will be accepted by other EU states. The system of certification for equipment would guarantee that the equipment used for the deployment of 5G networks corresponds to safety requirements.  

According to Buk, more than ten tests of 5G networks have already been carried out in Poland, in Lodz, Gliwice, Rzeszow, Warsaw and other locations. The country plans to distribute the first frequencies for 5G services in the first half of 2020.
