welcome. government in berlin says it may also block who always involvement in the country's high speed five g. networks citing national security concerns in response the federation of industries said that until evidence was found no bender's should be excluded from the network the u.s. and other countries are keeping well way away from their five g. networks because of data security concerns they say the company's link to the government in beijing increases the likelihood of cyber espionage. so why is why waste so controversial the company was founded in one thousand nine hundred seven in shenzhen by a former military and generic communist party member it began to sell telephone switching equipment to chinese phone companies and is now the world's number one provider of while as network where the company is private that means it doesn't have to disclose its finances while it says shares are divided between its eighty

thousand employees in china who don't have real voting rights critics claim that an elite corps of managers guides the company and crucially coordinates with the government in beijing who denies that the u.s. is now pressuring allies to exclude war way as they build up sensitive five g. networks so far japan australia new zealand and taiwan agreed on the largest u.k.'s largest carrier is also rejecting the company germany remains uncertain with industry telling the government in berlin that the rollout of five g. is unimaginable without ways hardware. earlier i spoke to marcel dicko an analyst at the institute for international security affairs here in berlin and i asked him if there was any harm there is no public evidence at least that we know so people are connecting dots here so what dots well two things basically is the first thing is that technical experts tell us it is very hard to find out if there are
12:19 pm
backdoor. and of course this technology has maintainance services entries already so there is. a possibility to already monita what's going on with the system that's after all just meaning that the company while we can access the systems from the outside yeah so there is the regular meant maintaining entry point here but there is the fear that there are other hidden back doors. that's the first thing and the second thing is that there's a strong push from the five states and from the national security community towards other states including germany to exclude wave from a technology like five g. but it's still if i mean there's no evidence and still everybody is up in arms about it some experts say that you can't build a phone network without hardware i don't really in alternatives where they are turning to but they are more expensive so there are there are two other firms and
12:20 pm
they are basically from europe who are able to create this kind of technology it's very complicated and it's very neta so it's a difficult thing and obviously if there are only two other left that will increase the price. for. german industry he wants while way to be a part of the five g. bidding process they say nobody should be excluded unless this hard evidence so what would be your accommodation for the german government for example well it's basically a geo political game that we see here so it's not about security at all at least it's about the geo geopolitical conflict between the us and china so i think it's a good advise to be cautious. towards both so exclude to a wife from the very critical components but leave the channels open towards china for the rest when it comes to economy. the five g.

network is a huge thing of course everywhere because a lot of lot of business models will in future rely on it and the internet of things will rely on it. could join up pull the plug if it's true that they can access. how could china and future pull the plug on five g. then you reckon well they can actually every company who provides such kind of technology can because there is a maintainance entry into the technology here but they wouldn't i mean it would be very obvious and the fear is not that they use this kill switch the fear is that they can money to a certain kinds of communication in that network and that that's kind of a security problem here. thank you very much for that analysis. pollution remains
