New Delhi, June 14: Under very immense pressure from telecommunication companies to decide over the fate of the Chinese telecom giant Huawei technology Pvt Ltd for the next-generation 5G network development, the Indian telecom secretary Aruna Sundararajan has stated the authority is keeping a close eye over global development, and that it will take a “calibrated decision”.

According to Sputnik news reports, the Indian government’s statement comes after a day when United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on June 12 addressed the India-US business council, stating the US was “eager to help India establish secure communications networks – including 5G networks”, underlining Washington remains committed to “protect data and secure consumers’ privacy”.

While interacting with the media conference in New Delhi, “We will ensure all security certification and there will be no compromise on security. But equally, we will drive a hard bargain to ensure that Indian start-ups are included.”

Industry body Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI) who represents every nation’s private telecom operators has been pushing the Indian government to take a decision much earlier over the Huawei’s 5G equipment.

India has announced the beginning of 5G networks trials within the coming next three months. India’s telecom operators have also expressed major concerns over the price disruption by fewer equipment suppliers.

New Delhi has already established a testbed worth $77 millions to back service providers who are developing the next-generation 5G equipment and services.

Several American firms have already halted their business relations with China’s Huawei, including Google. Huawei mobile phones are currently using Google’s Android operating system.
