An Interview With Ingobert Veith, Director of Public Policy, Huawei Germany

When it comes to 5G, Germany is very optimistic. From operators’ national rollout plans to private network deals with industry, the new technology is set to broadly change the face of connectivity throughout the country. 

So, what exactly is the next step for 5G in Germany?

For Huawei Germany’s Director of Public Policy, Ingobert Veith, the next step is finding a way to leverage the latest technology to boost Germany to the same 5G levels as world leading nations like China and South Korea, as well as increasing collaboration throughout the industry.

"Let’s focus on synergies and not focus on 5G network expansion as a totally isolated process," said Veith. "You have to make sure that you can keep or even increase your share of the value chain and you just can’t reach this by increasing your competencies. In order to overcome this lack of competency, cooperation is of great importance."

The full interview with Ingobert Veith, discussing key technologies for Germany’s 5G future and the role of private 5G networks, can be viewed below:
