The European Commission, the EU's executive arm, had asked member states to put key measures in place by 30 April and prepare a joint report on implementation by 30 June.
Judging by the statement it put out, the EU appears to be inclined to follow the British model with regard to Huawei. Member states were asked to strengthen security requirements, assess risk profiles of suppliers, apply relevant restrictions for suppliers considered to be high risk, and to ensure diversification of vendors.
Member states will be allowed to make their own decision as to suppliers but the common set of measures and the fact that there are only three big suppliers - Ericsson and Nokia are the other two - means that the same gear will probably be seen across the continent.
"This will make a positive difference. But only if we can make our networks secure. Only then will the digital changes benefit all citizens.”
