Starc4Sys is the first provider to receive the approval of the Supreme Council of National Defense (CSAT) for the use of technologies, equipment, and software in information and communication infrastructures of national interest, as well as in 5G networks in Romania, according to a decision signed on Friday, January 7, by the PM of the government, Prime Minister Nicolae Ciuca. This is the first opinion obtained under the 5G law enacted last year. The provisions of this law, adopted after the insistence of the Washington administration, exclude the Chinese from Huawei from the 5G competition and, moreover, from the telecom networks in the country.
The CSAT decision on the proper approval of the documentation related to 5G infrastructure equipment submitted by Starc4Sys took place in December last year.
Starc4Sys company has 100% Romanian capital and started operating on the local market in 2013, and since 2015 it is part of the Association of Romanian Defense Manufacturers (PATROMIL).
The opinion obtained by Starc4Sys is the first effect of the 5G law promulgated last year by President Iohannis. On June 11, 2021, President Klaus Iohannis signed the decree enacting the Law on Security of 5G Networks, a normative act that could exclude the Chinese from Huawei from the networks of communications operators.
The equipment and programs of a 5G manufacturer that does not obtain the CSAT approval can only be used for 5 years in the core of telecom networks, and the rest of the equipment for 7 years. The adoption of this law is one of the conditions for the launch of 5G technology, through which the state hopes to attract over 500 million euros.
