Concerned about security, the British government decided not to use Huawei equipment in its 5G network

Tram Ho

Earlier this year, the British government announced that it would allow Huawei to participate in the construction of 5G mobile network infrastructure in the country. Despite the United States’ constant warning and intimidation of security and security issues for Huawei’s telecommunications equipment.

However, according to a recent report of the Financial Times, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said there were technical problems, and would remove all of Huawei’s telecommunications equipment from the UK’s 5G network infrastructure. . This is a rather unexpected change, almost 180 degrees.

A report by the National Cyber ​​Security Center under the British Signal Intelligence Agency said Huawei is using “untrustworthy” technologies. The British government is preparing to issue a draft ban on the installation of Huawei telecommunications equipment for at least 6 months, and will eliminate existing equipment. By 2023, Huawei’s participation in the 5G network in the UK will be reduced to zero.

According to the Telegraph, the reason for the British government boycott of Huawei stemmed from the US ban. The ban makes it impossible for many U.S. technology companies to work with Huawei, so Huawei cannot use trusted U.S. technologies and resort to less secure alternatives.

Earlier, the British government still allowed Huawei to participate in developing the 5G network. However, Huawei is not allowed to engage in important areas such as government and military networks.
