UK report accuses Huawei of collusion with China


Recommended Posts

Lawmakers in the UK have urged the country to speed up the removal of Huawei’s equipment from its 5G mobile infrastructure. The UK’s Defense Committee has published a lengthy report, urging the government to look if the ban can be pushed from 2027 to 2025. Officials say that there is “clear evidence” of collusion “between the company and the Chinese Communist Party apparatus.” It also recommends that other nations work together to rebuild the information technology manufacturing capacity that was lost when so much of this industry was originally outsourced to China. 

 

The report begins by listing the usual attack lines against the company, including founder Ren Zhengfei’s Communist Party membership and work for the People’s Liberation Army. (Something that Huawei has long since claimed are not relevant to his entrepreneurship.). It adds that, as a Chinese company, it could be asked to conduct espionage in compliance with the country’s 2017 National Intelligence Law. And that while the UK’s National Cyber Security Center had “not seen any specific evidence” of hostile acts, its “standing assumption” is that Huawei will insert backdoors into its products. Previous reports have pointed out flaws in Huawei’s engineering that, while not intentional backdoors, could be used in that manner.

Looks like things are getting worse for Huawei. Seems like this will be a growing trend for Chinese tech companies given the rules they are forced to abide by.

I would have thought Nokia would have been the natural choice anyway, they're in Finland.

 

We need not ignore Telefonaktiebolaget L M Ericsson who is also fighting for the 5G cake.  I had a look at some financials before investing in both Nokia and Ericsson and Huawei will not suffer as much as people think. They will implement 5G in Asia and that is a highly modernised part of the world. We also have Samsung who recently won in the US and was chosen by Verizon at the expense of Nokia.
