Huawei 5G equipment signs bullying in Canada

in #technology3 years ago

Red light on Huawei 5G equipment business. The company was opening up its supply to Canada, but the pressure from the United States has been growing.

Foreign media including Reuters reported that the US government is pressing to prevent Canada from using Huawei's 5G communications equipment. The use of Huawei equipment to build a Canadian 5G network could be difficult for the US to share.

According to the media, US National Security Advisor Robert O'Brien said, "If US allies use Huawei 5G telecommunications equipment such as Trojans, information sharing will be affected."

Canada has been considering using Huawei equipment to build 5G networks. This is because the damage caused by excluding Huawei equipment from the 5G network is significant. Canadian carriers Bell and Tellus have been building networks with Huawei's equipment for a long time, and if they don't use Huawei's equipment, the damage could be tens of millions of dollars.

But the US is under greater pressure, and Canada's concerns are likely to deepen. Justin Trudeau is also holding back the decision whether to use Huawei equipment to build 5G networks. It is said to have been announced since the federal election on October 21, but it has already passed a month.

Huawei is disadvantageous not only in Canada but also in Europe. This is because the EU agreed to consider non-technical factors, such as the legal framework of the country in which the manufacturer belongs, in selecting a 5G equipment supplier. It also stated that they should not rely on a single company by selecting various suppliers.

The plan, which was agreed by the EU ambassadors on the 23rd, did not mention a specific country or company, but it was interpreted as having China and Huawei in mind. The EU agreement will be approved at a meeting next month.

The United States has advised against the use of Huawei's telecommunications equipment for use in Chinese spying. In particular, it strongly demands allies and allies, including Korea and Europe.
