In the middle of a trade war between the United States and China, the Huawei company has been involved in different espionage accusations. The Trump administration has blacklisted them and even prohibits their companies from having commercial relations with the Chinese. To make matters worse, it threatens other countries to impose sanctions if they do not restrict the use of Huawei. All of this is sparking a wave of bans in various countries around the world.
Another NO to Huawei 5G
The United Kingdom had almost decided to ban the use of Huawei on its 5G networks and has finally complied with the forecasts. He UK government has just confirmed its position regarding the use of Huawei technology for the deployment of 5G. This is none other than to prohibit the use of any equipment by the seller, prohibiting their presence in the country from this year.
From the British government they explain that 5G will change the country, but that it will only do so if it instills confidence and its infrastructure is built on this premise. Continuing with the sanctions imposed by the US on Huawei and following the advice of its committee of security experts they have decided remove completely to the Chinese firm of its fifth generation networks.
Starting next year, new equipment from Huawei will not be installed and will be given to operators a term of 7 years to completely eliminate the presence of the Chinese firm from their networks. From Huawei they consider that this is a disappointing decision for any citizen of the United Kingdom and that it threatens the country to slow down the arrival of this technology.
Spain sows doubt in its operators
While the United Kingdom has made a decision, like other countries, in Spain we still do not know if operators will be able to use Huawei equipment to deploy 5G. When we are a few months away from the 700 MHz auction and with the massive deployment of technology starting in 2021, uncertainty is taking over our market. Currently, a project of 5G security law.
