Huawei says it could take 5 years to resolve hardware issues

The move, reported Thursday by Politico, would see the USA doing what it's been pressuring its allies to do: shut Huawei, the world's biggest telecoms equipment manufacturer, out of new networks that will support the upcoming "fifth generation" (5G) of mobile connectivity. He emphasized that "we are always willing to accept the supervision and suggestions of all European governments, customers, and partners".

A Huawei spokesman said: "We can not add to what is outlined in the letter, where we have explained our position in full to the House of Commons Committee; and we are continuing to work closely with the authorities in the United Kingdom".

According to a report by Reuters, the company has previously offered & constructed security labs in Britain & Germany with the intention of rebuilding confidence in the brand and showing that the company's equipment & consumer electronics do not contain back doors or spyware for the Chinese intelligence service.

Huawei has been under great scrutiny in recent times, but remember that ZTE was also heavily put under the microscope not long before. Andrus Ansip, European Commission vice president for digital affairs said the law increases the risk in dealing with Chinese companies. However, the Federal Network agency is working on a series of security measures, and the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) will set up a certification and licensing system for products to use in the 5G network.

Huawei has repeatedly denied that its telecommunication technology poses a threat to the U.S. security.

Huawei has spent decades building a strong presence in scores of markets around the world, including the United Kingdom, helped by reliable hardware and competitive pricing.

Governments in Europe, Japan, and Australia are also considering or have ordered bans on Huawei equipment.

The letter was in response to concerns raised by the Huawei Cyber Security Evaluation Centre (HCSEC) in its annual report, a body that includes Huawei, UK operators and UK Government officials.

With the development of the new 5G networks underway, some countries have banned Huawei from competing in providing equipment.

"Our solid track record in security is our strongest evidence [against the security allegations]", said Ryan Ding, the head of Huawei's carrier business group. "It is a complicated and involved process". National Security Council spokesman Garrett Marquis said the US has been "working across government and with allies and like-minded partners to mitigate risk in the deployment of 5G and other communications infrastructure".

The big question now is whether Huawei will be shut out of additional Western 5G networks, decisions that would risk inflaming tensions with Beijing.
