Chinese tech giants Huawei and ZTE face global setback – ThePrint – ANIFeed


beijing [China]Jul 31 (ANI): Chinese telecommunications titan Huawei Technologies has faced the toughest times in its international business in recent years after the company’s alleged involvement with the Chinese government sparked protests in many country due to security threats.

Huawei’s controversial involvement with the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) and security agencies has sparked protests, especially in countries that are either able to upgrade their telecommunications infrastructure independently or are close allies of the first, reported the European Times.

Canada has become the latest country to designate Huawei as a national security issue. Ottawa accused the company of installing backdoors in its products and services that provide the company with unauthorized access to its user data.


It is relevant to mention here that in 2018, Canadian authorities arrested Huawei’s top executive, Meng Wanzhou, on charges of allegedly deceiving banks about the company’s business dealings in Iran, in defiance of US sanctions. .

The United States led the debate on security threats related to Huawei’s alleged involvement with the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) in 2019, the European Times reported.

It was one of the first countries to ban Huawei’s 5G trials in the U.S. telecommunications equipment management and telecommunications industry.

The United States has alleged that the Chinese tech giant is actively involved in stealing American intellectual property and technology specifications.

In 2019, the US Department of Justice (DoJ) alleged that Huawei was stealing trade secrets from Bellevue, the Washington-based T-Mobile company.

In the same case, the DoJ released a list of crimes against company officials, including money laundering, conspiracy, wire fraud, obstruction of justice, and more.

Therefore, in May 2019, the United States banned its companies from using telecommunications equipment manufactured by Huawei. It also added Huawei to the blacklist of companies that were not allowed to do business with American companies, the European Times reported.

Australia in 2018 became one of the first to completely ban the deployment of Huawei’s 5G equipment as well as its engagements with ZTE, another Chinese telecommunications giant, immediately followed by Japan in 2018 when it also banned Huawei and ZTE from its domestic telecommunications equipment. manufacturing industry.

In 2020, India followed suit by deciding to keep Huawei and ZTE out of its 5G rollout. Prior to that in 2018, the UK government also banned Huawei from rolling out its 5G equipment. Furthermore, he ruled out that Huawei equipment within the 4G infrastructure will also be removed from the country by 2020.

Out of the ‘Five Eyes’ alliance group, 2018 New Zealand itself had banned Huawei from the country’s first 5G network, following Australia’s move.

In Southeast Asia in 2019, Malaysia announced that its security standards will dictate Huawei’s engagement with its domestic companies from time to time, which means concerns about Huawei’s equipment, reported the European Times.

Also in the Middle East, countries that use Huawei equipment are under US radar, and Washington has repeatedly flagged concerns to its Gulf allies about the security risks associated with the company.

With Huawei’s dominance in the development and facilitation of 5G networks, China can access any information it wishes to acquire from any network or country it chooses. Huawei has a long history of providing fragile security for its consumer countries, with a common theme of security breaches, routing of data to unauthorized locations, and backdoor entries into software and equipment.

The tech giant has faced a fair amount of heat over incidents involving information breaches, data leaks, compromised software, backdoor entries, and routing of data to unknown locations. For this reason, not only governments but also other companies are rethinking their ties with Huawei due to concerns about data hacking and cybersecurity.

Apple alleged that Huawei stole its trade secrets for commercial gain. Cisco repeatedly cited its 2003 case when it accused Huawei of stealing its source code to build Huawei’s network routers, the European Times reported.

In 2019, Nokia also decided to replace Huawei from its core infrastructure and partnered with other companies like Intel and Marvel technologies.

In January 2019, an unincorporated entity, the University of Oxford, announced that it would not accept any donations or research grants for Huawei research projects at the University.

The European market is the largest market for Huawei’s telecommunications and mobile phone sales, but the company’s challenges in the market are increasing as, after the debate on national security issues, several countries have conducted more scrutiny. deepened and halted the company’s activities in the European 5G market, the European Times reported.

Private telecom companies in European countries are opting for other companies to build their 5G network instead of Huawei. France and Germany have clarified that their telecom operators will not be able to renew their licenses with Huawei after they expire in 2028.

Since 2018, major Chinese tech companies, primarily Huawei, have faced the heat of the US-China tech war. While other companies in China have suffered a setback from their own government in recent years, Huawei continues to enjoy Chinese state patronage due to its strategic advantages and associations with China’s Belt Initiative. and Road.

The extent to which US concerns over Huawei have affected China’s tech expansion plans is not yet known, but it’s safe to say it has certainly affected the company’s international operations and its global position. (ANI)
