The New 5G Rollout Is Now Under the Microscope by EU
In a significant development by the European Union, the proposed rollout of high-speed innovative 5G networking will now be under the microscope. The move is certain to have a significant influence on Huawei, 5G technology’s dominant firm.
Fremont, CA: A public report by the European Union has been released, which enumerated a multitude of challenges in connection with the 5G technology.
Increased scrutiny with respect to 5G implementation in the European region started way back in March. The initial attempts were centered on addressing American pressure to impose a ban on Huawei from implementing a new telecommunication infrastructure in the region.
The concerns expressed by the EU with respect to this recent development include the insertion of hidden software, hardware or certain flaws into the 5G network. The China-headquartered firm is among the world’s biggest providers of telecommunications devices, networking gears, smartphones and much more.
The other proposed risks include the possibility of uncontrolled software updates, undocumented testing features and backdoors left in the production version of networking products.
The American security experts have long been worried about Huawei’s dominance over the emerging telecommunication technologies. U.S regulators and security officials have commenced seeking responses on the probable threats Huawei might have.
Other countries, such as Australia, had also banned China’s Huawei. Amidst countries banning the network, there are talks on its probable benefits s well.
Several factors have increased media coverage and discussions on the Chinese telecommunications firm. Concerns on Huawei’s business practices have been at its peak amid the American-China trade war discussions.
Also, a multitude of countries and enterprises across the globe are actively considering 5G wireless rollouts. Additionally, the U.S. Department of Justice’s case opposing Huawei is now known to all.
Considering all these variables, countries across the globe are trying to arrive at decisions regarding permitting Huawei to participate in 5G network across the respective countries. However, China is likely to continue its efforts to highlight Huawei’s capability to sell into international markets.
