Reference News Network reported on April 11 that since last year, Huaweis United States has been ironclad to be banned. Recently, it has been very helpless. The United States has been calling on other countries not to use Huaweis products to build 5G networks, but many countries apparently ignored its warning.

According to Reuters on April 4, the United States admitted that many countries had not heeded its warning about the possible security risks of allowing Huawei to participate in the construction of 5G mobile communication networks. This trend is particularly evident in Southeast Asia. Even American allies are working with Huawei and will launch 5G networks in the next few years.

Thailand launched Huawei 5G test platform in Chunwuli in February. The Thai government said that Huaweis 5G service was chosen to offset potential concerns about network security due to its cheaper price. Malaysias leading telecommunications and digital service company Maxis signed a memorandum of understanding with Huawei to cooperate and accelerate the development of 5G. Philippine Global Telecom Company is also cooperating with Huawei to launch the 5G test platform. National 5G network.

As we all know, in the countries that threaten to boycott Chinas 5G communication equipment, the United States occupies the core leading position, and the attitude of the Five Eye Alliance which is closely related to the United States has gradually attracted more and more attention. Now, however, the opinions of members of the Five-Eye Alliance are increasingly divergent. Compared with the United States and Australia, Britain, one of the members of the alliance, has signed 5G orders with Huawei by its domestic telecom operators. For example, Huawei has signed 5G cooperation agreements with BT Group. Vodafone, a British-based multinational mobile phone operator, has 4G and 5G cooperation agreements with Huawei and ZTE. In mid-February, the National Network Security Centre (NCSC) concluded that the risks of using Huaweis communications equipment in 5G networks could be effectively controlled.

Coincidentally, in February this year, New Zealand also made an appearance that Huawei had never been out of the countrys 5G competition. In testimony to the New Zealand Parliamentary Intelligence and Security Committee on the 20th of the same month, Hampton, Director-General of the New Zealand Government Communications Security Bureau (GCSB), said, I promise that I will never be under direct or indirect pressure from either side when making a decision. Although we share information with Five Eye Alliance partners, there is no pressure from partners (public or private) to request or request that any 5G construction suppliers be banned. In an interview with Chinese media at the end of March during his visit to China, New Zealand Prime Minister Aden reiterated that New Zealand had not banned China 5G and would not change its national policy because of the influence of the United States.

For several months, the United States has been pressing its allies, such as the United Kingdom and Germany, on the grounds that Huaweis 5G equipment has security problems, hoping to draw other Western countries together to exclude Huawei from 5G construction. On April 4, U.S. Secretary of State Pompeo warned that if European countries cooperated with Chinese technology companies, they would soon be divorced from U.S. intelligence. But on April 4, Switzerlands leading operator, Senrice Communications, joined hands with Huawei to announce the provision of Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) services for the first batch of 5G users. Senrice uses Hua5G end-to-end network products and terminals to achieve rapid deployment of 5G network in Switzerland. On April 9, Hungarian Finance Minister Mikhail Vorgo issued a statement on the official website of the Hungarian government, welcoming Huawei Corporation of China, which Hungary regards as its IT strategic partner.

In spite of the fierce situation, Huawei did not stop it from breaking through: in 2018, Huawei signed more than 30 5G commercial contracts, accounting for nearly half of the global 5G orders, and more than 40,000 5G base stations were sent to all parts of the world. So what are the reasons why many countries choose Huawei? The Daily Telegraph reported the voice of the British telecommunications industry that banning Huaweis 5G infrastructure from entering the UK would reduce investment in the UK, hit consumers and undermine the UKs economic status.

According to the industry group Mobile Communications UK, which represents UK network operators such as O2, EE, Vodafone and 3 Telecom, restrictions on the use of Huawei devices in the region will delay the launch of fast network technology by 18 months to two years, the report said. The report said the delay would cost the UK economy 4.5 billion to 6.8 billion pounds (1 pound, about 8.8 yuan).

The importance of 5G technologys leading position in achieving the economic benefits of this technology cannot be underestimated, the report said. If any restrictions are imposed on Huawei, many of the benefits associated with 5G technology leadership may be lost forever.

In October this year, ITU will hold a meeting to finalize the 5G international standard. There was a voice that Huaweis concerns would affect the standard. But on April 5, Zhao Houlin, secretary-general of the alliance, told the media in Geneva, Switzerland, From a technical point of view, I do not think (Huaweis concerns) will have an impact on the process of formulating 5G international standards. He believes that Huaweis equipment has been used in many parts of the world, including Europe, but so far, no member of the International Telecommunication Union has raised the issue of Huaweis equipment security. Zhao Houlin said: Huawei is one of the few companies in the world that can build 5G networks. I support Huaweis equal bidding opportunities. In the course of operation, if you find any problems, you can accuse Huawei. But I dont think its fair to blacklist Huawei without any evidence. From coercion and crowding out to hopelessness, the U.S. road to ban Huawei is becoming more and more lonely. According to a report on South Koreas Newspim website on April 3, many US allies have expressed support for Huawei, and the US-led anti-China alliance has cracked. The United States also seems to recognize reality. Germanys Frankfurt Reporting reported on April 7 that after Germany announced its 5G network regulations, the U.S. government no longer required Germany to ban the use of communications equipment by Chinas communications giant Huawei in the construction of 5G networks.
