 LG U +: Huawei equipment does not pose a security threat and does not plan to exclude specific suppliers


We and Huawei have done everything we can to prove security, a LGU + spokesman said

South Korean industry experts said that considering the long-term business partnership between the two companies, if LGU + decides to replace Huawei products, there will be great losses.

LGU + will face equipment compatibility problems if it switches to other 5g equipment suppliers, because the company uses Huawei products to provide 4glte services, said Kim Jong Ki, a researcher at the Korea Institute of industrial economics and trade. Sudden changes will be costly and delay their 5g deployment plans.

The company currently uses not only Huaweis 5g equipment, but also 5g equipment from other major suppliers such as Samsung Electronics, Nokia Finland and Ericsson Sweden.

As of May this year, LGU + had 1.7 million 5g subscribers, while its competitors SK Telecom and KT had 3.1 million and 2.1 million 5g subscribers, respectively.

The three operators said last week that they would invest up to 25.7 trillion won (US $21.5 billion) to build a nationwide 5g network by 2022. LGU + is also under pressure from local operators, including SK Telecom and Korea Telecom, which are looking for new 5g equipment suppliers as they plan to test 5g on the 28ghz band by the end of this year. The 28ghz band can provide faster speed than the currently used 3.5GHz band. So far, LGU + is still silent about its new equipment plans. We havent decided on a supplier for the 28ghz band. Another LGU + spokesman said. He added that there were no plans to exclude any particular company. Samsung invests in lattice core to help expand German factories and open up new markets in Europe?
