It is an interesting debate:  UK have not banished them as such at the present time.  But other nations have, lots of Geopolitics going on here in the Huawei space.  If you want a loan it seems, go to the Chinese, but then they have conditions.

Well there you are at long last UK has banned Huawei from the Core network and must remove it:

This is a question of trust and integrity, pure and basic along with geopolitics as someone aptly put it previously in another conversation.

Re: Is Huawei a Genuine Security Threat?

Regardless of fears over backdoors and surveillance, I find it interesting that the primary objection of the main report is that Huawei is simply too sloppy.  Time to market trumps QA and reliability, and their version control seems to be abysmal.

 

Exactly the objections we have been making over so much of the tech market over so many years ...

Re: Is Huawei a Genuine Security Threat?

Well perhaps Vodafone found the insecure Telnet in the back of the Huawei routers?   Really?

Is this sufficient for USA to collapse the Five Eyes Agreement if, UK, New Zealand and Australia attack Huawei to the their proposed 5G networks? 

 

I wonder what effect that would have on terrorism and the sharing of information in a timely manner?

Well, surely having a telnet backdoor in all the routers in all the 5 Eyes countries
would make for a *much* freer flow of infor ... oh ... wait ...
