The Recent Huawei Storm Explained

The Recent Huawei Storm Explainedby 👩‍💻 Stephanie Boyd

Huawei, a leading name in Chinese telecoms, has slowly grown to become one of the most profitable technology providers and specialists in the world as of 2018. Despite their monumental growth to compete against the likes of Samsung and Apple at the top of the leagues, however, they have come under severe scrutiny for a number of reasons – and it appears to be related to security. Not only has Huawei’s CFO Meng Wanzhou been arrested with regard to fraud charges, but it’s emerged that a number of international authorities are growing concerned over the firm’s tech.

Among those countries worried, both Australia and the US have advised that they will not be allowing Huawei in on their future development of mobile technology – as has New Zealand, who outright blocked the supply of Huawei equipment to local mobile coverage, according to BBC News. Add Japan to this list, now – as the country’s government has advised that they will no longer be considering the purchase of equipment from either Huawei or ZTE in future.

These international fears stem from growing concerns that Huawei may be providing China with a valuable spy network through its hardware sold overseas. As the second biggest name in smartphone manufacture worldwide, critics are concerned that the Chinese government could order the firm to support hacking or even gain access to sensitive records and networks from overseas. Huawei is, on the face of things, a private firm without links to the Chinese state – however, its founder, Ren Zhengfei, is thought to have links to both the historic Communist Party and was a former army engineer.

Huawei recently agreed to upgrade its technology to protect against hacking in line with UK intelligence demands, following rising concerns over the security of Huawei devices and the role they may play in global surveillance. The hardware supported by the firm continues to face scrutiny and review by security specialists as far flung as Canada and the EU – though it’s thought Germany will not be banning any suppliers outright with regard to 5G.

Therefore – while Huawei remains to grow – and spend – on an epic scale, many international bodies continue to view their growing tech with caution. Not much more information is available at present, but while such devices and their hardware are continuing to line up for forthcoming 5G connectivity, it seems their worldwide growth will be stunted.
