BT to strip China's Huawei from core networks, limit 5G access

Huawei has been at the forefront of developing the 5G network

BT has said it will not use Huawei's equipment within the heart of its 5G mobile network when it is rolled out in the UK.

City A.M. understands BT has not banned Huawei from its 5G operation as a whole, only from bidding for its 5G core network contract.

British multinational telecommunications holding company BT Group plc. would reportedly be removing Huawei Technologies Co.'s equipment from its core 4G network within two years.

Fellow members Australia and the USA have also banned Chinese tech firms Huawei - and ZTE in the US - from their 5G networks over fears it could make national infrastructure accessible to the Chinese government.

Huawei is facing more and more setbacks when it comes to its network infrastructure hardware.

Huawei denies all allegations of links to the Chinese government. There are also questions about how independent of state influence any large Chinese company can be.

Mika Singh detained in Dubai for sending obscene pic to Brazilian teen
Sources informed Gulf News that Mika Singh sent the teenager indecent photos along with promising her a job in a Bollywood film. According to Republic TV , a 17-year-old Brazilian girl had accused him of sending an inappropriate picture.

Australia and New Zealand also announced this year that they would not allow Huawei to be involved in building next generation 5G systems in their countries.

However, Huawei's statement on the BT/EE decision downplayed its significance, reading: "Huawei has been working with BT for nearly 15 years".

Ltd. equipment out of its 3G and 4G core networks, inherited as part of the acquisition of EE, and will not consider using it as a 5G core network supplier.

"We need to decide the extent to which we are going to be comfortable with Chinese ownership of these technologies and these platforms in an environment where some of our allies have taken quite a definite position", Younger said from an event in Scotland. Huawei's competitors surely aren't too bothered by the storyline, but are careful to keep their own hands clean given their interest in serving the Chinese market.

"Huawei have been a trusted partner for Altice for many years, and we look forward to explore this revolutional new technology together for the benefit of our consumer and enterprise customers, as well as a way to promote new business models and services", said Altice Portugal's chief executive Alexandre Fonseca. Even though British intelligence has requested the United Kingdom government finalise its stance for or against Huawei, BT has stated that the recent move is due to wanting a uniform approach to its systems since acquiring EE in 2015. The HCSEC is monitored by a government oversight board that includes officials from the UK National Cyber Security Center.
