Huawei declined in favor of the government & # 39; United States after kungressali report from 2012 called threat to national security because of concerns that the Chinese government could & # 39; forcing the company to give access to sensitive data. Just before the elections & # 39; mid-term & # 39; this year, the country banned even the government staff to use the equipment Huawei and ZTE.
WSJ says the officers & # 39; United States informed representatives from Germany, Japan and Italy in an effort to deter both governmental as well as networks operating commercially from using components & # 39; Huawei (and ZTE). In addition to discussing the possibility of & # 39; Beijing forced the company to comply with requests for access to data, the authorities allegedly highlighted the susceptibility of & # 39; 5G to cyber attacks and espionage as well.
See, of the current cell towers are separated from the "core" of their network systems responsible for the transfer of voice and data traffic. Towers of 5G cells, however, will have hardware capable of doing some tasks currently carried out by leading systems. While the US military bases have satellites and their own telecommunications networks, are only used for sensitive communications and most of the voice traffic and military data continues through commercial networks.
An official told the publication:
"We are going to countries around the world about our concern about the ċiberutratturi in telecommunications infrastructure. How are seeking to move to 5G, reminding about those concerns. There are additional complexities for 5G networks to make them more vulnerable to cyber attacks. "
Remains to be seen whether countries decide to take the advice of the government & # 39; United States and prohibit Huawei like Australia already has. Huawei is the leading supplier of equipment 5G, after all, and offers customizable products at lower prices than its rivals & # 39 ;.
