Huawei has denied being a security risk or being under the direction of the Chinese government.

Following negotiations with Huawei and UK telecoms operators, fresh deadline extensions have been announced.

The government claimed that a limited number of operators had warned that the initial deadlines ran the danger of network breakdowns and customer interruption due to the epidemic and problems with the global supply chain.

It stated that providers should make every effort to fulfil the initial targets and predicted that the majority of them will.

Security threat

The Telecoms Security Act, which went into effect in November 2021, gives designated-vendor orders to all 35 UK telecom network providers, putting the directive to remove Huawei equipment on a legal grounding.

 

It enables the government to “increase the security of telecoms infrastructure and limit the usage of high-risk equipment,” according to Digital Secretary Michelle Donelan.

Since our phone and internet networks support so much of our daily lives and economy, she continued, “We must have faith in their security.

“The Telecoms Security Act guarantees we can be assured in the resilience of the everyday services on which we rely, and the legal requirements in this designated-vendor direction are a crucial element of the security journey,” said Dr. Ian Levy, technical director of the NCSC.

The government has classified Huawei as a high-risk supplier of 5G network hardware and services in a designation notice that also outlines all the reasons why the business poses a national security concern, including the effect of US sanctions.
