no longer allow Huawei, the mobile phone company
the second largest in the world, accessing operating system security updates
This means that the new Huawei device will lose access to multiple applications.
this was taken by Google after the President of the United States, Donald Trump
announced a national emergency last week "to protect the
United States computers of foreign enemies. "Analysts believe the policy is" intentionally directed to Huawei. "
In addition to producing cell phones, Huawei also manufactures communications equipment. Huawei is estimated to control about 40-60% of the global network.
Here are five things that make the West very concerned about Huawei.
1. Super fast 5G network
Huawei is currently negotiating with many countries to provide the super-fast fifth-generation network system, the 5G.
This system is so fast that it is ideal for use in products such as standalone cars.
The 5G infrastructure uses Huawei products, competitors claim
Huawei "can read messages sent over the network or even
turn off the fabric, which will certainly cause serious interference. "
before President Trump issues an executive order, the US government
urged its allies not to use Huawei products.
this is focused on a group commonly called "Five Eyes" which consists
on America, Great Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
the country has very close intelligence cooperation
confidential information, often electronically.
threat to stop sharing sensitive information if the network is active
England, Canada, Australia and New Zealand use 5G equipment
made by Huawei.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that if there were countries using Huawei's 5G network products, "we will not share any more information."
Huawei on several occasions has rejected espionage charges against the Chinese government.
those who criticized said that the law in China was not
allowing companies to refuse requests from the government to obtain
Government concerns about accessing company data, among others, are based on practices that apply to the US itself.
The contractor of the US Security Agency, the NSA, Edward Snowden, revealed that
US intelligence agencies cut data pertaining to technology companies
including Google and Yahoo.
Outside of security interests, of course there are trade benefits if many countries boycott Huawei's 5G equipment.
2. Finger robot scandal
this is related to Huawei officials accused of stealing finger robots,
the robot in charge of touching a finger on the screen of a mobile phone when it is
leaving the design laboratory of the T-Mobile telecommunications company.
This official alleged that the robot "accidentally fell into his bag".
T-Mobile at the time had cooperation with
Huawei. The German company did not accept the reason and brought
your case to court.
Email communication requires employees
"does not act alone and is likely to be governed by
senior executive in China. "
This was one of the reasons for the arrest of Huawei Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou in Canada at the request of the US last year.
3. Cooperation "veiled with Iran"
Meng rejected the allegations and tried to cancel the US extradition request. Another charge against him is that Huawei "has cooperation with Iran."
Allegedly it was part of Iran's efforts to avoid US sanctions through a company called Skycom. He was accused of lying to the banks and the US government about cooperation with Iran.
Meng, the daughter of Huawei's founder, has denied the accusation and could be sentenced to 30 years in prison if extradited and convicted by a US court.
4. An anti-broken phone display case
Another case that makes the US worry about being associated with an "anti-split screen" BloombergHuawei was investigated by the FBI for allegedly violating international arms trading regulations.
This case began when the company of Achan
Semiconductor held talks with Huawei to provide the screen
super strong, made by attaching a layer of artificial gem
On the screen, the Huawei screen returned to the next months in a state of serious damage.
suspect Huawei brought this sample out of America, a practice that
prohibited by international regulations, because this sample has the potential to
Used to test laser weapons, Huaweri again rejected the FBI allegations.
5. inya There is no death
Despite several cases, along with Google's steps, Huawei is expected to remain a major global player,
For many countries, especially in Asia and Africa, the price of technology products offered by Huawei is much cheaper than American and European companies. This price aspect ensures that Huawei still dominates global participation.
Even in Britain, the closest ally in the US, there is still debate about whether the 5G infrastructure should use Huawei's products.
British defense recently fired for entering components
made by Huawei in "areas that are not very important."
