The US espionage claims and Mobile World Congress 2019
Huawei has been in hot water since the US espionage claims over the company equipment. There is some renewed pressure as 12 US senators have now asked the government to ban Huawei solar invertors in the US. It was also expected that Mr Trump might issue an executive order regarding the Huawei ban before Mobile World Congress 2019. However, no new announcement has been made so far.
Outside the US, conditions are getting better for Huawei particularly due to Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019, held at Barcelona.
Huawei stance in Mobile World Congress 2019
Huawei’s Chairman Guo Ping participated in the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019 and provided further explanation regarding Huawei’s equipment security. He explained the 12 cybersecurity’s evaluation and assessment indicators and claimed that Huawei topped in 9 indicators while performing above the average in the other three.
Despite all the controversies and bans, Huawei is still considered the main supplier of 5G equipment. MWC proved to be a better platform for Huawei as it provided an opportunity to clarify all the security concerns against it to key global players in the telecom industry. Huawei also signed various partnership deals with various countries and companies particularly related to 5G infrastructures.
