China’s tech sector started advancing with the success of Huawei, posing a steady growth not only in the domain of cloud services but also in the field of artificial intelligence. Huawei smartphones are known to be the widely obtained and preferred by people all over the world despite political malice towards the brand. The company, still today, stands tall because of its excellent telecom network equipment and is presently planning to support the rise of fastest 5G networks, making data transmission speedy and easier.
However, speculations are rife that the US agency which scrutinizes government matters, on Wednesday, delivered an interim rule that proposed a ban on the federal purchases of telecommunications equipment from five Chinese companies, including Huawei.
US alleged Huawei for stealing intellectual property and on the grounds of espionage,
in short, blacklisted the company based on security risks.
On the other hand, Huawei has opposed repeatedly, saying it is controlled by Chinese government, military, or intelligence services. It has also pressed a lawsuit against the US government over the restrictions in the defense policy bill.
Huawei addressed in a statement that it “continues to challenge the constitutionality of the ban in federal court.”
Meanwhile, India is due to organize trials for installing a next-generation 5G cellular network in the next few months, but in a dilemma, as to whether to invite Chinese telecom equipment maker Huawei in their 5G proceedings, telecoms minister Ravi Shankar Prasad has remarked. As China has warned India of ‘reverse sanctions ‘ if China is hindered from participating in the upcoming 5G trials.
Though Indian companies, don’t have that big a role to play in the Chinese Republic, nonetheless, firms like Infosys, TCS, Mahindra & Mahindra possess a strong foothold there in supplying financial services and outsourcing.
Therefore, a potential row over Huawei could lead to unstable relationships between India and China, as both the countries have been trying hard to tie knots, in order to keep aside their territorial disputes, without causing them to intensify.
No matter what, a high-level committee, after a profound investigation, has come up with the conclusion that they have found no evidence that Huawei used as ‘back-door’ programmes or malware to collect data, as told by Reuters to the sources.
On that note, last month, New Delhi said it would approve Huawei and ZTE for the 5G trials, expected later this year.
