BT to strip China's Huawei from core networks, limit 5G access

BT will strip Huawei devices from its 4G network over the next two years

5G networks are coming, but Huawei is getting shut out several markets.

"This is a normal and expected activity, which we understand and fully support", the Chinese group said in a statement, as quoted by the newswire.

However, Huawei's statement on the BT/EE decision downplayed its significance, reading: "Huawei has been working with BT for nearly 15 years".

BT bought EE for £12.5bn in 2016, which used Huawei equipment in its core 3G and 4G mobile networks at the time, but has since been working on a programme to remove the hardware.

And on Monday, intelligence service MI6's chief Alex Younger said Britain needed to decide how comfortable it was using Chinese-owned technologies within its communications infrastructure.

FBI Director Chris Wray said their deep concerns about the risks of firms "beholden to foreign governments" to obtain "positions of power inside our telecommunications networks".

Earlier this year, Australia too banned Huawei from supplying 5G equipment, also citing security risks.

A month prior to the report, BT had announced a new partnership with Huawei to explore the development of 5G at BT's labs in Ipswich and other locations around the UK.

Children and young people under the age of 20 already travel for free and many qualify for an annual mPass, which costs €150. And secondary school students are provided with free shuttles between their places of study and their home.


Both Huawei and ZTE have repeatedly denied these claims. It had revenue of £72 billion previous year.

Mobile edge computing could be a major opportunity for telecom operators in the 5G era, allowing them to reduce the signaling delay on data networks and provide new types of service. Huawei later supplied components for BT's national rollout of fiber optic broadband.

But BT's decision to also join the number of countries and firms restricting the use of Huawei is another serious blow for the world's largest telecom equipment maker.

Huawei will no longer be at the "control plane" of BT's network, instead restricted to the "periphery", as the United Kingdom telecoms company continues to utilise its masts and antennas.

In a written statement, BT said: "In 2016, following the acquisition of EE, we began a process to remove Huawei equipment from the core of our 3G and 4G mobile networks, as part of network architecture principles in place since 2006".

Following a review, former defence secretary Malcolm Rifkind suggested that the cyber security experts should not be appointed by Huawei, and recommended that GCHQ play a role.

Huawei is faced with allegations from certain western countries that the Chinese government uses its hardware to spy on its adversaries.

"We have never had a cyber security-related incident".
