Huawei gets an invitation from India for 5G trials, results in telecom security concerns

World’s largest manufacturer of telecom equipment, Huawei Technologies, is in talks after India’s invitation for 5G trials. While the company has been termed as a cybersecurity threat and prohibited from building 5G networks in the US, Australia and New Zealand, the invitation to participate in 5G trials by India has raised some concern in security and technology establishments.

Earlier, Huawei was banned in India for eight months after the home ministry’s concern of security threat saying that the imported telecom equipment could contain spywares and let foreign governments to intercept calls, remotely control networks and leak sensitive data. India hasn’t still been able to make much advancement in the telecom sector, but back then, the dangers of spyware were from the Chinese 3G equipment; now the technology standard has changed to 5G equipment.

Intelligence agencies from the West, since a long time, have feared that Huawei installs backdoors in its telecom hardware. In defence, Jay Chen, the CEO of Huawei India, said that the security issues debate is raised only due to the fact that Huawei is dominating the 5G market and is way ahead of the Western companies. He also mentioned that its operations are going on in other countries like Germany, France and Japan, and the business over there runs perfectly fine.

Moreover, Huawei has complied with the Indian government regulations as part of the telecom security in order to build trust and confidence among the stakeholders. India’s Chief Security officer for Huawei, Debabrata Nayak said that there has been no single incident where the company has been caught in any wrong.
