Huawei outraged by US government statements

We all know about the conflict between Huawei and the US government, which flared up in the middle of last year and led to the fact that many doors were closed for the Chinese manufacturer to cooperation with American (and not only) companies. While the scandal either intensified or sluggishly flowed, the parties constantly exchanged jabs at each other, and the sanctions were either weakened, then reinforced again. Recently, the US government has once again spoken to the address Huawei. This time, the essence of the accusations came down to the fact that the telecommunications equipment of the latter has a “backdoor” that allows users to gain access to communication.

The company does not stop fighting.

To make the conversation more substantive, if you are not aware, let me remind you that Huawei deals not only with smartphones, on the sale of which they have grown very much lately. They had a base that allowed them to reach such heights in this matter.

Long before they made the first smartphone, the company released a push-button phone. It happened in the early 2000s, but that device did not reach serious heights, although some models were really iconic. For example, it was Huawei who was the first to use 3G technology in their phones.

But the history of the company itself began long before that, when in 1987 Ren Renfei, who was previously an officer in the People's Liberation Army of China, created a company to manufacture telecommunications equipment. Many associate him in this way with the government of the country, but it would be foolish to assume that this is the proof of his connection with the party. Even if it exists, it could arise at any moment, and for this it is not at all necessary to be an officer.

Telecommunication equipment Huawei is indeed everywhere and almost all major cellular operators operate on it. This is why the accusations by the US government seem so universal. Nevertheless, the company's management does not agree with them and speaks out sharply against such accusations, calling them illogical and shameful.

The largest edition in which this information was published also went to.

“This reflects The Wall Street Journal's bias towards Huawei and undermines its credibility,” Huawei said in a statement.

Representatives of the company assure that the company's ability to access operators' networks is nothing more than speculation, which has no foundation at all. According to their assurances, only operators who operate equipment manufactured Huawei have the ability to receive and process subscriber data, and no one else.

In addition to a sharp defense, a sharp attack in the direction of the United States followed. Company representatives said that the United States needs to pay attention to itself, since it is they who monitor users of networks and equipment around the world.

“As evidenced by the Snowden leaks, the United States secretly gains access to telecommunications networks around the world by monitoring other countries for some time,” the company said in a statement.

It is also reported that Huawei has not only been accessing users' equipment and devices recently, but has been doing so for the past ten years.

“We have evidence that Huawei has the ability to access confidential and personal information in the systems it operates and sells around the world,” said National Security Advisor Robert O'Brien.

Unfortunately, no specific “names” have been sounded, and we do not know which operators and in which countries were exposed to the danger that the US government officials say, but it is reported that this began with the introduction of 4G equipment.

As you can see, Huawei does not want to give up and does not admit the accusations, which are, to put it mildly, strange. We do not see any evidence, but we only get accusations of the Chinese manufacturer that he is spying.

At the same time, representatives of the company assure that such surveillance is, in principle, impossible and many operators agree with them. If you believe them, then any attempt to gain access to the equipment will be immediately detected.

After all, if it's so simple, and even if you can get easy access to telecom operators' data through the backdoor, why can't attackers do it? They are also not fools, but as hackers do not fight, and the networks of operators and their work are considered one of the most secure systems.

Who is right? Perhaps someday we will find out, but so far there is only undercover fuss, from which few of us will benefit. Therefore, I want it all to end sooner, the guilty (if any) were punished, and we got back fair competition without administrative leverage.
