Spain Telefónica has decided to remove Huawei from its 5G network strategy
Huawei, the Chinese technology giant and smartphone manufacturer that has even taken a bite of the apple, is lately on everyone’s lips.
On the one hand there is the United States veto to its products, where the president of the country, Donald Trump, accuses the company of being a threat against security, ensuring that China uses the terminals and different products of the Asian company to spy on other territories. And since last May, the Trump administration put the Asian giant in a black list of companies preventing them from doing business with each other.
Telefónica has decided to eliminate Huawei from its 5G network.
With the intention of reinventing itself, José María Álvarez-Pallete, current president of Telefónica, announced that they will focus on a smaller market, giving full priority to the markets that continue to work financially, these being the market in Spain, Germany, UK and Brazil , which account for more than 80% of income.
Telefónica’s strategy will focus on a type of multi-core model to eliminate exclusive dependence, thus being several manufacturers who provide the services with the possibility of having their piece of cake. One of the advantages of having this independence is that generalized incidents are avoided in the event of a generalized incident. Although it is not yet known for sure what these manufacturers will be.
However, Telefónica has already detailed that during the first stage of the deployment of 5G networks, the core provided by Huawei, the current 4G network provider in the Spanish and German market, will continue to be used, qualifying that for the massive deployment of the 5G network , which is expected in 2022, a different core is required.
