[스페셜경제= Dongsu Kim] Huawei has announced that while in the process of venturing into 5G technology territory, its $2bn allotment on cybersecurity for their new units will still take at least five years to fully address.

In a report by the BBC, the Chinese firm announces this amid Western countries’ fears that Huawei is endangering its users’ information by its compliance to China’s 2017 National Intelligence Law. Under that law, the government can gain access on Huawei’s users’ information, since it dictates that Huawei is obliged to “support, cooperate with, and collaborate in, national intelligence work.”

Although the firm has insisted that it had no direct ties to the government and that the firm would never willingly turn over that kind of information, the discussion remains a pertinent point to other Western countries, issuing warnings of Huawei’s upcoming 5G units.

President of Huawei’s carrier business group, Ryan Ding, says as much: "Were Huawei ever to engage in malicious behaviour, it would not go unnoticed - and it would certainly destroy our business." Ding also iterated, via a letter sent last week, that it would not allow any other organisation to make use of their tech for espionage activities, claiming that Huawei remained a “closely watched company.”

This Western solidarity against Huawei has already spread wide, too, so much so that aside from the United States, European countries like France and Germany are already discussing about keeping Huawei equipment at bay.

So far, Australia and New Zealand have officially sworn off the phone.

It’s worth to mention, though, that British authorities actually reported that there was no clear evidence that the phones were being used by the Chinese government to spy on its users, but that hasn’t stopped the US Justice Department of bombarding the firm with accusations about violating US sanctions.

The department has long since linked Iran with China, arguing that the two had been stealing technology from T-Mobile.

中 화웨이, 향후 5년간 20억 달러 투자한다

[스페셜경제= 김동수 기자] 화웨이가 향후 5년간 20억달러 규모의 투자를 진행한다.

이는 산업계 전반이 겪고 있는 보안 및 개인정보 문제를 해결하기 위함이다.

케빈 타오 화웨이 지속가능개발 위원회 이사 겸 부회장은 “화웨이는 디지털 기술의 혜택을 모든 개인, 가정 및 조직에 제공하고자 테크포올(TECH4ALL)이라는 글로벌 디지털포용 이니셔티브를 출범시켰다”며 “루랄스타 솔루션을 통해 2018년 말 기준 4000만명 농촌 주민들을 서로 연결했다”고 설명했다.

이와 관련 량화 화웨이 이사회 의장은 신규 칩셋, 시스템 소프트웨어, 전문 서비스, 첨단 하드웨어 및 발열 기술에 힘입어 5G 사이트당 전력 소비량은 업계 평균보다 약 20% 적다고 강조했다. 5G 에너지 효율성이 개선되면서 5G 친환경성은 더욱 강화될 예정이라는 것이다.
