Recently, according to foreign media reports, the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) issued a statement to vote on two proposals for Huawei and ZTE.
The first is about the FCC’s Universal Service Fund, a subsidy provided by the US official for telecommunications providers to subsidize the use of telecommunications services by low-income households. The proposal prohibits telecom providers from using FCC’s $8.5 billion fund to purchase products from Huawei and ZTE.
The second is to encourage rural telecom providers to replace Huawei ZTE’s telecommunications equipment. The proposal will first estimate the number of Huawei ZTE equipment used by these suppliers, then provide alternatives and provide financial assistance to help these suppliers implement the program.
The FCC will vote on these two proposals on November 19. The FCC Chairman issued a statement in the statement that “Huawei ZTE poses a risk to national security” and called for a vote.
For small operators in remote areas of the United States, Huawei ZTE’s equipment with excellent price/performance ratio is almost irreplaceable, and because they have been used all the time, they are unable to change to other brands in a short time, and the equipment is replaced. The cost will also make them unacceptable.
In addition, the German government recently removed the clause that excluded Huawei from the latest security rules, which means that Huawei can enter the German market. Germany’s decision as Europe’s core power also means that the US’s attempt to contain Huawei’s global strategy has gone bankrupt.
In response to such news, the US has recently expressed its “concern” about Germany.
According to foreign media, US Deputy Secretary of State for Network and Communications Policy, Rob Strayer, announced on the 15th that if Germany allows Huawei to participate in its 5G network construction, the United States will reassess its intelligence sharing with Germany relationship.
Stryer said: “If their network uses untrusted technology, then we must re-evaluate how to share information with countries like Germany.” However, he said that the United States has not begun to review these regulations in Germany.
It is not clear whether Germany will respond to the US request.
Huawei is a partner of several German telecom operators. These operators previously said that if Huawei is banned, it will delay the deployment of 5G networks for many years and lose billions of dollars.
It is reported that Huawei has signed more than 60 5G commercial contracts with the world’s leading operators, and more than 400,000 5G Massive MIMOAAUs are sent to all parts of the world. Production and supply of optical transmission, data communication, and IT have grown steadily.
