Australia Bans Huawei

30_article_4091_thumb_huawei

The Americans are not the only country concerned with Chinese electronics gaining ground in their infrastructure. Add the Australian government to the list of concerned nations beginning to be more open about their distrust by blatantly advising that Huawei devices be excluded from contract bidding. Huawei is certainly gaining ground in the worldwide market, penetrating into nearly industry and country globally. In a released statement:

The National Broadband Network (NBN) is the largest nation-building project in Australian history, and it will become the backbone of Australia’s information infrastructure. As such, and as a strategic and significant Government investment, we have a responsibility to do our utmost to protect its integrity and that of the information carried on it. This is consistent with the government’s practice for ensuring the security and resilience of Australia’s critical infrastructure more broadly.

The Australia Government owns the NBN, so it can do that, but it has not banned Huawei from providing critical telecommunications infrastructure. On the contrary, it has just been announced that one of the three main wholesale and retail mobile carriers, Vodafone/Hutchison has contracted for Huawei to provide its 3G and 4G base station equipment and radio networks.
