This afternoon, Guo Ping, vice chairman and rotating chairman of the board of directors of Huawei, said in a keynote speech at MWC2019 that Huawei has absolutely no backdoor or loopholes in its device and it will never support such acts. According to him, looking for loopholes is Huawei’s responsibility not creating them. Nobody actually expects a Huawei executive to say the company creates backdoors, but it’s important that the company address the allegation which has been lingering for some time.
Guo Ping said that different networks should have borders. When operators are attacked by networks, they should ensure the security of the network environment. He believes that enterprises, operators, technology providers, and governments should assume responsibility in the 5G era. For Huawei, the biggest responsibility is compliance and to be safe at the operator level, compliance must be fulfilled.
He said that Huawei has always supported the maintenance of the 3GPP standard, but without the support of the government, everything is impossible. Government departments really have the right to standardize and implement standards. Governments and operators should work together to make the network more secure. “Huawei has a very good security history in the past 13 years, and the best technology, please choose Huawei,” Guo Ping said. Prior to this, Guo Ping said that Huawei has taken a leading position in the global 5G field and it has been leading the competition for a whole year.
