Huawei uses UK deal to push for return to Oz market
Huawei is pinning its hopes on the company’s win to operate in the UK, helping to see it brought back into the US and Australia to allow it to participate in building their 5G networks.
The Chinese company has received the green light in Britain. While its involvement is limited to the non-core component of the 5G networks, its Australian arm says the decision debunks the main reason for a Down Under ban.
Jeremy Mitchell, director of corporate and public affairs at Huawei Australia, said the Australian Government had made its call on incorrect information.
“The Turnbull Government was pushing a line that you couldn’t split the core and non-core network (but) the UK decision shows that’s incorrect,” he said.
