Huawei urges US to ban FCC

Huawei is legally challenging the decision of the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC), which prevents mobile operators in the country from using public funds to purchase telecommunications network equipment.

Last month, the Federal Communications Commission declared Huawei to be a national security threat and voted on a measure that would require carriers to remove and replace Huawei dialing into their networks. An $8,5 billion fund was set up to cover the costs.

Chinese manufacturers have mostly been squeezed out of the US market, major carriers prefer to use radio equipment from Ericsson, Nokia and others. However, a number of smaller providers use the kit from Huawei and ZTE because it is relatively inexpensive.

The rural wireless association, which represents operators with less than 100 customers, estimates a quarter of its Chinese-made members are recruiting into their networks.

The FCC's decision was made on national security grounds, but in a filing with the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, Huawei believes that the FCC did not provide sufficient evidence to substantiate its claims and ignored arguments that indicated how the ruling would harm our operators. In any case, Huawei believes that the FCC lacks the authority to make such a decision.

“On banning a company like Huawei just because we started in China is not going to solve the cybersecurity problem,” Huawei director of legal Song Liuping. “Huawei also provided 21 tours with detailed comments explaining how the order will harm people and businesses in remote areas. The FCC ignored them all.

“Movers throughout rural America, in small towns in Montana, Kentucky, and farms in Wyoming, they choose to work with Huawei because they respect the quality and reliability of our equipment. The FCC has not closed a collaborative effort to connect rural communities in the US.”

“The appointment is based on a fundamental misunderstanding of Chinese law and irrational, unreliable and inadmissible accusations and insinuations, not evidence. The designation is simply a shameful bias at its worst,” added Glen Nager, lead attorney for Huawei.

US military action against Huawei has grown in recent months, and Huawei has also been banned from dealing with US firms. Banning Huawei's restricted vendors from working with us in key technologies such as Google's Android operating system was a blow to its ambitions to become the world's leading smartphone maker.

Huawei has frequently denied any allegations that its products pose a security risk, while Washington has provided no evidence of any wrongdoing.
