After the Australian government banned Huawei from a bidding for the National Broadband Networks (NBN), citing national security concerns, the world renowned network equipment manufacturer came forward with a statement to deny the accusations brought against it.
According to The Australian
, the Chinese firm told the Parliament that the new legislation is discriminatory and it’s not based on any legitimate concerns.
Furthermore, the hardware giant believes that the decision will not only discourage other companies from doing business in Australia, but it will also increase the costs for users.
Finally, Huawei representatives highlight the fact that security breaches have nothing to do with their products, most of them being the result of human error.
In the past period, many experts have rushed to accuse China
of planting device backdoors in the products exported to the US and other countries. The large number of accusations have turned Huawei into a company that’s avoided when it comes to networks that serve government interests.
