Huawei's woes add up as BT pulls equipment

"As a result, Huawei have not been included in vendor selection for our 5G core", a spokesperson said in an emailed statement.

The Wall Street Journal in November reported that the USA government was trying to persuade wireless and internet providers in allied countries to avoid telecommunications equipment from Huawei.

BT will remove Huawei hardware from its core 4G network within the next two years amid concerns over China's influence on national telecoms infrastructure.

Huawei agreed that the decision is "a normal and expected activity, which we understand and fully support", despite EE extending its 5G partnership with Huawei to cover live trials of 5G New Radio (NR) and customer premises equipment (CPE) back in February.

Asked whether that was a realistic proposition, he added that it was "possible", but that realistic was "maybe too strong a word". It has previously attracted the interest of Amanda Staveley's PCP Capital Partners, which tabled a £300m bid late previous year .

Huawei said it had been working with BT for nearly 15 years, and since the beginning of its partnership, BT had been operating on a principle of different vendors for different layers of its network.

Huawei Technologies has signed a contract to upgrade Portugal's No 1 phone network into the 5G standard, giving the Chinese company its 23rd global network client to extend its lead as the world's largest maker of telecommunications equipment.

Fellow UK mobile carrier Three last month also announced that it is working with Huawei on a 5G home broadband demo in London.

BT, which does not use Huawei kit in its fixed 21st Century IP core network, told The Reg that EE's 3G and 4G network still use Huawei equipment in the Enhanced Packet Core (EPC).

Later, New Zealand rejected Huawei's first 5G bid citing national security risk.

As part of an "extraordinary outreach campaign", United States officials have reportedly reached out to their government counterparts and telecom executives in European and Asian countries where Huawei equipment is already in use, warning them about the "national security risks" posed by the Chinese firm. This agreement remains in place today.

In 2010, the British government, Huawei and telecom operators, including BT, established the Huawei Cyber Security Evaluation Centre (HCSEC) Oversight Board, based in Banbury. "Since it acquired EE in 2016, the BT Group has been actively bringing EE's legacy network architecture in line with this long-standing agreement", Huawei said in a statement on Wednesday.
