The former CEO of Huawei Canada, Pierre Bisonet, believes that it is unreasonable to fear that the company will develop 5G technology in the country, even as Meng Wanzhou in China and Do Michael in Canada continue to return.
Bissonte said Canadians need not fear that the Chinese company will use its equipment to engage in cyber espionage.
Since 1987, Huawei has become one of the largest cellular and telecommunications manufacturers in the world. Its products are sold in Canada by Bell, Rogers, Telus and Videotron.
In an interview on QUB Radio, Mr Bissonte said that if Huawei develops 5G technology in Canada, it will not manage the operations department that is left to its suppliers.
Currently, the deployment of 4G networks is governed by Canadian regulations. Huawei has pledged to allow the federal government to inspect software usage to ensure that prohibited uses, such as backdoors, are not detected.
“Backdoors” are “backdoors” that would allow sensitive information to be stolen.
According to the former leader, if Canada continues to enforce these rules, the country will continue to enjoy the benefits of security.
It nonetheless specifies that telecommunications service providers have an obligation to perform a function in their equipment that enables interception and spying of calls.
If police officers have orders to engage in espionage or wiretapping, they request Videotron, for example, which should be able to respond to this request.
However, some countries, such as the United States, Great Britain and New Zealand, refuse to allow Huawei to develop their own 5G technology in their region.
