Japanese mobile carrier Softbank will replace some hardware in the future, that is the 4G telecommunications network infrastructure that was supplied by the Chinese firm Huawei – the Nikkei Asian Review reported. Right now, Softbank is, like other users, concerned about security leaks and other issues that are related. This replacement will take place over the next few years.
Softbank is also expected to place order with orders from European companies, both Ericsson and Nokia were named as possible winners of the contest. The next generation of telecommunications that facilitates quicker transfer of data is the 5G system, which also allows more devices to connect with the internet. The Softbank decision is in line with other global users who are steeping back from Chinese hardware amid concerns about equipment that includes malicious and actual stealing or destroying information or halting information systems.
Last week, BT, the British multinational telcomes company announced that it was removing Huawei equipment from the 3G and 4G networks since 2016 and now will exclude this Chinese company from further networks to be installed from other vendors. Both Australia and New Zealand have also banned Huawei from participating in the new 5G networks to be installed in the future.
