Huawei Technologies has
established a security centre in Banbury, Oxfordshire to allow its products and software to
be examined and tested independently.
move is in response to a number of Governments' national security concerns,
which has impacted on Huawei’s drive to expand its network business overseas.
Huawei hopes that its Cyber Security
will allay those fears.
Frieslaar, MD of the centre, said: ‘This center is like a glasshouse -
transparent, readily accessible and open to regulators and our customers.’
security center will test hardware and software to ensure its ability to
withstand cyber security threats.
this year India
blocked imports of Chinese telecommunications equipment, citing national
security concerns. The block was lifted after Huawei and ZTE complied with a new
set of rules.
companies were also barred from bidding for a large Sprint Nextel Corp contract
because of U.S.
national security concerns.
