Ottawa has a robust system for testing Huawei devices and software to prevent security breaches," said Scott Jones, new director of the Ottawa Canada Cyber Security Center.
Up to now, Huawei has been explicitly banned from entering the country, including the United States and Australia. Although there are rumors of the ban, Japan’s foreign ministry spokesman said the government has not made such a statement. In addition, South Korea also has some telecommunications companies that excludes consideration of Huawei. Canada is the first country that clearly stated that it will not ban Huawei from participating in the construction of 5G networks.
However, it is worth noting that a senior government official said earlier that Ottawa has not completely ruled out the possibility of implementing a 5G ban on Huawei. Now, the official corrects that the network expert to study the best way to protect the Canadian communication network. When 5G arrives, they do not want any future actions to be interpreted as actions against a particular company.
It is reported that Canada is currently conducting a national security analysis to minimize cyber threats from foreign telecommunications equipment and find ways to protect 5G technology.
