Vodafone 'pauses' use of Huawei equipment over security concerns

"Given that, we have chose to pause further Huawei in our core whilst we engage with the various agencies and governments and Huawei just to finalise the situation, of which I feel Huawei is really open and working hard", he said after Vodafone reported third-quarter numbers.

Chinese telecommunications hardware giant Huawei said it could become the world's largest seller of smartphones in 2019, without the help of the US market and despite growing security concerns.

Vodafone has "paused" the use of Huawei equipment in its core networks across Europe because of the debate about security concerns involving the Chinese telecoms giant. Huawei denies that these concerns are valid.

Nevertheless, he said: "We have made a decision to pause further Huawei in our core whilst we engage with the various agencies and governments and Huawei just to finalise the situation, of which I feel Huawei is really open and working hard".

"Our customers have trust and confidence in us", Huawei consumer division chief Richard Yu said at a news conference in Beijing.

Tensions between China and the USA and its Western allies spiked last month after Canada arrested Huawei's chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou, on a United States extradition request alleging she lied to banks about trade with Iran. This runs contrary to the approach taken by the U.S., Australia and New Zealand, who have banned even those uses for Huawei equipment.
