U.S. urges EU to use 5G by Ericsson, Nokia, Samsung, seen on par with Huawei

Robert Strayer, deputy assistant secretary for cyber, international communications and information policy at the U.S. State Department, said on a visit to Lisbon it was “necessary to demystify” the notion that Huawei is more advanced in 5G.    Washington wants its allies to ban Huawei, the world’s largest producer of telecoms equipment, arguing the use of its kit creates the potential for espionage by China – a claim denied by Huawei and Beijing.
