The United States, which continues to compete in trade with China, has introduced a new sanction strategy for 5G technology. In a statement made by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, a project called “Clean 5G networks” was included.
US rolled up sleeves for 5G technology: Clean 5G networks
Tensions between US President Donald Trump and Huawei jumped into communication technology. Because the companies that have rolled up their sleeves in the name of new generation wireless phone technology, may have to make a choice just like Huawei issue.
The U.S. Department of State describes this project as a comprehensive effort by the coalition created by countries with the same views on the US and 5G technology. What is this effort aimed for?
It was stated that this project is prepared for those who want to protect telecommunication technologies, cloud systems, data analysis, mobile applications, projects prepared for the Internet of Things (IoT) and 5G technologies from malicious actors (countries, institutions and people).
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo argues that equipment required for 5G technology should not be purchased from unreliable countries such as China. Pompeo said that the formation named “Clean 5G Networks” is in line with the criteria prepared for “Digital Trust Standards” (DTS).
The Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) has produced a system that evaluates suppliers selling telecommunications equipment with an instruction issued by the U.S. Department of State. 25 experts came together to produce this system.
It is stated that the criteria established by the Center for Strategic and International Studies comply with the European Union Foreign Aid Contract Procedures Guidelines (PRAG) and the guidelines prepared for the European Union.
The word “clean” symbolizes the disposal of China
Mike Pompeo, 56, mentioned on April 29, 2020, that the 5G networks owned by the U.S. Department of State and digital diplomatic processes using these networks should be scanned with a project called “Clean Path”. This discourse was defined as a reference to Chinese companies on social media.
Changing the name of the “Clean Road” project to “Clean 5G networks”, the Minister of Foreign Affairs announced that any equipment manufactured by Huawei or ZTE would not be purchased and used. These include computing and storage equipment.
Pompeo says that ZTE and Huawei work for the Chinese Communist Party. Donald Trump also accuses these two companies of spying. The White House stated that the most efficient security systems will be used against the moves of these two companies.
Pompeo made the following statements about this issue: “Unreliable suppliers in the IT sector will not be able to access the systems used by the US State Department. We will follow the “spirit of the law” to ensure that the network traffic provided by 5G technology is cleared.
We will continue to do our best to protect our data and networks from the Chinese Communist Party. Finally, the countries that support this attitude of the USA are as follows: England, Czechia, Poland, Sweden, Estonia, Romania, Denmark, Latvia, and Greece.
