Faut-il bannir Huawei de la 5G? La valse-hésitation

Alternatives Economiques
20 December 2019
Dans un document stratégique adopté en mars 2017, le gouvernement britannique affirmait sa « claire ambition de faire du Royaume-Uni un leader mondial » dans l’utilisation et le développement de la prochaine génération de technologie mobile. Le document mettait l’accent sur les opportunités économiques que créerait la 5G et sur les améliorations concrètes, tels les véhicules autonomes, qu’elle apporterait au quotidien des citoyens. Tout en reconnaissant (brièvement) la nécessité de garantir la sécurité et la protection des données, elle restait vague sur les risques dont la 5G pourrait être porteuse. Depuis lors, les inquiétudes suscitées par le rôle de Huawei se sont accrues. Et le gouvernement des Etats-Unis s’oppose à ce que ses alliés permettent à la firme chinoise d’entrer dans leurs futurs réseaux 5G. Mais le gouvernement britannique n’a pas encore décidé de ce qu’il va faire.Dès que Huawei a commencé à opérer au Royaume-Uni au début des années 2000, le 10 Downing Street a craint que le gouvernement chinois utilise les équipements de l’entreprise à des fins malveillantes.
