U.S. 911 service will struggle without Huawei: Report

huawei u.s. 911

The U.S. banned Huawei in the name of security threats but the company has always denied it as no evidence has been found in the process. However, no one cannot deny the reach and accessibility of Huawei network equipment as it helped the company to become and remain the largest network equipment maker for years and it Huawei could also affect essential services such as 911 in the U.S.

Following the U.S. ban, Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has announced to remove all of the Huawei and ZTE made network equipment from their home-based network carriers as well as other carrier services in all sectors.

Later on, FCC announced a fund that will help carriers to remove and replace network equipment made by Huawei and ZTE as well as other blacklisted network gear makers. However, the fund wasn’t found to be sufficient and FCC then had to revise its plan and increased the overall supporting fund.

As recently, an interesting input coming from Bloomberg suggests that network carriers are still struggling to get over the Huawei network gear replacement. The main reason behind this havoc is related to the overall fund that is approved for the removal procedure.

Data suggest that over 100 telecom providers across the country connect calls for hundreds of thousands of people with network equipment made by Huawei and ZTE. This is quite a big challenge for FCC to cover and address in the latest scenarios.

Carriers are worried about the reinstallation of new equipment without adequate funding, which could cause issues in essential services such as 911 or halt it together in key U.S. areas after replacing equipment from Huawei.

The report mentions that firms including United Wireless Communications, which services 17 countries in Southwest Kansas, is choosing the services that it needs to chop if they don’t get sufficient funds to replace the network equipment.

If United Wireless doesn’t get enough of the $173.5 million it’s seeking from the FCC, cellphone connectivity at the lake, including 911 service, will be cut. If the subsidy is reduced too much, the company might have to shut down.

While in availability, Huawei has brought in cheap yet effective network services for network service providers, which are available around the globe but U.S. carriers are now realizing that it won’t be easy to leave Huawei’s hands so easily.

What is 911?

911 lines are designated for emergency calls, such as reporting a crime in progress, reporting a fire, or requesting an ambulance.
