Huawei in talks to help Tunisian ports

Tunis, Tunisia (PortSEurope) November 30, 2020 – Earlier this month, the Minister of Transport and Logistics, Moez Chakchouk, held talks with the Chinese company Huawei concerning the ongoing project with Tunisian ports. On November 5, the two sides met to discuss security at ports, part of the project relating to the safety and protection of Tunisian ports, the modernization of infrastructure and the establishment of
modern information systems applied to port management. The Minister requested that the project be accelerated and for it to be applied to the ports of Bizerte, Rades and the Goulette. Separately, earlier this year, Tunisia’s Ooredoo Tunisie contracted Huawei to develop the necessary infrastructure to roll out 5G across the country in 2021. Tunisia plans to use Huawei’s 5G Single RAN radio solution with advanced Massive MIMO technology and its 5G Cloud Core technologies to develop the 5G network. Huawei Technologies is a Chinese multinational technology company headquartered in Shenzhen, Guangdong. It designs, develops, and sells telecommunications equipment and consumer electronics. Huawei has faced allegations that it has engaged in corporate espionage to steal competitors’ intellectual property for the Chinese government, and in 2019, was restricted from performing commerce with U.S. companies, over allegations that it knowlingly exported technology of U.S. origin to Iran in violation of U.S. sanctions. Today, the British government ruled that telecommunications firms must not install new Huawei 5G kit after September 2021, as part of a plan to remove the Chinese firm’s equipment from high speed mobile networks. Britain has already ordered all Huawei equipment to be removed from its 5G network by the end of 2027. Copyright (C) PortSEurope. All Rights Reserved. 2020.
