Moreover, it has already been previously billed by the United States, alluding to the fact that he stole the intellectual property of several technology companies. Now, however, it is believed that this time he is spying on US military sites.
Huawei is believed to be getting information from US missile silos
Before saying that the United States government was investigating Huawei in this case, what we did not mention is that they have been doing so since April 2021. This means that the United States government is accusing Huawei of crimes of abuse for 4 years. . cyber espionage, Has stolen of technology, of confidential information and a long list of charges. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that Huawei continues to be associated with espionage and China.
This notably started by asking Huawei for information on the company’s policy on data exchange with foreign countries. And it’s that they assume their devices can get call information, posts and even data geolocation. This has raised serious concerns given that cell towers containing Huawei hardware are close to the military bases Americans.

And it is only a program of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) formalized in 2021, offered US telecommunications companies a repayment to remove and replace Chinese hardware. Now it has been revealed that this program has a $3 billion deficit due to excessive demands.
Due to this shortfall, a telecommunications provider of Nebraska (one of the places with missiles) refuses to withdraw and replace your devices with Huawei technology. On the other hand, crystal rhodescommissioner of the Nebraska telecommunications regulator, warned the media of the risk of the situation.
“An enemy state could potentially see when things are online, when they’re offline, the level of security, how many people are on guard in a given building where there are really dangerous and sophisticated weapons,” Rhoades said.
