Huawei says cooperation among governments, industry and other stakeholders to ensure equal broadband for all



Telecom equipment and solutions major
Huawei participated at The London Conference on Cyberspace. Huawei gave a
speech on the event emphasizing that closer cooperation among national
governments, industries, and other stakeholders is crucial to extend the reach
of ICT technology worldwide, and ensure equal and safe access to high-speed,
high-capacity broadband for all.


The London Conference on Cyberspace, hosted
by the Rt Hon William Hague MP, the UK’s Secretary of State for Foreign &
Commonwealth Affairs, was launched this year to help shape the international
debate and develop a better collective understanding of how to protect and
preserve cyberspace among key members of government, industry and civil


The ideas and proposals that emerge from
the conference will develop into the ‘London Agenda’, a plan to help realize
the full potential of cyberspace.


The United Nations Broadband Commission for
Digital Development has established a vision of Broadband Inclusion for All.


To support this vision, Huawei has joined
this commission to participate in the discussion and formulation of the
concept, direction, policy, and implementation measures related to global
broadband development.


But from another perspective, the rapid
increase of broadband information has brought problems such as spam mail,
network outages, hacker attacks, and network security issues. Network service
failures, whether they are caused by natural disasters, energy supply
disruptions, or by social unrest or riots, will lead to incalculable economic
and livelihood losses.

“ICT technology is critical to the
sustainable development of the global economy and it is the responsibility of
all stakeholders in the cyberspace arena to tackle the pressing global
challenges of cyber security and reliable access for all in an open,
transparent, and collaborative manner,” said Chen Lifang, senior corporate vice
president of Huawei.

There are two key elements critical to
bridging the digital divide. First, this objective must be led, promoted, and
supported by governments. When it comes to the safety and security of cyber
space, we face two major challenges today: ubiquitous and safe access and data
security in the cloud.  The ability to access the internet anytime,
anywhere, from any device has increased the potential for threats to network

Huawei’s core strategy to combating cybercrime
is to establish and implement an end-to-end telecom network security assurance
system that incorporates global best practices, standards and methodologies.

“We place higher importance on network
security than on our own commercial benefits and this is the commitment we made
to our customers. I believe deeply that governments, industries, and other
stakeholders should unify to achieve -Equal and Safe Use of Broad Band for
All,” Chen added.
