Huawei opens security test center in the UK

Huawei Technologies has opened a security testing center in the U.K. to ensure its products meet government standards, the company announced Monday.

The "Cyber Security Evaluation Centre," located in Banbury, will be used to test the company's hardware and software used for telecommunications networks. Huawei said IP-based networks and smart devices are increasingly becoming open and integrated, which also increases potential security threats.

The Chinese vendor's move may be intended to quell concerns that its equipment could contain malicious software. BT is using Huawei equipment for its 21st Century Network, a massive project to convert BT's infrastructure to a secure IP platform to carry voice and data traffic.

Huawei said it is in the process of building "a state-of-the-art, end-to-end cyber security assurance system that will further protect equipment and network operations, based on industry best practices and international standards."

The U.K.'s National Technical Authority for Information Assurance said it will work with Huawei to ensure that its products meet government standards.

Huawei, which hosted an opening ceremony late last month with operators including BT, O2 and Vodafone, described the facility as being transparent, accessible and open to regulators and customers.
