Geoffrey Starks, Commissioner, Federal Communications Commission, confirmed in an interview with CNET that the United States must abandon the 3G and 4G networks in the case of continued prevention of the use of Chinese company equipment for the construction of networks 5G.

Stark said the old networks that use equipment Huawei pose the same risk to the United States as the 5G networks, calling on the United States to ensure that there are no security risks on existing networks.

The next step is to determine the depth of the problem and the extent to which it extends to the networks. This will require knowledge of whether the designated network Huawei uses software, code or equipment.

“You need to know if the risks reach the core of the network, such as routers and servers, or do they extend to antennas and radios that go only to the edge of the network”, said Stark

The last step is to remove equipment that poses any security risk. The Commissioner said that the best way to do this is “shredding and replacing”. For smaller telecommunications companies that have purchased Huawei equipment because they were less expensive, they would need funding from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to buy such a project.

Based on legislation, the cost of removing network equipment is risky, Huawei and other suppliers will range from $ 700 million to $ 1 billion, Geoffrey Starks said
