[…] The letter stated: “We should be looking to future-proof the UK’s networks to adapt to new technologies, not seeking to further entrench a limited number of vendors’ positions by granting supplier rights, particularly when such grave security concerns are apparent.”
HPE is one of a number of businesses building open source alternatives to help telecoms firms reduce their reliance on the Chinese firm.
