The UK's National Cybersecurity Agency is expected to conclude that USA sanctions against Huawei will make it impossible to use the Chinese company's technology as planned for implementation of 5G throughout the country.
Citing national security concerns, UK's Conservative Party has pressured the government to remove Huawei equipment from the country's 5G network.
On Sunday, the United Kingdom government announced that it was launching a fresh review of whether to use Huawei as a 5G supplier as planned.
Regardless of the security concerns being raised, Huawei has stood firm in its assertions that no cybersecurity risks are posed by using its 5G hardware, or any other technology for that matter.
What is worth noting is that while the industry has been in firm support of Huawei in recent years, this staunch stance seems to be softening.
The UK is now concerned that Huawei will become reliant on "unfamiliar and untested components", which could be exploited.
The Huawei announcement is a U-turn for Britain, which in late April confirmed it would allow Huawei to have a role in building its 5G phone network according to the deal struck by former PM Theresa May.
Huawei welcomed the decision, which came as Britain resisted USA pressure to block the Chinese manufacturer outright (see: Will UK's Huawei Decision Become a 5G Rollout Blueprint?).
In February previous year, the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) - the world's oldest independent think tank on global defence and security - warned about the use of Huawei equipment. Millions more are kept under strict surveillance in Xinjiang using draconian facial recognition technology.
Even human rights groups criticised the government's decision.
Huawei's rotating chairman Guo Ping recently admitted the toll that the sanctions have had on the company, stating that while it is able to design some semiconductor parts, it is "incapable of doing a lot of other things". Earlier this month the Trump administration also announced that it has extended its "Huawei ban" through May 2021.
Huawei remains the world's largest networking vendor, and it has also dominated the 5G space.
