Brazilian soy farmers try 5G technology with Huawei equipment

BRASILIA (Reuters) – The Brazilian farm state of Goias rolled out a pilot project on Thursday to increase productivity and take fast action against disease using fifth-generation technology and equipment provided by China’s Huawei Technologies Co.

The rollout of the agricultural support application for soy farmers comes at a time when Brazil’s government is considering whether to ban the use of Huawei equipment in next year’s auction of 5G frequencies spectrum to telecom companies.

The 5G communications will allow producers to improve crops through the collection of information by sensors placed in the fields, on harvesters and drones, so that it can be readily crossed with meteorological and humidity data, said Huawei Brasil marketing director Tiago Fontes.

Combining fast broadband communications with real time cloud data processing will give farmers in one hour information that used to take three days so they can rapidly take actions against diseases and other

UK bans installation of new Huawei 5G equipment from September

The UK government is banning the installation of new Huawei 5G equipment from September 2021 as part of its plans to phase out the Chinese firm’s technology by 2027, The Financial Times reports. The decision follows the government’s announcement in July that firms would be barred from buying new equipment from January 2021 over national security concerns.

The announcement means that any telecoms companies who have stockpiled Huawei equipment ahead of the January cutoff will now not be able to use this for long-term 5G rollouts. The Financial Times reports that some companies have been stockpiling this equipment since summer. Firms will still be allowed to maintain old equipment after September, according to BBC News.

New legislation set to be debated in Parliament this week will start the process of enshrining the ban in law and set out how it will be

According to Bloomberg, although the UK announced in July that telecom providers would have to remove Huawei equipment from their networks by the end of 2027, the new restriction could accelerate the plans telecom providers had in place to overhaul their systems. The telecom providers were already prohibited from purchasing new 5G equipment from Huawei beginning in January 2021.

Bloomberg reported that telecom carriers will also be banned from outsourcing service management to Huawei beginning in April 2021.

“We are taking bold steps to implement one of the toughest telecoms security regimes in the world,”
