Probably. It would be interesting to see what they would be replaced with. But, then would Huawei users loose G.INP?

They are not core equipment. Core equipment has been being replaced for several years. The cabinets do not, by the sound of things, contain any code that cannot be and hasn't been verified. It's fairly simple stuff.

The core routing and exchange equipment, and I know not what else they define as core, will have millions of lines of almost impenetrable (for checking purposes) machine code that could allow a hacker in. It may or may not be intentional on Huawei's part if it does, but the Chinese government's hackers would almost certainly find a entry point if there is one.

The 5G stuff it seems is similarly complex, and maybe tens of thousands of small street level boxes, with it being impossible to verify each one.

I expect the nunber of Huawei cabinets to continue to increase and the number of ECI possibly to decrease slightly

Things have just got interesting;

Huawei executive arrested in Canada

The arrest follows a request from the USA to where extradition is being sought. The lady detained is the deputy chair of Huawei so not an insignificant player.
