Facebook has announced a new deal through which it is acquiring a customer service automation platform called Kustomer, and as a result will provide more tools to businesses to help them manage customer queries.  


Instead of responding automatically or redirecting messages to human service agents, Kustomer relies on AI for detection of customer queries. An advanced set of automation rules for message replies reduces the time spent on manually dealing with queries. 



How does this benefit Facebook? Facebook’s DM customer service is going to benefit from this service, with WhatsApp being the main focus. According to Facebook, more than 175 million people contact businesses via WhatsApp.

The U.K. government planned to phase out the Huawei 5G technology and as part of that plan, it is banning the installation of the new Huawei 5G equipment from September of next year. The government announced back in July that it would be barring firms from buying new equipment form Huawei starting from January 2021, due to the national security concerns revolving around the Chinese tech company.  


This means that any telecoms companies that have stockpiled Huawei equipment ahead of January 2021 will not be able to use them for long-term 5G rollouts. Reports suggest that several companies have been stockpiling the equipment since summer. However, firms possessing old Huawei equipment will still be able to maintain it after September.  


On the other hand, matters of the ban enforcement and the laws regarding it will be set by a new legislation in the Parliament this week. Furthermore, telecoms companies could be fined up to 10 percent of turnover or £100,000 per day if they fail to comply with the new security standards, according to the Telecommunications Security Bill requirements.
