Huawei Has Skirted Outright Bans in Europe. But Not 5G Regulations

The U.S. has been engaged in a vocal campaign to keep Chinese tech companies out of advanced 5G networks that promise faster connections, enabling uses such as autonomous vehicles and remote surgery. U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration has claimed that the companies could be tools for state espionage. While no European agency has targeted Huawei by name, U.S. warnings haven’t exactly fallen on deaf ears: the region’s regulators have been tightening standards that may hit Huawei harder...

France's 5G Bill Makes It Tough, But Not Impossible, for Huawei

The country’s parliament starts to debate Wednesday a bill aimed at tightening security around its 5G networks after an earlier version was rejected in February by senators for the government’s failure to fully consult them. The bill doesn’t name Huawei, but instead provides a framework for protecting networks by subjecting equipment to tests that may be tantamount to suppliers handing over industrial secrets to be eligible to bid for contracts.

Talk About Anything But Huawei During President Xi's Paris Trip

French President Emmanuel Macron and his advisers avoided any public discussion of contentious issues at a Tuesday morning event to mark the state visit, while Huawei focused on promoting its consumer brand by unveiling the P30 smartphone line in front of some 1,500 people in the French capital. “I don’t believe in in the efficiency of confrontational postures, but in a demanding spirit of cooperation,” Macron said at the state visit event, standing next to Xi, under the glass ceiling of the El...

Huawei Put a Bonkers-Big Zoom on a Phone

I’ve been waiting a long time for some company, any company, to bring a big zoom to a smartphone. Two years ago, Oppo showed off a prototype handset with a 5X zoom at MWC. But alas, after all this time, Huawei has finally brought 5X optical zoom to the real world on the new P30 Pro.Read more...

Trump Campaign to Restrict Huawei Runs Into Global Opposition

Nations accounting for more than 40 percent of the world’s gross domestic product are either embracing Huawei or appear unlikely to restrict the vendor. China’s President Xi Jinping, on a European tour this week, is expected to lobby further against bans in talks with French counterpart Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel. It sent its point man on cyber security, Joshua Steinman, to Berlin last week.

Huawei leads Asian domination of U.N. patent applications in 2018

Chinese telecoms giant Huawei led the pack with Asia accounting for more than half of the international patent applications at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) last year, WIPO said on Tuesday. Huawei, which has been under pressure since the United States demanded its allies bar Chinese vendors from participating in building 5G networks due to national security concerns, made 5,405 patent applications to the U.N. body, up from 4,024 in 2017.

Huawei Shows Where the Real U.S.-China Imbalance Lies

A week earlier, its CFO Meng Wanzhou sued Canadian authorities alleging wrongful detention. The irony is that no foreign organization could dream of attempting the same in China. A months-long PR and lobbying campaign overseas has softened the stance of foreign governments and regulators, helping combat the perception that the company is a conduit for espionage by Beijing.

Huawei Suit Tries to Go Where Russian Firm Failed

In a federal lawsuit filed this week in Texas, Huawei claims a U.S. ban on government purchases of its equipment violates the Constitution and could kill the company. The restrictions were imposed in 2018 because American authorities determined there was a risk Huawei products could be used by China for illegal surveillance. While the courts last year shot down a similar protest by Russian software maker Kaspersky Lab, Huawei contends its case is different because the ban was expanded to inclu...
