Huawei hits back at claims it’s a national security threat controlled by Beijing

Published

The Australian chairman of Huawei has hit back at claims his company is effectively controlled by Beijing and poses a national security risk.

The Federal Government is currently considering whether the company should be allowed to participate in the construction of Australia’s 5G mobile network, due to be completed next year.

Six years ago, the company was blocked from any involvement in the rollout of the National Broadband Network, due to concerns about a Chinese company having access to critical infrastructure.

Similar national security concerns also prompted to Federal Government to foot the bill for a high-speed internet cable between Australia and the Solomon Islands.

These concerns continue today with some federal politicians — including Labor MP Michael Danby — calling for the Huawei and another Chinese company, ZTE, to banned from any involvement in the 5G network.


“Both Huawei and ZTE must report to a Communist Party cell at the top of their organisations,” Mr Danby told Federal Parliament.

“Let me issue a clarion call to this Parliament: Australians 5G network must not be sold to these telcos.”

But Huawei’s John Lord said Mr Danby was wrong and his company would do all it could to assure authorities it was not a risk.

“Huawei is owned by employees,” Mr Lord said.

“We have 170,000 employees in the world but it’s only owned by 80,000 because we haven’t got enough shares.

“There is no ownership by the Government whatsoever — we would term our form of ownership a cooperative in western societies.”

Huawei does not want to be a sole operator of the network, but instead to provide technology to Optus, Vodafone, TPG and Telstra.

Mr Lord said the company operated in 170 companies and could not afford to play politics.

“We believe that companies like Huawei are privately owned, not owned by any committee or any government, and should be looked at and put into a competitive tendering,” he said.

“We’re happy to have our equipment tested, we’re happy to have it analysed.”

Mr Lord said the company would also be willing to provide Australian intelligence agencies oversight of its operations, as it has done in the United Kingdom.

“That was the way to enter the market and be as open as possible and that’s what we’re offering around the world,” Mr Lord said.

Huawei

On 18th October Huawei launched its SingleBAND intelligent multi-frequency fusion solution at the 2021 Global MBB Forum. This solution integrates two innovative technologies to achieve the best overall network performance and contribute to the 5Gigaverse ecosystem.

Huawei SingleBAND solution offers edge cutting attributes such as flexible frequency decoupling, full-band multi-beam, three-dimensional coordination, and intelligent base stations. It mainly targets to increases the spectrum’s value. Let’s explore the two concepts on which the Huawei SingleBAND solution is based.

Multi-frequency Integration of One Network Concept:

As well known, 5G will demand more frequency bands alongside versatile bandwidths. It’ll increase the coverage performance between TDD and FDD bands. In addition, the multi-frequency integration on one network using efficient coordination of multi-frequency network resources will be able to achieve mutual assistance between multiple frequency bands.

As mentioned earlier, there are two innovative technologies applied to this solution. The first one is flexible decoupling of all frequency bands to help ubiquitous gigabit experience. Meanwhile, the second one is a full-band multi-beam three-dimensional coordinated scheduling to increase the capacity of the entire network. A brief description of both is given below-

First Innovative Technology:

The first technology is flexible decoupling that carries 5G NR uplink services using the Sub-3G spectrum. It enchanted the overall TDD uplink and downlink coverage. To be more precise, the supplementary uplink carrier bandwidth of 100MHz delivers a higher uplink rate 1.1Gbps for each user. In addition, the average user experience gain is recorded by 30%.

Second Innovative Technology:

The second technology that has been integrated into this solution is multi-antenna. It helped in realizing multi-user pairing through a single frequency band. Moving ahead, the full-band multi-beam three-dimensional coordinated scheduling has improved the network capacity by 25%.

Intelligent Base Stations: Upgrade of Regular Multi-Frequency Technology

The intelligent base stations are able to forecast the air interface signal strength, spectrum efficiency, beam, and other conditions. It brings accuracy and an increase in traditional multi-frequency characteristics. Moreover, a total of 20% progress has been seen in the multi-frequency network’s average user experience.

At the event, Huawei SingleRAN Domain President- Jiang Xudong commented, there is no end to innovations.  Huawei proposes the SingleBAND intelligent solution target to conquer the current challenges of complex networks in the 5G epoch.

microwave field test

Recently, Huawei and Hohhot Unicom jointly completed the first XMC-3E ODU microwave field test in Hohhot, China. A 112MHz large channel and 4096QAM high-profile mode have been used in this test that succeed in realizing a 1.37Gbps ODU single channel bandwidth.

It’s a nearly double rate of the bandwidth in the traditional ODU. Huawei conducted this microwave field test in Naobao village to provide them with ultra-wide and minimal carrying solutions.

To be mention, the XMC-3E ODU microwave used in this test has been honored with Red Dot Design and the iF Design Award in June this year. It has been selected for its outstanding industrial design and high-performance capabilities.

XMC-3E ODU Microwave:

This solution of the compy integrates a large channel of 112MHz to deliver the highest modulation mode of 8192QAM. Meanwhile, it preserves its simplistic design with twofold spectrum efficiency in comparison with the traditional ODU bandwidth.

Simultaneously, its cognitive handle design and quick-lock mounting parts are easy to maintain and provide an effortless deployment. In addition, it also delivers improved efficiency with higher safety measurements.

First Test Field:

As mentioned earlier, the first test was carried out in the Naobao village of Hohhot province in China. It is inhabited in the northeast of Hohhot which is 18 kilometers away from the urban area. However, it’s a really famous place in terms of tourism and has a history of over 300 years.

Field Test Results:

The main motive of Hohhot Unicom is to maximize the bandwidth capability and stability of a single-channel ODU. Thus, the company has cooperated with the leading tech provider Huawei. The test results show a 112MHz channel for 4096QAM modulation without enabling the bandwidth acceleration.
