Huawei has accused the US Congress of acting as “judge, jury, and executioner” when it introduced legislation that banned purchases of its equipment, as the telecoms group confirmed it had filed a lawsuit against the prohibition order.
During a press conference in Shenzhen on Thursday morning, the company announced that it is suing the U.S. government in order to attempt to overturn the ban, which was effected in August of last year as part of the National Defense Authorization Act.
“The U.S. Congress has repeatedly failed to produce any evidence to support its restrictions on Huawei products. We are compelled to take this legal action as a proper and last resort,” Guo Ping, Huawei Rotating Chairman said.
“This ban not only is unlawful, but also restricts Huawei from engaging in fair competition, ultimately harming U.S. consumers. We look forward to the court’s verdict, and trust that it will benefit both Huawei and the American people,” he added.
The lawsuit was filed in a U.S. District Court in Plano, Texas. According to the complaint, Section 889 of the 2019 NDAA not only bars all U.S. Government agencies from buying Huawei equipment and services but also bars them from contracting with or awarding grants or loans to third parties who buy Huawei equipment or services, without any executive or judicial process.
“At Huawei we are proud that we are the most open, transparent, and scrutinized company in the world,” said John Suffolk, Huawei’s Global Cyber Security & Privacy Officer. “Huawei’s approach to security by design development and deployment sets a high standards bar that few can match.”
Estimates from industry sources show that allowing Huawei to compete would reduce the cost of wireless infrastructure by between 15% and 40%. This would save North America at least US$20 billion over the next four years.
Guo Ping added, “If this law is set aside, as it should be, Huawei can bring more advanced technologies to the United States and help it build the best 5G networks. Huawei is willing to address the U.S. Government’s security concerns. Lifting the NDAA ban will give the U.S. Government the flexibility it needs to work with Huawei and solve real security issues.”
Even as the US government has branded Huawei as a cybersecurity threat, he said, it “has hacked our servers and stolen our emails and the source code.”
“Chinese law requires them to provide Beijing’s vast security apparatus with access to any data that touches their networks or equipment,” Vice President Mike Pence said last month.
The company pushed back against those allegations on Thursday, reiterating that it would refuse any Chinese government requests to gain access to the technology it sells to telecom operators.
“Huawei has not and will never implant ‘back doors,’” Guo said. “We will never allow others to install any in our equipment.”
Autonomous driving lies between L2 and L3 in mobile network field: Huawei Wireless Network Chief
Huawei Wireless SingleOSS Product Line President, Ma Hongbo address the Global MBB forum with his speech. He presented five different viewpoints under his deliverance on “5Go S.M.A.R.T., Ushering Wireless Networks into the Intelligent and Autonomous Era”.
During the keynote deliverance, he emphasizes that network intelligence has been recognizing as the wireless autonomous driving network foundation. The network engines are preparing for the ability to self-learn and self-evolve with the help of enormous network data.
In addition, precise network algorithms and different approach models are also being prepared, escorting the network technology towards independent thinking. However, it’s still lacking a good synchronization between autonomous driving networks in mobile communications.
According to the Huawei president, the autonomous driving network current lies between L2 and L3 technology in the mobile network field. The industry needs joint efforts to bring both networks to the same level.
He further explains Huawei is willing to put more effort in terms of level criteria, evaluation systems, and application collaboration to established an autonomous driving network. the company holds serval projects and continually collaborating with operators and industry partners to create smart autonomous networks.
The industry reports show, industry and operators’ hierarchical recognition for driverless driving is becoming the center approach of operators. Furthermore, a recent white paper survey forecasts a positive image for future autonomous technologies.
According to the report, the analyzers surveyed about 42 independent network operators in the industry. Among them, about 80% are confident in their technologies and approaches for stationing fully autonomous driving networks that will a large-scale deployment within a decade.
To be mention, it was the 12th Global Mobile Broadband Forum, held in Dubai on the 13th of October. Its purpose is to bring the industrial leaders and global partners together to discuss the mobile network and adjacent vertical ecosystems.
Huawei’s Cloud and AI technologies contributing in building smart cities
On 14th October, the 2021 Global Smart City Conference was concluded in Shanghai, China. At the event, Huawei officials informed more cities are joining the smart city project. To date, 50 cities including Fuzhou, Chengdu, Changchun, Nanchang, Shanghai, and Suzhou have been accepted the “urban intelligence”.
The company is constructing an integrated intelligent system with a three-dimensional viewpoint. In addition, the ecology in Huawei smart cities also concerns global collaboration, explicit evaluation, and the constant unfolding of new technologies.
Purpose of Urban Intelligence:
Urban intelligence is based on the concept to delivered quick and precise services. Its purpose is to serve civilians, companies, and management to help them save labor and time. In this manner, these resources can be used where they are most needed.
Explaining in an example, President Kun stated, like a Netcom service can manage an entire city to operate one thing. Furthermore, a single network management system can provide enough help to the government efficiently handle one thing.
The official information shows, the Shenzhen-based firm is planning to perform an improved network administration service as implemented back last year. To be mention, in 2020 the company’s solution involves three working areas described below-
- One-Network Management: It handles online and offline collaboration with the help of its four subdivided sectors- discovery, scheduling, disposal, and analysis
- Auxiliary Operations: The solution provider is responsible for teaching the operation and execution of the system to the government.
- Zero-Trust Security: It ensures that the reliability of the officials. It prologues the concept of “Don’t trust anyone, but trust this system”.
In the last of his deliverance, the Huawei president further proposes three ideas to making smart cities more smarter. It includes- solving cross-sectoral problems, building a unified management network, and providing full support to urban intelligence.
