According to Bloomberg News, it’s getting more difficult for Huawei to secure its x86 server business from the giants like Intel Corp after imposing a ban by the US. Thereby, the firm hastened the selling process.
The reports further informed that various potential buyers from the government and the private division appeared in recent months. However, the Chinese firm plans to contract a conglomerate with at least one government-backed buyer to sell its x86 server business.
Yet, there isn’t any information about the trading price for the x86 server division, but it’ll be billions for sure. Furthermore, other Chinese enterprises such as Henan Information, Huaqin Technology, and a state-owned enterprise in Zhengzhou are likely to be the next sharers.
Still, it’s unclear whether the companies are bidding separately or as part of the same consortium. Besides, Huawei has declined to comment on this matter, but its server business is certainly facing hardship. Although it isn’t willing to give up the server market, there is no way it can produce Intel architecture-based chips.
Last year, the US administration blacklisted Huawei and cuts its supply chains. Afterward, it becomes difficult for US-based firms such as Intel and AMD to supply their products to Huawei. However, Huawei’s MateBook series rely on AMD and Intel chips but the server field is unknown.
Later in April 2021, this Shenzhen-based company also introduced its FusionServer Pro V6 intelligent servers working on third-generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors. Despite this action, the company presently isn’t able to bring chips like Intel to support its high-end MateBooks.
On this matter, the media also previous reports about the tenses business relations between Huawei and Intel which was later rumored to be getting better. Anyway, the fact is Huawei’s chip production business has a long way to cover.
Huawei begins Third-Gen 5G Massive MIMO deployment in global markets, starting from Philippines
Huawei has decided to commercially deploy the third-generation 5G Massive MIMO in the global markets. And, to begin with, the company has initiated the assembling procedure of the product from the Philippines region.
According to the latest information, the Huawei 5G Massive MIMO is capable of achieving the best performance with the lowest power consumption. Further, it involves several advanced and new-generation innovative technologies for managing operations.
For instance, ultra-wideband, multi-antenna, and extremely large antennas. Together, these components improve spectral as well as energy efficiency. Besides, it also aids the industrialists to maintain green, simplified and high-end 5G networks.
So far, the Philippines has been constructing the 5G infrastructure for three years. On the flip side, it executed several Massive MIMO products to continuously deliver 5G facilities among users as well as maintain the 4G demands.
However, in the recent few years, the 5G techniques have overtaken the network spectrum. And the latest MIMO product can face all the hurdles to meet the required network development. The proof is the download and upload speeds which are 35% more than the normal network solutions.
Moreover, it enlarges the coverage area of the network by 30 percent. Eventually, it surrounds the large inter-site distances that other technologies usually don’t.
5G Massive MIMO – a step towards sustainable development!
The President of Huawei’s Wireless Solution – Yang Chaobin gives the following details of the third-generation 5G Massive MIMO product:
“Ultra-wideband, multi-antenna, and extremely large antenna arrays are important innovations for improving coverage and reducing energy consumption. We believe that continuously improving the utilization of air interface resources will be conducive to the sustainable development of the communications industry in the Philippines.”
Huawei has begun its work in the respective network field and will keep adding unique and thoughtful techniques. Consequently, we will soon be able to see new and high-tech network benefits in every corner of the world.
Huawei proposed FRMCS solution to promote Digital transformation in Railways
Huawei has introduced the Future Railway Mobile Communication System (FRMCS) digital solution in Berlin. Ultimately, this solution is the result of great research and hard work of the Chinese tech giant in the railway industry for more than two decades.
The Chinese manufacturer launched the FRMCS digital solution at the 9th Huawei Global Rail Summit in Berlin, Germany. Thousands of committee members and reputed officials of the company attended the event to see the dynamic debut of the respective solution.
Thoughts like what is this solution and how is it beneficial would be running in your minds. Let’s simply understand this. Over the past few years, the demand for smart and intelligent railway mechanisms has touched new heights.
Individuals are expecting transformed and improved railway operations that ensure better safety and advanced services. Consequently, the Huawei FRMCS solution is a vital technology that will fulfill all the requirements, needed in the current scenario.
It not only offers high reliability and low latency for managing the train but also brings new services to the ground. For instance, locomotive status monitoring, train operation monitoring, visualized dispatch of O&M personnel, improving fault prediction accuracy, O&M efficiency, and more.
Huawei FRMCS Solution
The new solution relies upon the 8T8R Smart MIMO technology that enables the coverage of 1900MHz. On the other hand, it works for three crucial factors: network elements, reliable services, and interconnection mediums. Thus, with this solution, the railway sectors would be able to bring durable communication conditions.
The President of Huawei Enterprises Wireless Domain delivered a short speech on how this solution will add more digitization:
“The railway industry is now in a critical period of digital transformation. When the requirements for train-to-ground wireless communication systems are already higher than ever before. Huawei FRMCS can meet these requirements by integrating Huawei’s 4G and 5G technologies. It can help railway customers build high-reliability, high-bandwidth, future-oriented train-to-ground wireless broadband networks that are safe, reliable, converged, simplified, and capable of long-term evolution.”
To summarize, the FRMCS solution will be a huge aid in the wireless digital foundation of smart railways.
Huawei Kirin reaches new low due stopped chipset production
According to the latest report coming from Counterpoint Research, Huawei’s Kirin chipset maker subsidiary has now hit record low shares in the global mobile chipset market.
American chipset maker – MediaTek has topped the list with 39 percent of the market share. The chipset maker has used the power of its low-mid range chipset that helped the company to gather new shares in the mobile application processor segment.
Meanwhile, Qualcomm comes with 29 percent of the market share and maintained its position in the premium chipset segment. But there’s a flip side, due to the sale of high-end chipsets, Qualcomm has achieved a 44 percent share in terms of AP shipment revenue in Q2 2022.
The baseband chipset support for Qualcomm has been boasted by iPhone 14 series, as Apple intends to further get the new network chipset from the company.
HiSilicon has been known for the shipment of Kirin chipsets and they were largely used in Huawei devices only. With the implication of the new U.S. ban, the company has been banned from accessing new chipset printing permission via Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC).
The chipset was printed via TSMC was Kirin 9000 with a 5nm process. After the ban, Huawei stockpiled Kirin 9000 chips and used them on several phones but the chipset inventory has been running out and the Chinese tech maker has already started using Qualcomm’s processors for all of the smartphone releases.
So, you can expect that the record low is the result of the past scenarios that happen with Huawei and caused Kirin chipset production in a negative manner.
