It seems like Huawei’s ban effect is started to be seen on the US firms because recently more and more US firms are standing with concerns over their business loss due to the restrictions on Huawei.
Executives from US chipmakers Intel, Qualcomm and Xilinx attended a meeting in late May with the Commerce Department to discuss a response to Huawei’s placement on the blacklist, reported Reuters.
Back in May, the US commerce department barred Huawei from buying components and software from American firms. The listing also prohibits firms including Google, Intel, Qualcomm, Microsoft, Xilinx, Broadcom and more from continuing business ties with the Chinese telecom giant.
The chipmakers clarify that Huawei products such as smartphones and computers servers use commonly available parts and are unlikely to present the same security concerns as networking technology.
In 2018, Huawei spent around $70 billion on buying components from that $11 billion accounted to U.S. firms including Qualcomm, Intel, and Micron Technology Inc.
During an interview in Mexico, Andrew Williamson, vice president of Huawei’s public affairs, said the company had not asked anyone specifically to lobby on its behalf.
“They’re doing it by their own desire because, for many of them, Huawei is one of their major customers,” he said, adding that chipmakers knew that cutting Huawei off could have “catastrophic” consequences for them.
Renders leak of Huawei Smart TV V75 and Sound X gives better view at these devices
Huawei is all set for the next global flagship product launch conference tomorrow. At this event, the Chinese tech maker will reveal the most anticipated Huawei P50 series as well as other smart products.
Just a day ahead of the launch event, and a tipster has leaked the brand new renders of the Huawei mini LED TV V75 Super and Sound X speaker powered by HarmonyOS 2.0.
Let’s explore the renders in detail and what specifications they suggest:
Huawei mini LED TV V75 Super:
The render reveals that the smart TV V75 Super features extremely thin bezels around the display which gives it a modern look. The TV comes with a camera system positioned at the top and it is likely to come with pops up mechanically from the frame of the TV.
Additionally, this mini LED will be packed with HarmonyOS 2.0 system and arrive with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
Huawei Sound X speaker:
The render suggests that the Huawei Sound X speaker’s design is slightly different as compared to the previously launched speaker. The new Sound X has a transparent outer shell, which seems similar to the Harmon Kardon Soundsticks 4.
The official teaser shows the Devialet branding on the speaker, which confirms that it will continue to use sound drivers from Devialet.
‘Tesla cars are killing peoples’ said Huawei smart car solution head, demoted by Huawei
The company explained that the unethical remark made by Su Qing is the reason for this strict action. A person has to be responsible for his deeds, that’s why the company is taking further actions.
Huawei smart car BU president Su Qing took part in the World Artificial Intelligence Conference. During his interaction with the media about autonomous driving technology and safety measurements, Qing made a controversial comment about the Tesla vehicles and their ADS technology.
In his answer, Su Qing used an unpleasant word to describe the issues with Tesla vehicles. He said machines from the big names such as Tesla cars are causing accidents in human society and “killing peoples” even in the case of autopiloting.
He added that Huawei is working hard to bring solid technologies to decrease the smart car issues. The company (indicating Huawei) wants to overcome the causes as low as possible that are responsible for increasing the accident rate.
Reacting to this whole story, the Huawei spokesperson explained that the statement (Tesla is killing peoples) was his (Su Qing) personal view, but the company believes that it harms the reputation of both firms.
The company decided to demote Su Qing from the President and Chief Architect to the strategic reserve team. He will receive the training in the distribution department and will reflect on his statement.
Furthermore, Huawei spokesperson stated that the company respects the struggles and participation of each enterprise and appreciates their work in the automotive industry. Moreover, the company believes that only the joint effort can bring a breakthrough in autonomous driving technology.
Huawei and China Mobile deploys first Cloud Access Private Line
Back in 2019, the State Council of China published an official development plan for Guangdong Hong Kong Macao Greater Bay Area to promote rapid economic development.
According to the information, there were 53,000 national high-tech enterprises in Guangdong province by the end of 2020. But, the one consequence of this digital and cloud-based transformation is that these enterprise private lines have higher requirements on latency and packet loss rates.
In the past, China Mobile was continuously providing premium communication services for enterprises and individuals. Additionally, it has always been committed to building premium basic communication networks for the Greater Bay Area.
In 2018, Guangdong Mobile (Guangdong branch of China Mobile) has deployed over 2,000 OTN nodes to build a premium OTN private line network covering 21 prefecture-level cities in the province. However, this network is linked to Hong Kong and Macao operator networks as well as China Mobile’spremium enterprise network.
First OTN P2MP Cloud Access Private Line:
To provide low latency and highly reliable differentiated cloud access experience for SMEs and helping them achieve digital and cloud-based transformation. Guangdong Mobile and Huawei developed and deployed an OTN point-to-point (P2MP) cloud access private line solution on July 25.
The aim of this project is to help SMEs to achieve digital and cloud-based transformation. Additionally, by integrating OLTs and OTNs, this solution comprehensively converges gigabit access and all-optical networks to provide a premium cloud access experience.
- Fast network coverage
- Quality cloud access
- E2E smart management and control
Fast network coverage:
The OTN P2MP private line uses existing ODNs that have covered business buildings to implement fast coverage and provisioning of enterprise private lines.
Quality cloud access:
OLTs innovatively use upstream OTN boards to transmit services over exclusive OTN channels. This prevents service congestion and ensures zero packet loss. In addition, innovative dual-channel isolation technology for service and management signals ensures that private lines achieve deterministic E2E low latency and provides a premium cloud access experience for SMEs.
E2E smart management and control:
This solution uses iMaster NCE, Huawei’s management, and control engine, to implement cross-domain management control of OTNs and OLTs, fast E2E service provisioning, SLA visualization, and self-service bandwidth adjustment. It also offers a self-service and e-commerce experience.
For more information:
In the tenure of the 14th Five-Year Plan, the digital economy in the Greater Bay Area will develop rapidly. Moreover, Guangdong Mobile will continue to increase its network quality and use wide-coverage OTAs to provide ubiquitous optical connections for various industries
