The US Justice Department has filed a number of criminal charges against Huawei Technologies and its former CFO, Meng Wanzhou. The charges are bank fraud, obstruction of justice and theft of technology.

“For years, Chinese firms have broken our export laws and undermined sanctions, often using US financial systems to facilitate their illegal activities. This will end,” said US Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, BBC reported.

Both Huawei and Meng Wanzhou deny the allegations.

In a statement, Huawei rejected the charges, saying it didn’t commit “any of the asserted violations” and that it “is not aware of any wrongdoing by Ms Meng”.

It said the allegations were already the subject of a settled civil suit, in which a jury found “neither damages nor willful and malicious conduct on the trade secret claim”.

Huawei’s former CFO, Meng Wanzhou, was arrested in Canada last month at the request of the US for allegedly evading sanctions on Iran.

Here are the charges?

  1. Huawei misled the US and a global bank about its relationship with two subsidiaries, Huawei Device USA and Skycom Tech, to conduct business with Iran.
  2. Huawei stole technology from T Mobile used to test smartphone durability, as well as obstructing justice and committing wire fraud. The T-Mobile tech, known as Tappy, mimicked human fingers to test phones.

In all, the US has laid 23 charges against the company.

“These charges lay bare Huawei’s alleged blatant disregard for the laws of our country and standard global business practices,” said FBI Director Christopher Wray.

Mr. Wray said companies like Huawei “pose a dual threat to both our economic and national security”.

Do you think Kirin chips will return next year?

Kirin return next year

There is a bunch of news surrounding Huawei‘s comeback in the chipset market. On the other hand, there’s a question tagged – whether the company will return to the Kirin franchise next year.

Reports suggest that Huawei is gathering support from Chinese semiconductor makers. The aim of this partnership between Huawei and Chinese firms is aimed to make a breakthrough in the chipset market.

Meanwhile, Huawei has not given any official node on this matter.

Following the last two news, readers have asked us whether the company would make a return with Kirin chipsets. On that, we don’t have an exact answer but we can check some facts before we jump to the conclusion.

Recent Report:

According to the source, Huawei initially plans to make network equipment chips, not smartphone processors. Because mobile chipset requires advanced lithography technology as compared to network equipment. Yet, the deadline for this achievement is set around this year.

That’s how we cannot deny the possibility of Huawei for the return of Kirin next year. However, we do believe that the company needs 5G RF component before proceeding with the mobile processor. As the company already has access to Snapdragon chips.

Still in development:

Past insights reveal that HiSilicon has not stopped researching semiconductor design. This would help the company to make a good comeback, once the printing services reconnect to build new Kirin processors.

Backdrop:

Back in 2019, Huawei has been prohibited to get U.S. technologies. The company cannot purchase new techs or sell them. In 2020, the U.S. further extended this ban and stopped Huawei from printing new chips via third-party manufacturers such as TSMC.

Kirin 9000 was the last Kirin that made its debut with the Huawei Mate 40 series. In the aftermath, the phone maker has saved some inventory for later released products such as Mate X2 and P50 series. However, it later decided to switch completely to Snapdragon processors but due to the lack of RF processors, the company cannot add 5G touch in new smartphones.

Still, Huawei keeps on digging for new ways to access new technologies and resolve the current difficulties.

Huawei 5G Massive MIMO

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.”

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.”
