The two countries are headed toward a world where they will have mutually exclusive systems for all important forms of technology

U.S.‑China tech tension centered initially on Huawei and the telecom sector, but has since spread through most of the tech industry. 

In terms of technology, the world had been unifying for years. Now it is reverting back to the likes of the VHS‑versus‑Betamax era, with much bigger consequences.

 Imagine two countries with completely different sets of hardware and software for the internet, electronic devices, telecommunications, and even social media and dating apps.

 That is the direction the U.S. and China are headed in—a world where the two global powers have mutually exclusive technology systems. Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »

Senators Urge $1 Billion Plan to Loosen China’s Grip on 5G

Bipartisan bill would subsidize tech firms in their efforts to compete with Beijing‑backed Huawei

A bipartisan group of U.S. senators, alarmed by the rise of Chinese electronics supplier Huawei Technologies Co., wants Washington to subsidize firms that could counter China’s 5G advances.

The proposed Utilizing Strategic Allied Telecommunications Act would steer at least $750 million toward companies developing fifth‑generation, or 5G, wireless technology and create a separate $500 million fund for companies that deploy “trusted and secure” equipment around the world.

Sens. Richard Burr (R., N.C.) and Mark Warner (D., Va.), who lead the Senate’s intelligence committee, introduced the bill.

A draft version of the law didn’t name specific companies, but its sponsors said the move would challenge Chinese telecom‑equipment makers. Shenzhen‑based Huawei has become the world’s top supplier of cellular radio equipment. U.S. officials have accused the Chinese government of subsidizing Huawei’s growth abroad through low‑cost loans and other support that gives the company an edge against Western rivals.

Chancellor is in favor of allowing Huawei to supply components for Germany’s next-generation 5G internet

LEIPZIG, Germany—Chancellor Angela Merkel was handed a damaging defeat at her party’s annual convention over her plans to allow China’s Huawei Technologies Co. to build Germany’s next-generation 5G mobile network.

The dispute within Ms. Merkel’s party threatens to further destabilize Germany’s fragile coalition government ahead of the final decision on opening the 5G market to foreign bidders.

Ms. Merkel is in favor of allowing Huawei to supply components for Germany’s next-generation 5G internet, but rebels within her Christian Democrats tabled a motion Saturday demanding the exclusion of bidders from countries where governments could exert influence over private companies.

Huawei may sell its 5G technology to a Western buyer

Ren Zhengfei wants to create a competitor for his company

IN AN ATRIUM designed to evoke ancient Greece—ringed by stone columns and six towering approximations of the Caryatids—it was fitting that Ren Zhengfei, chief executive of Huawei, should extend an olive branch to the West: a piece of his company. The palatial edifice on Huawei’s sprawling campus in Shenzhen houses an exhibition hall proudly displaying the Chinese telecommunications giant’s “fifth-generation” (5G) technology. The ultra-swift, and ultra-coveted, mobile-phone networks will soon connect everything from cars to industrial robots.

It is this 5G technology—central to Huawei’s future revenue growth—that Mr Ren said he was ready to share, in a two-hour interview with The Economist on September 10th. For a one-time fee, a transaction would give the buyer perpetual access to Huawei’s existing 5G patents, licences, code, technical blueprints and production know-how. The acquirer could modify the source code, meaning that neither Huawei nor the Chinese government would have even hypothetical control of any telecoms infrastructure built using equipment produced by the new company. Huawei would likewise be free to develop its technology in whatever direction it pleases. Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »

In the Race to Dominate 5G, China Has an Edge

The super-fast wireless technology is expected to revolutionize everything from driving to surgery

On either side of the brown river running through this misty mountain village, residents live in wooden huts without window panes. Chickens and cats mingle on the road.

But this southwestern Chinese backwater has seen a glimpse of the future that even major U.S. cities such as Boston and Philadelphia still haven’t experienced. As part of a publicity stunt two years ago, a government-owned wireless carrier briefly flipped on a superfast 5G cellular network to broadcast a song-and-dance performance from members of the Dong ethnic minority.

This is the audacity of Beijing’s plan to roll out the next-generation wireless technology, which government leaders around the world say could spark the next industrial revolution.

The drama surrounding Google and Huawei’s new phone – explained

Mate 30 won’t have licensed access to any Google apps, thanks to ongoing dispute between US and the Chinese smartphone maker

Huawei’s upcoming flagship Mate 30 smartphone will launch next month without key Google apps.

Huawei, the number two smartphone maker in the world, will launch its next flagship device without licensed access to the number one smartphone operating system in the world – Google’s Android – or any of Google’s ubiquitous apps.

The 5G-capable Mate 30 will be revealed at a 19 September event in Munich, Germany, CNBC reported on Friday. But the launch by a company that saw its share of the European smartphone market soar by 55.7% in 2018 is approaching under a cloud of uncertainty, thanks to the actions of the US government.

What is Huawei?
Huawei is a Chinese telecommunications company, founded in 1987, whose early history included updating China’s telephone infrastructure and helping the nation transition away from relying on importing foreign-made technology. It has since expanded internationally and launched its own product lines, including smartphones that are increasingly competitive with Samsung and Apple.

Chinese tech giant says it prefers to continue using Google’s Android operating system

DONGGUAN, China—Huawei Technologies Co. offered the first details about the operating system designed to replace Google’s Android on its smartphones, as the Chinese technology giant races to develop backups to American technology following its U.S. blacklisting.

Huawei’s new operating system, called HarmonyOS, is intended to run on all of Huawei’s consumer gadgets, including its hugely popular smartphones, which run Android and have taken a sales hit overseas since its May blacklisting, said Richard Yu, the head of Huawei’s consumer-device business.

Huawei prefers to continue using Android, the world’s most popular smartphone operating system, on the company’s smartphones, Mr. Yu said. But Huawei could switch its handsets to HarmonyOS “in just one or two days” if it had to. Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »

Subject: Huawei’s Phone Sales in China Get Patriotic Boost

Surge in domestic smartphone purchases is offsetting overseas weakness; ‘I think the United States is very ridiculous’

Many Chinese consumers are buying Huawei smartphones in a show of support for the company.

SHENZHEN, China—Huawei Technologies Co.’s smartphone sales are surging in China as a patriotic buying spree helps to blunt the impact of widening U.S. restrictions on the telecommunications giant.

Huawei’s share of smartphone sales in China soared by almost a third to a record 38% during the second quarter, according to market-research firm Canalys. All of Huawei’s major rivals, including Apple Inc. and Xiaomi Corp. lost ground in the period.

Booming domestic sales are, for now, helping the world’s No. 2 smartphone maker offset flagging shipments overseas, which have been hurt by concerns over the U.S. ban on sales of U.S.-sourced technology to the Chinese company. Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »

Europas 5G-Weckruf

Posted by hkarner - 10. Juli 2019

Daniel Gros is Director of the Centre for European Policy Studies

BRÜSSEL – Wie sich die Zeiten ändern. Vor nicht allzu langer Zeit waren die 4G-Mobilfunknetze mit ihrem Versprechen von massiven Datenübertragungen und billigen Sprachanrufen der nächste große Schritt in der Telekommunikation. Jetzt kommt 5G, das dank seiner höheren Geschwindigkeit (200-mal schneller als 4G), des schnelleren Datentransfers aus drahtlosen Breitbandnetzen und vor allem der Möglichkeit, cyberphysikalische Objekte im Internet der Dinge zu verbinden, potenziell alle möglichen neuen digitalen Innovationen anregen wird. Darüber hinaus wird erwartet, dass 5G die wesentlich schnelleren Reaktionszeiten ermöglicht, die für autonomes Fahren, fortschrittliche Fabrikautomatisierung, Smart Cities, E-Health und viele andere Anwendungen erforderlich sind.

Aber es gibt noch einen weiteren wesentlichen Unterschied. Während der Kampf um 4G im Wesentlichen kommerziell war und sich auf die Schaffung von Arbeitsplätzen und die Generierung von Gewinnen konzentrierte, dreht sich die aktuelle 5G-Debatte um Geopolitik, Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »
