Huawei launches world's first 5G base station core chip

Ryan Ding Huawei Executive Director of the

China's foreign minister urged countries not to use "fabricated" excuses to block Huawei Technologies Co., as Vodafone Group Plc joined a list of companies that are shunning the telecommunications equipment supplier.

"We have made a decision to pause further Huawei in our core whilst we engage with the various agencies and governments and Huawei", Chief Executive Officer Nick Read said on a call with reporters Friday.

United Kingdom -based Vodafone, one of the world's biggest mobile carriers, uses Huawei in the core of its Spanish network and some other smaller markets, Read said.

Vodafone chief executive Nick Read said that debate was "too simplistic".

Huawei has about a 35% market share in Europe, making it an important player in the industry.

Sales of Huawei smartphones and other consumer products rose more than 50 percent previous year over 2017, showing "no influence" from Western security warnings, Yu told reporters. Huawei is the number one telecom infrastructure supplier worldwide ahead of Nokia, Ericsson and ZTE.

In 2017 Siro signed a €25m deal with Huawei for equipment used in the roll-out of fiber-optic broadband to 50 Irish regional towns. Primarily, the event was to announce a suite of 5G products, including - importantly - a new modem which will power Huawei's 5G smartphone ambitions.

In addition to this, the South Korean tech said that it is already in talks with major mobile operators in Korea, North America and Europe, which are some of the countries that will witness the launch of 5G services sooner than others.

China's Huawei Technologies Co Ltd announced on Thursday its consumer business sales made a record of over 52 billion USA dollars in 2018 on strong demands for its smartphones.

Governments and telecoms firms around the world are in a race to deploy so-called 5G or fifth generation networks, with commercial services already available in the USA and South Korea.

"It is the first 5G CPE that supports HUAWEI HiLink protocols, bringing smart homes into the 5G era", Huawei said.

"Poland's alternative (to Huawei) is to build a state-owned company (or consortium) that would maintain 5G connectivity and using some sort of consortium they will pick partners", said Tomasz Siemoniak, a former defense minister and current parliament member. Huawei has yet to release 2018 financial results for the whole company.
