Huawei’s been sanctioned multiple times by the US government which has led to the ultimate demise of its 5G technology expansion to the west with England already ripping its infrastructures off the country.
The company is looking to further expand its business but it needed the government of other countries to trust it so much and be willing to work with the Chinese telecom giant which has been accused of colluding with the Chinese government.
A new report has it that the company is now looking toward partnering with an Indian company which would involve the manufacturing of its 5G equipment and could also include the transfer of technology to ease security concerns which continues to loom over the company’s future.
TelecomNews reported this news but nothing is yet official about the story yet however, its worth noting that Huawei is a really big company whose reach on a global scale to further its 5G infrastructures and development to become a household name in the sector is under serious attack from the US government due to sanctions.
But the Chinese company seems to be making some compromises lately for example, it recently sold its sub brand smartphone division Honor for an undisclosed fee and this might be the next move to open up its business and allow in more partnership with other companies in order to win over the good side of governments of other nations and see it as a friendly business rather than a spying tool by the Chinese government.
Huawei is one of the biggest in the manufacturing of 5G equipment and its place might be challenged over time if it doesn’t make any move to resolve its issues as it’s smartphone crown is already being taken on by other brands even in China. Thus, the company’s official even asked the Indian government to provide a “level playing field.”
As per Huawei India CEO, David Li, “We are now very much open and willing to partner with a local company. We are looking for a local partner and for commercial reasons, we don’t want to disclose any details. We can bring our software or hardware modules and enable a (local) partner to manufacture equipment.”
Furthermore, the senior executive also asked the Indian government to clear the uncertainty regarding Huawei’s participation in the 5G trials.
Li also pleaded with the Indian government to consider the company and regard its reputation in the region for the last two decades.
“It is uncertain now… The government wants to address security concerns, but that should be based on facts and global standards. We hope the Indian government will give us a level playing field to participate in the (5G) trials” He added.
