In recent years, with Huawei's strong rise in the communications and smart phone market, Huawei has become the pride of the Chinese people. For the media/self media, as long as it is related to Huawei, the article can always bring a wave of traffic. Especially those Huawei "good", always bring a wave of netizens. As a result, all kinds of articles on the Internet that have been touted by Huawei have become popular. Some even have no bottom line and fabricated facts, but the reading volume can be easily 100,000+.
As early as the end of 2016, we had written an article entitled "Who is killing Huawei?" The article on the article analyzed and criticized the three cases of self-media “selling Huawei”. Huawei is indeed a very good Chinese technology company. It has also achieved many remarkable achievements. However, we still need to be objective and seek truth from facts. We must not blindly tout it. We even touted some achievements for Huawei. This is fundamentally harmful to Huawei.
Huawei has won Germany's 640 billion and Middle East 270 billion 5G orders?
Recently, there has been a wave of touting articles on Huawei 5G on the Internet and many WeChat public accounts. For example, the title is "Huawei"; open hangs & rdquo; Germany signed 640 billion, and the Middle East signed 270 billion, even the country has come! "Well, etc., and the following ones are very exciting, and I can't help but want to call the article "Huawei Niu".
It can be seen that the above articles, the title highlights two core data: Huawei 5G won Germany's 640 billion orders and the Middle East 270 billion orders. But is this really the case?
Let's take a look at the introduction of these two core data in these articles:
Judging from the descriptions of the original two paragraphs above, it seems that Huawei has won 640 billion in Germany and 270 billion 5G orders in the Middle East, but in fact, these two data are not true at all, but through the "small flowers" & rdquo;, stealing the concept of hard set up.
1. Can Huawei still win the German 5G order?
There is no doubt that 5G is already a major focus of competition for global technology companies. According to a report released by Deloitte in August this year, China currently supports 10G more base stations than 5G. The United States lags behind China in terms of 5G communication facilities and may lose in potential economic benefits. China. In the 5G communication equipment supply market, Chinese communication equipment suppliers Huawei and ZTE are also in the forefront of the world.
However, the development of Huawei and ZTE in overseas markets has always been hindered by the US. At the same time, the United States even put pressure on other allies to block and abandon communications equipment from Huawei.
During this year's CES, Huawei's mobile phone cooperation with AT&T, the second largest mobile operator in the US, failed because of the US government's call. Subsequently, the United States began to further restrict the United States' communications business that restricted Huawei and ZTE, and used the network infrastructure subsidy to force small and rural operators in the United States to abandon Huawei and ZTE's telecommunications equipment.
On August 14th, local time, President Trump signed a new bill as part of the National Defense Authorization Act, which prohibits US government and government contractors from using some of Huawei's and ZTE's technologies.
As the US bosses frequently attacked Huawei and ZTE, the Australian government, as the younger brother of the United States, also began to respond positively.
On August 23, Huawei Huawei Australia issued a statement on the official Twitter account, announcing that Australia and ZTE have banned Huawei and ZTE from supplying equipment for its planned 5G network. Huawei said that this is a result that “extremely disappoints consumers”.
In the following days, another Japanese media broke the news that the Japanese government plans to ban Chinese communications equipment suppliers Huawei and ZTE from participating in the tender for government telecommunications equipment based on security.
In mid-September, South Korea's largest operator, SK Telecom, announced its 5G equipment supplier's winning list —— Samsung Electronics, Ericsson and Nokia, but Huawei, the world's largest telecommunications equipment supplier, was not listed. In view of the recent refusal to adopt Huawei 5G equipment in many countries such as the United States and Australia, many people speculate that the reason why SK Telecom did not choose Huawei may be from the United States.
Recently, according to the "Wall Street Journal" report, "the US government is launching an unusual action: on the grounds of national security, it is trying to join forces with allies to block and abandon products from Huawei. ”
People familiar with the matter said that in order to reduce Huawei's advantages in some countries, the United States is considering increasing funding from different US government sources in various ways to subsidize the purchase and use of non-Chinese production equipment. Countries that purchase Chinese telecommunications equipment are not eligible for such subsidies.
Although the German Ministry of the Interior previously responded to questions from Members in writing, he said: “Partial or total prohibition of specific enterprises from participating in the construction of 5G networks has no legal basis, and there is no similar legislative plan in the future. & rdquo; The Ministry of the Interior believes that the existing security requirements are sufficient, and can meet security needs in the event of an emergency.
However, under the influence of the United States, some senior German officials still plan to take final measures to persuade the government to consider excluding Chinese companies such as Huawei from building the country's 5G infrastructure, which may be considered to endanger national security.
It has been reported that officials of the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of the Interior, who are in charge of the matter, held talks with their counterparts in the United States and Australia and shared their concerns about the risks of using Chinese suppliers (Huawei).
“It’s a mistake to exclude all investors from a certain country,” Greens MP Katarina · co-authored the House of Representatives bill; Droger told Reuters, “But we need to review the case to ensure Our critical infrastructure is protected. This may result in Chinese companies being excluded from building our 5G infrastructure. ”
In order to dispel the doubts of Germany, Huawei is planning to open a new information security laboratory in Bonn, Germany, and will review the source code. It is intended to gain the trust of the regulatory authorities before the German 5G mobile spectrum bidding, so that it can win the German 5G big order. .
In addition, in order to win the German 5G order, Huawei recently launched a large number of 5G advertisements in Germany's first urban area in Berlin, taxis and Tegel Airport. However, Huawei’s advertisement has aroused the local people’s resentment because they wrote in the copywriting “What will be popular in Berlin in the future, 5G or shit” (before Berlin), which is easy to understand as the local signal & ldquo Such as shit general & rdquo;. The German media "Pictorial" criticized: "The Chinese even ridiculed our beautiful Berlin as & lsquo; shit city & rsquo;!
Obviously, from the current information, whether the German government allows Huawei to participate in the 5G construction in Germany is still in doubt, so it is impossible to say that Huawei has already won the German 5G big order.
2. How did Germany's 640 billion 5G order come from?
Then those articles in the slogan "Huawei 5G won Germany 640 billion", how is the order data coming?
The author consulted some relevant information and found that this “640 billion” is a report from Reuters, which mentioned that “the total cost of German 5G network construction may be as high as 80 billion euros (about 92 billion US dollars). & rdquo;, and 92 billion US dollars, according to the current exchange rate, probably about 640 billion yuan.
Obviously, the above articles are for the German investment in the 5G network of about 640 billion yuan, forced to "sign" & rdquo; to Huawei.
Not to mention that Huawei has not yet received the 5G big order from Germany. Even if it can participate in the construction of 5G network in Germany, it is impossible for a single company to swallow the entire 5G network construction in Germany. Because there are multiple telecom operators in a country and they are competitive with each other, it is often not always possible to choose the exclusive cooperation of the same supplier.
Therefore, those who say that Huawei 5G has won the order of 640 billion in Germany are simply sloppy! Through the "small-shifting wood" method, stealing the concept of the method, forcing Huawei to engage in a "640 billion order", this operation is really very good.
3. Has Huawei signed a 270 billion 5G order in the Middle East?
Huawei did sign six 5G orders in the Middle East last month, but the exact order amount was not announced at all.
According to Huawei's official news, on October 25 this year, at the 5G Eco-Conference held during the Third Middle East Innovation Day, Huawei demonstrated the latest developments in 5G eco-cooperation and released it together with AnalysysMason (Easy International). White Paper on 5G Release of Digital Opportunities. At the same time, An Jian, president of Huawei's Middle East carrier business, said that Huawei has reached strategic cooperation with a number of operators in the 5G field and has signed six 5G commercial contracts in the Middle East, making significant progress in 5G.
So where does the number of "270 billion" come from?
This figure is indeed from Huawei official, but it is not the amount of six 5G commercial contracts signed in the Middle East, but the research data of Huawei and Analysys Mason. The research of both parties predicts: “For the next ten years, Huawei 5G will be The local ICT industry brings in nearly $270 billion in revenue. ”
Note that the unit of this forecast number above is “US Dollar”, not “Order”, and it is the revenue generated by Huawei 5G for the local ICT industry in the next ten years, not the revenue of Huawei 5G.
It can be said that this "$270 billion" is irrelevant to Huawei's six 5G order amounts signed in the Middle East. However, it is still being "always moved". And the initiators of those articles may be "mistakes" mistakes, or in order to be not so outrageous, so "$270 billion" eventually became "270 billion yuan" in renminbi.
At this point, everyone should understand that the so-called "Huawei 5G won Germany's 640 billion orders", "Huawei 5G Middle East signed 270 billion orders" is purely in the fabrication of facts.
Strength speaks, Huawei 5G has been recognized by many countries
At the beginning of this year, Huawei 5G entered Italy and achieved the first commercial pre-commertion in Europe.
In April of this year, Huawei's 5G products received the world's first CE certification for 5G products. CE certification is a must-have for entering the European market and is considered a “passport” for entering the European market.
Not long ago, Italy's two major telecom operators TIM and Fastweb also officially announced that they will use Huawei's end-to-end 5G equipment to formally open the first 5G base station that complies with the 3GPP standard and put it into commercial use.
According to the "Wall Street Journal" report, US officials also met with executives of a major Italian telecommunications operator, suggesting that the other party gave up cooperation with Huawei. But the telecommunications company has clearly stated that it will continue to use Huawei. It shows that Italian telecom operators recognize Huawei.
Another country that clearly stated that it supports Huawei is Canada. After Australia announced the ban on Huawei, senior cybersecurity officials in Canada denied rumors that the country would ban Huawei 5G and said that the country has a sound system for testing Huawei equipment and software to prevent security breaches. Therefore, there is no need to follow the example of the United States and Australia and exclude Huawei from participating in the next generation of 5G network construction.
It is a bit of a surprise for Canada to make such a decision, because the United States has been exerting pressure on Canada, New Zealand and the United Kingdom to require Huawei and ZTE to participate in the construction of 5G networks. And Canada is also one of the "five eyes" of the Five Eyes intelligence alliance countries (the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand), this decision can be seen in its recognition of Huawei.
For those countries that crowd out Huawei, Paul Tims, a researcher at Oxford University and former director of cybersecurity at the European Commission, said, “Huawei is the global leader of 5G, and its technology is one of the most advanced and cheapest technologies in the world. Alternatives in Europe include only Ericsson and Nokia, which means that it will cost a lot of money to build 5G, and you must consider whether it is realistic and affordable. ”
In addition, at the 2018 Global Mobile Broadband Forum held in London not long ago, British operator executives also said: “There is only one true 5G supplier, that is, Huawei, other suppliers need to work hard to catch up with Huawei”.
Huawei's rotating chairman Hu Houkun said, “The current 154 operators in 66 countries are carrying out 5G testing, and it is expected that 110 markets will develop 5G by 2025. Based on this development situation, as a leading wireless equipment supplier, large-scale shipment of Huawei 5G equipment has also begun. ”
Huawei's official data shows that Huawei has shipped 5G in batches to customers around the world this year, providing more than 10,000 sets of 5G base stations.
According to research firm IHS Markit Ltd. According to the data, Huawei's global communications equipment market share is 22%, Nokia 13%, Ericsson 11%, and another Chinese company ZTE accounts for 10%, ranking fourth.
Obviously, Huawei is already very strong in the 5G field, and there is no need for outsiders to fabricate “5G big orders”.And these fabricated facts, the people who forcibly touted Huawei, are also just to cater to those who like to see this "no brains cool text" to take traffic.
We can applaud Huawei's progress and be proud of Huawei's achievements in the international arena. But we should respect the facts and seek truth from facts. If you want to pursue traffic, you will make a "good" related to Huawei, then this is no different than "selling".
