As hard as it may be for some to admit, Huawei’s 5G is one of the most sophisticated in the world. It is not only cheaper, but the company also has more variety of equipment in its arsenal. In the global telecommunications equipment market, Huawei ranks first with a 28% market share. Furthermore, the Chinese manufacturer has a 20% share in 5G patents. This is also the largest from any single company globally. Huawei’s strength in 5G development has made the U.S. feel a bit threatened. Presently, the U.S is doing all it can to make sure it crumbles Huawei’s business. Furthermore, it is thinking of various policies that will favor Huawei’s competitors.
The latest report claims that the U.S. is seriously considering buying out Ericsson to fight Huawei. The United States is still the strongest in the field of science and technology. Various chips and software can be said to have a link or two to U.S. technology. In fact, in the field of telecommunications, there is almost no company globally that is not associated with American technology.
The U.S. needs new policies that will strengthen Huawei’s competitors
According to unconfirmed reports, the U.S. government is currently looking for ways to support Huawei’s competitors. There are many ways to consider, such as providing funds, legal support, and tax incentives for companies such as Ericsson and Nokia.
These methods have not solved the fundamental problem. The United States is considering the last step, which is to let American companies buy companies like Ericsson. The appropriate choice will be to support Cisco to buy out Ericsson.
However, it is not easy to say whether this policy can be implemented. On the one hand, there is a question of whether the US government can force US companies to take over. On the other hand, US companies do not intend to do so. This is because the telecommunications equipment market is not a high-profit industry. Thus, there is no real interest from many American companies.
Whether the latest report is true or not, we will not be surprised. This is because we have seen the U.S. take drastic steps against Huawei. The U.S. did not just ban Huawei, it is trying to convince all its allies to do the same. Now, its new laws extend to non-American companies that use American technology. In all, Huawei remains adamant in its stand. The Chinese manufacturer says that it is not a spy for the Chinese government. As things stand, it is Huawei’s words against the American government’s words.
