Huawei, a Chinese technology giant who was blacklisted by the US Department of Commerce last May, continues its investments without stopping. Ren Zhengfei, CEO of the company, said they have built a new generation of wireless base stations without American parts.
Huawei, blacklisted by US President Donald Trump, citing ties with the Chinese government, does not allow this to slow down 5G plans. According to Reuters, Ren Zhengfei, founder and CEO of the company, said that after testing in August and September, they will build 5,000 5G base stations per month from October.
The Chinese technology giant, which will not use American-based parts in the next-generation base stations, plans to produce about 1.5 million stations in 2020. Huawei, the world’s largest manufacturer of telecommunications equipment, has been under scrutiny by many Western countries for security concerns surrounding it.
Some countries, especially the United States, are concerned that 5G equipment manufactured by Huawei can be used to spy. The blacklisting of the Chinese company also affects the future of smartphones. For example, Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro, which Huawei launched in Germany last week, will continue to use the Android operating system; however, Google will not be able to benefit from the services under it.
Earlier this month, Huawei CEO Ren said the company was willing to share 5G technology with a Western buyer. Huawei will allow existing 5G patents, licenses, codes, technical plans, and production information to be available for a one-time fee under an agreement with the buyer.
