 Huawei: Looking forward to Apple joining the 5G mobile terminal competition


Referring to Huaweis business development plan for operators in 2019, Hu Houkun said that in 2019, operatorsbusiness added a new driving factor: 5G. Whether for the industry or for operators, 5G is of great commercial value.

Therefore, Huawei is confident in the operatorsbusiness in 2019 and expects to achieve two-digit growth. According to Huaweis financial report, in 2018, the sales of operators reached 294 billion yuan, which was basically the same as last year.

On the issue of network security, Hu Houkun believes that as long as network security technology belongs to technology and politics, network security is both a challenge and an opportunity. Because with the increasing use of the network, people hope that privacy will be better protected and that the network will be safer.

However, the political use of network security is a very big challenge. This is not only a challenge for Huawei, but also for Global trade relations on a larger scale. Because this will lead to the fragmentation of technology, will slow down the speed of technological innovation, increase the cost of technological innovation, which is not conducive to society.

For the current industry about Huawei will open 5G chips to Apple to use this topic. Hu Houkun said frankly that, as in the past, Huawei chips should not only be self-controlled, but also walk away from the road of cooperation. Now that the business structure is challenging for Huaweis management, Huawei has no intention of turning chips into independent businesses, nor does it intend to do so.

As for offering 5G chips to Apple, Hu Houkun said he had not specifically discussed it with Apple. (Cui Yuxian)

The following is the QA record of Huawei Analysts Conference in 2019:

1. As of April 15, Huawei has signed 40 5G commercial contracts. What are the prospects for operatorsbusiness in 2019?

Hu Houkun: Driven by 5G factors, Huawei operators will grow in business. Huawei expects a 2-digit growth.

In 2019, operators are facing new factors: 5G deployment. The development speed of 5G industry exceeded expectation. Over the past three years, there have been several interesting changes in the perception of 5G in the industry as a whole, especially in operators.

When talking to operators about 5G three years ago, there was no clear idea of how 5G could generate commercial value and how to deploy it. However, it is generally believed that 5G can bring a lot of application space.

When we talked about 5G last year, many operators were suddenly confused about what is 5G commercialization scenario. We understand this period as a confused period of 5G.

But since the second half of last year, the industry has a clearer and more realistic understanding of 5G. We found that there is no need to dig hollow idea 5G in the industry application of any successful cases. Including industry-oriented and personal applications, such as 5G changing the media industry.

From the perspective of business value, we all agree that 5G is valuable. Whether from chips, networks, terminals, 5G has reached a considerable level, especially after the release of various commercial 5G mobile phones in the second half of this year, we will have more confidence in the commercial value of 5G.

Therefore, under such circumstances, the investment in 5G is no longer blind pursuit of hot spots, but around the commercial value of investment, is a very realistic and feasible investment. 5G will be a new driver for the industry. For operators, it will further help to increase the business development of operators.

Therefore, Huawei expects to achieve two-digit growth in operator business in 2019.

2. What is the biggest risk for Huawei? Is it politically driven or lack of investment in cyber security?

Hu Houkun: From the perspective of operating enterprises, different risks will be identified at any time, including internal and external risks. Our risk assessment does not focus on one aspect, but on a systematic one.

Although Huawei has only 30 years of history, running an enterprise is like surfing, facing ups and downs at any time, but there must be direction to face ups and downs.

When it comes to challenges, Huaweis innovation strategy is a very important strategy for Huawei to meet them. How can we face the great opportunities of intelligent society in the future and build strong leadership?

Today, our innovation strategy is more from the innovation of product technology to the innovation of theory.

When it comes to external challenges, we also consider geopolitical conflicts and changes in international trade. I dont think cyber security is a political challenge, and cyber security is a technical challenge. As mentioned in todays speech, network security needs a more systematic and socially acceptable risk assessment. On the one hand, Huawei does its job well, on the other hand, it also actively participates in the global network security work.

I think as long as network security technology is technology and politics is politics, network security is both a challenge and an opportunity. With the increasing use of the network, we hope that privacy will be better protected and that the network will be safer.

But network security has been politicized, which is a very big challenge. This is not only a challenge for Huawei, but also for Global trade relations on a larger scale.

When politicized, discussions are not based on facts, but on feelings. Such an approach will inevitably lead to fragmentation of the entire technological development. The development of fragmentation is not appropriate for technology. It will slow down the speed of technological innovation and increase the cost of technological innovation, which is harmful to society.

If fragmentation occurs, it will be a challenge not only to Huawei but also to the whole society.

3. Is Huaweis strategy challenging to open its chips and provide them to Apple?

Hu Houkun: Our chip strategy has not changed. As in the past, chips need to be autonomous and controllable, but they also need to walk away from the path of cooperation. Now the business structure is very challenging for our management. We have no intention of turning chips into independent businesses. We have no intention of turning chips into independent businesses. On the chip issue, we did not discuss it specifically with Apple. But we think Apple is a great company. Without Apples efforts, the era of mobile Internet will not come very early. 5G is a very exciting era, and we dont think Apple should be absent in such an era. From the perspective of industry development, the participation of an excellent company in the industry will make other players better. Therefore, Huawei expects Apple to join the competition of 5G mobile terminals. Source: Responsible Editor of Netease Science and Technology Report: Qiao Junyi_NBJ11279
