Huawei fighting for reasonable royalties

Huawei has brought InterDigital to court in China demanding a reasonable royalty. U.S. and British courts are part of a broken system that if unchecked would add 40% to 70% to the cost of an inexpensive smartphone.* That’s unacceptable if you believe connecting the world is important.

Huawei initially won a ruling in China that a “reasonable” royalty “should not exceed 0.019% of the actual sales price of each Huawei product.”

Meng Diary in Google translation

Last night, a letter from the Japanese , a small screen in the circle of friends , really warmed me! If the sentence has been said many times, the human being has its own true feelings. When he encounters a crisis, he knows that he has been cared for by so many strangers. On the day of bail, I waited in the court to go through the formalities. The lawyer chatted with me and said that many strangers called the law firm and said that they would use my property to guarantee me, even if they didn’t know me at all, they didn’t even I know, but they know Huawei, they recognize Huawei, so they are willing to believe me. My lawyer said that he has been in business for forty years and has never seen anything like this, which is willing to guarantee for strangers. Listening to the lawyer’s words, I couldn’t help but burst into tears, not crying for myself, but for so many people who would trust me and trust me. When the earthquake in Fukushima, Japan, I happened to be in IBM , USA.Headquarters, participating in the one-week workshop, in the final round of detailed communication with IBM senior financial experts for the launch of IFS changes and the scope of IFS changes.

  At that time, the company had just decided to create emergency plans for finance and funding, in the case of war, plague, turmoil, earthquakes, etc., The financial and business teams jointly worked out emergency plans in various scenarios. We organized drills on weekdays for disasters.

When the occurrence occurs, the plan can be quickly started, and various departments of the company can quickly assemble and respond quickly according to the design of the plan. Because I really can’t leave in the United States, let Sun Zong go to Japan alone.

Every Chinese school child knows of the “Unfair Treaties” imposed after the Opium Wars. The Chinese now are able to fight power with power. They have no intention of losing.

Dave quoted about Huawei pricing

Ken Hu said adding Huawei to the bidding in Australia would bring down prices. COMMSDay printed this that I said “Adding Huawei to the bidding often brings down prices 10-25%. I consulted on a deal nearly a decade ago where they bid about 30% lower. Everybody bids more aggressively when they get competition. But Huawei no longer has to bid so low. No one in the industry any longer doubts that Huawei products are comparable to the best. Every deal in telecom is different and bid privately, so no one can give a definitive answer.”

Ken Hu faces the press

Ken Hu made a courageous move facing a dozen international reporters, some of whom are hostile. He gave a frank, professional presentation and answered all questions. His English is fluent and he came off well. Here’s a transcript.

From Huawei, in full: Amid intense international media coverage and reports of challenges in a number of markets, Rotating Chairman Ken Hu held a press conference with leading global media at the new campus in Dongguan on Tuesday, December 18. R&D labs showcasing materials developed for 5G and an independent cybersecurity lab were opened for the first time to media, signaling greater openness. Attending were 22 newspapers, broadcasters and trade publications from US, Europe and Asia. They included the Financial Times, CNN, CNBC, Reuters, Fortune and Nikkei.
Mr Hu delivered strong messages of confidence in Huawei’s business growth and prospects, citing the trust of hundreds of network operators, nearly half of the Fortune 500 companies and hundreds of millions of consumers.

Nokia, Ericsson, and Samsung ban could cripple U.S. 5G (Satire)

Donald Trump tweeted, “All three are massively involved in upgrading networks in Syria, Iran & Cuba, our enemies. We must ban them from the U.S.” Trump discovered that Ericsson is working with ETECSA on Campo Proyecto in Cuba. Ericsson & Nokia both have large, active teams in Syria and Iran. Samsung supplies almost half the cell phones in Iran. Most Nokia wireless gear is made in China in a joint venture 50% owned by the Chinese government

With this move, all five companies with 5G networks cannot sell in the U.S.

“Ericsson bragged about a $B sale to China Mobile just a few days after we banned them from the U.S. Just like Germany’s gas deal with Russia, this means they are under control. 5G bragging rights are important, but not as important as U.S. power around the world.”
