Revealed Why America and Europe Press Huawei, a Chinese company that develops 5G cellular networks
Huawei. No wonder the western countries are overheating, it turns out that this is Huawei’s big project that is considered to endanger the American and European markets
The United States and Europe continue to pressure Huawei not to enter.
Finally, the main reason they squashed, was the Chinese company that developed the 5G cellular network technology.
They even restricted the movement of the Chinese company Huawei Technologies.
However, the Chinese giant is moving quietly forward in the global market for one of the most important components of telecommunications infrastructure: undersea cables.
Launched asia.nikkei. com (28/5/2019), almost all data transmission in the world is via cables on the ocean floor.
Currently, global attention is focused on Washington’s efforts to ban Huawei equipment from fifth-generation infrastructure.
Huawei will offer wireless services that are much faster than current fourth-generation technology
To that end, Huawei shows no signs of backing down.
The smartphone maker is gearing up to drive new sales in Europe, Southeast Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
When the world is focused on the fog of battle, the problem of underwater cables has not attracted much public attention.
But security policymakers in the US, Japan and Australia are growing concerned.
There are nearly 400 undersea cables known to wind up on the world’s ocean floor.
Whenever an email or digital file is sent from one continent to another, the signal passes through this cable.
Countries also operate countless secret underwater cables for military purposes.
The leader in the global submarine cable market is SubCom from NEC USA
Japan and the European Alcatel Submarine Network are ranked second and third.
In all, these three companies have laid down more than 90% of the world’s total known cable lengths.
Huawei itself entered the business by setting up a joint venture with British company Global Marine Systems about a decade ago.
They are expanding their presence by placing short ties in regions such as Southeast Asia and the Russian Far East.
But last September, Huawei surprised industry executives in Japan, the US and Europe by completing a 6,000 km long trans-Atlantic cable linking Brazil with Cameroon.
It shows that Huawei has acquired advanced capabilities, although it is still far behind the established players in terms of experience and cable volume.
During the 2015-2020 period, Huawei is expected to complete 20 new cables, most of which are less than 1,000 km short.
Even when this is done, Huawei’s market share will be less than 10%.
However, in the long run, companies can emerge as players to be reckoned with.
Currently, Huawei is expected to be involved in about 30 submarine cable projects.
He is also reported to have played a role in about 60 projects to upgrade the cable landing stations to increase transmission capacity.
The reality is, even though the US managed to shut down Huawei from 5G networks in major countries,
But it said the Chinese firm could still thwart American efforts to maintain leadership in handling global data traffic.
Security policymakers in the US, Japan and Australia have started working together to address this potential threat.
The measures they are considering include banning Huawei from installing cables connected to any of the three countries, and urging other governments to prevent the company from getting involved in building any major cables.
Sources of information, however, see at least three reasons why it would be difficult to block Huawei’s progress.
First, in just a decade, Huawei was able to challenge Western players from a distance.
In addition to the Brazil-Cameroon cable, the Chinese giant is building links between Pakistan and Kenya and between Djibouti and France.
Second, Huawei already has very competitive technology for land-based telecommunications infrastructure.
It can use this knowledge to supply submarine repeaters, or devices that restore the signal strength of light fading in transit, and transmission equipment at landing stations.
Third, Huawei can benefit from Beijing’s policies to promote digital infrastructure development by Chinese companies around the world under its Belt and Road infrastructure investment initiative.
It is not known how much support Huawei receives from Beijing, but it may have a significant cost advantage over its Japanese, American and European competitors.
That said, competition over underwater cables is not new.
After the end of World War I, there was heated disagreement among the victors about how the cables laid by Germany should be divided.
Players are well aware that control cables are a strong geopolitical advantage.
