Are foreign governments justified in their fears of using Huawei telecom equipment, given that Article 7 of Chinas National Intelligence Law mandates that all Chinese companies must collaborate in national intelligence work?

List of Huawei phones with Google services 2022

Starting 1 January 2019, no scientist working with Indiau2019s DRDO laboratories will be allowed to carry phones inside the labs.

The move cites security concerns after a BrahMos scientist was arrested for leaking information to the ISI.

The Defence R&D Organization (DRDO) has also banned the use of CDs and pen drives or any media that can help transfer information.

Besides, the organization has also asked its scientists to prevent from revealing their identity or designation on social media platforms.

The company has even barred the employees from revealing identity on matrimonial sites or wedding cards.

,A senior systems engineer named Nishant Aggarwal who was working with BrahMos Aerospace said to have received a lucrative job offer on his LinkedIn profile by Pakistans Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).

He was offered a high-paying job in middle east and asked to handover technical information about BrahMos.

Scientists that are working with the organization on a contract basis have been asked to provide an undertaking that says they wouldnt disclose details about any of the project hey are associated to, even after the end of their tenure.

This is a good beginning for DRDO to keen their scientists away from social media.

Entire armed forces should do the same u2013 no social media access, profile and no Chinese brand of mobile (like Vivo, Oppo, OnePlus, Gionee etc.

) for self and armed forces family.

There are many instances where Army, Navy or Air Force officers were honey trapped by beautiful girls on socal media who turned out to be fake accounts run by Pakistanu2019s ISI.

All Chinese brand of smartphones have built in apps that send data to Chinese servers.

Government of Indiau2019s data localization plan will not prevent Chinese smartphones from secretly sending data to China.

,Having surpassed 119 crore mobile phone subscribers in September 2018, the Indian wireless industry is now the second largest in the world by number of subscribers and ranks second in terms of total internet users.

Over the past couple of years, the Indian telecom industry has been going through a paradigm shift from a voice-centric market to a data-centric market due availability of smartphones and huge smartphone apps for all our needs.

,Given the convergence (telecom, media and technology) starts to play out next along with rising mobile internet users, telcos have started shifting beyond traditional telecom business to wider digital consumer space such as content, mobile banking solutions, etc.

India is one of the largest data consumers (an average 1 GB data per day per user) globally.

,In this scenario, internet security will be most important parameter to control.

All Chinese brand of mobile phones with pre loaded Chinese apps are huge potential risk.

Similarly, Chinese telecom vendors like Huawai and ZTE are also big risk.

Fighting Chinese competitors with lower priced phones saw Samsung Indiau2019s net profit fall by as much as 11% to to Rs 3,712.

7 crore but revenues grew by 10% to cross the milestone of Rs 60,000 crore in FY18.

The fall in profitability was due to Samsung Indiau2019s focus on launching price-aggressive smartphones at relatively lower margin to combat Chinese brands like Xiaomi, Oppo, Vivo and Oneplus.

Hyper competition in smartphone segment led to large number of smartphone assembly (not manufacturing) factories were setup in recent years including worldu2019s biggest smartphone factory owned by Samsung.

,But Chinese mobile brands are still gaining market share at the cost of local brands like Lava, Micromax, Intex, Karbonn etc.

Xiaomiu2019s sales in FY18 was Rs 22,947 crore, Oppo Mobiles India was Rs 11,994 crore and Vivo Mobile India Rs 11,179 crore, Oppo and Vivo are in losses despite good market share.

By mid 2018, four of the top five smartphone makers were Chinese, according to IDC.

In addition to Xiaomi, that number includes Oppo (7.

6 percent market share), Vivo (12.

6 percent), and Transsion (5 percent).

Together with other Chinese phone makers such as Lenovo, the group held two-thirds of the local smartphone market in the second quarter, IDC said in a report published last month.

Less than three years ago, the aggregate market share of these companies was under 15 percent in India.

Indian smartphone makers Micromax, Karbonn, Lava, and others together held about 46 percent of the market in early 2016.

That figure has now been reduced to 9%.

So, is u2018make in Indiau2019 working for smartphones despite Indian government claim that mobile assembly factories increased fro 2 in 2014 to nearly 150?,A Chinese soldier killing a landowner as Chinau2019s leader said u201cpower comes from barrel of the gunu201d.

Same way Chinese companies killing Indian mobile phone brands.

Why the Chinese smartphone makers selling their products are minimal profit and capturing market share? It is clear all Chinese telecom companies want all Indianu2019s data available on internet, social media and transaction details to be slowly and secretly shifted to Chinese servers.

So, all Chinese smartphones and telecom interconnect devices (switches, wifi routers, firewalls etc.

) from Oppo, Vivo, OnePlus, Xiaomi, Gionee, Lenovo, ZTE and Huawei are security issue of alarming proportion.

Government of India and DOT (Department of Telecom) do not have sufficient time, manpower, skill or laboratory to minutely test all these equipments.

Also, software bugs can be added later to these devices as they regularly undergo version upgrades.

Extensive testing will also led to delay in launching new products and technology like 5G rollout.

,So, we are at the mercy of American and European test labs to identify any bugs in Chinese telecom devices and in last 5 years no Chinese devices were blacklisted due to security issue.

In 2019, western countries will roll out 5G services but how should India handle the telecom security challenge? We want Chinese devices which are cheap (in comparison to western brands like Nokia, Ericsson, Cisco, Ciena etc) and also we donu2019t want any Chinese spyware.

,One solution is keeping all personal electronic data of Indians within servers located in India.

Indian government has already implemented this policy and all MNC brands are making arrangement for compliance although American brands like Mastercard (online payment), Google and Amazon (e-commerce) are extremely reluctant to comply.

Indian government should take this compliance certificate from all Chinese companies in every six months.

,Telecom secretary Aruna Sundararajan had announced in mid-September that Huawei was being excluded from a list of firms invited to partner with the government for 5G trials.

However, about a fortnight later, Huawei said the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has invited it to participate in the programme.

DoT hasnu2019t officially commented on the matter.

That was before the Huawai controversy started in Australia when Australia banned the leading telecom gear manufacturer for bidding in 5G testing and subsequent auctions.

,The Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI) on December 2018 defended Huawai amid reports that said that the Telecom Equipment and Services Export Promotion Council (TEPC) was planning to seek restriction against the Chinese telecom gear maker over national security concerns.

The industry body, in its letter to the telecom secretary, urged the government to not take any decision in haste on the basis of alleged concerns raised by the TEPC.

The COAI, which represents telecom service providers, also requested the government to conduct its own due diligence in this context.

It said that any arbitrary exclusion of certain companies on hearsay may be detrimental to the overall digital communications aspirations of the nation.

It seems COAI has backing of private telecom operators who understand how to maximise profits by dumping cheap Chinese products into India even if large scale import of telecom products do not generate employment and undermines national security.

n nAn Indian telecom export body has sent a request to National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, proposing a procurement ban on equipment made by Chinese companies like Huawei and ZTE from government networks due to rising security concerns.

Ban the procurement of any Chinese telecom equipment in any government telecom network (centre or state but no mention of private network operators), including power, rail, defence and PSUs.

We believe that indigenous equipment makers already have the products, IPR as well as manufacturing capability and capacity to address these needs, Telecom Export Promotion Council (TEPC) Chairman Shyamal Ghosh said in a letter to Doval.

This opinion needs more analysis.

,DRDO banned mobile phones on duty.

Army and IAF banned certain Chinese smartphones and apps earlier.

If railway and defence communication network uses Chinese devices it can have disastrous consequences.

Same is the case with power equipment which can be controlled and switched off by Chinese malware during the time of crisis.

,This shows contradiction between two telecom associations.

Telecom manufacturers and exporters donu2019t want Chinese brands in 5G but service providers wants cheap Chinese 5G equipents.

The situation is similar to solar power industry were 92% of solar panels and 43% solar inverters are imported from China making mockery of governmentu2019s u2018Make in Indiau2019 policy.

To make situation worst, none of the Chinese solar panel and inverter makers donu2019s have any factory in India and they have no interest to make solar power products in India.

India cannot stop Chinese import of solar equipments as government has target to deploy 100 GW of solar power by 2022 and Chinese know this.

Solar panels are not a security risk as they are u2018passive componentu2019 but solar inverters are u2018active componentu2019 or the brain which is connected to internet cloud and can be switched off by Chinese sitting at a third country (say Malaysia).

,Huawei India office said that it has not received any official communication and the reports or statements made are not backed by any proof.

We continue to receive full support from the government and industry partners alike.

Having a proven track record of doing business in the country, we continue to work closely with government of India and other industry stakeholders, Huawei said in a statement.

Huawai added that privacy and security are always its first priority (never trust what communist say, trust what communist do was famous saying of Cginau2019s leader Mao) and its products are used by major telcos globally.

In India too we continue to partner with leading carriers and enterprises to deliver world class ICT products and solutions.

Ultimately, Huawei will continue to develop its business through a significant commitment to innovation and R&D, and towards delivering technologies that help our customers succeed, it further added.

,India is unlikely to ban Chinau2019s Huawei from selling 5G equipment in the country, in a reversal of its earlier stance, despite the US calling for a boycott over espionage concerns.

India is thus missing a golden opportunity to rival Chinese brands which are eating the cake here.

Indian officials now say the telecom gear maker canu2019t be singled out in matters of security, especially since its rivals also source key components from China.

The telecom department has issued an invitation letter to Huawei in December 2018 to conduct trial runs for 5G technology.

Huawei said that it plans to conduct 5G field trials in the first quarter of 2019.

and telecom minister Manoj Sinha said on parliament on 4 January 2019 u201cat present, there is no proposal before the government considering banning telecom gear and equipment made by Huaweiu201d.

It seems ZTE, which has much smaller operation in India, has been banned for 5G testing.

Not banning Huawei in India is a huge security risk as well as mockery of u2018make in Indiau2019 campaign.

India can wait and watch for couple of years and see how Huawei dispute evolves between west and China.

India is few years behind west in terms of readiness to deploy 5G as 4G was rolled out quite recently.

The rollout of 5G networks is expected to take a decade.

As technologies advance, the amount of data flowing between machines is set to surge, prompting governments to increasingly view telecom networks as strategic national assets and take corrective action later.

,Jay Chen, Huawei CEO in India said there was no evidence to prove the security-related allegations against the companyu2019s products and solutions.

He said the company was committed to making further investments in the country, and was working on a plan to share products source code for scrutiny and resume local manufacturing of telecom gear and enterprise products.

,The promise of u2018local manufacturingu2019 by Chinese can be a u201clollypopu201d given to Indian government to stay in India when its western market is shrinking fast.

Huawai is selling its products to Indian telecom operators since 2005 but still dont have any manufacturing plant by end of 2018.

All it has a R&D development centre in Bangaluru but it just a marketing office without any research and development work!,The US, Australia, and New Zealand have banned or restricted the use of Huaweiu2019s 5G equipment, and have raised various concerns about the vendors equipment.

The U.

S.

dispute with China over a ban on tech giant Huawei is spilling over to Europe, the companys biggest foreign market, where some countries are also starting to shun its network systems over data security concerns.

Some European governments and telecom companies are following the U.

S.

s lead in questioning whether using Huawei for vital infrastructure for mobile networks could leave them exposed to snooping by the Chinese government.

Bans in Europe could significantly increase the financial pressures on Huawei.

,Geopolitical tensions over Huawei intensified after its chief financial officer, who is also the daughter of founder Ren Zhengfei, was arrested Dec.

1 2018 in Canada in connection with U.

S.

accusations that the company violated restrictions on sales of American technology to Iran.

Huawei has been blocked in the U.

S.

since 2012, when a House Intelligence Committee report found it was a security risk and recommended that the government and private companies stop buying its network equipment.

,Germanys Deutsche Telekom said in December 2018 it uses multiple companies to build its network, including Ericsson, Nokia and Cisco.

``Nevertheless, we are currently reevaluating our procurement strategy, the company said.

The statement is significant because until recently it had been one of Huaweis u201cbiggest cheerleaders based on its cheap equipment.

German decisions are also likely to influence those by smaller countries that are part of the German industrial manufacturing supply chain, such as Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

,British Telecom said it was removing Huawei equipment from key parts of its current 3G and 4G networks as part of an internal policy not to use it for core infrastructure, which will also apply to 5G networks.

The British government-run center that tests the companys equipment and software this summer identified u201cshortcomings in Huaweis engineering processes that have exposed new risks in U.

K.

networks.

Huawei said its working on fixing those issues.

,Norways telecom ministry said it was considering clarifying requirements from network operators, without being more specific.

Belgiums cybersecurity agency is reportedly considering a ban on Huawei.

And the Czech Republics prime minister ordered his government office on December 2018 to stop using Huawei mobile phones, after the national cybersecurity agency warned that products by Huawei and another Chinese telecom company, ZTE, pose ``a security threat.

,Huawei, founded in 1987 by a former military engineer, denies accusations its controlled by Chinas ruling Communist Party or designs equipment to facilitate eavesdropping (donu2019t trust what Chinese communists say).

The Europe, Middle East and Africa market is Huaweis second biggest after China, accounting for 27 percent of its nearly $90 billion revenue last year.

Executives said the company has now signed contracts with 25 telecom carriers for commercial or test use of 5G and shipped more than 10,000 5G base stations.

,Indian government which comes to power in 2019 needs to take a strategic view on deployment of Chinese telecom and power equipments and ensure complete manufacturing ecosystem is made available in India by Chinese companies.

Most of the Chinese companies operating in India have not made any significant investment in manufacturing compared to their business revenue in India.

Smartphone assembly plant of Vivo and Oppo in India are not significant in generating employment compared to their global business operations.

Component level manufacturing is still missing in India and Chinese brands are importing components from China.

Knowledge sharing to Indians working in Chinese company in India remain extremely low.

Chinese telecom companies operate with u2018hire and fireu2019 policy where there are few instances of entire factory workers were shown the door suddenly.

,India may regret the decision not to ban Huawai 5G.

China will gain a capability for mayhem and mass surveillance if it dominates advanced 5G networks that link billions of devices, retired US air force Brigadier General Robert Spalding said.

List of Huawei phones without Google services

No.

And no.

,In fact this move will backfire spectacularly on Google and USA.

,Before I explain why, first we should understand that Donald Trump thrives on chaos.

Thatu2019s part of his business model, to come into a negotiation and unsettle all the negotiating parties.

He canu2019t win fairly and never does.

He wins through deceit, deception and despicable behaviour.

His corruption is proven.

,Trump has declared Huawei a threat to AMERICAN security, simply to win a trade war.

Huawei, like any good technology company, updates cloud based architecture by pushing content to servers.

All technology companies do this.

There is no security threat.

,Conversely,,Google owns Boston Dynamics which contracts to DARPA, the military research part of US government.

Right now, google are making killer robots.

Google also has invasive use and exploitation of user data.

,Ironic isnu2019t it.

,Huaweiu2019s sin is that they have become world leaders in 5G, well ahead of USA.

,This is important because 5G sets a standard for communication that will fuel iOT devices and therefore super charge blockchain and cryptocurrency.

,The 5G standard is for a minimum capacity of one million Devices per square kilometre.

,Which means that suddenly we will have billions of smart devices with ai and machine learning now able to serve humanity.

,Trump is afraid of Chinau2019s Technological superiority.

So naturally he is playing an unfair brinksmanship game, because he canu2019t win playing fair.

,Huawei is a great company doing such a great job with technology that it is cannibalising sales from competitors.

On track to be bigger than Apple as they continue.

,Which leads to why the google strategy will fail.

,Being such a great company, Huawei has the foresight to develop a contingency for the eventuality of being banned by google.

,Huawei has its own app ecosystem ready to launch immediately to 50m plus users.

,Banning Huawei will only serve to launch a competition eco system on superior hardware, thereby establishing Huawei as like the eastern version of Apple.

,Apple is optimising exciting form factors really well.

No one would argue that Apple design has become boring and hit a wall.

No new for Factoru2019s or innovations.

,Google will lose a massive user base of android and all the revenue that goes with it.

,As third world countries modernise, Chinese business philosophy of making friends and developing regional partnerships is a major competitive advantage.

,Huawei will be able to leverage openness (ironically) against USA authoritarian behaviour.

,Ironically, the secret services agencies of USA, Australia and New Zealand have breached the human rights act and broken the rules of the bill of rights and constitutional democracy, by dictating to the public and companies and judging us all for being guilty until proven innocent, by eliminating our privacy.

,So google and USA authorities are in fact biogeted and unethical, because they invasively breaching our rights of privacy.

,They feel that they can do so by activating THE LOAC.

The Laws of Armed Conflict.

If you declare a war on terror, then because you are at war, you can not follow a set of rules which diminish human rights by up to 90%.

,There are thirty human rights.

Most people wouldnu2019t know what they are, which is a bit sad, because these rules are minimum standard for what ot means to be human.

,Trump is leveraging this state of war to undermine democracy and human rights to push his aggressive agenda of authoritarian rule.

,I am a New Zealand citizen and not a US citizen, yet US law is being peddled at my local post office in Australia, with placards about anti privacy rules that Australia is following to insatiate the appetite of those who think that human rights and democracy doesnu2019t matter.

,Therefore the plight of Huawei is now becoming a flash point for reasonable people to rethink how the west is behaving, lead by Trump.

,We like Huawei.

,Huawei staff are deeply involved in helping communities to connect and evolve into a new age of digital collaboration.

,This is helping many fields from education to healing.

Without Huawei, USA companies, who are technically inferior in many fields, will gain an unfair monopoly.

,Now that google is making Huawei the underdog, there is going to be a massive backlash against AMERICAN companies, as consumers who are fed up with the decline of democracy fight back the only way they can.

,With their wallets.

,I think that consumers will vote against the monopolisation of American technology and adopt the alternate system to google.

,In fact Iu2019m banking on it.

,Donald Trump thinks he is smart.

And gen is very good at chaos.

However chaos only works if you can rattle the subject of your machinations.

China and Europe look at Trump like a petulant child.

Minds immeasurably superior to Trump and to those at US companies are rising up to bring the word together through technology.

,We are about to see regions like Africa and India rise up beyond AMERICAN technology and bypass USA tech ecosystems.

,That happened in New Zealand when kiwis were the first people in the world to experience EFTPOS.

,Then China bypassed visa and MasterCard with WeChat pay contactless mobile payments.

,As 5G launches, smart iOT devices will use ai and machine learning through big data to engage in commerce through automated smart contracts.

,Huawei technology is the epicentre of all of this.

,Donu2019t get me wrong, Huawei is hurting, but this is a resilient and visionary company with a holistic vision for serving humanity.

,That truth is going to shine through.

,The dark lies of detractors will be revealed.

List of Huawei phones with Google services 2021

The Biden administration is currently focused on limiting the pandemic u2014 which is wreaking havoc in the U.

S.

u2014 but one of the key challenges that the president-elect faces early next year is his stance on China and the ongoing trade war.

,The Trump administration enforced significant curbs on dozens of Chinese manufacturers over the last two years, including Huawei, ZTE, and more recently SMIC, Chinas largest chipmaker.

While ZTE was found to have flouted Iran sanctions u2014 which led to its inclusion in the Entity List u2014 there wasnt any evidence that Huawei was colluding with the Chinese government to install backdoors in its networking equipment.

,But Huawei was put on the Entity List anyway, and in doing so the U.

S.

ensured that the Chinese manufacturers business was significantly disrupted.

Huawei had to make do without Google services on its phones, find non-US vendors for key parts, and be left out of key markets like North America.
