The Chinese tech giant keeps claiming that the latest clamp down of the United States on its products in America was not about security, but rather with unauthorized trade protection.
The United States was claiming that the Huawei represented a security risk, since its CEO was briefly a member of the Chinese army. In the meanwhile, the Chinese company revealed details of its performance last year. Press reports say that Huawei didn’t actually have to do so, but it did in order to show transparency and allay any security concerns about its business.
According to the company’s chief financial officer Cathy Meng, Huawei was frustrated about security complaints from the United States. She pointed out that Americans pay almost twice what Europeans do for 3rd- and 4th-generation mobile phone services thanks to trade protection, which interferes with free competition and harms end users and consumers.
Outside the United States, the Chinese giant has grown rapidly in developing countries and is currently increasing sales in the EU. In result, its profit last year rose 33% to $2.48 billion with sales of $35.36 billion. Huawei is a private company and they decided to release more financial details in a bid to ease concerns of the United States about the company. The results conference was the first of such kind for the giant and part of its commitment to transparency.
The company was founded back in 1987 by a former Chinese military engineer, though he hasn’t been in the army particularly long. Security concerns have also spread to Australia, which has always believed what the United States tells it and the Chinese giant was barred from bidding to work on the National Broadband Network.
Huawei issued a pledge in 2012 not to co-operate with spying. It indicated that it serves 45 of the 50 largest telecoms carriers in the world and spends a fortune on Research & Development. Back in 2012, only 1/3 of sales came from its native China market, while Europe, the Middle East and Africa accounted for another 35% of sales. 17% were sales in other Asia-Pacific markets and only 15% came from the Americas.

|I've been trying to follow this one for a while now. I'm not sure what it is the states are more afraid of: a communist China sneaking in their back door, or somebody else taking all their money. I'm kidding myself. It's all about the money.|

Huawei was banned from bidding because it had failed to receive clearance from ASIO at the time bidding was finalised. The Australia Security & Intelligence Organisation (ASIO) must clear companies from countries with known security/espionage concerns before any business is conducted (much like the CIA does in the USA). Huawei failed to take into consideration the time needed to receive clearance in their attempt to place a bid. They weren't 'BANNED' as such, merely banned until clearance was received, which hadn't occurred yet when bidding was complete.

|its all funny considering the US gov is themselves monitoring every call/txt/email sent within the us|
|The routers they manufacture are really poo.... i had one .. put it in a recycling bin...so its prob back in china by now|
|Huawei is just another chinese company that makes defective products.|
any provider or country would be better off not using Huawei products because most are defective.
of course, when they work, it works ok, but they don't work long enough, or entire models are defective.
that goes for their modems and bts (a bts is a base transceiver station, its at the cell site, and yes gsm has bts also, but a umts bts is called a nodeB)
|timgar, any country that wants to have a telephone connection to the US must provide a connection to a msc (swtich) to the NSA, if they don't that country can not have a connection for calls to the US.|
that means the US is doing it to every country even if its not a call to or in the US.
|bubfred, china is the only country that produces ascorbic acid (vitamin C) because its an not economical product anymore.||
