Currently 5G infrastructure equipment corporations believe that, in the next few years, LTE technology in Asia will be replaced by high-speed, low-latency 5G telecommunications technology, thereby helping many industries can grow stronger, from e-sports, playing Lien Quan on smartphones, to assisting self-propelled vehicles to communicate with each other and even machine surgery, remote control doctors. But if you want to take a piece of 5G device market share, big corporations like Nokia, Ericsson and ZTE and Samsung will face a huge counterbalance: Huawei.
In the US and Western countries, Huawei is cornering, but in Asia, Latin America and Africa, nothing stops them from negotiating with telecom operators to sign lucrative deals. telecommunications. Not every country on these continents is obsessed with cyber security like the US or its allies, so Huawei is still capable of getting rich in this market, the only problem is that they have enough components. assemble equipment after being stopped by US corporations in turn.
In terms of the number of contracts signed to transfer 5G technology, only Nokia and Ericsson compete with Huawei, with Huawei's 40 contracts, compared with 38 of Nokia and 18 of Ericsson. You may have noticed that Viettel 5G test has announced the use of Ericsson devices. However, in 2018, Huawei spent about $ 15 billion to develop products, much higher than the combined figure of $ 9 billion of both Nokia and Ericsson, so that Huawei could produce more efficient devices with the much cheaper price. That's one of the reasons for Europe, many operators are still hesitating whether to follow the US to ban Huawei, considering the huge economic benefits of shaking hands with Huawei.
Meanwhile, Nokia and Ericsson said that in order to capture the Asian market, they must work closely with the network operators and equipment manufacturers, while bringing prestige in the past to convince them. customer. Kal Sahala, head of sales for Nokia Asia Pacific and Japan, said that the speed of 5G technology outside Japan, Korea and China is happening very slowly, so that they see potential in the Vietnam, Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand and Singapore markets.
“We are competing with other firms, including Huawei, and in many markets we have an advantage. This proves our position, as well as the 5G technology that we provide. I don't think operators are only interested in the costs they have to spend, but also the quality, reliability, security and the platforms we can provide, " Sahala share with ZDNet.
As for Huawei, many sources said the US embargo was prompting Huawei to put many projects on the waiting list, including the enterprise server segment. But from now until the ban comes into effect, Huawei can still import a large number of components to serve the production process. Without the US ban, it's really hard for other corporations to compete with the 5G infrastructure market with Huawei.
