Headline Mar 09, 2015/ ''' SHHHHH : QUIET PLEASE! -GIANT HUAWEI IS HERE!! '''




LARGELY UNKNOWN TO the world and even U.S. consumers, Huawei not too long ago was even barely known to the Chinese.

But the telecommunications behemoth is the chief rival to Sweden's Ericsson for top share in the global market for telecom infrastructure  -the plumbing  for the world's mobile phone networks.

With over and growing $35.4 billion in sales, more than Goldman Sachs or McDonald's, Huawei likes to brag that a *third of the world's population is hooked up to networks featuring its gear*.

Huawei is also the world's third largest smartphone company, behind Samsung and Apple.

Huawei's rapid rise and global reach is making U.S. lawmakers extremely nervous. In 2012, Ruppersberger's committee concluded that Huawei's equipment '' could undermine core U.S. national security interests.''

Huawei hasn't been shut out of the American market entirely; U.S. sales of its products topped $1.3 billion in 2011. But that represents a mere 4% of the firm's total revenue, and no major U.S. service provider-

Uses Huawei-made hardware in its networks.

Huawei says it would never spy on the U.S. Countries from South Korea to the U.K, have used its gear without incident. 

''There is no evidence that Huawei has ever been complicit in abetting or conducting espionage on anyone,'' says Eric Anderson, author of Sinophobia : 

The Huawei Story and a professor at the National Intelligence University in Washington, a federal institution that trains national-security officials. 

But fears that China is seeking opportunities for digital skulduggery have been exacerbated by the explosion in Chinese Cyber attacks on the U.S. government and businesses.

In 2012, President Barrack Obama and Treasury Secretary Jack Lew warned China to stop its online aggression, and Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel called for U.S. intelligence assets to be repositioned from Middle East to Asia.

Just in 2011, the U.S. Justice Department had charged more than 100 individuals or corporate defendants with stealing trade secrets or dual-use technology for China or Chinese entities.

With the links between Huawei and the Chinese state and military still murky, its critics are convinced that the company is a Trojan horse. As a major global telecom player-

 Huawei is certainly too big to ignore. Is it also too big to trust?

The controversy over Huawei is, in part, a product of the broader decline in American manufacturing.

The U.S. telecom Industry, like so many others, is increasingly reliant on Chinese manufacturing. While Cisco systems is a major player, most companies in the industry are not American but-

Swedish(Ericsson), French (Alcatel-Lucent), Finnish (Nokia Siemens) or, in Huawei's case, Chinese. In 2006, Alcatel acquired what had been the U.S. leader, Lucent Technologies.

To the Chinese, Huawei's rise is a prime example of the country's ability to rapidly catch up to the West.

To its critics, Huawei is a creation of the Chinese government, not free market-ingenuity.

A 2005 report from the  Rand Corp, characterized Huawei as part of a ''digital triangle'' composed of commercial technology companies, state research institutes and the Chinese military-

All aimed at upgrading China's defense capabilities. 

Huawei denies having any special ties the PLA. Never having listed on any stock exchange, its management is not obligated- to share its finances or other information about the company 

Under a persistent spotlight, the firm has started opening up by printing an annual report with financial statements and hiring an army of smooth-talking spokes people.

The Honour and Serving of the  ''operational research'' continues. Thank you for reading and see you on the following one.

With respectful dedication to the Enigmatic Entrepreneurs of China. See Ya all on !WOW!  -the World Students Society Computers-Internet-Wireless:
