    Opinion: Why Is Huawei’s American Dream So Hard to Fulfill?
    By Ouyang Hui and Li Mengjun

    http://www.caixinglobal.com/2017-08-02/101125529.html


    For any communications equipment provider, the U.S. market cannot be ignored. As the birthplace of mobile communications, the United States has the greatest innovative capabilities and most stringent communications regulatory standards. It is still one of the strongest economies in the world, with large numbers of users and strong spending power. In a sense, if products are accepted by the U.S. market, they will also be accepted by the world market.

    For Huawei, the American dream has been a long and arduous journey. It not only entails enterprise-level issues such as technology and capability, culture and communication, but also issues over industrial and political games. The communications industry often entwines with national security, resulting in an insurmountable barrier from American government’s supervision and obstruction. For U.S. operators, Huawei is a familiar but also unfamiliar name. And it seems a long way for them to understand and accept Huawei.

    Early in 1999, Huawei set up a research institute in Dallas, specializing in developing products for the American market. In June 2001, Huawei established a wholly-owned subsidiary – Future Wei – in Texas, and began selling broadband and data products to local businesses. Just as in the European market, Huawei's advantage in the U.S. was cost effectiveness.


    Huawei's advance in the U. S. market brought along doubts about its products. At the beginning of 2003, CISCO sued Huawei for violating its intellectual property in the Texas State Court. After a year and a half of patent disputes, the two sides finally reached a settlement. However, the dispute seriously affected Huawei's reputation, resulting in sluggish development of its business in the American market.

    The joint venture founded by Huawei and 3Com played a critical role in the patent dispute with CISCO. This helped Huawei directly learn the significance of alliance strategies. Huawei then began to explore the international market by way of joint-venture models. It sought opportunities cooperating with the four major U.S. operators by joining hands with other counterparts.

    In November 2003, the joint venture Huawei 3Com Communication Technology Co. Ltd. (H3C) was officially established. According to the agreement, data products would be sold in the H3C brand in the Chinese and Japanese markets, but in the 3Com brand in other markets. For Huawei, this global joint venture is of strategic importance. With the help of 3Com’s brand and global distribution channels, Huawei could offer OEM products at competitive prices for nearly 50,000 3Com channels in international markets. Since then, Huawei entered the U.S. market in a roundabout way.

    But because its business mainly served small- and midsized operators, Huawei has not yet signed a contract with any of the four major mobile operators (Verizon, ATT, Sprint and T-Mobile) which dominate the U.S. market. Huawei's strategy of opening the U. S. market by joint ventures also has produced few results. After 2008, Huawei tried to enter the U.S. through mergers and acquisitions, but was repeatedly blocked. Its landmark events are as follows:

    [​IMG]

    At this stage, the U.S. government and CFIUS hardly gave Huawei any chance for direct access to the American market. The problem facing Huawei was acute. In 2011, the U.S. Congress launched an 18-month investigation into Huawei and ZTE. The U.S. House of Representatives Intelligence Committee released a report in 2012 and declared that Huawei and ZTE products were a threat to U.S. security, warning American telecom companies not to purchase Huawei and ZTE equipment.
    Huawei's revenue from its business in the U.S. rose from $40 million in 2006 to $1.3 billion in 2011. (About $1.2 billion was from sales of smartphones, tablet PCs and similar devices). But this was minor compared to Huawei's 203.9 billion yuan (about $30 billion) of total revenue.

    Huawei acquired 3Com for two reasons. First was Huawei’s need for a globalization strategy. After several years of exploring such a strategy, Huawei found it extremely difficult and expensive to establish its own brand in European, U.S. and other developed markets. As a modern network communication technology company, 3Com had good marketing channels and a large customer base. Through the acquisition, Huawei could quickly enter the U.S. market and increase its market share.

    The second was Huawei’s need for strategic transformation. In order to adapt to the revolutionary changes taking place in the information industry, Huawei began to grow from a telecom operating network to an enterprise business and then to a consumer business. Huawei has long focused on the operator market. After completely withdrawing from H3C in February 2007 Huawei realized the importance of the enterprise market. The acquisition of 3Com just made up for Huawei losses in this market segment.

    3Com was one of the founders of modern network communications technology, which was birthed in 1979. Affected by the internet bubble, 3Com's profit-margin declined in 1999 and resulted in a negative balance sheet. In 2000, 3Com lost its technological advantage in the high-end enterprise network-equipment market, and finally withdrew from the market. It then focused primarily on faster-growing businesses such as the consumer network business. By 2002, 3Com conducted large-scale global layoffs and shifted its focus to the China market.

    On the eve of being acquired, 3Com entered financial distress. According to financial data disclosed on Sept. 20, 3Com’s sales were only $319 million and its losses reached $18.7 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2008. Meanwhile, more than 30% of revenue and 95% of profits came from H3C, while H3C's revenue came mainly from Huawei. 3Com's operations were unsustainable.

    On Sept. 28, 2007, Huawei teamed up with Bain Capital and announced an investment of $2.2 billion to bid for 3Com. Bain would hold 83.5% of 3Com’s shares, and Huawei 16.5%, with $363 million – in all-cash payment – via its wholly-owned subsidiary in Hong Kong. Huawei also reserved the right to increase its share by 5% in the future.

    At first, 3Com agreed to the deal. Six months later, however, CFIUS blocked the deal on the grounds that it was a threat to the U.S. government's information security. Later, Bain was forced to back out of the deal, which was aborted. On Nov. 12, 2009, 3Com was bought by Hewlett-Packard for $2.7 billion.

    The rise of American protectionism and the “China threat theory” are the main reasons for the failure of the merger and acquisition attempts. As a veteran telecom equipment provider, 3Com had been providing computer anti-intrusion detection equipment for the Pentagon and the U.S. Army and intelligence departments. Concerns over the threats that these critical computer networks could pose led the U.S. to come forward and block the acquisitions. Meanwhile, Huawei’s leader, Ren Zhengfei, a retired military veteran from China, exacerbated concerns among U.S. regulatory authorities.

    Furthermore, Huawei's opaque management presented problems for regulators. As a fully independent unlisted private company – the only unlisted one in the Fortune Global 500 – Huawei had long taken a low-key gesture, avoiding media publicity, and refusing to publish its detailed shareholder structure, saying that its shares were held entirely by its staff. This was difficult for the U.S. government to permit.

    Finally, Huawei's design for its 3COM deal also raised concern among regulators in the U.S. After the deal, Huawei held only 16.5% of H3C shares. In fact, it maintained a very close relationship with H3C in both personnel and business. For example, most H3C employees and 30% of its sales revenue came from Huawei. U.S. regulators worried that after the acquisition, Huawei's influence on 3COM would be more than was warranted from its shareholding percentage.

    Despite all the obstacles in the past, Huawei is still trying to enter the U.S., but in different ways. Ren Zhengfei still places great hope on Huawei mobile phones entering the American market. He stressed in an internal speech that “the whole Huawei company can break the blockade of the United States only by making the frontline sharp. Otherwise, the company will remain so-so and will not break any blockade.”

    Where will Huawei place its “sharp frontline”? And when will its American dream come true? This is not only an American dream for Huawei, but for many Chinese enterprises as well.

    Huawei likely to outpace Apple to become 2nd largest smartphone vendor in 3Q17
    Max Wang, Taipei; Steve Shen, DIGITIMES [Thursday 10 August 2017]

    http://www.digitimes.com/news/a20170810PD205.html

    Huawei is likely to outpace Apple to become the second largest smartphone vendor globally in the third quarter of 2017 as sales of China-based vendor's high-end P- and M-series as well as the more affordable Honor-branded models have continued to gain momentum, according to sources from Taiwan's handset supply chain.

    Huawei captured the third position in the second quarter of 2017 with shipments totaling 38.5 million units and taking an 11.3% share globally, according to IDC. By doing so, it managed to narrow its shipment gap with Apple to a mere 2.5 million units in the second quarter, during which Apple shipped 41 million units for a 12% share.

    In China alone, Huawei saw its smartphone shipments grow 22.6% on year to 23.5 million units in the second quarter of 2017, accounting for a 21% share. In contrast, Apple saw its shipments in the market decline 7.6% to eight million units for 7.1% share.

    Huawei also performed well in other markets outside China in the first half of 2017, with its shipments in Southeast Asia, Japan and Korea growing over 45% on year, respectively, in these areas.

    Additionally, Huawei's smartphone shipments to Europe as a whole expanded 18% on year in the first six months of 2017. In particular, it doubled its shipments in Germany, Finland and Poland during the period, indicated the sources.

    Buoyed by seasonal factors, Huawei is expected to continue to ramp up its shipments to over 40 million units in the third quarter of 2017, the sources estimated.

    On the contrary, Apple is likely to see its shipments dip slightly in the third quarter from the 41 million units it shipped a quarter earlier as many consumers may withhold their purchases until the fourth quarter when the next-generation iPhones are available. This is will offer a chance for Huawei to outperform Apple in terms of shipment volume in the third quarter, commented the sources.

    Market share of Chinese handset makers rises to 51% in first quarter

    http://www.thehindubusinessline.com...ndian-mobile-manufacturers/article9732247.ece
    MUMBAI, JUNE 21:
    A rapidly increasing market share of Chinese players and fierce competition have adversely impacted Indian mobile phone manufacturers’ business profile.

    There is a complete change in the market position of the top five smartphone players in FY17, with Micromax Informatics, Lava International and Karbonn Mobiles being replaced by Xiaomi, Vivo Mobile India and Oppo Mobiles India, according to a study by India Ratings and Research (Ind-Ra).

    In the first quarter of calendar year 2017, Chinese mobile phone manufacturers’ market share was about 51 per cent.

    While the global vendor Samsung Electronics remained the market leader with 28 per cent share in the first quarter (25 per cent in the year-ago quarter), the share of Indian vendors were downsized to a mere 14 per cent from last year’s 40 per cent.

    Lenovo also sustained its position due to the established brands and products in the diversified price segments. Oppo and Vivo India have recorded sales increases of seven to nine times over FY17, respectively. Ind-Ra expects Vivo India and Oppo’s smartphone sales to grow by around 40-50 per cent over FY18.

    The success of Chinese players can be attributed to their strong brand through substantial advertising expenditure and sales channel building funded by the sponsors. Chinese smartphone makers enjoy a debt-light capital structure and healthy liquidity due to the long payable period extended by their suppliers, the study said.

    Better technological capabilities of the Chinese players leading to superior product offerings have also contributed to their success, it said, adding that large investments by Chinese players towards brand building and manufacturing facilities in India depict their long-term strategic intent.

    Indian smartphone makers have been slow in reacting to ongoing product innovation in the market, and are further constrained by limited marketing budgets.

    Demand for VoLTE handsets
    Reliance Jio Infocomm’s free data and voice services has pushed up 4G VoLTE-enabled smartphone demand, despite headwinds of slowing feature-phone-to-smart phone migration rates and liquidity shock due to demonetisation.

    Average data prices bottomed at around ₹130 per GB in first quarter of 2017, providing a stimulus to smartphone sales. The incumbent telcos are also offering differentiated data offerings for 4G smartphone users, hence pushing a higher smartphone replacement demand (to 4G from 3G) and faster migration rate from feature phones to smartphones.

    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Xiaomi, Vivo, Oppo, Huawei among the fastest growing brands
    • Overall global smartphone shipments grew 3 percent YoY
    • Samsung led the market by volume with a market share of 22 percent

    While overall global smartphone shipments grew 3 percent Year-over-Year (YoY) reaching 365 million units in the second quarter of 2017, Chinese brands have emerged as the dominant force, making a dent in Apple's market share, a report said on Wednesday.




    According to the market research firm Counterpoint Research, Chinese smartphone brands marked a record 48 percent market share worldwide with India, South Asia and Africa remaining as key focus geographies.




    Xiaomi (60 percent), Vivo (45 percent), Oppo (33 percent) and Huawei (20 percent) were the fastest growing brands with increasing overseas smartphones shipments (YoY).




    "Chinese brands have been successful in not only cementing their positions in their home country but also managing to expand beyond mainland China at the same time," said Tarun Pathak, Associate Director, Counterpoint Research, in a statement.




    "They have backed their channel strategies with aggressive marketing spend in both above-the-line and below-the-line campaigns," he added.




    [​IMG]




    According to Counterpoint, these brands will continue to expand their reach beyond China during the second half of this year.




    Samsung led the smartphone market by volume with a market share of 22 percent. However, its shipments recorded only a marginal growth of 4 percent annually during the quarter.




    Apple's global smartphone market share declined due to seasonality.




    On Tuesday, Apple revealed third quarter results, saying iPhone sales were up 1.6 percent to 41.03 million. The Cupertino-based tech giant sold 40.4 million iPhones a year earlier.




    "Demand for older generation iPhones remained strong in markets like Russia, India, Vietnam, Indonesia and other fast-growing markets," Pathak noted.




    "Many users are likely to delay their purchase of a new iPhone in anticipation of the much awaited iPhone 10th anniversary edition which is expected to be a super-cycle for Apple - though supply-side challenges might limit the initial volumes available," he added.




    Apple's decline in China continues as Oppo, Vivo and Huawei posted record Q2 2017 shipments in the country.

    How Chinese brands took over Indian smartphone market in 3 years
    The rise of Chinese smartphone brands is raising alarming concerns for the Indian smartphone brands since the Chinese brands which had around 7% market share in the first quarter of 2014 now have almost 51% market share as of first quarter of 2017

    http://telecom.economictimes.indiat...-indian-smartphone-market-in-3-years/59756251


    NEW DELHI: The rise of Chinese smartphone brands is raising alarming concerns for the Indian smartphone brands since the Chinese brands which had around 7% market share in the first quarter of 2014 now have almost 51% market share as of first quarter of 2017, as per data shared by Counterpoint in ET Telecom’s webinar.

    Indian smartphone brands on the other hand have witnessed a steep fall where they once ruled the market with 49% share in 2014 which has now declined to 16% in 2017.

    “With the help of both offline and online channel push, Chinese brands have been able to get 51% of the smartphone sales in a matter of 3 years. Chinese brands enjoy economies of scale due to their strong presence in their home market which allows them to keep the price low in the Indian market,” said Neil Shah, Research Director, Counterpoint in the webinar.

    Six things that telcos must do to compete in a 5G era

    What is cellular IoT and what are its use cases

    Since the launch of ‘Make in India’ in 2014, more than 50 new manufacturing facilities have been set up in India as compared to just 2 in 2014.

    However, there is a need for the domestic players to move from SKD manufacturing to CKD manufacturing to be able to get more control over design and benefit from local players, explained Shah. “There is also a need for duty structure on components to be changed,” he added.

    Talking about the recently launched JioPhone, Shah said that the phone will slow down the upgrade cycle from a feature phone to a smartphone since JioPhone offers an alternative to users and a midway of sorts which can impact the transition from feature phones to smartphones.

    The phone is expected to directly impact the domestic feature phone brands like Micromax, Lava and Intex. However, according to Shah, Chinese brands can compete well with JioPhone but Indian brands are not well equipped to deal with it and thus will be impacted massively.

    According to Counterpoint’s data, Rs 8000-Rs 15000 is the most popular price band in India where Rs 8000- Rs 10000 constitutes 25% and Rs 10000 to Rs 150000 has 30% share among the various price bands. Interestingly, the Rs 8000-Rs 15000 price band is dominated by Chinese brands such as Xiaomi, Oppo, vivo and Lenovo together capturing 49% share.

    Moreover, Chinese brands are outspending local players when it comes to promotions especially with brands like Oppo and vivo which are extensively doing promotions in cricket and Bollywood. While vivo had an advertising spend of $ 78 million in 2016, Oppo had spent $66 million on advertising last year.

    Domestic players like Mircromax, Lava and Intex on the other hand had humble spends which could not exceed $30 million individually in 2016.

    As per an estimate given by Shah, Chinese smartphone brands will capture 65%-70% of the Indian smartphone market by 2020 if they continue to grow at this pace. For Indian brands to succeed in the game, they will have to become vertical integrated and focus on R&D to succeed in the long-run, as discussed in webinar.

    Smartphone shipments in India reached 29 million units and grew a 15% year-on-year during first quarter of 2017, according to Counterpoint data.

    Huawei Mate 10 & Mate 10 Pro LEAK: Specs, Design, Features & EPIC Display

    RUMOURS Paul Briden 11:23, 28 Aug 2017
    [​IMG]
    The Huawei Mate 10 is coming in October with a massive display, super-fast processor, and AR features
    There are good reasons why Huawei is currently the world's third biggest smartphone manufacturer in terms of sales; the firm is innovative, it has good brand presence, and it is constantly working to improve its devices. The Huawei Mate series has proven tremendously popular, of course this is partly due to the love that large-scale "phablets" get in the Asian market, where Huawei has a strong foothold. Nonetheless, it's proven a popular brand over in the West as well, with big and gorgeous displays, massive battery life, and the use of Huawei's fantastic Leica-branded dual-camera hardware. The next in the series will be the Huawei Mate 10.

    The latest reports coming from Huawei's home nation of China give us some interesting new information regarding the Huawei Mate 10. Allegedly October 16 announcement will not be a single-device launch, instead we will see both the Huawei Mate 10 and a Huawei Mate Pro taking to the stage. It's not hugely surprising given the predominance of multi-phone series these days and also given that Huawei's previous Huawei Mate and Huawei P flagship series have both seen additional Pro editions, as well as Porsche Design editions; we wouldn't be surprised if a Porsche Edition Mate 10 also makes an appearance at some point.

    According to the details, the Huawei Mate 10, despite its vast "EntireView" display rumoured before, may not actually feature an edge-to-edge design. Apparently this is the standout feature of the Huawei Mate 10 Pro model, while the regular Huawei Mate 10 may have a more "traditional" design like the Huawei Mate 9. It's interesting as the firm's CEO previously confirmed the EntireView display for the Mate 10, but we may be looking at some crossed wires here.

    The source also says the Mate 10 Pro will have a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner as the front will be dominated by the screen, leaving no room for it on the fascia. As a parting shot, the source also said a gold colour option will be available, although this wasn't specified as being for the Mate 10 or the Mate 10 Pro in particular.

    Reliable tipster @evleaks has stated on Twitter that the Huawei Mate 10 has an internal codename; it's dubbed "Marcel", which immediately has us thinking of Ross' monkey from Friends (a very current reference, we know).

    Renders have leaked allegedly showing the Huawei Mate 10 design and that edge-to-edge display is looking fantastic!

    [​IMG]
    The leak comes via Android Crunch citing a Chinese tipster on Weibo, which also provided some more spec details; Huawei's new Kirin 970 SoC is said to be onboard, along with a 6.1-inch QHD display, and 6GB of RAM with 64GB built-in storage.

    Huawei 10nm Kylin 970 processor Secret GPU enhanced Mate 10 starting
    C7CC | June 27, 2017 | News | 0 Comments

    Huawei Kylin 960 processor with a first-mover advantage, the success of a short time in the top Android phone SoC performance king of the throne. But with the snapdragon 835 and Exynos 8895 and other new generation of processors, Kirin 960 although the CPU performance is enough to see, but the GPU / baseband and manufacturing processes have a significant gap.
    In accordance with the traditional, Huawei should be officially released in the second half of this year Kirin 970, and in the end of the Mate 10 on the starting. So, this Kirin 970 can be the same as the Kirin 960 to achieve the opponent’s overtake it?
    Analyst Pan Jiutang just said in the Weibo, Kirin 970 will be manufactured using 10nm process, while the GPU will be enhanced to make up for the current GPU performance is not to the shortcomings of power.

    [​IMG]

    At the same time, he also said that the CPU upgrade in recent years slowdown in the proportion of the entire SoC chip, whether the new architecture is not so important. This means that the Kirin 970 should not use the new Cortex-A75 architecture, but with the same Kirin 960 Cortex-A73 architecture.
    This way, Huawei is completely no first-mover advantage, so in terms of performance compared to snapdragon 835 and Exynos 8895 will not have a fundamental transcendence.
    In the most important GPU, due to the current gap is relatively large (Exynos 8895 is Mali-G71 MP20, and Kirin 960 is Mali-G71 MP8).
    The last is the manufacturing process, the Kirin 970 is 10nm, snapdragon 835 and Exynos 8895 is 10nm, assuming the same size of the transistor, the actual power consumption, fever and other performance should not be much difference.
    In addition, in the rumors, early next year snapdragon 845 and the real Exynos 9 series will be released …

    Huawei U.S. Leader On Winning Against Cisco Through 'Openness', AWS Relationship And U.S. Market 'Commitment'

    byMark Haranas on August 9, 2017, 7:00 pm EDT

    How is Huawei winning over market share from Cisco?

    One thing that's really resonated well with the industry globally and customers in general, is our focus is on delivering a truly open solution. A lot of vendors will claim open capabilities, in that they implement an API or they have a couple partners here or there. We've taken our approach to open to a whole different level. We provide and design end-to-end solutions across the board -- whether it's a data center, the WAN or the campus -- you can buy an end-to-end Huawei turnkey solution.

    However, understanding that true enterprise networks run [several vendors'] technologies, and typically best-of-breed that varies depending on the needs of the customer, we built our solutions to be completely modular and interchangeably open ... you can take any core component and interchange that with a third-party that implements a public standard, or with many third parties within a wide ecosystem that we're building, to develop a value-based solution for an enterprise … That openness and ability to provide the widest array of choice and flexibility has resonated extremely well, globally, with all of our customer-base.
