As we all know, since last year, Huawei has encountered great pressure to survive. Under the all-round pressure from the United States, not only the mobile phone business, but also Huawei's core operator business, which is 5G network technology, has been affected.

This year is the year when the mainstream countries in the world set off a wave of 5G network construction, and it is a good time for communication equipment manufacturers such as Huawei, Ericsson, and Nokia to "stake the field".

However, Huawei was hit by the United States, and survival has become Huawei's highest goal.

According to the global 5G communication equipment market share data released by the market research firm Dell'Oro in the first three quarters of 2020, the US crackdown on Huawei has paid off!

In the first three quarters of this year, Huawei's market share in 5G communication equipment was 35.7%, 43.7% and 32.8% respectively. Compared with the previous two quarters, Huawei's market share in the third quarter declined.

Competitor Ericsson's market share jumped by 10% to 30.7%, just one step away from No. 1 Huawei.

Looking at the world, many countries have made choices under the pressure of the United States to keep Huawei out of the 5G construction. Developed countries in Europe, led by the United Kingdom, France, and Italy, mostly sided with the United States and introduced restrictions requiring telecom operators to gradually replace Huawei's communications equipment.

In such a situation, one European power has withstood the pressure and refused to exclude Huawei. Instead, it enacted a bill to "give the green light" to Huawei.

According to the German "Economic Weekly", Germany passed an "IT security law" on the 17th. This regulation allows the production and technology of overseas companies such as Huawei to conduct business in Germany, but all communication equipment manufacturers must ensure network security.

This has been very difficult for Huawei. European countries such as the United Kingdom, France, and Italy have directly introduced targeted laws that do not allow Huawei to participate in network construction.

Germany, on the other hand, does not discriminate and provides Huawei with a level playing field for business. In terms of competition, Huawei has never been afraid of anyone. For more than 30 years since its establishment, the grassroots Huawei has cut a bloody path from the communication equipment market surrounded by giants through its own efforts, and has successfully climbed to the top of the world's largest telecommunications equipment. The throne of equipment manufacturers.

The worst fear is that some countries do not even give the opportunity to compete, leaving Huawei helpless, such as Sweden. A piece of bad news came recently, Sweden once again said no to Huawei.

In October this year, the Swedish Telecom Regulatory Authority announced additional conditions for telecom operators to participate in the 5G spectrum auction, not allowing the use of Huawei and ZTE's communication equipment, and requiring telecom operators to remove Huawei and ZTE from existing networks by 2025. ZTE equipment.

Huawei chose to appeal Sweden's decision, and then the Swedish Administrative Court issued a temporary injunction order to stop the Telecommunication Regulatory Authority's additional conditions, which led to the postponement of Sweden's 5G spectrum auction.

However, on December 16, the Swedish Court of Appeal ruled to cancel the temporary injunction issued by the Administrative Court, which meant that the door to the Swedish 5G market was once again closed to Huawei.

Sweden claims to be a "permanently neutral country", but has shown strong prejudice in its treatment of Huawei. Neutral countries are not neutral, what a joke! This is not a practice that is in the interests of the country. Although it is pleasing to the United States, it makes the country's 5G construction pay huge time and economic costs.

And Sweden's behavior is not in the interests of its own companies. Although Ericsson, Huawei's biggest competitor, is a Swedish company, it also has a huge share in China's communications market. According to the bidding of the three major operators, Ericsson has a market share of about 10% in China's communications market, second only to Huawei and ZTE, and is the third largest supplier of communications equipment in the Chinese market.

Moreover, the size of China's communications market is huge, far beyond what Sweden, which has a population of only 10 million, can compare with. Sweden treats Huawei like this, isn't it worried that Ericsson will be treated the same in the Chinese market?

In contrast, Germany's approach is both in line with its own interests and takes care of Huawei. The two countries' approach is judged against each other. For Huawei, the loss of the Swedish communications market with a population of 10 million will not cause much economic loss. But Sweden's behavior is worthy of vigilance, so as not to trigger a domino effect and cause more countries to follow Sweden!

Therefore, Huawei should stick to Ren Zhengfei's decision. In an interview last year, Ren Zhengfei was asked the question of other countries "standing in line". Ren Zhengfei believes that the east is not bright and the west is bright. Huawei does not force countries that do not use Huawei equipment, but will serve those countries that accept Huawei. Good products and services give back the trust of these countries.

The fragrance of wine is not afraid of deep alleys, not to mention that Huawei has been "promoted" by the United States all over the world for two years. As long as Huawei stabilizes its mentality and situation, lays a solid foundation, and makes up for its shortcomings step by step. Sooner or later, the balance of victory will be tilted towards Huawei. 5G has just begun, and Huawei still has a long way to go!
