Apple has decided to end a bitter legal war against Google and Android phone makers, and to turn away from patent tactics that have cost the smartphone industry billions of dollars, according to reports and new court filings.
Huawei sees an opportunity in the industrial internet of things, so its buying a U.K. company specializing in sensor and meter networking for a reported $25 million.
Huawei has taken over the no. 3 smartphone sales spot in the world and has no plans to changes its strategy of using Google Android. Windows Phone hasn’t been profitable for the company which also sees Samsung’s Tizen play a lost cause.
Only have $300 to spend on an off-contract phone? If you don’t mind a large handset, Huawei’s Ascend Mate2 is worth the look. It has some advanced features, a solid camera and a massive battery along with LTE support.
Without much carrier backing, Huawei isn’t a household name in the U.S., at least not yet. That’s OK, the company has already surpassed all smartphone makers in terms of sales, save for Samsung and Apple. Plus it’s continuing to grow.
Ericsson has jumped on the 5G marketing bandwagon, touting a network lab test of a 5 Gbps wireless connection. It’s an impressive feat, but we’re still not any closer to figuring out what 5G actually is.
This week saw the LG G Watch specs possibly leak while two new devices were launched. Say hello to the new Samsung Galaxy Tab S slates with super AMOLED screens and Huawei’s Ascend Mate2 for $299 off-contract.
802.11ax will focus on individual device speeds rather than overall network capacity, creating a better wireless broadband experience, according to the Wi-Fi Alliance.
The Huawei Ascend Mate 2 has a battery that’s so big it can actually charge your other devices. And bonus: It looks like this phone is actually headed to the US.
Though Huawei has already said it cares not a whit for the U.S. telecom equipment market, its CEO made its stance official…
There won’t be any commercially-available handsets that support such speeds for at least a year, but EE’s claim to the LTE-Advanced crown is more plausible than most.
The mobile patent wars, which appeared to be dying down, just exploded like never before. It’s too soon to say if Google or its rivals will win, but one thing is certain: consumers will lose.
Tellabs was a high flyer during the telecom and networking bubble of the 1990s and early 2000s. Now it is being sold for proverbial nickels and dimes to a private equity firm that is building up an optical portfolio, betting on a new boom.
While other Microsoft partners have stayed mum since news of the Nokia phone business purchase hit, Huawei has broken the silence. One company exec says it will continue to license and build Windows Phones. Perhaps it’s counting on its strong brand in China?
Software-defined networking (SDN) represents the next big wave of networking investment: $2.45 billion by 2018, according to GigaOM Research. ANd with standards still evolving, products still developing, partnerships still forming, and buyers still learning, the SDN market remains wide open.
Using an LTE-Advanced technique called carrier aggregation Turkcell managed to squeeze close to a gigabit of downlink bandwidth out of a lab network. Don’t get your hopes up though. This technology still isn’t ready for prime time.
The UK’s national security advisor is to check whether it’s smart to have Huawei staff test Huawei equipment for security loopholes. When even the head of the ITU says we’re in a state of cyberwar, you can see why.
Not many tech startups come out of Belgium, but Accelleran has assembled a team of Technicolor veterans to build a small cell for the lesser known version of 4G: time division-LTE.
The €1.7 billion deal will take the Siemens out of Nokia Siemens Networks in the coming quarter, assuming regulators show the green light. The early market response has been positive.
Huawei has set up a testing facility in the U.K. to assure security services that its widespread networking kit is backdoor-free. Only it turns out “the Cell” doesn’t have a whole lot of oversight.
Companies big and small are still spending money on networking and storage hardware, voice and conferencing systems, except they are not paying as much, thanks to a brutal price war down in the trenches.
Intense global competition and changing market structures are forcing companies to engage in much more innovation activity. At the same time they are having to address much narrower markets because of the long tail effect. That creates the apparent paradox of broader innovation and narrower innovation. This report defines the terms of the new innovation debate, discusses the key drivers of innovation for large companies, and offers advice on how to manage a more complex process.
There are only so many companies left that can build a decent mobile network. Banning Huawei from the U.S. seriously skews the competitive balance in an already off-kilter industry.
The $150 handset is cheap for a Windows Phone 8 device, but still pricey compared with entry-level smartphones and semi-smartphones from Nokia, BlackBerry and Huawei itself.
Huawei has become an official partner of CERN openlab, with the physics research facility giving the thumbs-up to the Chinese firm’s exascale-targeting, mass object-based storage infrastructure.
IDC reported its smartphone sales data for the final quarter of 2012 and if I gave you three guesses as to who increased sales the most from the year ago quarter, you still might not guess right.
The Korean manufacturer’s supremacy in the smartphone business is now entrenched, while the demand it’s seeing in other lines provides a timely reminder of a wider shift from the desktop to mobile.
Android was everywhere at the 2013 International CES, but the bigger names didn’t offer much this time. Instead, companies like Huawei, ZTE and Vizio showed off new phones. Meanwhile, Dropbox gets a nice upgrade on Android and I share my favorite new Android device from CES.
Designing a new class of device, the really big smartphone, Samsung has owned this growing market. Huawei wants in though and it pulled out all the stops: The company’s new Ascend Mate smartphone has a whopping 6.1-inch display that works even if you’re wearing gloves.
One expected debut for next month’s Consumer Electronics Show happened a little early as a Huawei exect showed off the company’s newest smartphone. The device has a whopping 6.1-inch display which is great for most mobile activities, but won’t likely fit in a front pants pocket.
Huawei’s Helsinki facility will focus on ‘optimizing’ Android and Windows Phone 8. The investment beautifully symbolizes the telecoms industry’s shift out of Europe, and the surplus of talent that has created.
Everyone may be focused on the forthcoming T-Mobile iPhone, but T-Mo revealed a strategy Thursday that will have far greater implications for the mobile industry. By eliminating subsidies it’s changing the way phones and services are sold and altering the consumer’s relationship to the carrier.
A private equity firm will pick up the optical business for an undisclosed amount, relieving NSN of one its last remaining ties to wireline networking. NSN’s focus on 4G appears to paying off. In the last year, it’s won key contracts and turned record profits.
What happens when infrastructure startups disappear? Innovation doesn’t stop, but the industry definitely loses a critical font of ideas that challenge the big vendor mentality and established standards. Services innovation is already outpacing network innovation — the problem is only going to get worse.
The U.S. Congress is set to release a report that tells U.S. firms not to buy gear from Chinese telecoms vendors Huawei and ZTE. But is the report a real assessment of a threat or just economic protectionism? Here’s how we might be able to tell.
4G isn’t the future anymore. A consortium of companies is to set up a ‘5G Innovation Centre’ at the University of Surrey, with the aim of making mobile broadband communications faster and more efficient.
Huawei is reportedly giving some serious thought to listing itself on a US or international exchange, exposing its books and ownership structure to the world. An IPO won’t silence all of Huawei’s critics, but it would help the company close equipment contracts and acquisitions.
Cisco’s VNI graph shows mobile data growing 18 times over the next five years, and it makes a strong case for the need of mobile networks to evolve to reflect the transition from voice- to data-centric usage models. Yet to make these fundamental changes in operating networks, it is crucial to move beyond compelling graphics and understand what requirements new usage models impose on the network infrastructure. To successfully address the increase in data traffic, operators need to act on multiple fronts, because no single solution will be sufficient in isolation.
You have probably never heard of Yulong or its Coolpad brand, but in China it’s a top 3 smartphone maker beating out even the iPhone in device sales. On Tuesday Coolpad arrived in the US on the MetroPCS LTE network with its first budget smartphone.
Samsung just won its first European infrastructure contract, opening up a region its never competed in before. The Korean vendor still has a long way to go to reach its goal of being a top 3 mobile equipment maker, but establishing itself in Europe can’t hurt.
T-Mobile is giving its rather pathetic MyTouch voice-command feature a much-needed overhaul. It’s incorporating the same semantic-search technology Nuance uses in Dragon Go into Genius, allowing the voice assistant to search over 200 different content providers and understand intent rather than just words.
A security hole was found in the ZTE Score, a handset model sold on both by Metro PCS and Cricket in the U.S. The breach appears to be a “backdoor” put in by ZTE, which is already under U.S. scrutiny as a China-based company.
The Big 4 carriers took swipes at one another at CTIA Wireless, arguing over which had the faster network and whose were really 4G. Clearwire stayed out of the debate, but according to CTO John Saw the carrier is planning to shame them all.
It’s official: Ericsson is now building every major LTE network in the U.S. T-Mobile revealed today that its current 3G and HSPA+ equipment suppliers, Ericsson and Nokia Siemens Networks would handle its new $4 billion LTE rollout, deploying 37,000 next-generation base stations.
Huawei, six months after creating its enterprise networking division here in the U.S. is ready to make a big splash at Interop this year. The Chinese networking gear maker is the one thing Cisco’s CEO John Chambers fears and today’s announcements show why.
Nokia Siemens Networks plans to show off gigabit wireless speeds using the variant of of LTE-Advanced network that Clearwire plans to deploy. But don’t get too excited, too soon. These aren’t real world speeds and they’re not for handsets.
WiMAX was a big flop for Intel, but instead of giving its wounds a quick lick and chasing after the easy LTE money, Intel is investing in yet another 4G variant, time division-LTE. Why? Two reasons: Qualcomm and China.
Eighty-five percent of the global population owns mobile phones currently. This report forecasts the global handset market, examining the following regions: the Americas; Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA); and Asia-Pacific. Drivers for handset growth include an increased number of subscribers in developing countries, the rollout of 3G and 4G wireless networks, and shorter upgrade cycles for technology.
It’s no secret Apple is skilled at sucking profits out of its product lineup. But Samsung is getting better too, according to the analysts at UBS. And the two are currently dominating the handset industry when it comes to profits, with very little competition in sight.
Vectoring, a technology that eliminates crosstalk on a DSL line can boost speeds on existing copper to up to 100 Mbps. And apparently service providers are interested in testing it out, according to Telebyte, which launched the first gear capable of testing how vectored lines perform.
A new mobile hotspot from Huawei pushes the limits of current LTE technologies, offering peak speeds of 100 Mbps. The catch is that the hotspot is only available in Japan, because that’s where the only network resides that can support it.
What used to be exclusive to HTC is turning into an opportunity for its peers: T-Mobile is reportedly choosing handsets from Huawei to be part of the carrier’s myTouch smartphone lineup. The Chinese-based handset maker is slowly gaining a larger foothold in the U.S.
Martin Geddes thinks the telecom industry has reached its peak. As he explains, telecom is like the railroad business at the height of the railroad barons. It has acquired its maximum share of the economy, and the only way now is down.
Telus will launch Canada’s third LTE network on Friday, rolling out the mobile broadband technology in 14 cities from Vancouver to Halifax. It plans to expand the network throughout 2012 to cover 25 million Canadians, 71 percent of the country’s population, by year end.
With no more money from its corporate parents forthcoming and few remaining businesses to sell, Nokia Siemens Networks has gone to European and U.S. banks for the funding it needs to restructure and survive. Will $1.6 million be enough to set it on course?
CES is over, so here’s what wowed Matt and Kevin in terms of tablets, smartphones, Ultrabooks and other mobile devices. Plus Matt has pulled the SIM card from his Samsung Galaxy Nexus and put it in the…. you’ll have to listen to find out!
This week had me running around the CES event, where Android 4.0 was everywhere. New tablets with multicore chips impressed me — and could even be notebook replacements — plus a few smartphones looked incredible. Apps may start looking better to due to a Google initiative.
Given my love for 7-inch tablets, I had to swing by Huawei’s booth at the Consumer Electronics Show. The Chinese company is showing off its MediaPad tablet with Android 4.0 and beautiful IPS display. Here’s a look at the light, thin and capable 7-inch slate.
If the latest data is to be believed, the battle for high-end smartphones is essentially a tussle between Apple and Samsung. With China’s ZTE’s and Huawei’s aiming for the lower end of the business, is there is room for HTC, LG, Sony or Motorola?
Just three weeks after lowering sales and revenue expectations, HTC has reduced guidance again, and not by just a little. The holiday season in a growing market should bring about increased sales, not lower figures. So what’s the problem with HTC, and what can it do?
The mobile OS mix hasn’t changed much in October compared with the previous three months, which could mean we’re seeing smartphone market share volatility settle a bit. If that’s true, Apple is in a good place, with a big share of mobile ad hits and spending.
After an abysmally slow start with numerous hiccups and strategy changes along the way, Cox Communications is giving up on wireless completely. On March 30, Cox is turning off the mobile service it offers through Sprint, making it the latest cable wireless venture to fall flat.
This fall we have seen a number of companies announce their experiments and tests with 100 Gbps networks, especially over long haul networks. Today Chinese telecom behemoth Huawei showed off its latest efforts, conducted in partnership with Corning, a maker of optical cables and television glass.

An optical transmission under the Atlantic at 100 Gbps – that sounds pretty cool, doesn’t it? Today, Hibernia Atlantic, a network operator and Chinese hardware maker Huawei did just that – the first 100Gbps optical transmission across the Atlantic. Infinera did the same under the Pacific.
Huawei is planning to boost its cloud offerings on the software side through acquisitions, but thanks to the uncertain politics related to the Chinese government, U.S. startups may not be in the running.
Taiwan-based smartphone maker HTC again posted record sales, revenues and profits, but the company expressed a flat forecast for the rest of this year. HTC continues to build excellent handsets but is just another Android phone maker in a growing sea of other Android phone makers.
As the faster wireless broadband connections proliferate, we are going to need devices to access those networks. The demand for these kind of connections is only going to increase as we adapt to this new world. Signs of this change are reflected in this research report.
This week tells a tale of two Android smartphones: one for $29 and one for $299. There are vast hardware differences between the Huawei Impulse 4G and Droid Bionic, but each should sell well in their targeted market. Thanks to a software update, both support Netflix.
Huawei’s new Impulse 4G for AT&T won’t attract many current smartphone owners, but at $29 with contract, feature phone users are sure to take notice of the Android smartphone. The low-priced handset offers solid functionality and will help Huawei become a household name in the U.S.
Baidu’s determination to get a piece of the action in China’s fast-growing mobile market has yielded plans for an app store and mobile platf…
A look at some of the big stories in mobile today:
Apple: Looks like there could be a media event scheduled for September 7 or 8; some are…
First Huawei and now ZTE is poised to challenge in the U.S. The company has seen 300 percent sales growth in the U.S., and it’s just getting started. It plans to leverage Android, and even Windows Phone 7, with up to 30 new handsets this year.
If you live in the U.S. and aren’t familiar with the Huawei brand, prepare yourself to get acquainted. The huge China-based networking company also makes phones and its latest, the Vision with Android 2.3, is poised to arrive soon. Mid-tier components are cradled by high-end design.
Interdigital is out to prove it’s a serious threat in the mobile patent battles that have consumed this industry. A week after Google (NSDQ:…
Looks like Nokia and Siemens are stuck with their joint venture in a telecommunications equipment company. Nokia Siemens Networks Wednesday said it had completed its review of private equity bids and decided to recommit to each other.
Ericsson has demoed a new variant of the technology called LTE Advanced, which is ten times faster than today’s commercial LTE networks. Ericsson showed-off LTE Advanced using commercial hardware in Kista, Sweden for the Swedish Post and Telecom Agency using 60 MHz of spectrum.
Nokia Siemens Networks, the telecommunications gear joint venture, is running out of options. The Wall Street Journal reported that the companies couldn’t find a private equity buyer for the gear maker and that the companies were thinking of putting more money into the entity.
Huawei, the top networking gear maker in China, continues its push into the consumer space with a new Android tablet. The dual-core MediaTab is a 7-inch slate was rumored to have a 1280 x 800 screen, just the right size for Honeycomb in a back pocket.
Ericsson, the Swedish networking equipment maker, is buying Piscataway, N.J.-based telecom software provider Telcordia for $1.15 billion, the company announced this morning. Telcordia, which can trace it roots back to the old AT&T makes software for billing and operation support.

Huawei filed suit Monday to stop Motorola Solutions from selling its wireless network business to Nokia Siemens Networks, because the sale would transfer trade secrets and competitive intelligence from the Chinese equipment firm to a competitor. Is this the start of a Chinese patent offensive?
Once an isolated world dominated by network operators and their manufacturer partners, mobile is now a space where “outsiders” are some of the most powerful players. In 2010, companies like Google, Apple, MetroPCS, Huawei and Foursquare were among those who made the most impact in mobile in 2010 — and will likely continue to lead in 2011.
The 2G wireless hardware market was dominated by Motorola, Ericsson & Nokia, collectively called M.E.N. Then came 3G and along with it Nortel and Lucent. With LTE wireless broadband on the horizon who is going to dominate the next generation hardware business? Find out.
Huawei?, the Chinese telecom equipment maker wants to be the biggest networking equipment maker in the world. And it wants to do that by not just selling cut-rate gear. Instead it wants to sign-up bright minds from around the world to help it innovate.
Huawei, the telecom gear maker, today said it has achieved speeds of 700 Mbps over DSL using a prototype shown in Hong Kong: the fastest DSL we’ve seen. Earlier this year, Alcatel-Lucent (s alu) showed off 300 Mbps over DSL that could travel for one kilometer.
UCell, a wireless service provider in Uzbekistan, has deployed an LTE network, making the central Asia nation the first to offer two different LTE networks. The new high-speed network offers theoretical peak speeds of 100 Mbps and is powered by software and equipment from ZTE.
Nokia Siemens Networks will buy Motorola’s wireless infrastructure business for $1.2 billion, which will allow NSN to increase its presence in two key wireless markets — the U.S. and Japan. It also gives the Finnish company ammunition to fight off competitors, Ericsson, Alcatel-Lucent and Huawei.
The Long Term Evolution (LTE) standard has been declared the victor over WiMAX in the war between radio technologies vying to dominate fourth-generation wireless networks. But the battlefield isn’t quiet yet, and a variation on the LTE standard known as TD-LTE is the latest frontline in the 4G network rollout.
Harbinger Capital Partner’s bold plan to build out an open 4G wireless network has more moving parts than the latest OK Go video, and would require a minimum of $6 billion to build. I’m skeptical that a competitive LTE network will come out of the plan.
Huawei today demonstrated the next generation Long Term Evolution network technology in trials that reached speed of 1.2 Gbps. That’s faster than wireline services, delivered via cellular networks. But before you dump your FiOS wireline subscription, know that the LTE Advanced technology is years away.
Huawei grew its North American sales by 63 percent to $408 million in 2009. The base number is small compared with Huawei’s global contract sales of more than $30 billion, but the Chinese equipment vendor is finding growth in a shrinking industry.

About a year after China issued 3G licenses to its three national carriers iSuppli predicts wireless data revenue in the country will rise to $19.3 billion in 2009, up from $16.3 billion in 2008. It’s a big opportunity for device makers, app companies and the carriers.
Huawei, the Chinese upstart, saw a 17.5 percent growth in revenue and a 29 percent upswing in contract sales for the year, despite a grim 2009 for many of the large telecommunications equipment providers. It appears to be winning as carriers meet growing demand for broadband.
Verizon yesterday said it tested a fiber technology that delivered 10 Gbps downstream over its FiOS network and 2.4 Gbps in upload speeds. It smoked its current speeds using Huawei gear and a forthcoming standard called XG-PON.
Ericsson said it will slash 950 jobs in addition to an existing restructuring effort aimed at securing savings of $1.4 billion by the middle of next year. Indeed, with Chinese upstarts Huawei and ZTE on the rise, the telecom sector isn’t out of the woods yet.
Huawei Technologies has brought on telecom industry veteran Matt Bross as its chief technology officer, a position that up until now he’d…
This Pike Research report focuses on the direct impact of green technologies and practices as applied to mobile telecommunications networks, with an emphasis on the opportunity to reduce carbon emissions from network operations. Within mobile networks, base stations and switching centers consume 70-80 percent of an operator’s network energy usage, so improvements here are critical. As operators concentrate on improvements in radio frequency (RF) amplifiers, new network architectures and topologies, fresh air cooling solutions and the use of sustainable energy solutions for off-grid locations, Pike Research believes that a significant opportunity exists to dramatically improve the efficiency and environmental impact of mobile networks. Our analysis indicates that there are sufficient technology and process improvements that could reduce 2013 infrastructure emissions by at least 101 million tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (MtCO2e), a decrease of 42 percent from business-as-usual (BAU) trendlines. Other key factors supporting this trend include government emissions mandates in most parts of the world, along with operators’ increasing shift away from capex-only business case analysis to a total cost of ownership (TCO) approach for purposes of calculating return on investment (ROI) for major infrastructure upgrades. This report examines some of the key opportunities and business case scenarios for achieving these reductions.
