Huawei announces small increase in new 5G customer base from last month

Third Canadian Detained in China Amid Row Over Huawei CFO Arrest- Reports

Days after Meng's arrest, the private company that dominates United Kingdom telecommunications, BT Group, announced it was removing Huawei equipment from its existing mobile networks, and would not use Huawei technology in future mobile systems.

The company took swipes at the USA and its allies Tuesday during its first press event since CFO Meng Wanzhou was detained in Canada on allegations she defrauded banks to violate Iranian sanctions.

But the third Canadian detained doesn't seem to fit the pattern of the two previous ones, with no national security charges listed, Trudeau said. Other countries, following Japan, Australia, and New Zealand; such as France, are also considering putting a ban on using Huawei's network infrastructure.

Hu said Meng's arrest has had no impact on the travel of the company's senior executives.

Added Hu: "When it comes to security, we need to let the facts speak for themselves, Huawei's record on security is clean", according to Mobile World Live.

Huawei's rotating chairman Ken Hu told reporters the company has not received any request from the Chinese government for access to information.

He said customers continue to trust the company despite what he sees as efforts to fan fears against the firm.

The Chinese government and state-run media have vilified the Canadian decision to arrest Meng, and ridiculed the rule-of-law argument.

More so, the Shenzhen-based tech company is set to bring its 5G technology to India, a market with more than 1.3 billion population. He said the US has been "very patient" waiting to see if China would change its approach, but so far it hasn't.

Trump asked cabinet to look for border wall funding
But the president doesn't have the votes from the Republican-controlled Congress to support funding for the wall at that level. This is significant, especially in light of Trump's previous declaration that he would be "proud" to let a shutdown happen.

Meng, the 46-year-old daughter of Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei, has said in a sworn affidavit that she is innocent and will contest the allegations against her at trial if she is surrendered to the US. That strategy is now taking hold in Europe, where the Chinese technology giant is bleeding allies. Those moves suggest that - even without detailed public proof - there is solid evidence supporting the intelligence community's worries.

The world's largest suppliers of telecommunications equipment also provided an upbeat outlook for 2018, projecting to end the year with more than $100 billion in revenue, up from $92 billion it archived last year.

Yet the outlook may be dimming for Huawei there. U.S. officials have said the company is too close to the Chinese state.

Huawei has repeatedly said Beijing has no influence over it. Therefore, as part of the overall IPD 2.0 transformation, we included software engineering capabilities as a very important component.

A second source said Canada was concerned that the detainees were in the hands of the powerful security authorities.

"We know there're concerns so we're willing to take the extra steps needed or go the extra mile versus our peers", Hu said.

The United States is pressuring partners and allies to ban Huawei products, and the European Union is also said to be investigating whether the Chinese equipment indeed poses a security threat.
