China Mobile and Huawei have jointly taken 5G connectivity to literally a new height by bringing the network to the summit of Mount Everest. The companies recently finished building the world’s highest 5G base station at an altitude of 6,500 meters. Together with the launch of the Gigabit optical fibre network at the attitude of 6,500 meters, Huawei says that it will now enable China Mobile to run its dual gigabit network on Mount Everest. Huawei has offered its end-to-end solutions in the construction of China Mobile’s Everest dual gigabit network, where base stations were built in Mount Everest Base Camp at the altitude of 5,300 meters, the Transition Camp at 5,800 meters, and the Forward Camp at 6,500 meters.

Huawei claims that its 5G … [Read more...] about China Mobile and Huawei establish world’s highest 5G site on Mount Everest
I think it's a pretty safe bet, after spending the money and the time that China has in cultivating domestic champions, it's not about to just lay down. So if they need to embrace Open RAN technology in order to remain competitive, I think it's fair to say they'll probably do that. But again, I don't want to ignore the very real, non-domestic side of this equation, which is that, they may not have to, because they'll still be able to offer extremely attractive packages to people — heavy subsidized rates, commercial dumping, deferred payment terms, and things that will make their classic stack extremely attractive. We have to be cognizant that simply opening interfaces is not a magic bullet, in terms of scale, and being able to provide a check on Chinese dominance. I think too often in the O-RAN discussion, we are ignoring that very real threat: that there needs to be far more tools than just the R&D support and the interface specing [developing specifications]." … [Read more...] about Could ‘Open’ systems negate Huawei’s influence on 5G?
The A51 will be going on sale in the U.S. and other global markets in a few months, and while there aren't many devices at the $350 price point, there are a few options like the Pixel 3a.

The restoration of partial mobile phone manufacturing has been marred by challenges and may be discontinued if supply chain companies do not get approvals from authorities, according to a status report submitted by industry body ICEA to the government. The India Cellular and Electronics Association (ICEA), which represents companies like Apple, Vivo, Oppo, Huawei, Foxconn, Wistron and Flex, also flagged the issue of labour unavailability. Mobile phone production in the country is estimated to have crossed Rs 2 lakh crore in annual production value, with factories in Uttar Pradesh contributing around 60 per cent of the total. Besides, the mobile phone makers are facing around 400 per cent rise in international freight tariff, which is expected to increase the cost of production, according to the ICEA status report submitted to the Ministry of Electronics and IT on May 11. While almost all mobile phones sold in India are made in the country, the manufacturers are required to import … [Read more...] about Mobile phone manufacturing may be discontinued due to restrictions on supply chain companies: ICEA
