Seizing on Huawei's troubles, Samsung bets big on network gear

Today 08:04 GMT

Samsung Electronics is pouring resources into its telecom network equipment business, aiming to capitalize on the security fears hobbling China’s Huawei, according to company officials and other industry executives.

Those efforts include moving high-performing managers and numerous employees to the network division from its handset unit, two Samsung sources said. Potential customers are taking notice of Samsung’s efforts to reinvent itself as a top-tier supplier for 5G wireless networks and bridge a big gap with market leader Huawei and industry heavyweights Ericsson and Nokia.

Huawei ban: Chinese state media claims tourists avoiding New Zealand

Friday 21:50 GMT

New Zealand has become the latest target of a propaganda campaign in China’s state-run media, with the English language Global Times newspaper claiming that tourists are cancelling their holidays in retaliation for the country banning Huawei from being involved in the 5G rollout.

The Huawei ban and the Pacific “reset” – New Zealand’s strengthening of ties in the Pacific region to counter growing Chinese influence – have made the New Zealand–China relationship “much bumpier” than under the previous National government, Young says.

Huawei pitches rugby ad at New Zealanders

Thursday 12:42 GMT

Huawei is playing on New Zealanders' love of sport with an advert it hopes will soften the rugby-mad nation's stance towards using the Chinese giant's technology.

"New Zealanders wouldn't accept second or third best on the rugby field, and they shouldn't have to put up with it when it comes to 5G," Huawei said. The advertisement comes at a time when relations between the small Commonwealth country and its largest trading partner and Asia's dominant economy are already under strain.
