Mr., 12 Sep 2019Sounds fishy. Why only to the western and not their own. That's ... moreThey are just selling 5G assets, not their 5G business.

Since some Western countries had been bullied by the US not to buy Huawei's gears for fear of 'spying.' So this is one way for those countries to get their hands on the hardware & source code, then do it themselves ... This is essentially self-assembly.

Kangal, 13 Sep 2019People think Huawei is a standalone company like Apple or Nokia ... moreWhy the hell are you so prejudiced towards huawei. HUAWEI not my family business to defend them but I gotta say. Every American companies "helping" USA spy agencies if any data needed for whatever reasons. World need good competition for those who can't afford some big techs. What USA doing is they are killing that competition for US companies. That is industrial espionage 101. The Irony is US says huawei is spy. Dude you gotta think and read something about it before start lucturing us.

Elder McDonald, 12 Sep 2019Why on earth would they want to do something like this ? Someo... moreyeah, no sane company will do that
probably Huawei had some new breakthrough on next level technology
so why not cash in on "old" technology?

People think Huawei is a standalone company like Apple or Nokia or Sony. It's not. But that's what Huawei wants you to think, and they want your sympathy saying "we're being bullied by USA and Trump".

The fact of the matter is, many staff and managers of the company work for the CCP. There's a conflict of interest. And they have actually been active in stealing trade secrets, dodging patent licenses, and making security vulnerabilities through both ignorance and purposefully. Now, I don't want to go into a debate about this, you can find sources online particularly articles from Germany. But I will move forwards to the bigger issue to discuss.

People keep forgetting that the 5G Standard has not being finalised, it's still a Work In Progress. To allow any company exclusive rights would be premature at this stage. And it would be dangerous if conducted by another government. I wouldn't want the USA Government to install my Internet Network in my own country, so just the same, I don't want Huawei/CCP to install it either. I am happy for a third-party individual company like Ericsson, Nokia, Vodafone, NTT Docomo, etc etc to process installation and servicing of the network, of course, after inspection that it is free of vulnerabilities and backdoors.

It's much easier to protect your freedom actively, before the fox gets in the hen house. Preventing other governments especially the "super powers" such as USA, Russia, Iran, India, China, Brasil, from spying effortlessly on your country is a good stance to have. Failing to do so actually increases the risk of a third global war.

Anonymous, 12 Sep 2019There are two possibilities. -Huawei has something bigger proj... moreI can imagine Cisco or Nokia as potential buyers.

Huawei could solve all its problems by moving the headquarter from China to some other country and listing its shares publically.
Western companies have done so as well - albeit only for tax reasons.
Feel free to conclude why they aren't doing it ...
