Huawei Technologies Co.’s lobbying spending spiked in the third quarter as the Chinese telecom giant hired a fundraiser for President Donald Trump with deep ties to Republican leadership to help it fight back against the administration’s blacklisting of the company from the U.S. market.

Huawei spent a company record of $1.8 million on federal lobbying in the three months ending in September, up from $30,000 in the same period last year, when it had largely shut down its lobbying presence in Washington and whittled its office down to a skeleton staff.

Of the total, Huawei spent an eye-popping $1.7 million to pay lobbyist Michael Esposito, according to federal disclosures. Esposito, whose hiring was disclosed in August, describes himself a member of Trump Victory, the joint fundraising committee that includes the president’s reelection campaign and the Republican National Committee, according to a biography on the website of his firm, Federal Advocates Inc.

Verizon on Friday announced that its 5G network is now available in three NBA arenas and is coming to seven more by the end of the 2019-2020 basketball season.

But there's a big caveat, just like there is with Verizon's 5G coverage in NFL stadiums: Verizon 5G only covers some of the seating areas.

Verizon's 5G-in-arenas announcement on Friday did not mention this significant limit. But when contacted by Ars, Verizon said the 5G network doesn't cover the whole arena for any of these NBA facilities. "Just certain seating areas" in the NBA arenas have access to 5G, a Verizon spokesperson told us.

This isn't surprising, given that Verizon's early 5G rollout relies heavily on millimeter-wave signals that don't travel far and are easily blocked by walls and other obstacles. But while NFL stadiums typically seat between 60,000 and 80,000 people, the seating capacity in NBA arenas is generally 17,000 to 21,000. Despite the big difference in size, Verizon's 5G network isn't yet capable of covering all the seating areas in any one of these facilities.

China has established two offices to develop 6G, according to the Ministry of Science and Technology on Wednesday, kicking off the competition for the next-generation cellular data service that comes after the super-fast 5G.

The ministry said on its website that one of the offices consists of government agencies responsible for the relevant policymaking.

The other is comprised of 37 experts from colleges, research academies and enterprises, who are expected to advise policymakers, it said.

An American company has been charged with fraud by selling surveillance equipment to the US government labeled as "Made In USA" which was actually made in China and imported by the company. Sometimes the Made In USA labels were applied at the Chinese factory before shipping.

LOS ANGELES -- Huawei Technologies, the world's largest telecoms equipment maker, will double staff salaries in October to thank its over 190,000 employees for enduring the Trump administration's blacklisting of the Chinese company for allegedly spying on behalf of Beijing.

"In 2019, the company and all employees were, and are, facing extraordinarily external challenges," said an internal message to staff obtained by the Nikkei Asian Review. "Upon approval by the company's president, a special dedication award will be paid."

The bonus, which is the latest step taken by Huawei to shore-up its image at home and abroad as Washington has cracked down on the company, will be distributed to all active employees of Huawei and its direct subsidiaries with a performance rating above C and no information security violations, the memo said. The bonus will be equal to each staff member's base October salary.

Huawei for the first time topped the tablet computer shipments in China in the third quarter thanks to its successful launch of variants and accelerating promotion of its tablet computer products, analysts noted on Sunday.

Huawei delivered 2.12 million tablet computers in the third quarter in China, up 24.4 percent year-on-year, accounting for 37.4 percent of the market, according to a report released by industry data provider IDC on Friday.

Apple's products maintained a relatively stable delivery with 1.92 million shipments in July-September period in China, up 12.2 percent year-on-year, accounting for 33.8 percent of the market and sliding to second place after topping the shipment list for a long period.

Huawei has been seeing strong market growth in tablet computers, Ma Jihua, a veteran industry analyst, told the Global Times on Sunday, noting that it is reasonable for Huawei to grab the largest market share in China.

As global port operators are stepping up efforts to advance automation and bring their efficiency to the next level, the Chinese industry has taken the lead in testing the application of 5G technology on terminal equipment, which will become a game changer that advances the future of smart ports.

Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industries Co (ZPMC), a world-leading supplier of port equipment system solutions, recently released a white paper on 5G smart ports jointly with Huawei, China Mobile and Vodafone.

*snip*

With 5G gearing up thanks to its low latency, large bandwidth and high reliability, the technology will provide a new communications solution for port equipment and inject new impetus into smart port reconstruction, said Zhu Lianyu, chairman of ZPMC.

ZPMC has attached great importance to 5G and began tests in 2018, Zhu told the Global Times on Thursday after an industry forum held in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates.

"We face some problems when helping to build smart ports - for instance, the speed of data and image transmission cannot meet our expectations. So we have been exploring the adoption of more advanced technology to break the technology bottleneck," Zhu said.

"The commercial use of 5G in China this year brought opportunities to ZPMC and we hope our customers around the world can understand and apply such advanced technology," Zhu said, noting the changes will not only take place in bandwidth, but in comprehensive aspects of ZMPC's major work.

Since the second half of 2018, ZPMC has been testing 5G applications on terminal equipment at Qingdao Port, East China's Shandong Province. Phase 3 of the Shanghai Yangshan Deep Water Port in Shanghai has also been tested and they will further apply the technology in Phase 4 of Nansha port, South China's Guangdong Province, in the future.

"ZPMC, which leads growth in the industry, is a forerunner in testing 5G applications to support smart ports, which sets a good example for us," a customer of ZPMC who elected to remain anonymous told the Global Times on Friday.

For six months now, the Trump Administration has banned US companies from doing business with Huawei. Nearly the entire time, there has also been a "temporary general export license" provision that allows current Huawei customers to continue to receive support for existing devices. The original order in May gave existing customers a 90-day license, and it was then extended for another 90 days after that. That leads us to November 18, and today the US has given Huawei a third 90-day support window.

Shipments of 5G mobile phones in China witnessed a sharp 401.81 percent surge month-on-month in October, according to data from the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology on Monday.

Overall domestic mobile phone shipments in China reached 35.97 million units in October, down 6.7 percent year-on-year and 0.7 percent compared with September. 5G mobile phone shipments sent out 2.49 million units, compared with 497,000 units a month earlier, data showed.

Over the past 10 months, China's mobile phone shipments delivered 323 million units with 3.28 million units for 5G phones.

Forty-nine new models were released in October, up 2.1 percent year-on-year. By the end of October, some 20 mobile phones supporting 5G networks came into the market.

The sobering article below represents only the very superficial part of the dirty and devious Chinese Government politics in terms of their influence in this country; recently I couldn't bring myself to vote "Tory" in the federal election because I don't like or trust Andrew Scheer and Co., plain and simple.

 

That said I am Zero fan of JT and especially his staggeringly naive, 'Big L' Liberal brand of "oh can't we all just pleeeeeaaaassee get along?" Realpolitik with regard to the international community, and particularly with respect to our relationship with Communist China.

 

In fact especially where China is concerned - for those who don't follow Chinese Communist escapades and schemes - this column should be a major wake up call because the Boys from Beijing aren't fooling around, and poor little limp-wristed innocent-as-a-lamb Canada (with the probable exception of our intelligence services, whose warnings are likely falling on pot-infused deaf Liberal ears), appears entirely oblivious to Chinese intentions and capabilities diplomatically, politically and militarily. For whatever reason we do so apparently revel in playing the world's favorite, most lovable 98-pound weakling:

 

https://www.msn.com/...jing/ar-BBXjSZi

 

 

One can but hope the quote attributed to Defence Minister Sajjan in this article is either a mis-quote - highly unlikely - or the minister was just playing nice for the sake of the MSM media. Because if he wasn't, and his comments truly reflect the official position of the Canadian Government viz a vis China then JT and his "rose colored eye glass view of the world" minions are even dumber and more incompetent than most of us already thought they were. 

 

(In which case if the absolute worst happens one day soon don't blame me 'cuz I voted Libertarian.....)  :1954_dancing:

"Wow" is all I can say in response: think China thinks remotely like Canada or Canadians or in any way shares our values and ideals? This article should dispel any such notion. Imagine your daughter being held by a foreign power for over a year. Imagine how you would feel.

 

Well here is what the Huawei CEO has to say about his daughter's situation:

 

.....to Huawei founder and CEO Ren Zhengfei.....

 

"She (Meng) should be proud to have been caught in this situation. In the fight between the two nations, she became a bargaining chip," Ren said in an interview with CNN Business on Tuesday. Meng, Ren said, is also suffering and will be stronger for it.

 

"The experience of hardship and suffering is good for Meng and her growth. Under the grand backdrop of the ... trade war, she is like a small ant being caught between the collision of two giant powers," Ren said.

 

https://www.cnn.com/...hter/index.html

 

Yet many small-L liberals in this country - and plenty of them in our own federal government - continue to operate under the delusional assumption that China is not our enemy. Yeah, sure. Their values are perfectly aligned with ours because, goodness knows, wouldn't every Canadian parent think a child being held in another country for over a year, with possible deportation to another and imprisonment, would be "good for her growth". Phhhhhhht.......

to be fair her being "held" by a foreign power is very easy house arrest in vancouver.  not like the two canadians jailed in china.

 

 

https://globalnews.c...u-house-arrest/

 

Huawei Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou described her house arrest in Vancouver as “restricted to a limited space” even as she spent her past six months in a six-bedroom, multi-million dollar Canadian home.

 

Meng, 47, has access to top lawyers, moves around relatively freely in Vancouver, albeit with restrictions, and her comments drew immediate comparison between her life in house arrest versus the two Canadians detained in solitary confinement in China for a similar length of time.

 

 

 

 

 

“The difference between the terms of detention of Madame Meng and the two Canadians is going to just jump off the page,” said Paul Evans, a professor at the University of British Columbia who specializes in China and Canada relations.

 

He added that the contrast could anger Canadians who compare Meng’s conditions with those of Kovrig and Spavor.

 

The two Canadians have no access to lawyers or bail, are questioned every morning, afternoon and evening, and are held in a room where the lights are not allowed to be turned off at night, according to Canadian diplomats. China has said only that the legal rights of the two men are being fully guaranteed.

well i can't imagine julian assage's dad saying something like that

The incarceration and extradition trial of Julian Assange is one of many examples of the US abusing the legal systems of other countries to target its political enemies, said John Shipton, the father of WikiLeaks’ founder.

Assange is currently held at a top security UK prison pending a hearing on extradition to the US. An American court wants him on espionage charges that may effectively result in imprisonment for life. Assange’s case is one of many in which Washington puts pressure on other nations to abuse their legal systems to persecute people that the US government doesn’t like, Assange’s father believes.

The situation with Assange is similar to what happened to other people in Washington’s crosshairs, Shipton told an audience at the University of Cologne on Saturday.

One similar case he cited is that of Huawei Chief Financial officer Meng Wanzhou, who was arrested in Canada on a request from the US. Like Assange, she is fighting an extradition request by the US, which accuses her of financial fraud in relation to violations of anti-Iranian sanctions imposed by Washington.

Hahaha "hardship" Meng is on house arrest in a 10 million dollar Vancouver home. She said in her open letter earlier that she has plenty of time to relax and read books "cover to cover." She's not facing any hardship.

Makes you wonder what sort of story the Chinese are being fed about Meng. They probably think she's incarcerated in a cold jail cell in Canada's north with a daily dose of forced hard labour.

Well that's probably what 'detained' or 'arrested' means to many in China.

The founder of Huawei says the Chinese tech giant is moving its U.S. research centre to Canada due to American sanctions on the company.

In an interview with the Globe and Mail, Ren Zhengfei said the move was necessary because Huawei would be blocked from interacting with U.S. employees.

*snip*

Ren gave no details on the Canadian expansion, but Huawei confirmed in June it had cut 600 jobs at its Silicon Valley research centre in Santa Clara, Calif., leaving about 250 employees. A Huawei spokesman said the company had no further comment.

"The research and development centre will move from the United States, and Canada will be the centre," Ren said in a video excerpt of the interview on the Globe and Mail website. "According to the U.S. ban, we couldn't communicate with, call, email or contact our own employees in the United States."
