[TechWeb] Recently, media reported that the WiFi Alliance announced the temporary withdrawal of Huawei's membership, which means that Huawei will not be able to participate in the development of wireless technology standards in the future. In addition, Bluetooth SIG, which is responsible for approving and certifying all Bluetooth devices, is likely to suspend Huawei's authorization of Bluetooth technology.
In response, Huawei issued a statement on the situation of external industrial organizations:
Huawei's products and services now and in the future will not be affected by individual organizations and their actions that violate the principles of transparency, openness, impartiality and non-discrimination. Huawei will also actively participate in relevant standards and industrial organizations on the basis of abiding by applicable laws and regulations, and build a healthy, fair, open and sustainable industrial ecology with customers and partners through unremitting contributions.
Standard is an important means for ICT information and communication industry to rely on scientific and Technological Development and productivity progress. Opening up unified standards promotes the collaboration of industrial chains and helps customers to provide products and services with higher cost performance and better quality. The development of ICT technology based on standards has greatly promoted the development of information society. These achievements can not be separated from the contributions and joint efforts of many open industrial organizations, such as standard organizations, open source communities and industrial alliances.
The fundamental reason why standard organizations, open source communities and industrial alliances can play such a huge role is that all their activities follow the principles of transparency, openness, fairness, non-discrimination, and conform to the requirements of anti-monopoly law. Only when organizations truly implement and effectively safeguard this basic principle and open it to anyone or unit willing to participate in it, can all links of the industrial chain work together to promote the sound development of industrial ecology.
Standards and industrial organizations should adhere to the principle of openness and openness, and should not restrict, suspend or terminate the right of any member who abides by the constitution of the organization to participate in open organization activities, let alone hinder the cooperation and contribution of global industry in open standards because of the political behavior of any country, organization or individual; otherwise, it will undermine the transparency and fairness of standards and industrial organizations themselves. The principle of openness, fairness and non-discrimination shakes the survival basis of an organization, affects the achievement of its objectives, and even brings the risk of suspected violation of anti-monopoly law to the organization itself and its members. It will also cause fragmentation of standards, unable to build a unified open standard for the global information and communication industry, and increase the costs and risks of all sectors of the industrial chain.
