On September 10, 2019, in an interview with British media, Huawei proposed to sell Huawei's 5g technology to Western companies in order to create a competitor that can compete with Huawei on 5g. According to Ren Zhengfei, buyers can permanently own and use Huawei's current 5g patents, licenses, codes, technical blueprints and production know-how as long as they pay a one-time fee.
However, due to various reasons, no US company accepted the 5g transfer proposal, and then the news went to sea.
Recently,Huawei U.S. officials repeated the matter when they forwarded a media report, mainly on the U.S.'s limited choice to address the Huawei5G challenge, saying
In other words,Huawei officials are hinting that the US side can still discuss 5g licensing with itself.
As for why 5g technology should be authorized actively, Hu houkun, vice chairman of Huawei, said that 5g is developing very fast and there are many disputes around Huawei, but the idea of 5g technology transfer is very easy to understand. On the one hand, if 5g technology transfer is realized, more competition can be generated in 5g supply chain, which has greater benefits for users and industrial development Push. on the other hand,If a company has a complete grasp of Huawei's 5g technology, it can carry out more development on it, which is also helpful to eliminate external doubts about Huawei。
