Huawei deserves credit for tackling security claims head-on
Huawei’s global PR team certainly had a frenetic start to December, with three major setbacks coming over just a few days. First there were reports BT’s mobile unit plans to remove Huawei gear from its 4G core network, then the vendor’s CFO was held in Canada on alleged trade sanction violations and the next week all of Japan’s mobile players said they don’t plan to use the vendor’s 5G kit. Instead of waiting for the furore to subside over the upcoming holidays and ease into the new year, the Shenzhen-based company called a press conference with its rotating chairman Ken Hu (pictured) and gave media their first glimpse of its Structural Material and Mechanics Lab, which focuses on heat dissipation and anti-corrosion technologies.

(In an unusual move it also released the full transcript of the event the next day.)
