Huawei Sues U.S. Government For Unconstitutional Sales Restrictions Imposed By Congress

Huawei announced that it has filed a complaint in a U.S. federal court that challenges the constitutionality of Section 889 of the 2019 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). Through this action, Huawei seeks a declaratory judgment that the restrictions targeting Huawei are unconstitutional, and a permanent injunction against these restrictions.

"The U.S. Congress has repeatedly failed to produce any evidence to support its restrictions on Huawei products. We are compelled to take this legal action as a proper and last resort," Guo Ping, Huawei Rotating Chairman said.

"This ban not only is unlawful, but also restricts Huawei from engaging in fair competition, ultimately harming U.S. consumers. We look forward to the court's verdict, and trust that it will benefit both Huawei and the American people."

The lawsuit was filed in a U.S. District Court in Plano, Texas. According to the complaint, Section 889 of the 2019 NDAA not only bars all U.S. Government agencies from buying Huawei equipment and services, but also bars them from contracting with or awarding grants or loans to third parties who buy Huawei equipment or services, without any executive or judicial process.

This violates the Bill of Attainder Clause and the Due Process Clause. It also violates the Separation-of-Powers principles enshrined in the U.S. Constitution, because Congress is both making the law, and attempting to adjudicate and execute it.

Song Liuping, Huawei's Chief Legal Officer, stressed, "Section 889 is based on numerous false, unproven, and untested propositions. Contrary to the statute's premise, Huawei is not owned, controlled, or influenced by the Chinese government. Moreover, Huawei has an excellent security record and program. No contrary evidence has been offered."

"At Huawei we are proud that we are the most open, transparent, and scrutinized company in the world," said John Suffolk, Huawei’s Global Cyber Security & Privacy Officer. "Huawei's approach to security by design development and deployment sets a high standards bar that few can match."

From Huawei's perspective, the NDAA restrictions prevent the company from providing more advanced 5G technologies to U.S. consumers, which will delay the commercial application of 5G, in turn, impeding efforts to improve the performance of 5G networks in the U.S.

Beyond this, network users in rural and remote regions of the U.S. will be forced to choose between government funding and high-quality, cost-effective products. This will impede the network upgrade process, thus widening the digital divide. Even worse, the restrictions on Huawei will stifle competition, leaving U.S. consumers paying higher prices for inferior products.

Estimates from industry sources show that allowing Huawei to compete would reduce the cost of wireless infrastructure by between 15% and 40%. This would save North America at least US$20 billion over the next four years.

Guo Ping added, "If this law is set aside, as it should be, Huawei can bring more advanced technologies to the United States and help it build the best 5G networks. Huawei is willing to address the U.S. Government's security concerns. Lifting the NDAA ban will give the U.S. Government the flexibility it needs to work with Huawei and solve real security issues."

Huawei Releases Industry's First 5G Power White Paper

At Mobile World Congress 2019, Huawei released industry’s 5G Power White Paper to analyze the requirements and challenges, as well as the design concepts and scenarios of 5G power. According to the white paper, 5G power needs to be simple, intelligent, and efficient.

According to the white paper, the power consumption of a single 5G site is much higher than that of a 4G site. To meet the service requirements of network capacity boost in the 5G era, a large number of end sites will be deployed, and the power consumption of the entire network will increase exponentially. Carriers face the challenges of insufficient capacity of mains supply, power distribution, and cooling system.

In the future, the number of devices will increase as more bands of higher frequency are configured. Maintenance becomes more difficult, and the labor cost keeps rising, causing higher site maintenance costs.

"In-depth researches on 5G power construction mode are an important and urgent task to address the challenges of 5G deployment on energy and improve the investment efficiency of carriers. We believe that 5G power solutions need to meet the requirements of low-cost deployment, fast construction, energy saving, smooth evolution, and simple O&M." said Fang Liangzhou, Vice President of Huawei Network Energy Product Line.

Based on a deep understanding of 5G networks, Huawei proposes in the white paper that the design of 5G power needs to be simple,intelligent, and efficient.

  • Simple: 5G power needs to be simple. That means 5G solutions need to achieve less footprint, simple installation, fast deployment, and simple O&M.
  • Intelligent: Based on the concept of Bit Manage Watt, 5G power uses AI and Cloud technologies to implement multi-level intelligent collaboration between power supply and site devices, as well as power supply and network devices. Functional power supplies develop into intelligent ones,which greatly reduces the CAPEX and OPEX of sites. At the same time, the traditional manual O&M needs to evolve into a more efficient and intelligent one.
  • Efficient: Different from the traditional single-component energy-saving design, 5G power requires end-to-end full-link energy-saving design from the aspects of power supply, conversion, power backup, power distribution, cooling, and load. In the power supply phase, various types ofnew energy access are supported to save energy and achieve the goal of 0 bit 0 watt.

The white paper points out that One Band One Blade, and One Site One Cabinet are ideal solutions for various scenarios including the overlay scenario, the site upgrade and reconstruction scenario, a micro base station or a new site. As the technology develops in the lithium battery industry, the lithium battery cost is reduced.

Lithium batteries will become a mandatory energy storage mode for 5G sites in the future. The edge computing capability based on Cloud + AI will support the optimal construction and management of 5G intelligent power.

"By analyzing energy pain points faced by carriers in network evolution, we present you 5G Power White Paper. Huawei looks forward to extending the communication and cooperation with the white paper as a base. Huawei is willing to work with carriers and industry partners to promote energy innovation and embrace the 5G era." said Fang Liangzhou.
