In Huawei’s early days, we were a hardware company, and the software was created to manage and control the hardware. Today, in 2019, the hardware is becoming commoditized, and the intelligence is embedded in the software. Huawei’s activities range from the chip sets, through to the device (e.g., smartphone, laptop, wearable, or connectivity device installed in a car), through to the base station, to the core transmission network. Huawei’s range of activity is broader than any of our competitors. Ericsson and Nokia, for example, are in the network space, not so much in the device space. Apple is in the device space, not so much in the network space.

The fact that Huawei is engaged in all four areas on this value chain explains much of their path to success. The nature of the telecoms industry is one that heavily favors scale, and dominance in one area allows firms like Huawei to invest or subsidize other areas of business, which can create a snowball effect.

Side note: A former postal worker from Ireland who dropped out of school at 15 years old and now finds himself at the center of a global technological and political conflict, Kelly himself is perhaps as interesting as the company he represents. The Beijing Bookworm’s Peter Goff wrote a profile on him in The Irish Times that is very worth reading.
