Amid the US-China trade war, Huawei has disclosed that the company is willing to share its know-how of existing 5G technology for a fee with a western firm.
Huawei has repeatedly denied accusations of spying for the Chinese government. “(Huawei is) open to sharing our 5G technologies and techniques with US companies, so that they can build up their own 5G industry,” reports quoted Ren as saying. “This would create a balanced situation between China, the US and Europe.”
He noted that Huawei would be looking for a buyer based outside Asia, somewhere in the West.
In one report, Ren said for a one-off payment a buyer would be given access to the company’s portfolio of huge 5G patents, licences, code, technical blueprints as well as production expertise.
