Four Basic Software Projects Power Innovation of Open Source Communities

While hardware provides the foundation of computing power, basic software helps unleash the potential, and application software creates tangible value for end users. Innovation will gain speeds when a virtuous cycle is formed among hardware vendors, basic software vendors, application software vendors, system developers, software developers, and users.

Open source software is an important part of Huawei’s computing ecosystem strategy. Huawei values open hardware, open source software, and partner enablement. By leading open source initiatives, contributing, and enabling business partners, Huawei supports the technical software ecosystem with continuous innovation.

In terms of community contributions, Huawei ranks No. 2 globally in the latest Linux Kernel 5.8 release. Huawei leads four open source projects: openEuler, openGauss, openLooKeng, and MindSpore, and has completed continuous integration with more than 40 mainstream communities. By contributing to upstream communities for mainstream scenarios, Huawei enables 80% of

China is reportedly preparing to launch an antitrust investigation into Google — at Huawei’s request.

The probe, which could be confirmed as soon as October, was suggested by the Chinese tech company in 2019, two people with knowledge of the matter told Reuters.

The probe would examine whether Google has hindered competition through the dominance of its Android mobile system, the people said. It has been submitted to Beijing for review by China’s top market regulator, the sources said.

Nokia is set to become a major beneficiary of Huawei being blocked from the UK’s 5G networks.

The Finnish telecoms firm has struck a deal to become the largest equipment provider to BT.

The deal will also see Nokia replace Huawei in BT’s 2G and 4G networks.

EE’s network already uses Nokia to provide its 3G service.

The UK government announced in July that all the UK’s mobile providers were being banned from buying new Huawei 5G equipment after 31 December, and must also remove all the Chinese firm’s 5G kit from their networks by 2027.

The decision, which was taken on national security grounds, effectively ended a strong relationship between BT and Huawei that dated back to 2005.
