Recently, Huawei released the latest mobile phone Mate 60 Pro, which has attracted widespread attention at home and abroad. For a time, all kinds of news about Huawei were overwhelming and dizzying.
Some people have vowed that Huawei Satellite Communications is suspected of counterfeiting and deceiving consumers.
There are also media reports that the United States directly invaded Huawei's headquarters, and all this made senior American official Raimondo feel upset.
What the hell is going on here? Let's find out.
Satellite communication fraud?
Not long ago, a message related to Huawei's satellite call function flooded the network. Looking at the title alone, it is really exciting, no wonder some people shouted: Huawei has overturned!
At the end of August, Huawei's new mobile phone was unveiled and met with consumers. Among the many features of this new machine, satellite communication is particularly eye-catching. With the help of satellites, Huawei's communication quality will make a qualitative leap.
However, not long after the release of the new machine, some netizens jumped out to "fight counterfeiting."
Netizens said that they asked the official number of China Satcom on the website, but China Satcom replied clearly, saying that the company did not have any cooperation with Huawei.
After the screenshot appeared, the whole network was full of discussion, and many people condemned Huawei for fakes. But in reality, this is a complete oolong incident.
Because Huawei's new machine partner is the Tiantong-1 satellite, the satellite system is not managed by China Satcom, but is exclusively operated by China Telecom.
The Tiantong-1 satellite is a satellite mobile communication system independently developed by the mainland, and the overall technical level has reached the "international advanced" level, which is enough to match Huawei's scientific and technological strength.
To take the simplest example, in the event of a natural disaster, this satellite can become a protector of life.
Extreme natural disasters often cause base stations to collapse, and after the base station collapses, all ground communications will be disrupted. Both phones and mobile phones will fall into strike. At this point, only satellite phones can come in handy. Satellites roam the vastness of space, minimizing the impact of natural disasters and embodying the most advanced modern communication technology.
The development process of Tiantong-1 can be traced back to 2008.
After the Wenchuan earthquake in 2008, all communication networks on the ground were paralyzed, seriously affecting the progress of rescue. Since then, China has made a bitter determination to build its own satellite phone to avoid the recurrence of the tragedy.
As a result, the Fifth Academy of Aerospace Science and Technology Group took up the burden, accelerated the pace of research and development, and finally successfully launched the Tiantong-1 satellite in August 2016. However, there is still a certain distance between scientific research and commercial use, and satellite phones cannot be separated from Huawei's help if they want to enter thousands of households. From another point of view, Huawei wants to achieve technological breakthroughs, and it is inseparable from Tiantong-1.
The two complement each other and achieve each other, which creates the communication miracle of the Mate 60 Pro.
In the field of satellite communications, Huawei's new machine has mainly achieved breakthroughs in two aspects.
First, Huawei has reduced the size of satellite phones.
Once upon a time, satellite phones were bulky and required an external antenna. For ordinary people, this is more like a slightly bulky professional instrument. But now, Huawei has embedded the satellite voice call function into a small mobile phone, breaking the barrier of use, so that satellite phones are no longer far away, but within reach.
Second, Huawei has enhanced the communication capabilities of satellite phones.
Generally speaking, direct satellite communication is often "short messages" that can only transmit relatively concise content. However, Huawei has improved its antenna technology to allow satellite communications to carry more information. At the same time, Huawei has also found ways to reduce the energy consumption generated in communications, so that professionals in the satellite field can shine.
It can be seen that Huawei not only did not fake, but also handed over an extremely beautiful answer sheet, which is enough to amaze everyone.
Now that the first mystery has been solved, we turn our attention to the second question: what did the United States do to Huawei, and did it really invade Huawei's headquarters?
Invasion of Huawei
The brighter Huawei performs, the more the United States hates it.
As we all know, in order to hinder Huawei's development, the United States is full of tricks, not only not allowing its own chip companies to do business with Huawei, but also interfering in the normal trade between other countries and Huawei. The United States thinks it has woven an impermeable net, trapping Huawei in it and never turning over.
But the United States never expected that Huawei would return strongly with the Kirin 9000S, and the sales of new machines were booming, completely smashing the conspiracy of the United States. Huawei's breakthrough of the blockade has allowed the world to see the strong strength of Chinese chips, and it has made the United States restless.
Fighting strength can not fight Huawei, the United States has to play a trick. The United States is hidden, but it has not escaped China's tracking. As the investigation deepened, the truth gradually surfaced.
And all this is related to a mysterious organization called TAO.
Recently, a strange thing happened at Northwestern Polytechnical University. For some reason, the school's internal network was inexplicably attacked. In desperation, Northwestern Polytechnical University could only ask for help from professional departments. The professional department quickly investigated, and through the clues, found that this was all a ghost of the United States.
It turns out that there is a group called TAO in the US intelligence security system, which relies on the Internet all year round to lurk around the world to carry out specific intrusion missions. To put it bluntly, AO's main job is to hack into important systems, implant spyware, and obtain data.
As the investigation deepened, Chinese professional and technical personnel found that TAO not only attacked Chinese universities, but also targeted Chinese technology companies early, and Huawei was one of them!
What is even more surprising is that the United States is so frenzied that it asked TAO to directly hack into Huawei's headquarters and install software in the headquarters servers to carry out monitoring. And this despicable and shameless act can be traced back to 2009.
At that time, the United States realized the potential of Huawei, planned the layout early, and wanted to grasp Huawei's first-hand dynamics. Protecting national security is an eternal excuse for the United States, Huawei is a pure Chinese enterprise, and it is incompatible with the United States, but the United States wants to concoct various "security reports" to smear Huawei and suppress China.
The United States claims that Huawei's technology development activities pose a threat to U.S. national security. Therefore, the United States invaded Huawei's background just to protect itself. This set of rhetoric can be called a model of turning black and white upside down.
Although the US officials do not recognize it and always avoid the important and deny it in every way, it is certain that Huawei has always been the focus of attention of US intelligence agencies. For years, the United States has never given up monitoring Huawei and obtaining core intelligence. It's just that Huawei has long been alert and made corresponding deployments, which did not allow the United States to succeed.
And these were all seen by Raimondo of the US Department of Commerce, which was enough to upset her.
What is Raimondo's relationship with Huawei, and why is she worried?
Raimondo has had a hard time in recent days.
On the issue of China, Raimondo is a down-to-earth hawk with a tough style, and has always advocated all-out efforts to suppress China without giving China the slightest respite. Raimondo is in charge of the Ministry of Commerce, has a certain weight of words, can influence Sino-US trade, and also has a say in the chip issue, and is an important figure in American politics that cannot be ignored.
Raimondo has long been the number one supporter of sanctions against Huawei. In other words, she is Huawei's mortal rival and cannot see Huawei's development. Raimondo has repeatedly stressed that exports must be restricted, technology blocked, and Huawei's high-end chip path blocked. Only then will the United States be safe.
Raimondo has always been confident about the level of the U.S. blockade. But Huawei used facts to make Raimondo's rhetoric a joke. In this case, Raimondo was naturally extremely distressed.
However, Raimondo is still unwilling to admit defeat, let alone give up targeting Huawei. After the release of Huawei's new machine, Raimondo did a total of three things, and behind these three things, it just reflected Raimondo's panic.
First of all, Raimondo tried to deny the performance of the Kirin 9000S and belittle Huawei's new machine.
The official data of the Kirin 9000S has not yet been released, and Raimondo gave American politicians a "preventive shot" at the hearing. She said sourly that there is no evidence that Huawei has the ability to mass-produce 7nm chips.
But in fact, through many evaluations, we can already conclude that the Kirin 9000S is undoubtedly a high-end chip. Some people estimate that the performance of the Kirin 9000S can even be compared to the Snapdragon 888. The Snapdragon 888 is the star product of Qualcomm and is a 5nm-level chip. It can be seen that the Kirin 9000S has strong performance, which is already an indisputable fact.
Raimondo couldn't possibly be ignorant of this, but she could only pretend to be confused and try her best to calm people's hearts. But soon, as long as Huawei publishes the specific information of the Kirin 9000S, Raimondo's lies will be self-defeating.
In addition, Raimondo made a fuss about "mass production", believing that China does not have the strength to mass-produce high-end chips. But with the advent of domestic lithography machines, China's chip manufacturing capacity is bound to make a qualitative leap, and Raimondo's absurd remarks will once again become the laughing stock of the world.
Secondly, Raimondo said that he did not believe, but acted honestly, and launched an official investigation in the first place.
Raimondo declared that it is necessary to identify chip companies that trade with Huawei and find the root cause of the failure of the US blockade policy. When the "culprits" are found, the US government will severely punish these "traitors".
Finally, Raimondo also "cursed" Huawei.
Raimondo claims that she can predict Huawei's future fate. Although the Kirin 9000S is now beautiful, Huawei's good days have come to an end. In the future, Huawei will definitely have supply problems. By that time, Huawei's production chain may collapse completely, and its glory will no longer be gone.
Raimondo simply could not come up with strong factual arguments to prove her prediction, and she could only release harsh words to try to intimidate Huawei. And this kind of behavior is comparable to jumping beam clowns, which makes people cry and laugh.
Whether it is rumors and slander, or surveillance threats, this is a manifestation of the United States' defenses.
And the United States' defense breaking just proves Huawei's success. The Kirin 9000S will become a new beginning, and I believe that Huawei will make more breakthroughs in the near future.
