Huawei not welcome in Australia!

Again a setback for China’s #1 telecommunication service provider and gear
manufacturer. Australia has launched a telecom project to attach 93% of
the australian population to boradband internet via cable, staelltie and DSL.
Huawei however is not wanted as premier Julia Gillard states hacking…

attacks from China as a possibe security issue for the stability of the new to-establish network project valued AUS$36 billion. Huawei already tried to take 3Com over in the USA in 2008 but the deal also has bounced as the USA saw a severy national security issue in the deal. Julia Gillard has been following an independent research of ASIO (Australian Security Intelligence Organization) and considers her decision well-thought-over.

So while China blocks their people very restrictively from accessing the whole web freely, they also have to face the counter-productive effects of such behaviour: They’re not wanted if it comes to big deals where also national security is an issue.

Interesting though that O2 Germany seems to completely rely on Huawei. So is their complete backend network based on Huawei technology. Also the German Research network (DFN) uses 10GBit DWDN-technology (Dense Wavelength Division Multiplex) for their X-WiN network from Huawei.

So for once it seems as if China has been put to it’s limits when it comes to security-related projects and it also seems that despite of China’s generousity, they’re not always getting what they want! Maybe it’s time for China to rethink their strategy of locking people out from the rest of the world when it comes to free speech and also when it comes to security-related stuff!

However the basic question is now who is going to get the biggest pie in that project. So is Ericcson as the world leader in such technologies dealt as the premier option. Also Cisco could probably come up with the necessary network structures as Cisco is a global longterm player when it comes to high-performance network across WAN structures.

The fact that something has to be done in Australia in the broadband network part is that Australia currently ranks 21st of 34 ranks on the OECD list for broadband access coverage. That’s average but far from good. Interesting fact: According to the OECD statistics from 2008, Switzerland had already in 2004 a total of 75% coverage and ranks #6 – I call that very good! 8 years later, Switzerland might already have a much better coverage as the cablecom has enclosed more and more areas and also local broadband dealers have connected to cablecom’s highspeed network which allows most users to use 100MBit/s bandwidth. The king is still the USA with a total 96% coverage. However I ask myself why would US citizens want to use highspeed internet as almost everything related with downloads is being incriminated by the MPAA or RIAA…
