Light Reading's 22 Most Popular Huawei Stories in 2018

We're going to have seatbelts installed in the office chairs for reporters who cover Huawei.

I worry that the hairpin turns and sharp reversals in the company's fortunes are finally going to loosen our scribes' grip on their desks, where they've been white-knuckling it since 2018 began.

From massive revenues, profits and 5G equipment shipments to a nearly worldwide conspiracy to put the company in its place, the stories about Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd in Light Reading during this calendar year have been all over the place -- seemingly growing more dramatic and ominous by the day.

Have a look at this list of Light Reading's most popular Huawei stories, and you'll see what I mean. Effusive praise, dire warnings, big contracts and massive upheaval -- it's all par for the course when the main subject is Huawei.
