Podcast: The Heat Is on Huawei

Huawei's troubles with Western governments are more than just a setback for telco equipment sales. The vendor's problems could result in a delay and the slowed development of 5G networks around the world. (See Huawei: The Signs Were There, How the West Can Hurt Huawei and China Slams Huawei CFO's Arrest, Huawei 'Not Aware of Any Wrongdoing'.)

Huawei has shipped more than 10,000 5G base stations outside of China, so its reach and influence is formidable. Light Reading's Ray Le Maistre ponders whether those companies carrying Huawei gear will now put everything on ice and wait to see what happens next. (See Huawei Cut Out of BT's Mobile Core, Optical & Edge Plans and Huawei Has Shipped 10K 5G Basestations Outside China.)

Also on the podcast, with so many advanced technologies making their way into the communications landscape, it is becoming more apparent that case studies -- use cases of any size and scope -- are increasingly valuable as news. Light Reading's Phil Harvey insists that your industry colleagues want to know what's going on and he explains why now is the perfect time to start sharing.
