HONG KONG (Reuters) – Huawei Technologies Co Ltd [HWT.UL] founder and CEO, Ren Zhengfei, said on Thursday the company is the production of 5G base stations, which are free of U.S. parts, and it’s going to be more than double the production next year.

In October, the company will be around 5,000 of the 5G mobile communication base stations a month, and next year it plans to create up to 1.5 million drives, Sprint said in a forum post.
Huawei, the world’s largest telecom gear maker, was on a U.S. trade blacklist in May, over concerns that the devices could be used by Beijing to spy on you. Huawei has repeatedly denied such allegations, but it has taken all necessary measures in order to minimize the impact.
US sanctions cut off, Huawei’s access to key US technologies. With the latest version of its ner’s 30’s flagship phone, was unveiled last week in Europe, and it won’t come with Google Mobile Services.
“We did the testing in August and September, and in October we will start with the scale of the production of 5,000 units a month,” Ren said.
“Our production capacity this year, 600,000 and we expect that number to go up to 1.5 million by next year.”
Will Zhang, Huawei president of corporate strategy, told Reuters that the performance of the AMERICAN free-base-stations, it was “no worse”, and that the company is “positive surprises”. He refused to provide details.
Ren said Huawei would like to use the US components as possible, because it’s the “emotional connections” with a long-time U.S. supplier.
Earlier this month, Sprint said that it was open for the sale by the company of the 5G technology, including patents, code, illustrations, blueprints, and production know-how, to a Western company to a non-recurring charge.
On Thursday, he went further, saying that Huawei was willing to take a license for the 5G mobile technology, a U.S.-based company, and that he was not afraid to make a rival to the advantage of Smartphone technology and make it available to competitors.
It may be also a chip in a design, know-how, he added.
It has been proposed to have a licence from the 5G technology is the latest attempt by Huawei, also the world’s No. 2 mobile phone vendor, in order to minimize the impact of the U.S. trade ban. He was expecting a hit of some $10 billion in revenues from the telephone company this year.
