SEIZING ON HUAWEI'S TROUBLES, Samsung swung bets big on network gear................

Samsung is pouring resources into its telecom network equipment business, aiming to capitalise on  the security fears hobbling China's Huawei, according to company officials

Those efforts include moving high-performing managers and numerous employees to the network division from its handset unit, two Samsung sources said.

Potential customers are taking notice of Samsung's efforts to reinvent itself as a top-tier supplier of  5G wireless networks and bridge a big gap with market leader Huawei and industry heavyweights Ericsson and Nokia.

French carrier Orange's chief technology officer, MariNoelle Jego-Leveissisiere, visited Japan last year and was impressed with the pace of 5G preparations using alternative equipment makers including Samsung, a company representative told Reuters.

Orange, which operates in 27 markets and counts Huawei as its top equipment supplier, will run its first French 5G tests with Samsung this year.

''Samsung is doing a big push into Europe at the moment,'' one industry source said, declining to be identified.

Underscoring the growing importance of the business, South Korean Prime Minister Lee Nak-yeon visited Samsung's network division in January. In a closed-door meeting during the visit, Samsung heir Jau Y. Lee  asked for government help with recruiting high level engineers.
Huawei is battling allegations by the United States and some other Western countries that its equipment could enable Chinese spying and should not be used in 5G networks, which will offer higher speeds and a host of new services.

Australia and New Zealand have joined the  United States and some other Western countries, especially in Europe, are considering a ban.

Huawei denies that its gear presents any security risk.

Its woes have presented Samsung with a rare opportunity.

Telecom firms would ordinarily stick with their 4G  providers for 5G  upgrades as they can use existing gear to minimise costs, but many firms may now be under political pressure to switch.

''We're bolstering our network business to seize market opportunities arising at a time when Huawei  is the subject of warnings about  security,'' said one of the Samsung sources.

The sources, who did not disclose specific figures for the employee moves, declined to be identified as they were not authorised to speak on the matter.

With respectful dedication to High Level Engineers at Huawei and Samsung, Students, Professors and Teachers of the world.
