Huawei and China’s Telecoms Industry with David Wolf

Updated to include link for download.  Downloading now works.

Recorded on May 21, 2011

For this edition of Artman Talks, we’re speaking with David Wolf about his new book Making the Connection: The Peaceful Rise of China’s Telecommunications Giants.

In our discussion, we focus on the importance of China’s telecom history, the role of client-centered innovation, as well as Huawei and their current image problem.

We also get to hear David go beyond the book to look at the future of Huawei’s development and some of the things they (and other Chinese telecoms manufacturers) can do to continue their aggressive international expansion.

Most surprising fact for me:  For both Huawei and ZTE, due to local preconceptions of poor domestic quality, only a minority of their business comes from China.

We get a better internet connection (kind of) and stay a little bit more on focused when it comes to topics.

We talk about some of the biggest news (no not Euro nonsense) to hit this side of the world: the death of Kim Jong-il. A crazy guy, who apparently wanted to be a movie director, left behind a son only recently declared heir to rule the country. What’s next for North Korea and China? We’re not sure, but we do discuss some of the possibilities.
