    As a warm up for Thanksgiving festivities, Huawei pulled off its ninth Global Mobile Broadband Forum, an extraordinary two-day event at ExCeL London with a total of 2,200 attendees and participants, 57% more than last year’s event, which was also in London. Although it’s not yet at the level of the event that gathered 170,000 attendees in San Francisco last September—one-fifth of the city’s population—Huawei remains by far the only company in telecoms that has the capability, resources, and capacity to organize such a big event with a C-level league of speakers.

    Global 5G hardware revenue is expected to reach $19 billion in 2022, starting from a very low base of early adopters in the United States in the second half of 2018, followed by 5G rollouts in South Korea and massive 5G trials set for China in 2019.

    US telecommunications equipment maker CommScope will acquire Arris, in a $7.4B deal valued at $5.69 billion, with the difference comprised of CommScope’s assumption of Arris’s debt. As part of the deal, the Carlyle Group will make a $1M equity investment in CommScope for an approximate 16% stake in the new company. CommScope’s CEO Eddie Edwards has claimed the two companies’ product lines are complementary, and that the combined company will “enable end-to-end wired and wireless communications infrastructure solutions that neither company could otherwise achieve on its own.” The deal is expected to close in the first half of 2019.
