This is not the first time that Huawei is using ASICs. In fact it had used ASICs for their backplane ( and perhaps other hw) in their teleocm fibreoptic equipment - way back in early 2000s. At that time, its design team (later spun out as HiSilicon) implemented ASICs with the help of various ASIC vendors - Meenu

Maybe it's to hide their spyware. An FPGA bitstream can be reverse engineered, but it's harder to reverse engineer an ASIC.

It is a trend to use ASIC to replace FPGA, especially Huawei's subsidiary HiSilicon is also making a lot money from their chips in telecom market.

A Huawei contact told me the company--like its rival Cisco--has been using ASICs for some time, many designed, I suspect, by its giant HiSilicon division. Apparently Huawei or some big company is now converting many of the Altera FPGAs it uses into ASICs. That usually indicates the systems are moving from relatively small to large volumes.

Huawei: you wonder what is going on in their move against the grain of using more FPGAs than ASICs in the industry at large. More control, more security, hm...

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
