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...

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
