Trump order bans U.S. firms from dealing with Huawei

Trump order bans U.S. firms from dealing with Huawei

Huawei placed on US "Entity List", company seen as a threat to national security.

Ross noted in an interview yesterday with Fox Business Network that even many U.S. rural telecommunications companies use the cheaper Huawei technology in their 4G systems.

The response came after president Trump stepped up measures against Huawei on Wednesday, in which he effectively barred the telecom from the USA market and added it to a blacklist restricting United States sales to the firm.

The restrictions "will not make the US more secure or stronger", the company said.

For that reason, Washington has pushed its closest allies to reject Huawei technology, a significant challenge given the few alternatives for 5G.

The new networks are critical to reaching data transmission speeds needed to support future "internet of things" applications, such as driverless cars.

While U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross said the actions were not related to the ongoing trade dispute, Purdy seems to disagree. USA companies looking to sell to companies on the Entity List are required to get approval by the US government.

With all the news-related activity around Huawei, some of which is even actual news, we've made a decision to stop chronicling each minute twist and turn around the Chinese telco kitmaker and its security woes as they happen, and instead slice and dice them for your delight and delectation.

Many in Europe have resisted a fierce USA diplomatic campaign to institute a wholesale ban on the company's equipment in their 5G wireless networks. But Germany and France have not followed suit.

It was claimed yesterday that Dutch intelligence services were investigating whether Huawei had helped create a cyber "back door" for Chinese spies.

"We don't control the customer network", Andy Purdy, Huawei's chief security officer, said in an interview with CNET.

"U.S. technology will not be used in a way that's adverse", he told FOX Business' Maria Bartiromo on Thursday. More information about what exactly the executive order entails is available via the White House's announcement.

It's also telling that Trump's order came after trade talks with China failed.

The United States will certainly consider issuing new regulations that aim to limit the amount of sensitive USA technology that makes its way to China and helps Chinese companies - indeed, it's still rolling out new export control rules on emerging technologies - but Washington can not unravel the dense network of the global tech sector on its own.

The entity listing affects major firms like chipmakers Qualcomm and Intel, which are Huawei suppliers. Huawei also makes Windows laptops, with Microsoft providing the operating system.

"The China government doesn't speak for us and we don't speak through the Chinese government".

But leading analysts downgraded their assessments for several US microchip companies on Thursday.

But last month a leak from the United Kingdom government suggested that the country was going to allow the Chinese networking company to provide at least some 5G infrastructure, on the basis that the risk of using Huawei kit can be managed.

USA officials say Huawei will give information it collects to the Chinese government. He was referring to the thousands of antenna stationsthat will process 5G bandwidth.

President Trump has ramped up the pressure by raising tariffs on a list of $200 billion worth of Chinese imports from 10 percent to 25 percent.

There will be less impact on Huawei's mobile handset business.

Huawei, the world's largest telecommunications equipment maker, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Two other Huawei affiliates were charged this year with stealing tech secrets from telecom group T-Mobile in a separate case.

Meanwhile, memory chips used in Huawei smartphones that are produced by American firms like Micron could be substituted out for South Korean products.
