After cutting supplying to Huawei, now the world top tech firms wants to stop engaging in any conversation about technology or technical stuff with the Chinese telecom Giant, which is not professional behavior.
Chipmakers Intel and Qualcomm, mobile research firm InterDigital Wireless Inc and South Korean carrier LG Uplus have restricted employees from informal conversations with Huawei, the world’s largest telecommunications equipment maker, reported Reuters.
This kind of discussion is a routine part of international meetings where engineers gather to set technical standards for communication technologies, including the fifth gen mobile networks.
“Companies prohibiting their employees contacting Huawei was excessive because the restrictions don’t preclude communication, only the transfer of technology.” said an export control lawyer.
Intel, Qualcomm denied commenting about on this matter, while InterDigital told that it has provided guidance to engineers in compliance of the US regulations, that is obviously a pressure built by the government on country’s technological firms.
Last month, the US added Huawei and its affiliate in a business blacklist, after this, firms stopped supplying hardware component and software services to Huawei.
Moreover, the US president Donald Trump has urged allies countries to stop Huawei from building 5G networks in their soils.
Following this, China has also announced that it’s preparing its own “Unreliable” firms list businesses and individuals that are out of the interests of the domestic market, this list could include major US firms.
Will focus on building HarmonyOS and Euler operating system: Huawei
On the sideline of the Huawei Connect 2021 conference, Huawei’s Rotating Chairman – Eric Xu took an interview with media personnel. The current Huawei head announced that the company will focus on building two of its operating system HarmonyOS and EulerOS.
HarmonyOS and Euler, both will be open source and the company will focus on building these two operating systems in the future. In terms of working terminology, HarmonyOS is used for smart devices, IoT, industrial use cases. On the other hand, Euler is designed for servers, edge computing, cloud, and more.
Xu also said that Euler is not new and was released in 2019. The opnEuler operating system was initially served with the Kunpeng platform and moving to become the futuristic infrastructure of the operating system.
EulerOS provides enhanced security, compatibility, and easy-to-use features along with high Reliability. It meets the increasing requirements of Linux OS in enterprise applications and provides a compelling choice of open IT platform for users.
Launched at Huawei Developer Conference 2019, HarmonyOS comes with distributed technology and is designed to work across different devices for a seamless cross-device user experience. Initially, the operating system only supported smart TVs.
At HDC 2020, the Chinese tech maker introduced the second version of this OS – HarmonyOS 2.0. This time, Huawei added new platform support including smartphones, tablets, smart wearables, IoT devices, In-car systems, home consumer devices, and more.
However, the most interesting part of the HarmonyOS release comes in the form of smartphones adaptation. The smartphone version of this Huawei operating system debut on June 2, 2021.
Following the launch, the Chinese company began seeding it on the device. The roadmap is pretty huge consisting of over 100 models. As of September 23, 2021, Huawei has already installed HarmonyOS in 120 million smartphones.
HarmonyOS and EulerOS are currently in their early phase but the progress made by these operating systems comes in the form of major successes in a short amount of time. Therefore, bringing them upwards and developing their complete ecosystem will surely bring a boost to Huawei’s business.
