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.
