Yes, it’s interesting news that just broke out, the U.S. has revised the plans to transfer important technologies to restricted companies including Huawei. This may lead us to ease U.S. sanctions posted on Huawei.

So, what does it actually means for the company and for everyone, and is this a result of the fear that is now haunting the U.S.?

According to Bloomberg, The U.S. Commerce Department has decided to come up with some so-called new “standards” which would allow even restricted companies to access U.S.-made technologies. However, there’s a direct catch, that these companies must have to obey what these standards decided by the commerce department.

What are these standards? It says, that the company will have to engage in a conversation with the commerce body to get further clarification on this matter.

“US stakeholders need to be fully engaged in international standards organizations, particularly where the critical but sometimes invisible standards that they set have important national security as well as commercial implications,” Alan Estevez, the Commerce undersecretary for industry and security, said in the statement.

“Today’s rule provides much-needed clarification to US industry and other organizations that will allow for continued US leadership in these critical bodies.”

Scared?

In 2019, Huawei has been included in the Entity List, a program to ban Huawei from accessing or selling technology to the U.S. market. That has brought a big lack of accessing new components and technologies to make new products.

One such example includes the ousting of Google Mobile Services (GMS) and another includes chipsets for both mobiles and ICT business.

The entire scenario has affected greatly Huawei and its subsidiaries. The revenue decline so does its market share in different categories of products.

Still, the company has decided to keep up and make new products with what it has in hand. Such an example could be seen in the sharing of patent technologies to generate extra revenue and make good use of existing stocks.

Meanwhile, Huawei continues to dig deep into new technologies and this could be clearly seen in advancements such as Satellite Calling, yes, it’s a new kind of advancement that has brought this Chinese company to fight head to head with Apple. Not even Samsung could do that but Huawei did.

On the other hand, Huawei keeps on looking for new ways to get chipsets or investing in companies that could advance in chipset precision technologies.

Yes! The U.S. doesn’t want to lose its lead over the technological world and for that, the best way is to open access to required technologies for all of the restricted firms. Another aspect is, that these firms bring a large share of income and revenue, as their absence causes big trouble for their business partner in the U.S, and the ease of Huawei sanctions might help big on this matter.

Which technologies?

Currently, the commerce department has not announced the list of technologies that will be shared with Huawei but we’ll keep you posted with any further remarks on this matter.

Huawei 5g boats

Recently, China Unicom Guangdong and the 5G Huawei “Digital Fishing Boat” project won the 2023 GSMA “5G Productivity Challenge Award” by installing 5G to fishing boats for various use cases.

This achievement includes efforts of the two companies to jointly create new 5G technologies, build a 5G operation ecosystem, and promote industrial digitalization through the “5G Fast City” while ensuring the growth of 5G applications.

David Pringle, a GSMA judge and a senior analyst at Pringle Media, pointed out: “On the more than 450 kilometers of coastline in Yangjiang City, Guangdong Province, 5G is completely changing the lives of fishermen, allowing them to keep abreast of weather conditions, sell fish and other products when they go fishing. Stay connected with your family. Guangdong Unicom’s digital fishing boat system has provided services for more than 4,000 fishing boats, and it can also assist the local fishery administration to mitigate the impact of typhoons and combat illegal fishing operations.”

Using 5G, cloud computing, the Internet of Things, and Beidou positioning technologies, it can realize all-weather dynamic monitoring of fishing boats’ offshore operations. Through the 5G MetaAAU ultra-large-scale antenna array, the system gives full play to the advantages of the large bandwidth of the 3.5G frequency band, and can still maintain the access capability of 60Mbps downlink and 2Mbps uplink in the 61km far sea range.

On the “digital fishing boat”, fishermen can not only watch the news, but also keep abreast of weather warnings and other information, and make high-definition video calls with their families. In the event of an emergency on the fishing boat, fishermen can call for help with one click through the app and get assistance in time. Fishermen can also use the app to link to major e-commerce platforms and sell seafood products across the country through e-commerce channels.

Guangdong Unicom plans to further promote the digital fishing boat system and provide related services for 40,000 to 50,000 fishing boats in Guangdong Province. At the same time, Guangdong Unicom and Huawei also plan to carry out innovative cooperation with industrial partners in the fields of offshore wind power, offshore pastures, and island tourism through the “5G Fast City”.
