There has been a lot of interesting talks going about UK restrictions on Huawei 5G network equipment. And a former UK minister has revealed that the Huawei 5G network equipment and services ban is a result of pressure from the US government.
According to Euractiv, Vince Cable, former Business and industry minister for the UK said that the decision against Huawei has nothing to do with national security. While it has been done due to the American pressure. Although, the UK government has not pushed to hardlines ever since but it’s a huge revealing done by any of the previous government officials.
Huawei runs as the top telecom equipment maker in the global market. However, the Chinese tech maker has achieved this position based on the years of research and development of the respective technologies. However, some of the global markets always remained unfriendly this telecom giant including the US and later on, the UK.
The U.S. has been alleging Huawei for spying on the government agencies and Telecom equipment users and stealing their data on behalf of the Chinese government. However, Huawei has continuously denied these allegations.
In 2019, the U.S. government took a big action against Huawei and placed it under a strict sanction program called – Entity List. This prohibits the company from purchasing or accessing U.S.-made or technology that is made of US-originated products.
That’s not it, Huawei has found an even tougher situation under the palm of global politics, which is further pushed by the US. The US campaign targeted Huawei and banned urged its ally countries to do the same on their soil. Some of them followed and others denied it.
The ones that followed have the UK in the list. In July 202, UK’s prime minister – Boris Johnson announced that telecom equipment from Huawei will be removed from the country’s 5G infrastructure by 2027 due to the alleged threat to national security. However, the country also failed to prove it on the ground.
Huawei Kirin and HarmonyOS appears in Chinese study syllabus

A picture shared online shows questions that have carried out an inventory of the product names of China’s most influential technology companies. And said that these product names are very distinctive, including the mobile chipset “Kirin”, the operating system “HarmonyOS”, the server chip “Kunpeng” and more.

U.S. wants to cut Qualcomm supplies to Huawei
The U.S. wants to impose further restrictions on Huawei to completely cut off the supply chains including the goods from Qualcomm and Intel. We could just call it the latest addition to the U.S. administration’s obsession with Huawei.
Reuters reports that the U.S. Government under Joe Biden has come up with a new policy of denial to sell items to Huawei. The list of denial now goes beyond 5G to cover products for 4G, WiFi 6, WiFi 7, A.I., and high-performance cloud computing and cloud items.
A person familiar with the matter revealed that the Biden administration wants to tighten its grip on Huawei and the reversing the approval of 4G chip technology transfer. However, these chips were also approved under the early office of Biden himself.
Back in 2019, the former U.S. president ordered to put Huawei into the so-called Entity List, which bans other companies from selling their goods to Huawei. This led to massive outages in Huawei’s supply chain, as the intent was to empty Huawei from all of its tech access.
So, It lost Google mobile services, 5G chipset, and other crucial components used in telecom products. These sanctions didn’t have effect immediately but the U.S. government staged them to check the impact on the Chinese tech maker.
Qualcomm and intel are one of these companies that were approved to ship their chip to Huawei. Thereafter, Huawei continues to use Qualcomm chips in its all products whether its flagship, mid-range, or tablet device. Therefore, the U.S. likely come upfront to cut Qualcomm and Intel from Huawei.
For the time being, reports are colliding that the latest decision has been made, while a few suggest that the decision is under discussion. Either way, it’s a decision made by a government sitting in a fantasy land and licking a fantasy popsicle.
Why not? The U.S. banned Huawei out of nowhere, and the U.S. government puts a ban on Huawei every year to showcase in the name of protecting U.S. citizens, while it’s just a matter of some headlines that come after such a step.
The U.S. administration thinks that attacking Huawei means attacking China, while the U.S. continues to ship a large number of technologies to many big Chinese smartphone makers. Would, the U.S. also consider cutting ties with them as well, it won’t be a matter of national security.
Truth be told, Huawei is the only company that dominated both the network and smartphone market, and there’s an old saying “When you can’t beat the odds change the game”. Odds have always been in favor of Huawei but the U.S. is continuously changing the game since 2019. But the question is, for how long?
