Global technology companies from Japan, UK and US are cutting off ties with China’s Huawei Technologies Co after the Trump administration put the world’s largest telecom equipment maker on a trade blacklist, citing national security concerns, said Reuters.
Google was one of the first companies to stop doing business with Huawei, suspending the transfer of hardware, software and technical services, except those publicly available via open source licensing. Radio frequency and optimal communications chipmakers, Lumentum Holdings Inc, Qorvo Inc and Analog Device Inc have also halted shipments to the Chinese telecom company.
Chipmakers and tech companies Inphi Corp, Arm, Intel Corp, Qualcomm, Panasonic Corp Inc, Xilinx Inc and Broadcom Inc have all made announcements that they will also be suspending business and no longer supply Huawei with critical software.
Phone companies EE, part of BT, and Vodafone have paused plans to offer Huawei smartphones as a part of their line ups, said the Financial Times.
