The limited activity license will end on August 19th.
The US Department of Commerce issued Huawei a 90-day limited activity license in the country. The company will be able to provide updates for its mobile devices used in the USA. This is reported on the site office.
The license allows the company to provide service devices, including software updates for smartphones. It also allows for the maintenance of networks and telecommunications equipment. The license will expire on August 19, 2019. Then the ministry will decide whether to extend its action.
The temporary license gives the company time to take action, and the ministry can identify long-term measures that will affect Americans and foreign providers using Huawei devices to provide services.
In short, this license will allow the continued provision of Huawei smartphones used in the US.Wilbur RossSecretary of Commerce
The founder of Huawei, Ren Zhengfei, said that such a move by the United States would not affect the company’s operations, since they had long been preparing for such a scenario: “The US government underestimates our capabilities.”
On May 16, the US Department of Commerce decided to add Huawei and 70 related companies to the “black list”. After that, the company will not be able to buy components and technologies of American manufacturers without permission from the United States.
May 19, Google suspended cooperation with Huawei, associated with the provision of licensed developments in the field of hardware and software. Following Google, chip makers Intel, Qualcomm, Xilinx and Broadcom announced to their employees that they would not supply the necessary components of Huawei.
