President Donald Trump is considering an executive order in the new year to declare a national emergency that would bar U.S. companies from using telecommunications equipment made by China's Huawei and ZTE, three sources familiar with the situation told Reuters.
The recent diplomatic dust-up over Chinese telecoms company Huawei, one of the leaders in developing equipment for fifth-generation mobile networks, has demonstrated that the 5G technology, which promises to enable an internet of things and self-driving vehicles, also poses risks.
Tensions between the U.S. and China shifted to another course from tariffs. Last week, the Canadian police arrested Meng Wanzhou, Huawei's chief financial officer and daughter of the firm's founder, upon the demand of the U.S.
And this has proven to be "a very good commercial move."
Mihailo Vesovic, an adviser to the president of the Serbian Chamber of Commerce, said this, and added that Chinese companies will support Serbian firms when they digitize part of their production or move over completely to "industry 4.0, digitization."
Huawei Technologies Co Ltd's chief financial officer faces U.S. accusations that she covered up her company's links to a firm that tried to sell equipment to Iran despite sanctions, a Canadian prosecutor said on Dec. 7, arguing against giving her bail while she awaits extradition.
President Donald Trump did not know about plans to arrest a top executive at Chinese telecoms giant Huawei in Canada, two U.S. officials said on Dec. 6, in an apparent attempt to stop the incident from impeding crucial trade talks with Beijing.
A top executive and daughter of the founder of Chinese telecom giant Huawei has been arrested in Canada and faces extradition to the United States, officials said Thursday, angering Beijing days into a trade war truce with the US.
The new technology is the network of the future. What will exactly offer?
One key goal of 5G is to dramatically improve quality of service, and extend that quality over a broader geographic area, in order for the wireless industry to remain competitive against the onset of gigabit fiber service coupled with Wi-Fi.
Huawei is working on its own voice assistant that works outside of China, potentially pitting it against software produced by Google and Amazon, according to CNBC.
In China, Huawei has its own voice assistant called Xiaoyi which operates in its smart speaker called the AI Cube and its smartphones. But it is only for the Chinese market.
