Hey everyone welcome back to tech feed i’m juliet beauchamp You guessed it–today i’m covering the changes to the huawei ban following the g-20 summit

Stick around Remember executive order that barred all business transactions between u-s companies and huawei? And remember the panic–and backlash from tech companies–that ensued? Well, no need to panic anymore President trump essentially reversed the ban as a part of trade talks with china at the g-20 summit this past weekend So let’s talk details of the reversal

In a win for big tech, president trump said u-s companies can sell products to huawei that don’t interfere with u-s national security–what his administration is calling quote general merchandise So that’s a huge relief for companies like intel, micron and google Intel and micron sell physical chips for huawei to use in its devices, and huawei phones run on google’s android operating system It seems like business can return to normal for those companies Okay, if business can return to normal, then what was the point of the whole ban? Well, the ban began because of alleged security risks associated with huawei technology

But that never meant devices like phones or laptops The u-s government’s case against huawei is that its wireless equipment could be used to spy on the united states Huawei has denied this claim time and time again But it seems like this ban reversal upholds those original security claims Under the reversal, it doesn’t seem as though huawei equipment can be used as the united states builds 5-g networks

And that’s big, since huawei is a global leader in 5-g infrastructure So where does this reversal put u-s 5-g deployment? Well, frankly, it’s still where it always was It’s unlikely any u-s telecom companies would have felt comfortable using huawei’s tech anywhere in their networks, so most have planned around the chinese company anyway But not using huawei tech could put the u-s at a global disadvantage for 5-g United states diplomats have lobbied against allies using huawei equipment, but most countries have ignored their requests

It’s likely the united states will lose the race to be the first country with widespread 5-g–and lose out on the innovation that could come with it Thanks for watching this episode of tech feed If you liked this video be sure to give it a thumbs up and subscribe to our channel We won’t have a tech feed for the next week or so while we’re on vacation, so you have plenty of time to let me know what you think about the ban reversal–and are you surprised?
