Google wanted to “come back” with Huawei

US tech giant Google said the Trump administration’s ban on Huawei could prompt Chinese technology firm to build a more hackable Android alternative and threaten US interests.

According to the Financial Times, Google has issued a warning to the Trump administration about the risks to US national security if it continues to ban Huawei. Simutaneously, the US software firm wants the government to remove the ban with Huawei soon.

Google senior executives warn that no longer cooperating with Google will push Huawei to develop its own operating system. In fact, the company has developed its own operating system platform called Hongmeng OS or Ark OS for a long time and is gradually improving. It will be a customized “Android version” and an opportunity for hackers to steal information.

Especially, Huawei is a big smartphone company, so the risk of exposing users’ information in allied countries to the US or even the American people is very high.

In the short term, Huawei is clearly suffering from the ban because of losing an important operating system partner like Google. But according to industry experts, this actually brings significant benefits when pushing Huawei to become more independent.

Huawei will strengthen itself and develop technologies to help them stand firm in the wind. That is not to mention, the Chinese government has pledged to provide its full support, increasing R&D funding for technology companies and the country’s industry in the context of US trade sanctions. This inadvertently threatens the dominance of American companies in the long run.

Perhaps aware of the potential risks and significant impact of the ban on revenue from licensing and advertising, Google has hinted at the possibility of asking the government to exclude the company from the list of grants which cooperate with Huawei.

The move promises to help Google manage Android OS, continuously release important security updates to all Huawei smartphones in the world.

It has been more than half a month since the US government officially issued an ordinance to ban US companies from cooperating with Huawei, so far nothing has improved. The US government still considers Huawei, the world’s leading provider of 5G telecommunications network equipment, a leading threat to national security and said it was Beijing’s spy.

Even Mr. Trump once said that Huawei is a dangerous company but left open the possibility of resolving the company’s problems on the negotiating table with Beijing.

On the other hand, the US Department of Commerce has also postponed the ban for another three months to wait for new signals from both sides. During this time, many US companies, including Google, Microsoft, Intel, Qualcomm, and most recently, Facebook all stopped working with Huawei. US government

This week, awei chairman Liang Hua shared with reporters that Google is working with the US Department of Commerce to find a solution to solve problems, and to resume cooperation with Huawei.

He also confirmed that Huawei will not negotiate directly with the and will wait for Google’s negotiations to progress. Huawei representatives even insist, if the company is forced to develop a separate operating system, they can do it very quickly.

Huawei requires US national employees to leave the company

After the ban, Huawei immediately canceled important meetings, demanding that US national employees leave their headquarters in China.

Dang Wenshua, Huawei’s chief strategy architect, revealed that American employees working at Huawei’s R&D department returned to the US two weeks ago, shortly after the US government put Chinese corporation in blacklist, prohibit trade transactions.

According to him, it was Huawei who asked these employees to leave the Headquarters in Shenyang, after receiving an embargo notice from the administration of President Trump. Even an important meeting took place at that time was canceled and US citizens were asked to turn off the computer, disconnect and leave Huawei’s office. Later, visitors to the Chinese company’s headquarters were also subject to security checks to ensure they did not carry an American passport.

The revelation from the leader showed that Huawei reacted immediately to the US government’s request to avoid infringement. Under a trade embargo, US companies are not allowed to sell or trade US products and technology to Huawei without a government license.

Eric Crusius, partner of Holland & Knight law firm, said it was impossible to estimate the difficulties that Huawei faced with this trade embargo. Stopping communication between the company and US employees and offices will make them isolated from the rest of the world and this is not good.

Huawei is being accused of stealing technology, implicit transactions with Iran and a data collection tool for the Chinese government. Meanwhile, the company’s leaders said they were blacklisted because the US side wanted to restrain recent technological development. Chinese telecommunications group is said to be at the forefront of 5G technology.

On May 15, the US Department of Commerce put Huawei and 68 branches on a ban in fields of buying parts and components from the US company without the approval of the US government. In turn, big companies like Google, Microsoft, Intel, Qualcomm, Xilinx, ARM … announced to stop business cooperation with Huawei. After that, the United States had eased the deadline to enforce the ban by 90 days.
