FCC bans Huawei, cites “an unacceptable risk to national security”

Dahua Technology, Hikvision, Hytera and ZTE are also banned

The US telecom watchdog is going to ban equipment from five Chinese companies from the United States. These include Huawei products.

In addition, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) no longer provides licenses for the import or sale of products from Dahua Technology, Hikvision, Hytera and ZTE. According to the government organization, the devices of those companies “pose an unacceptable risk to national security”.

The US government accuses the Chinese tech companies of enabling espionage through backdoors in their technology. Huawei has always denied these allegations.

Other countries have also banned or restricted the use of Huawei telecom equipment. This happened in Australia, Canada, Japan, the United Kingdom and Sweden, among others.
