Intel gets US licences to supply some products to Huawei Technologies

Intel Corp has received licences from US government to continue supplying certain products to Huawei Technologies, a company spokesman has said.

With US-China ties in their worst in decades, Washington has been pushing authorities around the globe to squeeze out Huawei, asserting that the telecoms giant would hand data to the Chinese authorities for espionage.

From the 15th of September, fresh curbs have barred US companies from supplying or servicing Huawei Technologies.

This week the state-backed China Securities Journal said Intel Corp had obtained permission to supply Huawei.

Just last week China’s Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corporation confirmed it had also sought permission to continue servicing Huawei. SMIC uses US-origin gear to earn processors for Huawei and other companies.

Huawei, founded in 1987 by a former scientist at China’s People’s Liberation Army, denies it spies for Beijing and states that the United States is trying to smear it because Western businesses are falling behind in 5G tech. In what some observers have in comparison to the Cold War arms race, the United States worries that any kind of 5G dominance would give communist China an edge leaders in Washington DC are not ready to accept.
