Earlier, on May 16, the United States announced a series of sanctions against Huawei, including the signing of an executive order prohibiting US companies from buying.
However, Huawei later obtained a temporary license from the U.S. Department of Commerce to delay the implementation of Huawei's ban for 90 days, which is valid from May 21 to August 19. On August 17, the temporary permit was extended for another 90 days, ending on November 17, 2019.
Seeing the deadline approaching,On November 16, according to foreign media reports, US officials plan to extend the validity of the temporary license for Huawei again.
According to foreign media, the extension will last for two weeks, i.e. until December 1As for why it is not as long as 90 days as before, it is said that it is due to regulatory reasons. But neither U.S. officials nor Huawei have confirmed the authenticity of the news.
This temporary license is mainly for Huawei to continue to provide follow-up support for existing users. It seems to violate the decision of the us to sanction Huawei, but there are very practical reasons behind it. Many small and medium-sized urban and rural telecommunication networks in the United States are provided by some small operators. Most of these operators choose Huawei equipment because of the cost problem. If Huawei suddenly disappears, the subsequent maintenance of these operators will become a problem.
