US Government For Bans Huawei Products, The Company To Sue The Government

The government of the United States has banned the use of Huawei products by its federal agencies and its contractors, passing a bill including a section that addressed restrictions on the use of Huawei products pertaining to security concerns. As a response to this, the Chinese tech giant Huawei is all set to train its guns on US government.

The constitutionality of Section 889 of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that was signed into law by Donald Trump, US President is being challenged by the smartphone maker, Huawei. The ban which also covers ZTE products was pertaining to the suspicion raised by the US government over Huawei products being a threat to the nationrsquo;s security.

According to Huawei, the repeated failures to produce evidence that can support a ban on its products make the ban being imposed as unlawful.
Huaweirsquo;s Chairman Guo Ping gave a statement making references to restricting fair competition, consequently harming the US consumers and to much rather taking up ldquo;real security issuesrdquo;.

Though going head on after the US government may not fetch the desired results Huawei is hoping for, according to some experts.

It is important to note, that even though the United States government has banned Huawei products, regular consumers will not be directly affected by this ban. The ban imposed on the products of Huawei is exclusively imposed for federal agencies and their contractors to make sure that security concerns related to the smartphone maker in question does not affect them in any way. Smartphone and other Huawei products will be sold in open market for the regular consumers to purchase if they wish to.
