According to Reuters on October 20th, a US trade delegation visited Brazilian President Bolsonaro to offer financing to telecommunications companies that purchase network equipment from suppliers other than Huawei.

China is Brazil’s biggest trading partner and Huawei currently supplies equipment to telecommunications companies. Brazil plans to auction the 5G spectrum next year and this effort may be an attempt to convince Brazilian authorities to look at other 5G suppliers.

If successful, Brazil would join the US, UK, Australia, Sweden and Japan as countries already taking a position on banning Huawei into their 5G network.

Huawei’s latest license extension cut in half by US government, 45 instead of 90 days.

Since May of 2019, Huawei has been placed on the US entity list and therefore unable to conduct business with US companies. However, the Trump administration did permit companies to do business with Huawei through license extensions.

The most recent 90-day extension was granted in November 2019, allowing companies to do business with Huawei until the expiration of 90 days.

Last week, an 45-day extension was granted. After 45 days, and if no further extensions are granted, then American companies can no longer do business with Huawei.

The Sen. Cotton bill is just one of several legislative efforts against Huawei for potential national security concerns – last year Huawei was placed on the entity list.

The countries and companies that are considering Huawei’s 5G equipment include: Bahrain, Belgium, Britain Telecom, France, Hungary, Norway, Thailand and more.

The countries and companies that ban Huawei’s 5G equipment include: the United States, Australia, Facebook, Google, Japan, Microsoft, New Zealand, Softbank, Sophos, South Korea, University of Oxford, UAE, Verizon Communications and Vodafone.
