US bans Huawei, ZTE telecom gear due to security risk

US authorities on Friday announced a ban on the import or sale of communications equipment deemed an “unacceptable risk to national security” – including gear from Chinese giants Huawei Technologies and ZTE.

Both companies are on the roster of companies listed as a threat by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), and new rules bar future authorizations of their equipment.

The move is the latest in a series of actions to limit Chinese telecoms firms’ access to United States networks, and comes amid a long-running standoff between the world’s two largest economies.

US officials have shown increasing vigilance in recent years of Chinese telecommunications companies and technology.
