No! Really! We Are Not Huawei!
Huawei’s US-based research arm, Futurewei Technologies, has moved to separate its operations from its Chinese corporate parent.
In an attempt to circumvent the US blacklist restrictions on Huawei, Futurewei has banned Huawei employees from its offices.
Futurewei employees have also moved to a new IT system and are forbidden from using the Huawei name or logo in communications.
The division of operations comes as many American universities halt research partnerships with Huawei, in reaction to Washington’s allegations that the company poses a national security threat.
Futurewei is Huawei’s US-based research and development arm and has offices in Silicon Valley, Seattle, Chicago and Dallas.
