Wi-Fi Alliance and SD Association also break relations with Huawei

Huawei Case

Relationships continue to break down for Huawei andthan the decree made by the president of the United States, Donald Trump. After the withdrawal of the Android license to Huawei by Google earlier this week, it is the turn of the Wi-Fi Alliance and the SD Association to break ties with the Chinese manufacturer.

With this, Huawei will no longer be able to use microSD cards on future smartphones or other devices and that Huawei may have problems with future standards in Wi-Fi networks. This situation is described as difficult by experts who may have a negative impact on the company's deliveries during the rest of the year.

Trump's decree against Huawei continues to apply. Huawei lost its Android license earlier this week after Google announced that it was taking a break from its collaboration with the company.

And is that as we have been informed from previous days in this case of Huawei where Google has stopped its collaboration with Huawei since Google restricts the use of the Android ecosystem by the Chinese manufacturer.

Huawei has lost access to Android operating system updates, in addition, its next generation of smartphones will be removed from access to popular applications and services, including the Google Play Store, through which users have access to applications such as Gmail.

ARM has done the same to comply with the decree of the presidency of the United States, which threatens the ability of the Chinese to design new chips for their smartphones.

Currently, Huawei no longer has business relationships with a long list of companys from USA Which include Intel, Qualcomm, Xilinx, Broadcom, Qorvo, Micron Technology, and Western Digital.

Wi-Fi Alliance and SD Association join companies breaking relations with Huawei

This list just grew, because yesterday two organizations were added international standards, the Wi-Fi Alliance and the SD Association.

The Wi-Fi Alliance, which sets the standards for wireless technology and includes among its members Apple, Qualcomm, Broadcom and Intel, it has announced that it has "temporarily restricted" Huawei's participation in the activities.

On the other hand, Huawei also disappeared from the list of members of the SD Association. Like ARM, the SD Association has announced that it has retired Huawei to comply with the orders of the United States Department of Commerce.

Huawei remains optimistic despite the circumstances

These two recalls are a hard blow for Huawei, since this situation will prevent Huawei from participating in the development of new standards for its two technologies: Wi-Fi and SD cards.

However, the company still has confidence and hopes that the situation it is currently in will be resolved in the very near future.

“Huawei appreciates its relationships with all partners and associations around the world and understands the difficult situation they are in. We hope that this situation will be resolved and we are working to find the best solution, "said a spokesman for the Chinese group.

In other words, smartphone shipments to Huawei, the second largest smartphone maker in the world, they could fall between 4% and 24% in 2019 if the ban remains in effect.

Additionally, other experts said they expect Huawei's global shipments to decline in the next six months, but declined to give a rough estimate due to uncertainties surrounding the ban.

Finally, Huawei could still develop these chips and related products, because the standards are open to the entire industryBut Chinese society would have no say in the development of Western standards, a situation that could make the giant disappear from international markets.

Rising trade tensions between the United States and China could widen the growing technology gap between the world's two largest economies, market watchers said.
