Huawei was placed on a United States black list of sorts, which resulted in many American tech companies, such as Google or Broadcom, to sever all ties with the Chinese firm. The Commerce Department also permitted Huawei to purchase U.S. products for a 90-day period.

Huawei was put on a blacklist last week by U.S. over national security concerns. "It is unlikely that it will last for more than a year", Mr Quattromani said.
