Huawei Sues US Government Over NDAA Ban

By: Charles Rollet, Published on Mar 07, 2019

Chinese telecom giant Huawei is suing the US government over the NDAA ban, arguing that key provisions in it are unconstitutional.

NDAA Section 889 is poised to have a monumental impact on the video surveillance industry as it bans US governmental use and funding for Dahua, Hikvision, and Huawei offerings. Dahua and Hikvision are the two largest suppliers globally of video surveillance while Huawei, through its Hisilicon subsidiary is the largest supplier of chips for video surveillance cameras.

However, if Huawei is successful in its lawsuit against the US government, however unlikely, it would significantly impact the NDAA's implementation and impact on the video surveillance industry.

In this post, we examine the video surveillance implications of Huawei’s lawsuit, including:

  • What impact does Huawei's lawsuit have on Dahua and Hikvision?
  • How would Huawei Hisilicon chips be impacted by the lawsuit?
  • What is the timing of this lawsuit vs the ban's implementation?
  • What is Huawei's case against the US government?
  • What Huawei has been doing to counter the US government's legislation and actions?
