Universities Unplug Chinese-made Telecom Equipment

US universities are refraining from using telecom equipment made by Huawei Technologies and other Chinese companies to avoid losing research grant and government funding. The academic institutions have until August 2020 to comply with the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which was signed into law in August 2018. The NDAA was enacted amid allegations that Chinese telecom manufacturers are producing equipment that allows China to spy on users. Besides Huawei, other Chinese companies affected include ZTE, Hikvision, Hytera and Dahua Technology.
