The WiFi Alliance, Bluetooth Technology Alliance, and the JEDEC Association (Solid State Technology Association) have regained their membership in Huawei.
The WiFi Alliance said earlier that “the WiFi Alliance fully complies with the recent orders of the US Department of Commerce, but it does not revoke Huawei’s technology membership. The WiFi Alliance temporarily restricts Huawei’s participation in the WiFi Alliance covered by the project. activity.”
It is reported that the WiFi Alliance is called the International WiFi Alliance. It was established in 1999 and is responsible for WiFi authentication and trademark licensing. The main purpose is to set wireless technology standards on a global scale, and to implement compatible certification and trademark authorization for WiFi products.
At present, there are more than 800 members in the alliance, and Intel, Qualcomm, Broadcom and Apple are all members. WiFi is also one of the most widely used wireless technologies in the world.
In addition to WiFi, a widely used wireless connection technology, Bluetooth technology is also very popular in consumer electronics, the most common being Bluetooth headsets.
It is understood that the Bluetooth SIG (Bluetooth Technology Alliance), which previously approved and certified all Bluetooth devices, also suspended Huawei membership.
