UK pays the price of doing what the US commands

Huawei has announced a series of layoffs in the UK as the company is forced to alter its corporate strategy in the face of further bans and restrictions.

The Chinese giant is set to pull sales all of its Enterprise hardware lines, including all servers, storage and networking switches from the UK. The news means severe job cuts across Huawei's Enterprise hardware divisions in the UK as the company faces yet more challenges, despite pledges to remain in the country.

So far 50 positions in the Enterprise team are on the chopping block. The European arm of the Enterprise division is not thought to be affected by the news.

Huawei said it will deliver fewer products in a better way. It wanted to reposition colleagues who are affected elsewhere within the businesses.

"Ultimately, the business has done a review and decided to focus on a number of product lines and the company will provide full service and maintenance to existing customers for the life-cycle of our products."
