Chinese telecoms giant Huawei Technologies Co Ltd has asked Peruvian authorities to trademark its 'Hongmeng' operating system, a sign it may be deploying a back-up plan in key markets in case U.S. sanctions hit its current business model. Peru's anti-trust agency Indecopi said Huawei filed the trademark request on May 27, days after the United States put Huawei on a blacklist that barred it from business with global tech companies such as Alphabet Inc, whose Android operating system is used in Huawei phones. Richard Yu, the CEO of Huawei's consumer division, told German newspaper Die Welt in an interview earlier this year that the company has a back-up operating system in case it was cut off from U.S.-made software.
