TAIPEI -- In less than 24 hours' time the world for Huawei Technologies will change -- and its rise as the world's biggest smartphone and telecom equipment maker over the past decade risks coming to a juddering halt.

After midnight on Sept. 14, all its non-American suppliers across the world will have to stop shipping to Huawei if their products contain U.S. technology. Those suppliers will need a license from the U.S. Commerce Department if they want to maintain business with the Chinese tech champion, according to the department's export controls imposed on Aug. 17.
