Anyone else get this email?


Not yet, and given my super low tech product line, I’d be quite surprised if I did.

But yeah, it’s a thing for some people making sure that nobody working for the company uses a Huawei…

Are there any smartphones, switches or routers made in the USA?

And if there are, are they using open source software?

I have no clue what telecommunications equipment which cannot compromise national security or if there is any.

We have for our military clients outside of Amazon. Amazon has not sent us that particular email.
My first request was in 2021.

Cisco is allowed.

I believe that Allen-Bradley now owned by Rockwell Automation still manufactures switches and routers in their Milwaukee facility.

Their stuff isn’t cheap, Allen-Bradley’s Stratix 5410 Industrial Distribution Switches costs about $20K.

American tech company, Librem produces its privacy-focused Linux smartphone, Librem 5, in the USA.

@Sundance I was actually thinking to post the same question here! We also received an email.

I checked our phones super quickly last week…and it appears Poly/Plantronics devices were OK. (Though I’d want to triple check before actually submitting!)

@SawleMill - our product line is super low tech. My thinking is that we’re a B2B product, and/or the fact that some government customer has ordered from us in the past (at least that’s what it shows in B2B Central has gotten us flagged as a potential government supplier.


Does anyone know what an “AB Seller ID” is?

You will wish to independently verify this but I think that is your Amazon merchant token.
