Hard to believe why a big corporation like ZTE would risk running foul of US laws, and being caught red-handed and agreeing to dismiss some employees, it did not fulfill that agreement and so ended up being punished again, this time so severely that it risks its very survival!
ZTE forgot they are dealing with US law enforcers, they must be so used to playing the 'guanxi' game in China and getting away with a slap on the wrist, they think they can get away breaking the law in the US too.

It seems like a bad news to ZTE; however, it's a good strengthening point to China as a whole to place more emphasis on her domestic chipset development. So in long term, it's a good sign to China.
In terms of national security, it's not wise to rely on foreign supply on core high tech stuffs.
The U.S. had banned China in space projects, and we see how great a leap in the China space projects in the past decades. Same thing willl happen to chipset industry, China will make the best chips sooner or later, just a matter of time, and we will see.
