More problems with ZTE especially since the link to Iran was trying to be covered up.

Cisco reportedly drops sales pact with ZTE after claims of roundabout Iran dealings -- Engadget

Quote:
Cisco has reportedly dropped an already rocky seven-year deal with ZTE after it learned that the Chinese firm had been selling Cisco's networking gear to the Telecommunication Company of Iran as recently as July of last year. Being implicated in an end-run around US trade sanctions isn't great for business, as you'd imagine. While Cisco CEO John Chambers wouldn't directly confirm the severed link in a chat with Reuters, he noted that we would "not see that [sort of deal] happen again" -- an indication that his company at least isn't happy with the current state of affairs. ZTE isn't waiting for any public acknowledgment to voice its frustration and says it's "highly concerned," although it's not helped by allegations from its own US general counsel that there was an attempt to cover up the Iranian link. Nothing is definite until the investigations go public, but the Iran connection could make it that much harder for ZTE to keep US customers regardless of its distance from the Chinese government.

These people do know that a huge percentage of computer networking gear is made in chinese factories even when it has a US manufacturer name on the front.

That includes the precious iPhones too.

Just because people are afraid doesn't mean they're always wrong.

In partnerships with Mot, 3Comm, and IBM, I personally witnessed Huawei sucking IP in, and then cancelling the project once they had source code and schematics, before they shared their design. When a project with the Chinese government came along, Huawei would always win it with knockoffs of the designs they'd stolen. We couldn't penetrate Indonesia at all because Huawei was already selling clones of our gear there.

I was with a startup once when a South Korean "partner" actually called me up to get help reverse engineering the software.

But Huawei are the kings of networking IP theft. They are systematic about it. Sorry, it's just a fact.
