NXTcomm History, Part II

Phil Harvey

9:00 AM -- Today's moment in NXTcomm/Globalcomm/Supercomm history takes us way back to the year 2004, when Light Reading founder Peter Heywood assisted Ray Le Maistre and me in breaking what a lot of folks considered the single biggest story of the entire tradeshow: Huawei in Spying Flap.

As the show floor closed for business, accusations of corporate espionage flew toward Huawei, which allegedly had been caught tampering with telecom equipment in its competitors' booths. Light Reading not only broke the story, but we had the only interview (via a translator) with the fella at the center of the controversy.

Essay question: Has Huawei's reputation improved in the past few years or do folks in the industry still consider it an intellectual property copycat?
