re: Huawei Bites at the IP Core I do believe this is a market and technology forum, should we just focus a bit? I dont think any similar fun will change anything.

re: Huawei Bites at the IP Core I have to admit that this is a great achievement for Huawei. A vendor that is able to build the most complex network element has the technology to build them all. It seems that the HW platform is presently superior to CRS-1 and T-Series. Does anyone have any knowledge about the NE5K SW ?

re: Huawei Bites at the IP Core Its built on huawei's VRP, I think.

Been around awhile and very stable imho. (Usual patches & what not but nothing out of the ordinary.)

What the LR article didn't mention is that Huawei are promising to scale the platform to 160Tb! Now that is a different league and kills anything that Cisco or Juniper are promising... so things get interesting.

And to the photoshop crank with too much red-bull and free time on the nightshift, I would say this. If you can in anyway state or prove that Huawei has links to the military then lets hear it. Otherwise shut-up and go post on Facebook. This is a networking site for pro's, not a rumour mill for your mindless attempts at fun or fud.

re: Huawei Bites at the IP Core
Link to the PLA is simple:

The Chairman of Huawei is a General (or ex-General depending on your view) of the PLA.

re: Huawei Bites at the IP Core Link? Simple??

Brooke maybe you need to upgrade to 8 or lay off the green.

From what I understand the CEO was in the PLA, but that was almost 30 years ago. If you have any EVIDENCE to the contrary then please share.

Otherwise quit the fud or rumour mill rubbish.

Either you know or you don't and your just repeating the same old tosh doing the rounds. I call it tosh because if I ever hear it and ask someone what they are basing it on they fail to give me an answer.

I would imagine that is what your going to do. Or maybe your going to argue that its true because your mate down the bus stop told you it.

This is a forum for discussion, so I await your reply.

re: Huawei Bites at the IP Core
Beyond the donation of $6B per annum that Huawei got from the PLA during the startup phase?

re: Huawei Bites at the IP Core Bio presented at "Plenary Session 6: High-Tech Entrepreneurship in China for IAMOT2007" titled "About Huawei Corp. CEO - Ren Zhengfei" is the following "Ren Zhengfei is a former officer of the People's Liberation Army. He joined the Communist Party of China in 1958, and
is member of the 12th National Congress of the Communist Party of China."

Success in China has been traditionally linked to one's rank in the Communist Party. As for more evidence, lets face it Souperfly, China has not be (is not today) an open society to information. Example - Tibet. How is this germaine to the tech discussion forum? Because it is valid to question whether this company has to play be the same free market rules that other companies must play by. There is no question H. is a formidable competitor.

re: Huawei Bites at the IP Core @litereading; I see your point about China generally. Lets not get into a discussion about Tibet, because that brings up what the US & Uk are doing with Israel & Palestine. The world media's mock shock at Tibet is a farcical smoke-screen to hide what is happening in Palestine. (Read widely & you will see what I mean.
@Brookeseven. Sources? You state this $6b like its a fact, from where? As for your argument that he was a general and member of the PLA yes, but a long time ago. Pretty much anyone of influence in china is a member of the communist party. I see nothing intrinsically wrong with that. That is the system in china. You can argue about its "legitimacy" from a western perspective but I don't. The democratic model is not a "1 size" fits all panacea. Iraq, Afganistan, Mozambique, etc all prove that.

That's life. There is nothing wrong with diversity in the political system & model people choose.

Am sure Cisco's Management team have connections in the sentate & house of reps, in addition to CIA, NSA, etc. Does that make them a "threat"? You bet! Do we black list & argue about them? No! Why? Because ultimately, its about trust.

If you dont trust the Huawei then say that & state why. My caution is that people on here post from the perspective that they are from china & therefore by definition cannot be trusted. That is western propaganda and plainly nonsense!

Cisco, Juniper and all the vendors that I know source significant quantities of components from chinese manufacturers. So your buying from China whether you acknowledge it or not.
