Re: Espionage
Which would lead you to think that the NSA probably has some backdoor agreements either with the German secrect services, European carriers or network vendors; or any/all of the above. I have no idea which though, since this is all such a murky business.

Espionage
It doesn't seem that the NSA needed to supply the mobile network infrastructure to listen in to Angela Merkel's phone calls ...

Liquidated Damages
I suspect the KPIs are tied to Liquidated Damages.
Very hard to actually enforce.

To buy a network based on a one-time (or x month) performance evaluation at the end of the build does not make sense.

Having KPIs in contracts tied to monetary or other values is nothing new.

Re: Any chance this sets a precedent?
Seems the sort of due diligence that all carriers should do. Bear in mind the case against Huawei is only theoretical. In all the gear it's installed installed in dozens of countries no-one has uncovered any backdoors, so you'd think TDC is on reasonably safe ground.


The customer experience metrics sound interesting. Basically it means TDC and Huawe are constantly war-driving around the country to make sure that the network coverage and the end-user quality are better than that offered by rival networks. If it works, it could be a new craze. If not, both of them could be in the tank. Ryan Ding from Huawei says other operators are interested in it, but none is anywhere near ready to commit to it.

Re: Any chance this sets a precedent?
Somehow I don't think the Danes are walking into this with their eyes closed - even if the price was right, and we have to assume it was - won't they have thought of all of this?

Re: Any chance this sets a precedent?
You hit the nail on the head. And to add, just because the equipment and software tested passed doesn't mean that's what will ship and install.  So to your point they must be planning to monitor constantly.  Are they really that gullible?

Re: Any chance this sets a precedent?
I have to wonder how they vetted millions of lines of code but more importantly, just because the current hardware and software passed security tests there is nothing to stop Huawei from adding code, re-routing calls, intercepting messages or anything else in the future unless the Danish Security folks will be monitoring constantly.  One still has to wonder about security.  Sorry to sound so negative but there are a LOT of ongoing possibilities to affect security.

Re: Any chance this sets a precedent?

Are they serious? 


"Huawei has committed to ensuring that TDC's network will have the best user experience in the market, the best operational performance and the best network coverage. The contract sets specific indicators for each."


 

How do you SLA this?

Can Huawei use this  to convince other countries its gear is not a threat to national security? If so, there could be a price war brewing.

Re: Wonder what they tested....
Is it even possible to give the all-clear on millions of lines of code in network kit?

Still, sounds like a more realistic approach than, say, asking the opinion of Congress.
