Re: Huawei on the ready?
I'll bet they would and we'll put you in charge of keeping them honest.

Re: Huawei on the ready?
I don't have information on whether or not this rumor is true - though Simon Leopold is well respected.

On the Huawei supplier possibility though, I can say with some confidence that this is not happening at Verizon, AT&T, or at other U.S. tier 1s or even tier 2s any time soon. Given the government position on Huawei in the U.S., the risks for these operators are too high. 

Huawei seems to have a very long term strategy for the U.S. though and continues to push - so I can't say never. Also, Huawei is a big supporter of ONOS, and so is AT&T, so I suspect that Huawei's ONOS influence is part of its long term U.S. strategy. For years, standards body leadership has been part of its overall strategy to gain market share.

Huawei on the ready?
They would love a 2nd supplier shot and would slice about four zero's off the selling price.
