Points of information
I don't know enough about the issue to take a strong stance.  I suspect there are non-publicized political reasons that are really at play here and that the real reasons have little to do with fear of cyberespionage.

Simply to be fair, in any case.

1) Game theory. Let's say I'm 1) smart and 2) a spy, and so I decide to look and act like a spy -- knowing you know that I'm looking and acting like a spy and therefore I couldn't possibly be a spy because I couldn't possibly be that incompetent a spy because you also know me to be smart.

Likely in this case?  I doubt it.  But China has been known to be brazen in its espionage and enjoying the fruits therefrom.  So it's an interesting point, at least.  (At least, it interests me.)

2) "Security experts have told me a much more likely approach would be for the Chinese to install backdoors into silicon being manufactured in China for use in telecom equipment manufactured and sold by US equipment manufacturers."

Interestingly, this has already happened at least once.  (Link)  The only question is whether it was malicious.

Re: terrible post
Well, there was a time a few years ago for a while when China (as part of it's "Five-Year Plan") was kicking the US's butt in terms of IPv6 adoption.

But I'm not sure that's what you're looking for.

Re: terrible post
responding to your arguments:

1) show me the statistics that demonstrate US leads China in cyberwarfare against china and US partners. i can show you several reports and documentaries and lawsuits filed in US courts against Chinese entities, citizens all showing clear culpability in using cyberattacks by China and or China linked entities to steal US and international intellectual property

2) we are not disputing the level of intellect within huawei but the entire world knows that China is great at copying others, contrary to western countries. Pls show me a single tech invention from China last few years that China took leadership in. Most of what China does is replicate and steal from western countries...that's a global fact..and thats the reason why Donald Trump is rising in the presidential polls, because americans feel abused and taken advantage of by China...perhaps time for you to change course a bit???

3) i dont understand this argument. Dell was public for 2 decades before going private and i am sure they will not be private for more than few years. the process of going public/private/public is quite common in a free market. and let me educate you a bit: Dell will be owned by debt holders and private equity investors and unlike in China, we have a very strong and transparent financial reporting system that allows us to see quarterly who owns what... the whole world knows Huawei and China economy as a whole functions at the drumbeat of the govt...no wonder why so many bad things happening

Re: Garbage article
If one takes agreement with the "zero evidence to back up the Committee's supposition and suspicion." it would be appropriate to look past our predjudices and seek what may in the long run be good for the industry and consumers. As pointed out if China were to be spying it would not be in the most likely place to be found.

Re: If you like Huawei so much.....
know - I would state Huawei is "working" technology, that may be "good" but not really "great".   If you know their products intimately, which I had the pleasure of in both transport and access, you will find a "working" product that is sometimes "good".   

As mentioned - SPs love technology at a steal - "50% less than ALU or CSCO or JNPR, sure!!".  Huawei, if anything, has afforded the commoditization of network gear.  Maybe that's awesome, but maybe that's why the networking tech world is so darn boring and painful these days.

Re: If you like Huawei so much.....
NorCal -- Based on your premise, how is Huawei's approach different from other suppliers and manufacturers from developing countries? Yet there are no meaningful bans on most other cheap goods and services that are now integral to the US economy. If there were, Wal-Mart shelves would be pretty bare. US-based companies long ago lost the appetite and the will to compete in the manufacturing realm. Even the companies that continue to succeed in the tech sector are moving away from making boxes.

Re: Garbage article
ROTFL

every each time someone put on perspective relationship between west and east there is also a lot of righteous people that rise up against the evil.

the article is balanced and even representing a personal opinion of the author I would say deserve at least to be read with open eyes. All I have seen here are empty, irrational comments withouth any fact behind.

sad.

Re: If you like Huawei so much.....
Again you should know before claim.

"Does Huawei operate within the same ethics as companies based in North America are required to by law in their business practises?  No.  Hauwei's domination globally has built on a history "win at all costs". " 

Seriously? coming from USA? where tech compay has used any legal and not so legal means to stop competition?

If win at all cost means selling good products at the right price, isn't this the meaning of competition in a free market? If huawei has been able to produce egineering and services in a competitive manner isn't this to be appreciate?

If the telco market is divided into Chinese and European companies may be the responsability is not of huawei but of not so well managed USA companies that were not able to scale quality, competitiveness, innovation and service to customer

Or you really think that BT, Vofafone, Telefonica, Deutch Telekom, Telecom Italia, Belgacom are a bunch of tecnology ignorant and so prone to be easy manipulated?

Re: terrible post
change China with Japan, computers with cars and it sound like a couple of decade agos again... again western claim Eastern to copy, stole IP, claim for trade barrier and so on....

Just a few points:

about cyberattacks: a private company can't be held resposible for government's country behaviour otherwise, using the same metric, USA should be banned by all markets. the truth is that cyberwarfare comes both form east and west, and USA is leading in this area. It would be against Huawei or ZTE interest to support those activities, since are always under the spotlight and tight contol. It will be simply foolish and would led to lose the market.

about Intellectual property: every major technological western vendor use china as a supplier, and estabilsh there R&D center. On the other end Chinese tech vendors also use westerns as suppliers to build their goods. in a open free market this is a common, sound, approach and so huawei buy technology also from USA, helping USA economy in that sense. Huawei also hold a great number of patents, even in USA, Intellectual Property is a common issue even for chinese companies.

about being a private company: being private does not means being a state sponsored, otherwise we could state Dell is owed\sponsored\controlled by USA government? Huawei publish its financial report and it is subject to international auditing even if could avoid to do that. I would suggest you to see why Dell leaved the stock market.

sometimes would be better to put subtantials fact instead of empty claims. But this require, I suppose, to be able to substantiate the argument....
