How valid are the security concerns over Huawei and ZTE products?
kreiley 1 year ago
Since the House Intelligence Committee released a report that warned against using network equipment from China due to security risks, and mentioned Huawei and ZTE by name. To be honest, I find it a little suspect because (1) it's October, just before the election, (2) it's a Republican ran committee, and (3) Mitt Romney has started criticizing Barak Obama as being "soft on China." The timing just seems a little too convenient.
That said, even a broken clock is right two times a day. Do they have a legitimate concern on this issue? Would you be hesitant to use Huawei or ZTE products? What are the alternatives anyway?
