Strangely no real proof of those backdoors was ever forthcoming. That's not to say Hauwei doesn't produce horrifically bad firmware at certain product levels. It does. 3rd party audits have found mind bogglingly bad things such as multiple different versions of flawed libraries being used, within a single product.Yet the aus government knocked back The 4th telco merge because they didn’t trust that Huawei equipment was ‘in Australia’s best interests’ due to perceived backdoors built into the code allowing remote exploits. Everything comes with a price tag, sometimes cheap is not what it seems.
At the sort of level I was talking about in my last post, China isn't cheap anyway. It's a myth that China is cheap. It's cheap if you want cheap crap. If you want something done properly in China, it can be a bit cheaper than the more familiar Euro/USA etc names, but not a whole lot.
