Re: Huawei's equipment to be removed!


[re: derekdel] [link to this post]
 
I once had a Huawei router, issued by Talk T. It kept taking me to strange Chinese sites.

I think TT issued new software for it.

I think it may be in connection with:-
US media have reported that Huawei is under investigation for potential violations of US sanctions against Iran.


My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk. Domains, site and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Three 4G, tbb tests 35-45Mpbs down, 9-15 up.

Some posts have been removed.

If people can explain why a company belonging to a particular nation is cause for their kit being removed then they are free to post

In reply to a post by witchunt:
I expect the nunber of Huawei cabinets to continue to increase and the number of ECI possibly to decrease slightly


Makes perfect sense. Huawei kit with an upgrade path to 512 lines can be installed to completely replace full ECI 256s.

What is wrong with saying "would you trust an Israeli company?" And I did not say it should be removed - I pointed out that they too are a foreign power.

People are saying that Huawei cannot be trusted because they are Chinese and Chinese hacking. Have a search for Israeli hacking and you will find a lot out there. Is there any proof that equipment supplied by an Israeli company will not have spyware or malicious code included?

Exactly. Not sure why my reply agreeing to it also was removed, too.

There are hackers in all nations, there are hackers in USA too, should we bin all Apple products?

The point here is China's relationship with the West is not great, and the level of interference the Government of China can have in private business exceeds that which would be considered acceptable here.

To equate a democratic country (Israel) with a communist dictatorship renowned for it's state sponsored IP theft (China) meets the requirements of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance definition of antisemitism. You are holding Israel to a higher standard than other countries. It's how Corbyn tied himself up in knots; he wants to be able to criticise Israel which is fine, but he also wants to hold them to a higher standard than other countries which is not fine.

Do trust ECI more than Huawei, dam sure I do. Do I trust anything that has left my network, er not on your life.

today's failure of O2 mobile data (Ericsson core routers) show it isn't just 'malicious code' that can cripple a network
