Interesting article in last week's BloombergBusinessWeek about Denmark kicking Huawei out of the network. HW was up for a multi-year contract renewal and waited until Ericsson submitted a price and then very quickly, HW came in just a hair under that price.
That gamesmanship caused the contract management to undertake a deep dive into surreptitious means that might have occurred and, sure enough, they found hacking software on a "gifted" Lenovo laptop to one of the purchasing managers. It then caused an even deeper dive which resulted in several hacked software entry points within existing HW networks.
This is not unlike the egregious deep dive by HW to successfuly hack 800 files, largely focused upon optical networking ... that drove Nortel toward BK starting in 2009. Since HW had a view into Nortel to determine who were the brainiacs, HW had the nerve to make lucrative offers to their top 20 brains ... and they jumped.
I wonder MA ... whether RBBN is indirectly impacted by HW tapping market share from telco majors. So much for international rule enforcement within the WTO. Al;l the best.
