That was exact statement from the DoD, prior to them finding out they had a bunch of Chinese fake gear with real back 
doors built in. I can appreciate a difference of opinion, but anyone would installs the PRC's cellular solution is a 
fool. Never mind security, they just simply don't work. There are several of those Chinese network equipment 
manufacturers.. Tegra comes to mind too..

As a footnote, the Iranian government would have thought you were bat shit crazy if you told them there was a secret 
set of programs running on their centrifuge SCADA network, which was completely true. You don't need to relay data out 
to cause harm or watch over something, you simply have to visit more. ;)

Scary....

Why?

Do you think Huawei has a magic ability to transmit data without you noticing?

If you don't want to use Hauwei because they stole code or did other nasty things, I'm right there with you. If you 
believe a router can somehow magically duplicate info and transport it back to China (ignoring CT/CU's inability to 
have congestion free links), I think you are confused.
