    Trump v Huawei


    0 Not allowed!
    So an interesting twist to the debate about the security of involving Huawei in our telecoms infrastructure. My gut feeling is that the security expert advice was to keep them away from it but some politicians have an eye on sacrificing security for trade!! No fan of Trump but his meeting with May will be interesting. Wouldn't mind being fly on the wall in that one, probably alongside the chinese miniaturised robotic fly!!!

      Huawei is already in our telecoms infrastructure. this is about allowing telecoms companies to chose primary hardware provider for 5G over others, not so good but American.

      And it would have cost you nearly twice that to use Cisco !

      Only an idiot would listen to Trump & co. Huawei is great kit and you get a lot of bang for your buck. Their support is fantastic - I worked for a reseller of both Cisco and Huawei and we found bugs in both of their code. Cisco - wait over three months for a fix, Huawei had us fixed code in three days and written from scratch. I've put loads of it in to some very well known companies and public bodies such as unis. It's all a fuss about nothing. And as the standard security advice goes - just don't use the same manufactuers devices in your core as your firewalls - problem fixed.

      That's beside the point. It matters not that they are capable of providing a good service. What matters is whether the Chinese government choose to make them spy on everything.

      If Huawei were to deliberately send data elsewhere, through in-built back doors, how would a separate firewall help?
      Thank you Chris, you're a legend.
