Re: Failiure of competition

Cisco have a big (but dwindling revenues) cash bank have had been vigorously lobbying against Huawei for years through the US government. Their arrogance is awful and Cisco appear to have this notion that they simply do not understand why anyone would ever consider buying anything else "It's Cisco, it's expensive so it must be good" is pushed everywhere. It is irrelevant if there are better technologies from other brands, often are lower cost. Everything Cisco touches comes with a huge price tag and even more eye watering support costs.

I don't know if Huawei have back doors in for the Chinese but equally you can have no confidence that any Western companies don't for their own governments.
