So long as China has a Communist government, these concerns will remain justified.

Is there a way to avoid wiretapping?

This is not really surprising. When India is concerned about the security issues in using the Huawei telecom equipment no wonder US government backed NSA will definitely have concerns. But I still wonder isn't it possible to verify the security of the telecom vendor equipment? Huge businees for Huwaei will be hampered if the AT&T and Sprint decide not to buy any equipment.

I guess in case of India, the telecom equipment is not meant for government of India's usage as is the case with US. Also there are strict terms and conditions on knowledge transfer.

The Chinese government can subsidize Huawei's entry into the US with the payback of the trapdoors, which can be included in any new software release. I'm with NSA - FIND A US SUPPLIER, AT&T

I would be surprised if NSA accepted non-US suppliers to be honest.

This is a stupid decision and NSA appears having no confidence on their own surveillance capability. Let's face it, Huawei and ZTE just provide better technology than that of E/// and ALU with a much better price. Why do they have to press AT&T to buy more expensive and worse equipment? On the other hand, BT 2000CN and 3's Mobile Broadband are using Huawei's equipments. I haven't heard MI6 had complained it. As long as Huawei's equipments are separated from NSA's traffic, why shouldn't AT&T buy them? The threat to national security nowadays is not from the communist China, it is from Al Qaeda. Will Huawei's equipment hinder NSA eavesdrop Al Qaeda? I rather encourage NSA to buy more equipments from Huawei or ZTE with the same budget. China is after us by their economical means and we are still stuck on idealogical difference.

Do you really believe NSA would allow Huawei to take over AT&T? - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AT%26T (Read "Privacy Controversy") - http://cryptome.org/klein-decl.htm

When it's a govt order they have the say and it's not only economics government has to be worried about. And, pooh poohing by engineers won't make political issues vanish.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
