Re: HUAWEI in Canada. And right beside (900ft!) the USA border.
This is a pretty slippery slope for Huawei. Do they ship routers out with "back doors" pre-installed? I highly doubt it because they would not risk shipping routers with a special firmware to just anyone who might be able to find their "back door" by reverse engineering.
Don't think for a second that Cisco (and others) hasn't hacked the hell out Huawei products looking for such a back door. The discovery of such a back door could be devastating to Huawei because no one would touch their products if such a hole was found.
Is it possible for Huawei to cooperate with the Chinese government? Sure but you won't find any Huawei gear installed any place where they could really make use of such special firmwares.
I do not, have not, and will not work for AT&T/Comcast/Verizon/Charter or similar sized company.
