Wireless Contract for Chinese

At least one small nation in the South Pacific isn’t too worried about China’s Huawei Technologies Co. posing a national security risk, writes Fox Business. New Zealand’s biggest telephone company, Telecom Corp. of New Zealand (TEL.NZ), has awarded Huawei a contract to build its new nationwide wireless network –and the government barely raised an eyebrow. Telecom’s chief technology officer David Havercroft said Huawei’s selection was based on two main factors. “The first is that they have extensive experience, the second is that they are truly pushing the boundaries of Long Term Evolution (LTE),” Havercroft said. Huawei has sold 73 of its LTE networks in 42 countries, including Germany, Norway and Hong Kong.”
