I have been working on assessing a few leading network equipment vendors in the likes of Cisco, HP, Juniper, etc., to procure Layer 2 switches. I am currently assessing the capabilities of Huawei and i have been hearing about a litigation raised by Nortel (Avaya) against Huawei on their Layer 2 switches, however, I have not been able to find any solid evidence of the same in the public domain. I was wondering if you can offer your thoughts on this. My objective here is to understand what will be the risks/implication for me as a buyer to engage with Huawei because of this.

    I would be far less concerned about litigation than I would be about general allegations against Huawei. If Huawei was included in any specs that I was preparing, I would also include at least one other vendor as an alternative. And I would include an appendix with a representative collection of references to warnings that have been made and to restrictions that have been placed by some government agencies concerning Huawei, as well as a couple of the more reliable statements made by private parties. (Your choice on determining reliability.) Anyone responsible for approving the specs needs full disclosure, especially when this type of infrastructure is involved. -- Tom.
