Huawei has revised sales estimates for its wireless networking business downward after reassessing its chances in the U.S. market. Huawei had hoped U.S. network operators, such as Sprint, would purchase its networking equipment and boost its presence here. The company met with resistance from members of the U.S. government, which cast suspicion on the company's ties to the Chinese government. Huawei has steadfastly denied such claims. However, it has not been able to gain the traction it wanted with U.S. companies. "We are not interested in the U.S. market anymore. Generally speaking, it's not a market that we pay much attention to," said executive VP Eric Xu. Huawei still sells cell phones though U.S. network operators.

When you refuse to do anything other than CDMA and only put goods out on Cricket for the majority of your products, you wonder why you go nowhere.

This should't surprise anyone.

Huawei, partially owned and largely controlled by the Communist Chinese government, stole significant IP from US-based companies and used it for the basis of a product portfolio that undercuts their western rivals, then got pinched, and now decides they won't "bother" with the US wireless infrastructure market. 😕

Whether the US gov't cast a suspicious eye towards them regarding the security of their products or not, the bigger issue is blatant patent infringement.

Also, there are few large wireline carriers that have tested the waters with Huawei's Ethernet and DWDM switching gear, and found them substandard.

Sometimes, you get what you pay for.
Who would have thought Huawei equipment substandard.
