A large number of optical networks across the globe are now Huawei,
we are using their IP CPE (17xx/26xx/36xx/72xx replacements) in a number
of products and these devices have stood up to significant security
testing [including DDOS]. We have also type approved their Long Distance
Optical platforms and DSLAMS and they work and work well. Also tested
some ZTE equipment and it works well also. I hoping that Huawei do 
more in storage.

Regards,
Neil.
