THAT CUTS NO ICE WITH U.S. LAWMAKERS, who have repeatedly intervened to stymie Huawei: 

This is a rare economic issue- that enjoys almost total bipartisan support in Congress.

''Given the number of cyber attacks which have occurred in the past, the U.S. government must take every precaution in protecting their networks,'' says : 

Senator Saxby Chambliss, the top Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee.

In 2011, Huawei was pressured by U.S. officials to unwind a $2 million acquisition of assets from insolvent server technology firm 3LeafSystems after it had already completed the deal.

As far back as  2007-08, Huawei backed out of an attempt to acquire U.S. network equipment outfit 3Com with Bain Capital after the proposal faced resistance from Washington.

Ruppersberger says he met with Huawei's founder in May, 2012 and confronted him.''I basically said, 
'Look I know we are in a global economy, but the bottom line is you need to tell your country-

To stop cyberattacking our businesses because, if not, it's our obligation to protect United States citizens from these thefts.'''

Ruppersberger says Ren denied any link between his company and the Chinese government.

*Huawei executives argue that spying on customers would be corporate suicide*.

''It would be immensely foolish for Huawei to risk involvement in national security or economic espionage,'' Charles Ding, a senior vice president at the company, told the the House committee during hearings in 2012.

*Other Huawei officials suggest that security jitters are a cover for old fashioned protectionism*.

''Security is not the real issue.'' says Rajiv Weimin Yao, a Huawei vice president based in Gurgaon, near New Delhi. Huawei says its competitors benefit from steps to block its progress.

''You can't help looking at the U.S.  [security concerns]  with jaded eyes,'' says Eric Harwit, a professor of Asian studies at the University of Hawaii and the author of   *China's Telecommunications Revolution*.

U.S. politicians, he says,  ''are just protecting their own companies.''

Huawei points out that it manufacturers equipment in the same way most major technology firms do, with parts collected from all over the world, including the U.S.

For some of its production, Huawei outsources the the assembly to other companies like Taiwan's  Foxconn, which also makes Apple's  iPhones.

But it isn't just the U.S. that is worried about Huawei's intentions.

In 2012, the Australian government prohibited the company from bidding to supply equipment for a national broadband network.

In the U.K., a parliamentary committee went on to investigate the security implications of British Telecom's use of Huawei equipment

Canada, too, has expressed concerns about the company's gear.

Huawei has made efforts to ease the concerns of foreign governments.In New Delhi, the company says, it agreed to share sensitive technology with the Indian government.
