Interview: ZTE proposes third-party validation to relieve security concerns


08:15, October 11, 2012


WASHINGTON, Oct. 10 (Xinhua) -- Chinese telecom company ZTE has proposed third-party validation to relieve national security concerns, says a ZTE executive.

"We will partner with an independent third party, a kind of laboratory, to validate ZTE's products including hardware and software," Dai Shu, vice director of ZTE's Corporate Branding and Communication Department, told Xinhua on Tuesday.

"This independent third party or laboratory will be under the oversight of the U.S. government," he added.

The U.S. House Intelligence Committee released a report on Monday claiming that ZTE and Huawei, another China-based telecommunications company, pose a threat to U.S. national security by providing equipment and services to U.S. critical infrastructure.

The solution ZTE has proposed is also known as Trusted Delivery Model, which is also mentioned in the hearing held in September in front of the committee.

But the House report dismissed the effort and still recommended that U.S. government computer systems and private companies exclude any equipment from the two firms.

It also urged the Committee on Foreign Investments in the United States to block acquisitions, takeovers, or mergers involving the two companies. But the 52-page report failed to give concrete evidence.

"We feel disappointed, because the committee ignored ZTE's efforts regarding how to solve the issue. ZTE could have provided a very affordable network in the United States without any threat to national security," said Dai.
