Huawei and ZTE may lose out on the India 4G Market

If this report is true and made official, then the Indian government will ban 25 Chinese firms and one Israeli firm from doing business in India. This includes Huawei and ZTE. This is happening just as the 4G market is about to explode in India, with service providers with new spectrum planning WiMAX, LTE, and potential transitions from WiMAX TDD to LTE TDD. Major mobile infrastructure companies such as Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson, Huawei, Motorola, NEC, Nokia Siemens Networks, Samsung, and ZTE are expected to fiercely compete for business in India, as are other very important smaller 4G companies such as Alvarion, Aviat, and many others.

Supposedly, security agencies in India were able to prove that Chinese companies' equipment and software had "black boxes, malware, trap doors, remote or hidden attack facilities through computerised command and control, rendering Indian telecom networks vulnerable.” So if this report is true, this will be bad news for Huawei and ZTE since they will lose out on a very important growth market. And this would be very positive news for all the other companies looking to sell 4G mobile network equipment in India.
