Cisco kills years old relationship w/ ZTE after Cisco 'discovers' ZTE has been selling massive amounts of Cisco hardware to Iran in violation of the US Embargo.
said by Reuters :
Cisco Systems Inc. has ended a longstanding sales partnership with ZTE Corp after an internal investigation into allegations that the Chinese telecommunications equipment maker sold Cisco networking gear to Iran.
Cisco's probe followed stories by Reuters in March and April that documented how Shenzhen, China-based ZTE had sold banned computer equipment from Cisco and other U.S. companies to Iran's largest telecom firm.
So Cisco had no idea at all
that loads of it's equipment was winding up in Iran; until Reuters began looking into it.
In 7 years no one from Iran made a tech support call to Cisco?
