Unintended consequences (Iran)

Once again the US Administration's Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA) has caught another vendor; not in the USA but in Iran. Chinese-vendor Huawei Technologies said last week it had sold mobile network equipment to MTN Irancell; it issued a statement after the US-owned Bloomberg and WSJ news channels published references to the monitoring of dissidents by the Iranian government. Previously it was NSN that found itself in the dock, also because of deployments in Iran, and also thanks to the provisions of CALEA.
