Huawei partner tried to sell embargoed tech to Iran

1.3 million euro deal

An Iranian partner of Huawei reportedly offered to sell Iran’s leading mobile phone operator 1.3 million euros worth of embargoed HP gear.

The offer, made in late 2010, came to light through a “billing document” which involved the Iranian partner. Of course, €1.3 million will not buy you a ton of gear in this day and age. It seems the offer included some embargoed tech, such as HP servers, disk arrays and switches. The gear should have been used to expand the billing system used by Mobile Telecommunications Co of Iran, or MCI.

Back in October, Reuters also reported that another Huawei partner tried to sell embargoed American antenna equipment to Iran’s second biggest mobile operator, MTN Irancell. The deal was eventually rejected by MTN Irancell.
