Bolstered by the success of similar efforts in Australia and New Zealand, the White House sent envoys to European capitals with warnings that Huawei's gear would open a backdoor for Chinese spies.

Honestly, most companies are understandably most likely taking a wait and see approach to the tech. A new patent application spotted by Patently Mobile l...
