Hikvision To FCC: "IPVM Misrepresents", Removes 4G References

By Conor Healy, Published May 31, 2022, 09:17am EDT (Info+)

Hikvision's attorneys filed a letter with the FCC protesting IPVM's March 2022 reporting on Hikvision's 4G marketing. However, Hikvision also removed numerous "4G" references from its marketing after IPVM's reporting.
