Motorola Argues To FCC: Dahua, Hikvision, and Hytera "Desperate" and "Meritless"

By Conor Healy, Published Mar 28, 2022, 10:49am EDT (Info+)

Motorola condemned Dahua, Hikvision, and Hytera over "meritless" arguments to the FCC, branding them as "desperate to avoid the impact of the FCC's proposed rules." Motorola's letter argued why they cannot be legally removed from the covered list, and called for more disclosure of ties to the banned entities.
