The interesting part of this is the use of whistleblower law to raise cybersecurity issues.

I wonder if Cisco engineers its own surveillance equipment or just imports & rebrands someone else's.

Cisco shouldn't have to pay anything. The government wanted them to add backdoors and so they did.
They got what every competent security expert said they'd get.
