Huawei gearing up for North American expansion

Chinese equipment vendor Huawei has its eyes on the North American market where it plans to make a splash within the next five years. Following its success conquering China, Europe and some emerging markets, Huawei's five-year strategy now includes a push into the North American space following a pattern of "convergence, broadband, green and evolution," according to Shao Yang, vice president of marketing.

According to Yang, Huawei's customer list includes 70 percent of the top 50 telecom providers worldwide, including an infrastructure contract it inked with Leap Wireless in 2006.

Yang said that besides technology, Huawei brings an open ear to the market. "We have a strong will to listen to (clients to) help them achieve what they demand," he said.
