“I look forward to building and leading a team of industry and partner experts to ensure that Huawei rapidly becomes a significant contributor to the enterprise market. We will be delivering an unmatched and incredibly broad set of solutions including routing and switching, IP telephony, call centre technology, video telephony, telepresence solutions, servers and storage, tablets and smart phones plus many more innovative solutions.”
