Despite the fact it cast doing telco business in the United States to the wind, Huawei released details of its five-year business strategy in the enterprise domain, focusing on enterprise ICT. Comments William Xu, CEO at Huawei Enterprise Business Group, "With the industry’s most comprehensive product line and Huawei’s ongoing strategic investment in the enterprise domain, we expect Huawei Enterprise’s sales revenue to reach $2.7 billion in 2013, achieving a sales revenue target of $10 billion by 2017." Earlier today, the company unveiled its next-gen photonic integrated device (PID) solution for metro networks that uses advanced modulation formats and digital signal processing (DSP) technology to provide transmission to 400 Gbit/s and higher. Using the new PID, Huawei developed a smart line card for its Hybrid MSTP products that supports native and unified transport of Ethernet, ATM and TDM over one port. The Chinese giant continues to focus on its U.S. MSO business, with one company spokesman saying the company “remains committed” and is still “engaging and will continue to engage major cable operators with new products and solutions.” U.S. clients include Comcast, Suddenlink and BendBroadband.
