IT World Canada - Huawei aims to be 'cloud integrator' with Canadian HQ

(18-Jan-11) Chinese telecom giant Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. officially opened a Canadian headquarters on Tuesday, which it said will help achieve its goal to become a stronger cloud services integrator for its Canadian partners.

The new Markham, Ont., facility will house the company’s sales and marketing teams, in addition to a “state-of-the-art” testing lab. The headquarters launch comes just one day after the networking company signed a deal with both Bell Canada Enterprises Inc. and Telus Corp. to build and maintain a Joint Innovation Centre in a location to be determined later.

Huawei said that both announcements further show its commitment to becoming a bigger player in Canada, a mission that started with last April when the company opened its first Canadian research and development plant in Ottawa. The firm said it currently has 250 employees in Ottawa and Markham, with a pledge to invest $67 million in Canadian R&D over the next five years.
