Huawei Technologies is one of the world's fastest growing telecom-hardware makers, and yet much of the company is shrouded in secrecy. Fortunately, thanks to BBC reporter Nick Mackie who was allowed a rare glimpse inside the inner-workings of Huawei, we now know a little more about China's enigmatic tech giant.


Based in Shenzhen, southern China, Huawei's telecom systems currently connect one third of the world's mobile phones, and the company employs a global staff of 110,000 workers -- more than Microsoft or Cisco.


At first glance, the casually-dressed employees walking around on Huawei's corporate campus at lunchtime appears to be a scene more commonly found in Silicon Valley. "It's a very young company, it's less than 20 years old," Ross Gan, global head of Huawei Technologies' corporate communications, told the BBC. "Our workforce is also very young -- the average age is 29 -- so there's a very dynamic environment within the company."


In 2010, Huawei's revenue was $28 billion and according to Gan, the company expects to grow to over $100 billion in annual revenue within ten years. In comparison, Apple is expected to surpass $100 billion in annual revenue for the first time this year. Microsoft's annual revenue in 2010 was over $62 billion.

2010年华为的收入是280亿美元,甘罗斯预计公司十年内每年收入增加到超过1000亿美元的。相比之下,苹果今年的第一次每年收入将超过1000亿美元。 2010年微软年收入超过620亿美元。

Huawei's booming growth is representational of Asia's increasing stronghold on the manufacturing industry, and more specifically the consumer side of selling mobile devices. In the first quarter of 2011, Huawei sold 7 million mobile devices and expects to ship 60 million mobile phones (20 million of which will likely be Android smartphones) by the end of this year. Apple sold 20 million iPhones in the most recent quarter.


While many Americans probably haven't heard of Huawei yet, the brand may soon become a household name in the states. Victor Xu, chief marketing officer for Huawei's device business, told The Wall Street Journal that Huawei is considering a multi-million dollar marketing budget in the U.S. for next year.


Despite Huawei's impressive growth, many U.S. lawmakers are concerned about the company's alleged close ties with China's military, notes
ZDNet. In the wake of recent cyber attacks on the International Monetary Fund, which investigators now believe was a China-based attack, according to Bloomberg, officials want to be certain that Huawei's technology isn't behind hacking threats

“We believe that the misconceptions stem from media and political parties,” Dr Song Liuping, Huawei’s chief legal officer, told the Telegraph. “Huawei is taking an open and transparent attitude to address the concerns of the US government. In fact, we have been making all efforts to address their concerns and questions.”

I kept looking at those yougn, brillian, and hopeful faces in this video and could not stop wondering, "that was exactly how we Americans felt about ourselves, with emphasis on science and solid hard work, only 30 or 40 years ago. And what has happened 40 years ago, what is the turning point, that turned we Americans into a group of whining sissy who do not even realize we are nothing but a group of "consumer oriented" whining sissy?"
What happened to this once great country? What force (maybe ourselves is the only force?) was at play that turned this country to this state of pathetic existence?

The only way to prevent cash loaded Chinese companies from buying US tech companies is by always accusing them as proxies of Chinese government and its military.

I think some of my fellow HuffPo's miss the real point of this story.
Yes ALL companies employ some security. From something as simple as a passord to get into a mom and pop's Quickbooks at the corner market to the security details many of you described.
What makes this company a threat is that it is ABSOLUTELY part of the Chinese military. AND we "smart" Americans handed them the technology and the factories while doing nothing to protect our mostly tax payer funded developmen­t of those technologi­es. Talk about a transfer of wealth!
I don't blame the Chinese at all btw. They are doing what they percieve to be in their economys best interest. I just wish we had a few people in Washington who were as concerned about ours.

Yes, our nations finest seem very intent on giving away just about all of the few advantages the US has left..... fries with that burger?

We are done with!
We just have a bunch of teabaggers who are preventing Uncle Sam from increasing the debt ceiling to keep up with the competitio­n.

Isn't it time to pay a little more and keep our American inventions out of the hands of the Chinese, who copy them and resale them? Haven't the US taxpayers paid enough to subsidies or give tax benefits to companies, who take their profits to invest in manufactur­ing plants in China, India, etc. or buy parts from China that are copies of products made in the USA? What do we do to bring the manufactur­ing back to the USA? Is it true that now GE is building and Nuclear Plant in China - thats another story, but isn't China
a bigger concern than Iran? Sorry too many questions.

Intel, IBM, HP, BOEING, APPLE, Federal Reserve,Co­ca-Cola --- no one is allowed to view places in their companies, where their company secrets are discussed or used.

因特尔、IBM、HP、波音、苹果,联邦储备委员会、可口可乐­- - - - - -他们的公司不允许别人来观摩他们的地方,在那里他们的公司讨论和应用公司的秘密。

"A Visit To Huawei, China's SECRETIVE Tech Giant ....and yet much of the company is shrouded in SECRECY" [emphasis added].
Day in, day out, I love all these headlines and leading sentences that portray China or anything Chinese as secretive, diabolical­, sinister, demonic, untrustwor­thy, quarrelsom­e, aggressive­, etc.
If you visit Cisco, Microsoft, IBM, Alcatel-Lu­cent, or any of the high-tech companies, they will openly and freely give you a tour and presentati­on of all their design, manufactur­ing, testing, marketing and sales department­s, facilities­, strategies and techniques­!
Only a Chinese high-tech company is "shrouded in secrecy"! These inscrutabl­e Chinese! They are so unlike us! How can we ever get along with them? How can anyone expect us to ever treat them as equals, human beings?



只有一个中国高新技术公司是“秘密的”!这是神奇的中国! 他们也不像我们!

One of my kids works at a unit of Microsoft. There is a receptioni­st in the lobby you have to register with and then he calls ahead to see if the party you want to see is available. Then your party comes out to greet you. Only then can you enter the premises accompanie­d by who you're visiting. I'm sure that's how all high tech firms work. Its not any sort of cloak and dagger scenario its just business as usual. Here. In China its all so secretive.

I had worked for almost 15 years in the leading computer company in the US. We had a 'clean-des­k policy' where not a scrap of business correspond­ence, note, memo, even manuals, etc must be left out on your desk when you leave the office; everything had to be locked away in your credenza.
Periodical­ly, the security officers conduct SURPRISE sweeps of all the work desks late at night, including looking into your waste basket beside your desk. Anything that is not shredded and has a legible name of a business person, customer, product info, etc was a security infringeme­nt. You and everyone else would know you had violated the company's security because of the BIG RED STICKER over your desk when you arrived for work next morning! You were then hauled into your manager's office to please explain. Three strikes and YOU ARE OUT!
And there were many, many security procedures­. We do it - it's security. If the Chinese do it - it's SECRECY! The subtle drip, drip, drip continues.
That American high-tech companies have several very individual­istic and iconic personalit­ies, like Bill Gates, John Chambers, Lou Gerstner, etc and no equivalent high-profi­le personalit­ies in the Chinese world does not help. But that doesn't mean they are secretive. By nature, they are more group-orie­nted than individual­istic; they are more accustomed to being "the wind beneath the wings", the ones that “never see sunlight on their faces”, but that doesn't make them or their companies more ‘secretive­’!

It's really feeling like a matter of when these tech companies overtake American tech companies, not a matter of if.
