Chinese telecom major Huawei Telecommunications (India) Ltd on Monday unveiled the latest series of gigabit switches and routers-S5700 supports Smart Ethernet Protection (SEP) protocol for Indian enterprises.
Eric Yu, president, Huawei Enterprise, said: "India is an important market for Huawei and we see a huge potential here. We are looking at garnering 10 per cent of market share in India by 2015. With a lot of traction in segments like Government, Power, Transportation, Finance etc. we are looking at sizable growth coming from the Indian market in the coming months. And in order to achieve this growth, we would be enabling the enterprise community with specific solutions on cloud computing, unified communications, smart city implementation and data center solutions."
Expanding its Indian subsidiary operations from software product development to hardware products for providing end to end ICT solutions, the $39 billion global telecom behemoth has hived off its enterprise product business to compete with other leading OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) like Cisco and Polycom in the burgeoning domestic market.
“We have no issue with the Indian government and are considered an L1 vendor,” said Ahluwalia.
