Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. is a Chinese multinational technology company that develops, manufactures, and markets telecommunications equipment and consumer electronics. It has three core business segments: Carrier Network, Enterprise, and Consumer.
It is currently the world's largest telecom equipment manufacturer and the world's largest manufacturer of smartphones.


Founded in 1987, Huawei resold private branch exchange (PBX) switches imported from Hong Kong during its first years, while seeking to reverse engineer these switches. The company also invested heavily in R&D to develop its own technologies.
As China adopted the policy of supporting domestic telecom manufacturers and restricting access to foreign competitors, Huawei took the opportunity to grow domestically with reduced competition.
Internationally, it partnered with a number of telecom companies across the world for R&D and/or market expansion. It has enjoyed continued growth as China's economy grew.
