Huawei eyes 20 percent share in Indian enterprise mart

“Globally our revenues last year exceeded US$29 billion. We’ve had strong growth coming into this year and we would like to sustain that momentum,” Huawei India Director for Marketing & Strategy Sethumadhavan Srinivasan said.

“Our expansion into enterprise segment is one way of sustaining this momentum. In India, we would like to capture 20 per cent market share in next five years,” Srinivasan said.  The company has moved on from issues it had with Indian government last year, following regulation by the latter to restrict import of telecom equipment due to security concerns.

“That was affecting all multi-national suppliers and wasn’t unique to Huawei,” Srinivasan insisted. Srinivasan said the company would like to leverage datacentre and operations to provide reliable managed services for telecom sector, empowering telcos to offer services that would live upto the more demanding service level agreements in the enterprise segment.

As for cloud, Srinivasan said Huawei would pursue unified cloud strategy in India, which would blend “enterprise and service clouds offering service agility.”

A ‘Voice and Data’ survey had put Huawei in the third position last year behind Nokia Siemens and Swedish  firm Ericsson in the telecom equipment market. The overall growth in telecom sector in many of the developing market has provided Huawei and the other Chinese company ZTE Corp the best opportunity to transform themselves into major players in the telecom market, which they made the most of in the last few years.
