Huawei Technologies, China's
largest telecoms supplier, will launch its flagship products in the US next year as it ramps
up its overseas expansion plan.
The company is seeking a US partner to distribute
its products and predicting it will achieve an 81 percent jump in overseas sales to US$1
billion this year
Huawei provides equipment to Russia, Thailand and Latin America
and also operates a joint venture with Germany's Siemens developing China's home-
grown third generation telecom standard, TD-SCDMA.
The overseas expansion
comes soon after Huawei and Cisco Systems agreed to suspend a patent lawsuit for six
months. Cisco, the largest router and switch maker in the US, accused Huawei of copying
its intellectual property and infringing on several patents.
