Chinese hardware maker Huawei has had a stateside presence for years but will begin make that presence known to Cisco this year. The company has plans to take on Cisco’s stronghold in the enterprise hardware field, John Roese, head of research and development, told Reuters. The company has struggled to gain ground in the US because public officials have concerns about its CEO, Ren Zhengfei, a former Chinese military officer. [Source: Reuters]
