Huawei Acquires Photonics R&D Lab in the UK

Huawei has acquired the Centre for Integrated Photonics Ltd (CIP), a photonics research laboratory, from the East of England Development Agency (EEDA). Financial terms were not disclosed.

CIP, which is based in Ipswich, specialises in hybrid integration, combining materially different components on a single platform to create innovative photonic devices.

CIP will form the core of the new Huawei UK R&D centre, part of Huawei’s global R&D network.

"As a world-leading ICT solutions provider, Huawei aims to build up its business in global markets and will continue to increase investment in the UK, reaffirming its commitment to customers, suppliers and business partners,’’ said Victor Zhang, CEO of Huawei UK. “Currently, Huawei has six research facilities in Europe. I’m confident that CIP’s strong research abilities and its talented staff will further extend our European research presence to the UK, a key and important market to the company."http://www.huawei.com
