Huawei: 2014 Sales Expected to Hit US46 Billion, up 15%

Huawei's 2014 sales revenue were expected to reach US$46 billion in 2014, an increase of over 15% year-on-year, according to a New Year message posted by Ken Hu, Huawei's Rotating CEO.

A key area of progress over the past year has been the consolidation of the company's SoftCOM telecom network architecture, deeply integrating the concepts of cloud computing, Software-defined Networking (SDN), and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). Hu said these solutions "will reshape the telecom industry in four areas: services, operations, network functions, and network architecture. We have helped carriers with their comprehensive businesses transformation and network evolution."  Hu also highlighted the company's Service-driven Distributed Cloud Data Center solution; its OceanStor converged storage system, its IoT-oriented agile gateway; and its agile data center networking and agile branch solutions.

Looking forward to 2015, Hu discusses on-going structural changes inside the company along with efforts to "glocalize" operations in the 170 countries and regions in which Huawei operates.
