"The opening of this facility represents another major step in Huawei' s growth in North America," said Carl Liu, president of Canada, Huawei. "Our ability to innovate and develop solutions for customers depends on adding the right people, and Ottawa has long been a nurturing ground for some of the world's brightest minds in telecommunications."

Located in Kanata, the region offers a world-class information technology community with access to renowned academic and national research institutions as well as a wealth of highly experienced technology professionals. The Ottawa R&D center is working on multiple, strategic product initiatives in the wireline, wireless, optical, and IP networking areas. To date, the R&D Centre has more than 70 company employees.

"We are thrilled that Ottawa has been recognized by Huawei as the ideal place to focus its Canadian R&D efforts," said Larry O' Brien, Mayor of the City of Ottawa. "It was my pleasure to meet with executives last week at Huawei's very impressive world-wide headquarters in Shenzhen, where we spoke in detail about plans for the Kanata facility. Huawei is a remarkable telecommunications success story that will be able to leverage Ottawa's R&D talent globally. Huawei is a welcomed new member of Ottawa's knowledge-based economy."

Huawei has enjoyed tremendous success in Canada since it opened its first office in the spring of 2008. Huawei provides industry-leading telecom solutions to Bell Canada, TELUS and SaskTel in Canada.
