LONDON (Dow Jones)--Global telecoms equipment maker Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. expects revenue from its enterprise division to increase eightfold over the next three to five years as it takes advantage of new growth opportunities emerging from cloud computing, a senior company executive told Dow Jones Newswires.
In a departure from its main focus on network infrastructure, the Chinese company said it is reorganising its business around four major areas - network infrastructure, enterprise business, devices, and other. Enterprise sales are expected to double to $4 billion in 2011 and hit $15 billion in three to five years, said William Xu, executive vice president of Huawei and president of Huawei Enterprise Business.
