Hopefully they're more above board than their auspicious start in routers. http://www.theregister.co.uk/2003/10/01/cisco_halts_huawei_piracy_suit/ http://www.theregister.co.uk/2003/01/24/cisco_sues_huawei_over_ip/ "Amongst other claims, San Jose, California-based Cisco said portions of its IOS source code found its way into Huawei's operating system for its Quidway routers and switches. Cisco claimed the Huawei OS included text strings, files names and bugs that were identical with Cisco's IOS source code. The suit alleges that Huawei is infringing at least five Cisco patents."

Huawei has been growing quickly on a global basis based on sound management, good products, and wise strategic decisions. Many already feel they are destined to be the global leader in the communications field very soon. Their patent portfolio continues to expand and as shown by their quick IP "counter-attack" responses to Apple's infringement allegations, they are lot afraid to take on the big guys in the various product areas.

Huawei surely has to ambition to become the leader in telecom industry. Owning the core technology in chips is a must-go direction. I believe some days later, people will see large growth of Huawei's IC organization.
