This is not the first time that Huawei is using ASICs. In fact it had used ASICs for their backplane ( and perhaps other hw) in their teleocm fibreoptic equipment - way back in early 2000s. At that time, its design team (later spun out as HiSilicon) implemented ASICs with the help of various ASIC vendors - Meenu

A Huawei contact told me the company--like its rival Cisco--has been using ASICs for some time, many designed, I suspect, by its giant HiSilicon division.
