Things aren't as bad as Cisco portrays, according to Huawei.
"Such comments are unfortunate," says William Plummer, vice president of external affairs for Huawei. "Huawei has great respect for Cisco and, like Cisco, Huawei has earned trust and respect in the over 140 markets in which we do business, supporting over 500 telecommunications operators and connecting almost one-third of the world's population. Huawei also takes pride in having developed and deployed fresh and future-oriented channel programs, which, contrary to suggestions otherwise, have been met with sighs of welcome relief from partners who have been starving for alternatives to the dated models and solutions of the past.”
