Cisco (CSCO) considers Huawei Technologies a tough competitor, as do many other networking giants (I, II), and an in-depth Globe and Mail piece helps explain why. The rapidly growing Chinese upstart sells everything from consumer tablets to high-end routers; will drastically undercut Western firms to win major telecom deals; and employs 46% of its 120K employees in R&D.

    In China they call it "R&D".

     

    When said "R&D" takes place in China, it's what we in the West refer to as "Theft", "Corporate & Cyber Espionage", "Copyright, Patent and Trademark Infringement".

    Well we can say what we'd like about IP theft - and its rampant in China and Russia and most emerging markets.

     

    But let also point out that Chinese firms are preparing for the long haul.... American multi-nationals fire 10% of R&D to meet next quarters .27 earnings. Meanwhile Chinese firms build for the future!

     

    And we wonder where the jobs are at?
