Huawei Technologies has overtaken Alcatel-Lucent in the global optical networking equipment market.

Additionally, it is ranked second in global market share of radio access equipment and holds the same position in terms of global patent applications across all industries, having submitted more than 18,000 standards proposals and filed a total of 42,543 patent applications.

Much of the company’s focus in the months ahead will be on LTE and mobile broadband: Huawei holds 34 percent of the world’s LTE essential patents, with more than 2500 research and development staff focused on it. Huawei has nine commercial contracts for LTE networks, and this is set to increase as more operators confirm LTE commitments in 2010-11.
