key factors driving Huawei's success in the contact center market are its continual leadership position in the Chinese telecom sector and its progressive business expansion into other Asian countries (& regions), such as India, the Philippines, Laos, and Hong Kong, said Shivanu Shukla, Associate Director of ICT Practice, Frost & Sullivan (Asia Pacific). Amongst all the nominees for this award, Huawei demonstrated strong business acumen and growth in the market, and the final jury unanimously decided to give the award to Huawei as a result.
According to Frost & Sullivan's latest research, Huawei has become one of Asia Pacific's emerging contact center total solutions providers. Despite an overall decline in the contact center application market across the region in 2009, Huawei still managed to maintain strong growth in this segment, growing 26.2 percent year on year in Asia Pacific.
