In Huawei's carrier business, H1 sales revenue reached USD $21.29 billion, showing the steady growth in production and shipment of equipment for wireless networks, optical transmission, data communications, IT, and related product domains. So far Huawei has secured 50 commercial 5G contracts and has shipped more than 150,000 base stations to markets around the world as it was also reported earlier.
In Huawei's enterprise business, H1 sales revenue was USD $4.59 billion showing that Huawei continues to enhance its ICT portfolio across multiple domains, including cloud, artificial intelligence, campus networks, data centers, Internet of Things, and intelligent computing despite the recent temporary bans.
Liang Hua, Huawei's Chairman, said;
Revenue grew fast up through May. Given the foundation we laid in the first half of the year, we continue to see growth even after we were added to the entity list. That's not to say we don't have difficulties ahead. We do, and they may affect the pace of our growth in the short term."
But we will stay the course. We are fully confident in what the future holds, and we will continue investing as planned – including a total of USD $17.44 billion in R&D this year. We'll get through these challenges, and we're confident that Huawei will enter a new stage of growth after the worst of this is behind us.
