JEFF J. BROWN—Huawei’s corporate culture is all about collaboration and win-win. Furthermore, it can afford to be magnanimous, since it is reaping the benefits of spending 10-15% of its revenues on R&D. Incredibly, 53% of its employees work in research and development, 30% of those in basic research and the balance in applied, customer-centric fields. As a result of a generation of hard work and devotion to this vision, Huawei today has over 100,000 active patents in 40,000 different patent families across the globe, and is continuing to outpace its nearest competitor, Samsung, by 2-to-1 in new applications.
I ask you,
Is it any wonder that Huawei has over 100 patent and cross-licensing agreements in the US, EU, Japan and Korea?
