Huawei signs partner to sell networking gear in Canada


Some two years after they first became available in the U.S., Chinese networking equipment vendor Huawei Technologies is now selling its enterprise equipment lineup – including switches, routers, and unified communications gear – to Canadian enterprise customers.
