Chinese technology giant Huawei is building a substantial 18-building campus in Johannesburg to house its various operations and is investing US$100 million to ensure it has all the facilities it needs for its various divisions, projects, partners and customers.
The company told TechCentral that some staff had already started to move in and that the campus would be operational soon.
Huawei already has an OpenLab research and development center in the city and that is expected to move to the new campus in time. (See Joburg In Line to Host OpenLab.)
With divisions developing technology and associated services for mobile and fixed network operators, enterprises and (with its smartphones) consumers, Huawei is one of the most prominent tech companies operating in Africa and the largest single global supplier of telecom technology in the world.
