Huawei, one of the world's foremost information and communications technology companies providing services and products to one-third of the world’s population, believes that Turkey’s location is quite strategic. Turkey, being a part of the ancient Silk Road network that is linked to China and serving as a bridge between the Middle East and Northern Africa region (MENA) and Europe, holds a considerably strategic position.


Huawei began operations in Turkey in 2002 with the opening of an office in Ankara. The company then opened offices in Umraniye and Maslak in Istanbul. Huawei Turkey has been taking advantage of the country’s human resources and geographical position and providing services to 11 countries across the Middle East and Caucasus as the headquarters since 2009. The company is the biggest supporter of Turkey’s 2023 vision developed for the information and communications sector. Huawei Turkey’s 800 employees and more than 60 business partners encompassing a 4,000-person ecosystem have been a driving force in the development of Turkey’s information communications technology sector and its economy. In October 2014, Huawei was named the leader in the “Telecommunications Infrastructure Equipment” category of the “Top 500 IT Companies” survey.


Since 2011, Huawei has expanded its field of activities through device and enterprise operations. Today, the company provides products and services to operators, enterprises and consumers, while its R&D center, training center and three major business units offer dedicated digital-age support for Turkey.


Huawei Turkey’s R&D Centre


Huawei has 16 R&D centers as part of its integrated product development process. In February 2015, Huawei Turkey’s R&D unit celebrated its fifth year of operations. The company made an investment of more than USD 80 million in Europe’s second-largest international R&D and Software Solution Center, which came into operation in Istanbul in 2009. Software produced here is used in more than 30 countries across Europe and South America.


The Huawei Academy


The Huawei Academy was founded in 2008 and has so far conducted training programs in three languages across 11 countries. The Huawei Academy, with its ever-developing training center and growing team, has begun to address a wider region by providing training support not only in Turkey but also in Azerbaijan, Albania, Georgia, Belarus, and other Central Asian countries.


Product Groups


Telecommunications Infrastructure Product Group

With its customer-oriented approach and customized comprehensive offer packages, Huawei provides a rapid response to customers’ needs and serves 45 of the world’s largest telecoms operators. These solutions support the network data traffic and also help operators develop their networks and achieve the best possible results from a technological perspective, while enabling faster operations as well as vast and problem-free applications at a very low network costs.


Huawei Turkey began its activities with telecoms projects. The company, continuing its efforts to establish telecoms infrastructure with Turkey’s leading landline and mobile operators, is preferred by all mobile operators for mobile infrastructure tenders and has also conducted many national communications and broadband projects with leading landline operators. Huawei Turkey provides various services to the largest telecommunication operators in Turkey and neighboring regions, such as Turk Telekom, Turkcell, Vodafone, Avea, Turkcell Superonline, TeliaSonera Eurasia, Alb Telecom, KKTC Telsim, Kuzey Kibris Turkcell and Eagle Mobile. Huawei, the sole provider in Turk Telekom’s access network, also serves one-third of Turkcell’s infrastructure and enables TeliaSonera to provide services for all of its customers in the region.


Enterprise Management Group

Huawei’s corporate products, which are particularly prominent in Turkey, include solutions for switches, servers, routers and video conferencing, while the company produces and sells around 35,000 products globally. Based on the win-win principle, Huawei Turkey aims to have long-lasting, successful partnerships in the corporate services sector with more than 100 business partners.


Device Management Group

Huawei serves more than 500 operators around the world and offers a range of user-friendly mobile phones, mobile broadband devices and home devices for the end-user market with the aim of improving consumers’ mobile internet experience. Huawei has reinforced awareness of its brand by sponsoring Galatasaray, one of Turkey’s leading football teams. Huawei’s Ascend P6 and P7, which were introduced to the Turkish market with Vodafone, as well as the agreement made with all operators at the end of 2014 for the G7, are considered yet more recent successes. Having already earned a key position in the market in 2015 with the Mate 7, Huawei is the topic on everyone’s lips with its cutting-edge wearable technology products for the next generation.
