Huawei Over The Years: Long Road To U.S., Success No Guarantee


2010: Huawei's 3Com Door To U.S. Closed

Hewlett-Packard in 2010 closed its planned acquisition of 3Com for about $2.7 billion. The acquisition ended Huawei's hope of doing business in the U.S. through its 3Com partnership.

3Com's network switching, routing, and security products eventually became part of HP ProCurve. HP also used it to increase its business in China.
