Huawei is one of the world's leading telecoms equipment manufacturers, best known in the industry for its infrastructure kit and mobile broadband dongles. However, it is now also becoming a recognisable name in handsets and other smart devices.
The company invited ZDNet UK out to China to visit its main campus in Shenzhen, where it showed off the latest gear it sells to operators and consumers, as well as the technology it hopes to provide in the future.
The orange box in this picture is a prototype set-top box that acts as a home gateway for broadband connectivity. It also adds in a Wi-Fi router, a surveillance camera and a femtocell.
Femtocells are effectively mini-masts for the home, designed to provide cellular coverage within buildings where an operator's main network struggles to reach. They use a fixed broadband connection for backhaul.
