Huawei wins preliminary injunction in Motorola lawsuit

Michael Kan | Feb. 28, 2011
Chinese network equipment maker Huawei has won a preliminary injunction from a U.S. court, preventing Motorola Solutions from carrying out the transfer of trade secrets to Nokia Siemens Networks.

The collapse of Huawei's deal for 3Leaf Systems has more to do with U.S. politicians wanting to attract attention, said Matt Walker, an analyst with research firm Ovum. "Huawei was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time," he said, noting that jealousy and resentment over China's economic rise may have factored in the U.S. government pressuring Huawei to reverse the acquisition.

Huawei's lawsuit against Motorola could be seen as a way for the company to fight back against what it views as unfair treatment, Walker added. "That is certainly one reasonable way to view Huawei's very late complaints against (Nokia Siemens Network's) purchase of Motorola wireless assets," he said.
