Huawei in der Schweiz

In Switzerland, more than 400 employees work at our three main locations in Bern, Zurich, and Lausanne.

Huawei is represented in Switzerland with various business groups:

For Swiss telecommunications operators and major service providers, Huawei offers end-to-end products and services in the areas of fixed network access, mobile communication including 5G, as well as transmission and IP networks. Thanks to state-of-the-art technology and leading innovation, Huawei has developed unique solutions tailored to the Swiss market, contributing to the expansion of ultra-fast broadband in both fixed and mobile networks throughout the country, especially in rural areas.

In the enterprise business, we target specific industry solutions in healthcare, education, finance, manufacturing, and internet service providers, providing renowned customers with our network, data center, storage, and cloud solutions. Huawei relies on a loyal and steadily growing partner ecosystem of Swiss distributors, resellers, as well as implementation, solution, IT, and innovation partners.

In the Digital Power sector, we supply our customers with leading digital energy products and solutions. We are committed to integrating digital technology and power electronics, developing clean energy, and digitizing energy supply to advance the energy transition. In the field of clean power generation, we assist in creating systems based on renewable energy. In the environmentally friendly ICT power infrastructure, we help build low-carbon and intelligent data centers and communication networks.

In the consumer business, we focus on five growth pillars: Smart Office, Fitness & Health, Smart Home, Easy Travel, and Entertainment. Our products for end consumers in all these areas stand out for the perfect combination of high-tech and design; our laptops and tablets, mobile broadband devices, headphones and speakers, wearables, or other smart devices are also popular in Switzerland.


It is our firm belief that technology should be a force for good. As a member of the United Nations Global Compact and the Responsible Business Alliance, Huawei has always advocated for a fair, respectful, and human-centered use of technology.

Based on strict governance rules, we have committed to collaborating with our suppliers, partners, and customers to address potential negative impacts of technology development collectively.

We respect the laws of all countries and regions where we operate and adhere to them. In particular, we place great importance on the protection of privacy and data security, taking our responsibility seriously. We comply with all globally applicable data protection laws, including the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the new data protection law in Switzerland (nDSG).

Huawei Switzerland - Cybersecurity

In our increasingly digital and interconnected world, the establishment and full implementation of an open, transparent, and visible end-to-end cybersecurity system are crucial strategies for Huawei.

Cybersecurity is, therefore, a top priority at Huawei. We believe that transparency is the key to trust. Swiss customers, authorities, or other stakeholders can utilize the services of our European Cyber Security Transparency Center based in Brussels to review the source code of Huawei components they use or deploy in Switzerland.

Every employee at Huawei Switzerland undergoes regular security awareness training and testing. Over 500 Huawei privacy experts have been certified by the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP), positioning Huawei among the best companies worldwide.

We are dedicated to a Zero-Trust approach, where there are no inherently trusted services, providers, users, or devices within or outside a network. Only what has been tested, authenticated, and authorized according to uniform standards can be considered secure. Therefore, we actively participate in the development of security standards in international forums such as the 3GPP industry association or the ITU.
