China's Huawei has three major businesses (telecom, smartphones, and others like cloud service and computer servers) with a total revenue of $75.1 billion in 2016.

"SHENZHEN, China — It's a mixed bag when it comes to Chinese tech giant Huawei, where profits are largely flat and sales continue to rise.

Net profit edged up 0.4 percent to 37.1 billion yuan ($5.3 billion) in 2016, while overall revenue jumped 32 percent to 521.6 billion yuan ($75.1 billion), according to the company.
...
The Shenzhen-based company remains extremely ambitious, and has continued to spend massively on R&D, shelling out 76.4 billion yuan ($11 billion) to further its business."

However, we are only interested in Huawei's telecom sales to enable a direct comparison with Ericsson to determine the world's largest telecom company.

According to TelecomLead, Huawei telecom sales ($42.16 billion) were almost double those of second-place Ericsson ($24.93 billion).

The question is whether Ericsson can reclaim market-share in the telecom industry. In my opinion, I think Ericsson's chances are pretty slim. Huawei's annual R&D budget is a massive $11 billion. There is no way Ericsson can match Huawei's R&D expenditure.

If you are unfamiliar with Huawei's history and rise to become the world's largest telecom company, it was based on daring technological innovation.

Huawei is a technology pioneer and its patents are important for at least four reasons.

1. Huawei pioneered many SDN technologies.
2. Huawei built "the industry’s first Giga DSL (Digital Subscriber line) prototype" in 2011.
3. "Huawei also recently announced the successful development of the world’s first node level vectoring (NLV) prototype" in 2011.
4. Huawei was an innovator in DSLAM.

Due to its pioneering technologies and patents, Huawei grew into a $60 billion company for 2015. Chinese tech companies develop many of their own technologies and patents to become giants.

The following citation is from 2011 on Huawei's pioneering technology.

Huawei Smart AX M5300. The Smart AX MA5300 platform has been instrumental to Huawei's success in the global DSLAM (digital subscriber line access multiplexer) market, but the MA5600 series, designed to support more bandwidth-intensive services such as triple/quad play, is the company's flagship DSLAM.

In tata communication I use to work with Ericsson 312 & 108 DSLAM back in 2007, they were quite robust back at that time. Alcatel-Lucent DSLAM were also good they were much more secure then Ericsson one's.

Back in those days there was no sign of Huawei, don't know how the market is now in India.
