Telecom-equipment maker Huawei Technologies has been awarded an injunction against its Chinese rival, ZTE Technologies, the target of a flurry of patent and trademark lawsuits Huawei filed in Germany, France, and Hungary.

"Huawei has received the injunction as part of our legal claim that ZTE is infringing on our trademark," said Huawei spokesman Ross Gan in a statement. "We welcome the decision, which will protect our innovation and intellectual property."

Huawei's lawsuits – which were which were filed one day before ZTE counter-sued Huawei for patent violation in China in April – claim that ZTE is infringing on Huawei patents relating to data cards and 4G wireless LTE technologies, and that ZTE illegally used a Huawei-registered trademark on some of its data card products.

Having grown past Alcatel-Lucent and Nokia Siemens, Huawei is now reported to be the world's second-biggest telecom-network equipment provider. Further growth is assured by its recent deal with T-Mobile to deliver a Packet Switched Core Networks (PS-CN) system in Germany, the UK, Austria, the Netherlands, and the Czech Republic.

In addition to networks, Huawei is building Android-powered smartphones that it believes can snag market share from the iPhone and from Samsung's Galaxy line, according to The Guardian. ®
