Singapore Telecommunications (Singtel) is reported to be transferring around 500 of its staff to Huawei as part of a managed services contract.
Huawei has signed a 5-year contract to operate and maintain SingTel's copper-based voice and data network infrastructure, starting June, SingTel told the Reuters news agency in a statement.
"The initiative will allow SingTel to focus on core competencies such as product development, marketing and customer engagement," said Executive Vice President of Networks Tay Soo Meng.
Affected SingTel employees will be offered employment at Huawei with no change to existing roles, responsibilities, remuneration and benefits, the Singapore firm added.
SingTel employs around 13,400 staff.
