11/3/2003 - Performance Technologies (Nasdaq NM: PTIX) announced Huawei Technologies, a world leading telecommunications manufacturer based in China, has selected the Performance Technologies SEGwayTM Inline SS7 Protocol Converter Platform to provide connectivity between telecom networks in China and Thailand.
