"It was astonishing, since no one -Chinese or foreign -thought a Chinese company could beat respected international brands. Legend is heroic because it gave confidence to Chinese people that our technology could be as good as any in the world."1

- Edward Tian, CEO of China Netcom, a Customer of Legend.

Introduction
