Huawei unveiled the enhanced capabilities of its Intelligent Cloud-Network Solution at the HUAWEI CONNECT 2022 Bangkok summit titled “Intelligent Cloud-Network, Leading Digital Innovation.” The capabilities cover three major scenarios — CloudFabric, CloudWAN, and CloudCampus — and were developed to meet the changing needs of customers. Huawei also released a White Paper on Wireless Intelligent Network Architecture to help enterprises with digital innovation.
Enterprise services place new demands on data communication networks as digital transformation progresses. First, massive IoT connections necessitate ultra-broadband and ubiquitous connectivity. Second, as enterprise branch services migrate to the cloud, networks must provide flexible deployment and rapid cloudification capabilities. Third, new services must be implemented on a large scale, and services must be adjusted on a regular basis, necessitating networks that are agile, secure, and efficient. Finally, as video conferencing becomes more common, networks must provide deterministic experience assurance.
Sun Liang, Vice President of Huawei’s Data Communication Product Line, stated that to address the preceding challenges, Huawei Datacom had developed the Intelligent Cloud-Network Solution through continuous innovation. This solution includes features such as ultimate access experience, ultra-fast cloud access by branches, deterministic experience, and efficient and simplified deployment.
Currently, the Intelligent Cloud-Network Solution is widely used in industries such as education, retail, government, and finance to help customers with digital transformation. In the education sector, for example, the all-wireless Wi-Fi networking solution provides the ultimate network access experience; in the retail sector, the SD-WAN ultra-fast cloud access solution allows one store to open in just one day; in the government sector, Huawei’s network slicing technology enables converged transport over one network and 100% assurance of business-critical services; and in the financial sector, the simplified cross-domain multi-cloud service deployment.
Huawei also unveiled several new data communication products at the conference, including the industry’s first Wi-Fi 7 AP AirEngine 8771-X1T, the 400G-ready next-generation campus core switch CloudEngine S16700, and the 4-in-1 universal-service intelligent router NetEngine 8000 M4.
In addition, Huawei released its Wireless Intelligent Network Architecture White Paper. Liu Jianning, President of Huawei’s Global Enterprise Network Marketing & Solutions Sales Dept, said that one of the most important changes to campus networks is fully wireless. The adoption of Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 7 in the future poses new requirements on network bandwidth, architecture, and O&M. To meet these new requirements, Huawei proposes the next-generation campus network architecture — wireless intelligent network architecture. This architecture has seven unique features: fully wireless, hyper-converged, ultra-broadband, simplified, low-carbon, secure, and intelligent.
At the conference, customers from various industries shared how they have used Huawei’s Intelligent Cloud-Network Solution in their commercial practices. Agus Ariyanto, Vice President Network of Biznet, delivered a speech entitled “Biznet Builds a Future-oriented Intelligent WAN.” He said that “Built on a flat metro network, Huawei helps Biznet consolidate its leading role in the Industry.
Together with Huawei, we’ll explore more regarding emerging technologies and business innovation based on IPE.” Billy Wong, Chief Technology Officer of Nova Credit Limited, delivered a speech entitled “Financial Cloud-Network, Promoting FinTech Innovation.” He noted that “In Nova Credit’s data centers, we deployed Huawei’s CloudFabric data center network solution. On the physical layer, Huawei CloudEngine data center switches build high-performing 40GE/100GE interconnections; on the management layer, the solution provides full-lifecycle automation capabilities and easy SDN experience.”
