Huawei has announced new capabilities of the Intelligent cloud network solution. This solution helps carriers build cloud-oriented service networks and core capabilities for DICT transformation. These include One hop to the cloud; One-network wide connection; One-click fast scheduling; One fiber for multiple purposes; plus One-stop integrated security.
Huawei’s intelligent cloud network solution maximizes the value of carriers’ network resources and fully leverages the complementary advantages of clouds and networks. As such, it is the key for carriers to provide DICT services integrating clouds and networks.
Understanding the Huawei Intelligent Cloud Network capabilities
One hop to the cloud: The cloud backbone provides flexible connections between multiple clouds and networks while SRv6-based cloud access paths streamline cross-domain connections. With technology breaking process barriers, experience on clouds and networks becomes consistent, and service access to clouds through one network can be implemented within minutes.
One-network-wide connection: The service-oriented network architecture provides tenant-level interfaces to shield network implementation details. This reduces the system integration time by 90%, enabling enterprises to use networks as conveniently as using clouds. Furthermore, with iMaster NCE’s intelligent distributed path computation, the scale of network connections reaches 100 times greater than the industry average, meeting the demands for ultra-large-scale networking and global interconnection of numerous tenants.
One-click fast scheduling: The intelligent cloud graph algorithm, combining network and cloud factors, provides optimal cloud access paths for enterprises and implements integrated scheduling of cloud and network resources. This improves the cloud and network resource utilization by 30%.
One fiber for multiple purposes: On the enterprise side, the intelligent cloud terminal — a box-shaped device — provides access to multiple services requiring different SLAs, such as CCTV, office Internet access, and remote conferencing. On the network side, one fiber to different slice-based service private networks provides fine-granularity experience assurance.
One-stop integrated security: Working with TianGuan enterprise-side security gateways, the QIANKUN security cloud service builds all-around defense capabilities that feature cloud-network-security integration. This helps achieve a 96% detection rate for new threats, detection of hidden attacks within minutes, near-source blocking of threats related to cloud-network security integration, cloud-based deployment of atomic security capabilities, and cloud-based O&M and security services in subscription mode.
To date, Huawei has carried out joint cloud network innovation and commercial use with more than 30 carriers, serving digitalization scenarios, covering government, healthcare, education, finance, mining, port, iron and steel, and electric power industries.
Looking ahead, Huawei will continue to innovate based on IPv6+ technologies and refine the intelligent cloud network solution to help carriers explore the business value of connections, build new business models, and accelerate the digital transformation of industries.
