How Huawei aims to enhance IP networks

23 Apr 2019

Huawei announced its new brand strategy for IP networking and unveiled four new engine series products for the IP network in the intelligence era. These announcements signify Huawei's efforts to build ubiquitous connectivity, release 100 per cent AI computing power by using an ultra-broadband lossless network and help users march rapidly into a fully connected, intelligent world.

With the advent of 5G, cloud, and AI, hundreds of billions of production and office terminals will collaborate and unite with each other, 100 per cent of enterprise services will migrate to the cloud and, with AI adoption expected to reach an estimated 86 per cent by 2025, there will be many potential security issues to be addressed. All these trends are posing greater challenges for the digital transformation of enterprises.

The network is the basis of enterprises' digital transformation but needs to overcome some core challenges, such as how to carry and flexibly deploy enterprise services, how to ensure the uncompromised experience for migrating these services to the cloud, and how to ensure ICT security.

Huawei supposedly believes that the future network must be simple and AI-capable so that it can proactive detect service changes and predict network risks in time. These expectations will drive enterprise ICT infrastructure transformation, helping enterprises reshape business models and continually improve the customer experience for optimal outcomes in the future.

Huawei president Kevin Hu says, "Huawei has more than 20 years of expertise in the IP field. We are committed to building differentiated innovative products and continuously applying digital technologies, such as 5G, cloud computing, and AI to IP networks. We believe that the intelligent IP networks built with the four-engine series products can continuously empower users with business intelligence."

Huawei's four new engine series products for the IP network are AirEngine, CloudEngine, NetEngine, and HiSecEngine.

AirEngine: Huawei first Wi-Fi 6 commercial product builds on 5G strengths of Huawei. It has passed the highest performance verification of the Tolly Group, an international authoritative test organization. Huawei 5G smart antenna and intelligent application acceleration technologies increase the Wi-Fi coverage area by 50 per cent, shorten the Wi-Fi network latency to 10 milliseconds, and achieve an optimal mobile experience.

CloudEngine: Huawei's embedded AI chip and unique AI algorithm enable zero packet loss and the fastest forwarding performance in the industry, successfully leading data centre networks into the AI era.

Huawei campus switches stand out with the highest forwarding performance, and they build on AI-powered application identification and dynamic network algorithms to build a packet loss-free, high-quality campus network. The distributed AI O&M architecture can reduce fault identification from minutes to seconds, shorten automatic fault location from hours to minutes, and reduce OPEX by 40 per cent.

NetEngine: Huawei NetEngine intelligent metro routers have the largest capacity in the industry, are SRv6 ready, and offer full-lifecycle intelligent automation. With NetEngine, one network can carry B2B, B2C, and B2H services. It provides intelligent connections and application-level SLA assurance for many vertical industry applications, building a solid digital foundation for the 5G era.

Huawei next-generation NetEngine AR6000 series SD-WAN routers use a brand-new architecture and are designed with rich hardware acceleration engines and unique Ultra-Fast forwarding algorithms, improving SD-WAN performance to three times the industry average. All these merits make them ideal WAN edge routers with the fastest speeds and optimal experiences.

HiSecEngine: Based on core concepts of Huawei's HiSec security solution, this high-performance network security engine accurately identifies unknown threats to ensure always-on core services. It provides an intelligent defence system to protect the fully connected, digital world.
