As network scale and complexity have been increasing sharply for businesses, 80 percent of enterprises have reported that they are struggling with more than 20 operations and maintenance (O&M) systems. In particular, campus networks, wide area networks (WANs) and data center networks (DCNs) rely heavily on manual O&M. To address these challenges, Huawei (News - Alert) announced that it upgraded its Intelligent Cloud-Network Solution with four major capabilities: simplified architecture, ultimate experience, simplified O&M and extreme reliability.
Steven Zhao, Vice President of Huawei's Data Communication Product Line, noted that hybrid work has become the new norm, and videoconferencing has been recognized as a must-have office and production tool. On today's Internet, video traffic accounts for over 80 percent of the total traffic. Estimates show that by 2025, 90 percent of enterprises, especially those in manufacturing and retail sectors, will deploy their services on the cloud.
For campus networks, Huawei fully upgraded its CloudCampus 3.0 Solution and unveiled flagship products, including the next-generation enterprise-class flagship core switch CloudEngine S16700 and the enterprise-class Wi-Fi 7 AP AirEngine 8771-X1T. Plus, Huawei unveiled an intelligent video conference assurance solution and an EasyBranch solution.
For data center networks, Huawei launched the upgraded Easy CloudFabric Solution with software and hardware breakthroughs. Specifically, Huawei released the industry's first data center switch built for diversified computing power — CloudEngine 16800-X, aiming to help customers across industries to move toward the diversified computing era. Together with a pioneering customer, Huawei also launched the industry leading L3.5+ data center autonomous driving network solution. With new enhancements to easy evolution, deployment, and O&M capabilities, this future-proof solution achieves high convergence of applications and networks while also creating the ultimate experience for multi-cloud, heterogeneous networks.
For WANs, Huawei redefined cloud WANs with its fully upgraded CloudWAN 3.0 Solution that simplifies networks, architectures, and devices. Huawei also unveiled the NetEngine 8000 F8, a multi-service converged transport router. With stand-out features such as one network for all and intelligent traffic steering, this feature-rich product is a great fit for customers to reduce network construction costs while improving office and operational efficiency.
