Huawei Unveils Upgraded CloudWAN 3.0 Solution at HUAWEI CONNECT 2023

During the recently held HUAWEI CONNECT 2023 event, Huawei announced the upgraded capabilities of its CloudWAN 3.0 solution. This enhanced solution brings wide connection, converged network, and intelligent management features, ultimately delivering an exceptional experience for enterprise data express networks and accelerating industry intelligent transformation.

In today’s digital era, technology is revolutionizing various industries. To support the intelligent transformation of industries, Wide Area Networks (WANs) must meet the specific bandwidth and latency requirements of different services. However, they face several challenges, like difficulties in identifying audio/video quality-of-experience problems in the public service sector, low utilization of private lines in the financial sector, and challenges in ensuring production service assurance in the energy and transportation sectors. Additionally, WANs often suffer from low efficiency due to manual and passive operations and maintenance.

To address these challenges, Zuo Meng, President of Huawei’s Data Communication Product Line Metro Router Domain, presented the comprehensively upgraded CloudWAN 3.0 solution. This solution utilizes the IPv6 Enhanced technology system to provide the broadband and deterministic latency demanded by networks. It also offers simplified architecture and operations and maintenance (O&M), ensuring an ultimate experience and reliability.

The CloudWAN 3.0 solution boasts several key features:

1. Wide connection: The Huawei NetEngine 8000 E series provides 400GE ports for efficient data transmission and ultra-broadband interconnection. Cloud terminals, such as the NetEngine A800 Es, enable wired and wireless access from any location within an enterprise’s WAN branch, significantly improving network coverage. The use of SRv6 technology allows services to access clouds over optimal paths and be provisioned within minutes.

2. Converged network: Fine-grained slicing with a level of 10 Mbps provides deterministic assurance for core production services like power relay protection, train control, and train dispatching. These services are allocated exclusive transmission resources and benefit from enhanced security isolation. Huawei’s computing application awareness boards improve transmission efficiency through data acceleration. The APN6-based application-level intelligent scheduling offers improved network utilization, refined operations, and differentiated assurance. The solution ensures data isolation and all-round security protection for secure service transport.

3. Intelligent management: The iMaster NCE-IP Network Digital Map 2.0 creates a smart CloudWAN cockpit, enabling holographic network perception and real-time six-dimensional visualization within seconds. It offers functions like service-level in-band flow measurement, automated hop-by-hop path restoration, minute-level fault demarcation, automated path optimization, application-level differentiated assurance, application identification, and intelligent application bandwidth optimization.

The CloudWAN 3.0 solution upgrades also drive device upgrades. For instance, the NetEngine 8000E M14, known as the industry’s most compact universal-service router, offers an upgraded forwarding capacity of 3.6 Tbps. It combines SR, BRAS, CGN, IPsec, and SA functions in one device and supports interfaces ranging from 64 kbps to 400 Gbps. Additionally, the NetEngine A800 E series, specifically designed for enterprise scenarios, supports MPLS, SR-MPLS, and SRv6 transport, as well as uplink wireless access, catering to the diverse access requirements of enterprise branches.

Moving forward, Huawei will continue to invest in technological innovation for data communication WANs. The company aims to develop cutting-edge solutions and products that unlock the digital potential and power the intelligent transformation of various industries.
