Huawei has announced its Agile Network 2016 brand new solutions and services at HUAWEI CONNECT 2016. The Agile Network 2016 focuses solutions on the mobilization of users and services during the digital transformation of enterprises, on IoT application of production systems, and on new challenges brought by cloud-based applications. This brand new solution is intended to create a network that is on-demand, has self-services, is easily managed, and is both secure and trusted.
This new solution uses cloud technology to simplify network management, while the software-defined networking (SDN) architecture better enables cloud intelligence. The Agile Network adheres to the concepts of ‘open, simple, and secure’, and is able to assist enterprises in achieving service innovation, service agility, and Financial Efficiency during digitization.
“‘For the Cloud, By the Cloud’, is the perfect explanation of the proposition we have released”, said Swift Liu, President of Huawei Enterprise Network Product Line, “New business models brought about by cloud services are subverting traditional industries, and a intelligent cloud that provides services relies on a software-defined, open, simple, and secure network. This network is able to connect every part of an enterprise, every IoT system, and every mobile device. Cloud technology is also changing the efficiency of service deployment, management, and Operation and Maintenance (O&M) for traditional networks. Networks of the future should combine virtualization, automation, edge intelligence, cloud-based management, and security everywhere. These are the characteristics that we believe networks of the digital era should have.”
The new Agile Network 2016 innovative solutions released include:
Cloud Campus (Uses cloud technology to achieve campus network planning, deployment, and O&M for the full lifecycle network cloud management) and CloudVPN (Targeting the issue of increasingly high private line costs of enterprises, Huawei brings together cost efficient Internet links with private line links using SD WAN technology, optimizing the application-based paths of multiple links, and allowing enterprises to make huge savings on the leasing of WAN links while maintaining the high quality of services).
Additionally, the Agile Network 2016 updates include a Cloud Fabric 5.0 solution with refined O&M, new practice for IoT in the elevator industry, and a ubiquitous virtualized security solution: Cloud Security. The Huawei Agile Network will match and conform to cloud-based policies better than before, connect the intelligence of clouds, and speed up the digital transformation of enterprises.
