Huawei’s All-scenario Intelligent Connectivity Solutions

Editor’s Note: Today, the UN Broadband Commission and Huawei held the sixth Ultra-Broadband Forum (UBBF 2020) online in Beijing. Themed Intelligent Connectivity, New Value Together, this year’s UBBF discussed the challenges and opportunities facing the connectivity industry in the intelligent era.

Huawei Executive Director David Wang delivered the keynote speech “Building Intelligent connectivity for an intelligent world” and launched Huawei’s all-scenario intelligent connectivity solutions for home and enterprise scenarios. These scenarios will enable home broadband to enter the experience economy era and the digital transformation of industries will be accelerated.

The Connectivity Industry is Seeing 5 Exciting Changes

Every upgrade of connectivity has fundamentally changed
society. Now as we move towards the intelligent era, individuals, homes, and
enterprises expect more from connectivity than ever before. New technologies,
such as cloud and AI, are quickly integrating with connectivity. This is
leading the connectivity industry to experience five exciting changes:

Change 1: From IoT and intelligent IoT to connected Intelligent Twins. In the past, we aimed to connect every person and every home, creating an Internet of Everything. As we pursue a seamless AI life and the intelligent upgrade of enterprises, we must connect more things with intelligence. This is the intelligent Internet of Everything. According to third-party forecasts, the number of connections worldwide will reach 1 trillion by 2035, making ubiquitous connectivity and pervasive intelligent a reality.

Change 2: From
office to office + production.
COVID-19 has transformed the need for home
broadband. In enterprise scenarios, connectivity has gone beyond serving offices
to serving both offices and production. The focus of enterprise digitization
has shifted from digital office to digital production, transactions, and
operations.

Change 3: From
best effort to differentiated deterministic services.
Industries
vary in terms of service scenarios and connectivity requirements. If
differentiated services are the default, then deterministic experience is a
must. Therefore, operators can only open the door to vertical markets by
providing differentiated and deterministic services.

Change 4: From
Mbps to Gbps via any medium.
Multiple access technologies exist, including cellular,
Wi-Fi, and optical fiber technologies, and the diversity of service scenarios
mean that multiple access technologies will co-exist for many years to come. Through
concerted efforts across the industry, 4G, 5G, Wi-Fi, and fiber technologies
can now deliver ubiquitous gigabit connectivity.

Change 5: From
manual O&M to hyper-automation.
5G will make
network O&M more complex than 4G. Manual O&M won’t be able to handle
these new complexities, and give way to hyper-automation powered by big data
and AI to simplify O&M decision-making.

Moving Towards Intelligent Connectivity with AI

These five changes are placing new requirements on connectivity.
To meet these requirements and realize greater productivity, connectivity must
be upgraded to the next level.

The first requirement is ubiquitous gigabit, as bandwidth is the foundation of connectivity. Ubiquitous gigabit connectivity is necessary for ultra-HD video, industrial VR/AR applications, AI cameras, and drones.

The second requirement is the deterministic experience,
which is essential to home scenarios such as telecommuting and online learning,
as well as enterprise scenarios like safe and reliable production.

The third requirement is hyper-automation. As networks advance
in terms of complexity and scale, big data and AI must be utilized to achieve
hyper-automation.

In the
intelligent era, intelligent connectivity will take on three major
characteristics: Ubiquitous gigabit, deterministic experience, and
hyper-automation.

Huawei’s
All-scenario Intelligent Connectivity Solutions

Huawei’s
all-scenario intelligent connectivity solutions include intelligent distributed
access solutions for homes, intelligent campus networks, intelligent premium
private lines, and intelligent cloud network solutions for enterprises.

  • Intelligent
    distributed access:
    This
    solution has completely upgraded home devices, the local end, and network
    management. With gigabit Wi-Fi coverage throughout entire rooms, high-quality
    service experience, and precise user identification, intelligent distributed
    access will allow operators to benefit more from network experience than from
    the user base.
  • Intelligent
    campus networks:
    Thanks
    to central LAN & WAN management, Gbps access, and AI-based intelligent
    O&M, intelligent campus networks allow operators to provide one-stop
    network solutions for enterprises as they move to the cloud.
  • Intelligent
    premium private lines:

    This solution greatly reduces latency thanks to all-optical switching
    technology, enabling operators to offer high-end enterprise users 1 ms
    ultra-low latency and the ultimate experience. Built upon Liquid OTN
    technology, flexible hard pipes support flexible bandwidth access ranging from
    2 Mbps to 100 Gbps, and lossless service adjustment. In addition, intelligent
    premium private lines connect enterprise customers to wavelength-level private
    networks through exclusive wavelength or subwavelength resources.
  • Intelligent
    cloud networks:

    This solution aims to create synergy between the cloud and network in the cloud
    era. Based on intelligent IP networks, intelligent cloud networks will build a
    high-quality cloud private network, allowing enterprises to access multiple
    clouds.

Over the past 30 years, Huawei has worked with customers and partners to create a Seamless AI Life for all homes and drive the intelligent upgrades of all industries. Our goal is to grow the digital economy and improve people’s lives.

Through continuous investment in 5G,
Optical Network and IPv6 Enhanced innovation, today we launch our all-scenario
intelligent connectivity solutions. These solutions will make ultra-broadband
networks greener and more efficient, and create a more intelligent world.
Moving forward, we will redouble our efforts in basic research, invest more in
next-generation network technologies, and work with all stakeholders to shape a
more low-carbon, efficient, and intelligent world.
