Cloud computing and virtualization have come at the right time to enable data consolidation and facilitate global ICT infrastructure, according to Shen Jingyang, President of Huawei Enterprise Network Market Dept.

Main Topic

A nation's data centers (DCs) are presently as important as transportation systems and energy resources, and form the heart of commercial operations. Positioning DCs within a centrally managed infrastructure, however, has its own challenges.

Huawei's products and services are present in more than 100 countries, and this could not have been possible without its enterprise network, which can provide a template for companies with similar multinational ambitions.

China's Internet traffic has trebled every 18 months; in comparison, routers have not kept up, taking seven years to expand from 40G to 100G. This means we are now clearly in the post-Moore era.

Facing a demand for high-quality video content that can be viewed anywhere and anytime, more operators are providing IPTV services to their subscribers. A look at Huawei's iVideo solution, which guarantees smooth IPTV services.

Industry Focus

Covering most parts of China, a standardized, nationwide, and fully connected e-government extranet is providing the country with a solid platform for intensive e-government applications and optimized administrative efficiency.

Ubiquitous, an inevitable trend, requires a ubiquitous network that connects bank service terminals such as outlets, branches, self-service banks, and POSs with data centers, featuring wide and high-density coverage without any blind spots.

Highly reliable, efficient, and manageable Ethernet-based enterprise networks and data centers provide vital support to the growing number of business-based IT applications, including those relating to finance, administration, production, and websites.

The State Grid Corporation of China (SGCC), which has set itself the target of establishing a unified strong smart grid by 2020,,offers some insights into the building of such a smart communications system.

Bearer Network

The excitement about the 100G transport era has the telecom world buzzing. When will it come? How will the networks look? And how we can build networks to meet the present traffic requirements.

Integrating the IP layer, which can efficiently process packet services, and the optical layer, which can transport massive amounts of traffic over great distances, can help operators build a better, cheaper backbone network.

IP and optical bearer networks may have its advantages, but these networks also require different modes of protection. How does single-layer protection differ from synergetic protection, and which is the most appropriate protection solution.

Increasing network convergence has sped up network architecture evolution, giving rise to Channelized OTN and Multi-channel Load Balance technologies. Both can be used to creatively synergize IP and optical transport networks while raising network performance.

How to Operate

Huawei is helping operators channel the tidal wave of traffic arising from today’s high speed Internet (HSI) services, and thus reduce the strain on networks, lower service costs, and raise QoE for subscribers.

Through unified management of multiple technologies, the U2000 network management system eradicates bottlenecks such as complex IP network technologies and invisible service paths, significantly streamlining and simplifying IP network O&M.

MSC Pool is increasingly popular with operators due to its numerous advantages, such as load balancing and enhanced network reliability. A closer look reveals how it can also contribute to an attractive ROI rate...

Operators are currently searching for ways to boost O&M efficiency, improve network quality, and implement a precise network management mechanism in order to lower OPEX, guarantee customer satisfaction, and sustain revenue growth.
