Huawei Unveils Its Intelligent and Simplified 5G Core Network Solution
[Barcelona, Spain, February 27, 2019] Huawei's intelligent and simplified 5G core network made its debut at the 2019 MWC. It helps operators build an all-cloud, full-stack, fully converged, simplified, intelligent, and reliable 5G core network, provide supreme service experience, and lay the groundwork for business success.
Cloud Native and Full Stack: A cloudified network is the cornerstone of 5G. Leveraging the Cloud Native software architecture, Huawei intelligent & simplified 5G core network supports cloud-based key technologies, such as three-layer decoupling, stateless design, cross-DC deployment, microservices, and A/B test. Its fully cloudified NFVI, Cloud OS, and VNFs ensure fast resource orchestration; its full-stack services, such as CS, IMS, PS, EPC, PCRF, and SDM, enable fast function orchestration and business agility. The development process for new versions has been reduced from years to months, and the service TTM from months to weeks.
Strengthen Edge: To cope with rapid growth of network traffic and meet new services requirements for high bandwidth and low latency, distributed architecture will become the fundamental core network architecture. Powered by advanced technologies such as distributed, cloud-based databases and stateless design, Huawei has become the industry's only vendor that provides commercialized, distributed gateways. Its one-stop user plane gateways are plug-and-play and maintenance-free, allow for centralized configuration and management, and can be integrated with a wide array of content and applications. This one-stop user plane gateway solution reduces network latency, increases service experience, and improves O&M efficiency.
Autonomous Network: Increasingly complex networks pose great challenges to service operations, network management, and service experience management. Integrating AI technology with the core network, Huawei provides fully automated, intelligent, closed-loop lifecycle management throughout processes such as network design, deployment, configuration, test, maintenance, and operations. VNF or NF self-configuration, network self-optimization, and service self-recovery ensure 10 times the operation efficiency and build up an autonomous 5G core network.
One Core for All: Huawei's intelligent & simplified 5G core network can work with 2G, 3G, 4G, 5G NSA, and 5G SA networks and allows for converged control, user, and data planes. Subscribers can access new services without the need to change their SIM cards or numbers. The network is an ideal choice for operators seeking a smooth evolution to 5G and maximized return on network investment.
Till now, Huawei had secured more than 30 worldwide 5G commercial contracts. Huawei will continue to collaborate with worldwide operators and partners to get ready for large-scale, commercial 5G deployment.
MWC 2019 runs from February 25 to February 28 in Barcelona, Spain. Huawei showcases its products and solutions at booth 1H50 in Fira Gran Via Hall 1, booth 3I30 in Hall 3, the Innovation City zone in Hall 4, and booth 7C21 and 7C31 in Hall 7.
