Huawei Released the CloudFAN Prototype for MSOs, Promoting Cloud Evolution for HFC Networks

May 30, 2017

[Cologne, Germany, May 30, 2017] At ANGA COM Exhibition 2017, Huawei released the CloudFAN prototype for multiple system operators (MSOs), and demonstrated fast service provisioning capabilities and smart home based on cloud under the cooperation between open protocols and network controllers.

With the development of new services, such as HD videos, over the top (OTT), bring your own device (BYOD), cloud services, and Internet of things (IoT), network traffic has increased sharply. Operators need to increase their bandwidth to Gigaband service, but face long network construction duration and low return on investment (ROI). To solve this problem, these operators have to explore new services as well as business models, and redefine their business blueprints. Huawei noted that building agile, intelligent, efficient, and open cloud-based networks is the key for operators to transform their businesses.

Huawei released the CloundFAN prototype for MSOs, so as to implement its All-Cloud Network solution. Based on the distributed converged cable access platform (D-CCAP) solution, the CloudFAN prototype enables smooth evolution to the cloud. By supporting agile services, converged architectures, and intelligent O&M, this CloudFAN prototype helps MSOs achieve commercial transformation.

Huawei's HFC network–based D-CCAP solution has been large-scale commercially deployed by mainstream MSOs in 30 countries, including Denmark, New Zealand, Spain, Mexico, France, Japan, and Brazil, covering over 50 million home broadband users. Huawei's HFC network–based CloudFAN prototype will further help MSOs realize smooth evolution to the cloud and achieve business success.
