Huawei Launches the Intent-Driven Networking for CloudFabric Solution

Enabling Data Centers to Become Business Value Centers

Jun 12, 2018

[Hannover, Germany, June 12, 2018] At CEBIT 2018, which was held in Hannover, Germany, Huawei announced a comprehensive upgrade of the CloudFabric solution that makes it easier for customers to adopt intent-driven networking for their data centers. Huawei also launched a 400G core switching platform with the highest performance in the industry. Huawei's Intent-Driven Networking for CloudFabric Solution helps enterprises identify intent to implement automatic network configuration, predictive analysis, and intelligent O&M with continuous verification and optimization. In addition, it achieves physical network connectivity with ultra-broadband, low latency, and zero packet loss, transforming data centers into business value centers.

The Global Connectivity Index 2018 [1] released by Huawei reveals that basic connectivity, once integrated with artificial intelligence (AI), will evolve into intelligent connectivity, stimulating innovation and creating a new round of economic growth. Based on the concepts of intelligence, simplicity, ultra-broadband, openness, and security, Huawei's Intent-Driven Networking for CloudFabric Solution upgrades the Agile Controller to automatically identify intent and improve business agility. This solution also uses the data center network analyzer FabricInsight to implement predictive analysis and automatic anomaly detection, make the operation modes more future-proof, and build an automatic, predictable, and self-healing closed-loop system focused on user experience.

Wang Lei, General Manager of Huawei's Data Center Network Domain, said: "Intelligent connectivity is the core of enterprise digital platforms. Our new Intent-Driven Networking for CloudFabric Solution is driven by users' business logic and service strategy to build an intelligent platform that connects business intent to the network architecture, better enabling digital transformation."

The new functions and key components of the Intent-Driven Networking for CloudFabric Solution include:

Looking into the future, the rapid development of digital transformation drives continuous innovation of networks. Based on the concept of intent-driven networking, Huawei Intent-Driven Networking for CloudFabric Solution will continue to provide advanced, scenario-oriented solutions and products for large service providers, enterprises, or commercial customers, leading data center networks to understand customers' business intent and achieve automatic and intelligent network deployment and operations. This enables data centers to become business value centers.

Huawei together with its partners and customers is showcasing new digital transformation solutions to orchestrate a digital symphony at CEBIT from June 11-15 in Germany, the home of classical music. It is also hosting activities and sharing best practices around Cloud Computing, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big Data, Internet of Things (IoT) and Software-Defined Networking (SDN), all of which play a critical role in today’s digital transformation.

Huawei’s booth is at Area C01 in Hall 13, Hannover Exhibition Center, Germany. For more information about Huawei at CEBIT, please visit To learn more about Huawei’s worldwide customer cases using "Leading New ICT", please visit
