Huawei Launches All-scenario Intelligent Connectivity Solutions
BEIJING, Oct. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Today, the UN Broadband Commission and Huawei held the sixth Ultra-Broadband 
Forum (UBBF 2020) online in Beijing. With the theme of "Intelligent 
Connectivity, New Value Together", this year's UBBF discussed the challenges 
and opportunities facing the connectivity industry in the intelligent era.

At the event, David Wang, Huawei Executive Director and Chairman of the 
Investment Review Board, delivered a keynote speech titled "Building 
intelligent connectivity for an intelligent world". Mr. Wang also launched 
Huawei's all-scenario intelligent connectivity solutions for home and 
enterprise scenarios. Through these scenarios, home broadband will enter the 
experience economy era and the digital transformation of industries will be 
accelerated.

The connectivity industry is seeing five exciting changes

Every upgrade of connectivity has fundamentally changed society. Now, as we 
move towards the intelligent era, individuals, homes, and enterprises are 
placing higher requirements on connectivity than ever before, and 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 all people and homes. This was Internet of 
everything. As we pursue a seamless AI life and the intelligent upgrades of 
enterprises, we must connect more things with intelligence. This is intelligent 
Internet of everything. According to third-party forecasts, the number of 
connections worldwide will reach one trillion by 2035, making ubiquitous 
connectivity and pervasive intelligent a reality.

Change 2: From office to office + production. COVID-19 has transformed people's 
needs 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 that of 4G. Manual O&M will be inadequate 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 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

During the event, Mr. Wang launched Huawei's all-scenario intelligent 
connectivity solutions, including intelligent distributed access solutions for 
homes, as well as intelligent campus networks, intelligent premium private 
lines, and intelligent cloud network solutions for enterprises.

- Intelligent distributed access: This solution has comprehensively 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 1ms 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 ultimate goal is to grow the digital economy and improve 
people's lives," said Mr. Wang.

"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."

UBBF is a global flagship event for the ICT industry. At this year's event, 
guests from China Mobile, FTTH Council Europe, TechUK, Ernst & Young Advisory 
Limited, IPv6 Forum, SAMENA Telecommunications Council, and Omdia delivered 
speeches.
