Data Center Autonomous Driving Network

The digital economy has become a key driving force for global economic growth. But as digital industries emerge and enterprise digital transformation deepens, higher requirements are placed on DCNs. For example, DCNs need to support rapid service innovation and elastic network expansion with faster speeds and higher intelligence.

In 2021, Huawei's L3 data center autonomous driving network achieved high automation on single-vendor networks.

In 2022, Huawei launched the L3.5 data center autonomous driving network solution, which provides full-lifecycle intelligence capabilities, such as undifferentiated management of multi-cloud and multi-vendor networks, flexible orchestration and collaboration, simulation and verification, risk prediction, and unified O&M of applications and networks. The solution can also work with customers' IT management systems to form an automation process, implementing easy deployment, O&M, and evolution.

In 2023, Huawei's L3.5 autonomous driving DCN solution undergoes an epoch-making upgrade towards L3.5+. This upgraded solution is equipped with brand-new, future-oriented capabilities, such as digital map, providing ultimate O&M experience for applications and multi-cloud networks.
