What is Intent-Driven Networking?

  • Intelligence

  • Simplicity

  • Ultra-Broadband

  • Openness

  • Security

According to GSMA's Mobile Economy 2019 and Huawei's Global Industry Vision (GIV) 2025 reports, there will be 1.4 billion[1] 5G users and 100 billion[2] IoT connections worldwide by 2025. In such a world, enterprises of all sizes must ensure ubiquitous connectivity for large numbers of devices and capitalize on AI and cloud to greatly improve operational efficiency. Other estimates in Huawei's GIV 2025 reveal that by 2025, 86% of enterprises will adopt AI[3]. In the digital age, data security is crucial to enterprises, and even to their survival. As such, enterprises are looking for all-inclusive network protection to ensure data security. Digital transformation is accelerating in many industries; however, the network itself, as the enterprise ICT foundation, is not digitalized as expected.

Huawei’s Intent-Driven Network (IDN), based on the simplified, ultra-broadband network infrastructure, achieves more widespread access and simpler management. A digital twin is used to build a digital world, enabling technologies such as AI to be applied in the network field and realizing “autonomous driving” networks. IDN intelligently understands business intent, based on which it implements automatic deployment of network services and policies as well as quickly provisioning new services. IDN achieves real-time awareness of user experience and automatic optimization, ensuring high-quality experience for user services. Based on the joint innovation with NetCity, Huawei has achieved the rapid integration of IDN with numerous industry applications and cloud platforms, supporting more extensive industry innovation. Due to the constant migration of enterprise data and services to the cloud, enterprises are attaching more importance to security. In response, Huawei IDN provides proactive security defense services — which are accessible on demand — to implement end-to-end intelligent security threat detection and disposal.

Huawei IDN will provide enterprise with solutions tailored to scenarios such as data center, WAN, branch interconnection, and network security, helping them stride towards a fully connected, intelligent world.
