Creating Ingenious and Excellent Wi-Fi Networks

As 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi products are launched to the market on a large scale, Wi-Fi technologies are marching towards the enterprise application field. Higher performance of Wi-Fi products means a larger demand and wider scope of their application. Wi-Fi vendors are now facing increasingly more challenges. How can they stand out from fierce competition?

Enterprises have strict and diversified requirements for network products and also high quality expectations. They care about whether network products can provide 99.999% reliability, adapt to extremely harsh environments, or consume as little power as possible. Therefore, Wi-Fi vendors must focus on quality and strive for excellence in every last details: from component selection to solution design, from manufacturing techniques to control processes, and from reliability verification to performance testing.

This is exactly what Huawei does — ensuring excellence in every last details. For example, to ensure each AP model provides excellent performance and high reliability, Huawei has specified strict indexes for each testing process. It sets the bar 20°C respectively above and below upper and lower temperatures in specifications during component temperature tests. Huawei also uses strict international standards for ElectroMagnetic Compatibility testing, and extends 50% of waterproof testing time based on IP67.

There are many enterprise scenarios with different Wi-Fi solution requirements, but there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution. A surefire route to success is to provide customized solutions based on specific circumstances. For example, in scenarios with a high-density of rooms, such as hotels and schools, Huawei’s Agile Distributed Wi-Fi Solution innovatively transforms the traditional ‘AC + Fit AP’ architecture into ‘AC + central AP + Remote Unit’ distributed architecture. It improves wireless coverage performance and service experience, and simplifies device management and configuration, helping build top-quality and easy-to-manage networks.

Enterprise markets have comprehensive requirements for service capabilities of Wi-Fi vendors. In retail markets, for example, stores would deploy Wi-Fi networks to provide Internet access and build business system platforms. However, these two goals are difficult to accomplish simultaneously due to network resource conflicts. Huawei integrates Bluetooth into APs to provide wireless services and support business applications. This shows Huawei’s full capabilities in technology integration and innovation.

Based on 17-years continued R&D investment in Wi-Fi domain, over 2,000 standards and patents, as well as extensive experience gleaned from serving over 1,000 global industry customers, Huawei provides outstanding service capabilities in terms of network planning and optimization, fast deployment, and simplified O&M.

Huawei consistently puts its customers first and focuses on quality. Carrying this persistence into the fray, Huawei is honored to cooperate with customers from various industries and build excellent and ingenious Wi-Fi networks to help customers achieve business success.
