With the advent of an intelligent society, more governments and enterprise customers choose Huawei's CloudCampus Solution, and in doing so, become intelligent IP pioneers in the digital transformation of industries.
Disruptive digital technologies are reshaping the world, driving all of us into a new era, one defined by pervasive digital technologies and intelligence. Here, campuses — the physical spaces where we spend most of our working lives and leisure time, from office complexes to residential compounds — connect people and things, converging human beings, machines, and events in time. It is, therefore, no surprise that campuses are set to become the fundamental building blocks of the future, intelligent world. Indeed, as digital technologies extend from workspaces to services and production, an unprecedented range of new use cases are emerging, from mobile offices and smart education to smart airports and smart manufacturing.
In this context, smart terminals and devices are proliferating, and most of them need to remain connected and networked around the clock. This is leading to exponential growth in the number of connections and traffic levels on campus networks. And, as more applications are migrated to the cloud, the boundaries of campus networks are being torn down: local connectivity is transforming into global interconnectivity. Furthermore, services in the cloud are in a state of constant flux. Campus networks must be able to match the agility of the cloud, in order to implement unified resource scheduling while ensuring a consistent user experience. Against this backdrop, what kind of campus network is able to meet the digital requirements of today and anticipate those of tomorrow? The answer is clear: an intelligent cloud campus that overcomes spatial limitations and connects everything through the cloud, one that is characterized by intelligence, offering fully wireless access.
Huawei has now evolved its award-winning CloudCampus Solution to a new version: 3.0. This newly upgraded solution builds on Autonomous Driving Network (ADN) architecture and draws on the latest technologies, such as Wi-Fi 6, Software-Defined Networking (SDN), Segment Routing over IPv6 (SRv6), cloud computing, and big data analytics. With this solution, organizations of all shapes and sizes can build campus networks featuring fully wireless access, one global network, cloud management, and intelligent Operations and Maintenance (O&M). Resulting benefits include improved digital operational efficiency, reduced Capital Expenditure (CAPEX), falling Operating Expenditure (OPEX), and optimal connections for enterprise offices, production scenarios, and services.
Simply stated, Huawei's CloudCampus 3.0 Solution facilitates service development and business model innovation across industries. Examples include 4K videoconferencing for governments, Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) immersive teaching in education, Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) for unstaffed warehousing and industrial manufacturing, and Electronic Shelf Labels (ESLs) in retail stores.
To elaborate a little further, traditional campus networks in the education sector are gradually transitioning to boundary-free intelligent campuses. This transition is, in turn, paving the way for educational innovations, from online teaching to virtual interactive classrooms. And with such innovations, more and more talents are cultivated and nurtured through broader and more efficient sharing of educational resources.
Elsewhere, in supermarkets, making price adjustments using conventional paper labels is time-consuming, highly inefficient, costly, and prone to human error. The process is revolutionized, however, by adopting a AirEngine Wi-Fi 6 and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) converged network solution, which introduces ESLs that automatically update prices. This new approach eliminates the high annual costs related to price label management while substantially improving operational efficiency.
Always keeping both current and future business needs in mind, Huawei starts with tailored, top-level designs, focuses on value creation, and teams up with ever growing numbers of customers and partners to continue to explore and implement best practices for digital transformation. Doing so, Huawei contributes to the digital transformation success of organizations worldwide. To date, 253 Fortune Global 500 companies have selected Huawei as their digital transformation partner. And Huawei's CloudCampus 3.0 Solution has already been widely acclaimed in a range of diverse transformation projects, including the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), SONGMICS in Germany, the Bureau of Water Resources in Mexico, SAIC Motor's Ningde factory, and the University Town of Shenzhen.
With a firmly customer-centric approach, Huawei is committed to ongoing innovation, ceaselessly seeking to create additional value for customers. Huawei will continue to work with more and more customers to boost fully wireless, intelligent cloud campus networks and accelerate the industrial digital transformation.
