[Shenzhen, China, September 25, 2021] At HUAWEI CONNECT 2021, Huawei unveiled four new upgrades of its CloudCampus 3.0 Solution: all-new Wi-Fi 6 APs, "Solar System" campus switches, enterprise-class "cloud on-ramp" converged gateways, and intelligent operations and maintenance (O&M) practices. Huawei also shed light on a future-proof Wi-Fi 6 Advanced technology framework oriented for wireless production networks.
These upgrades reaffirm Huawei's continuous focus on experience-centric campus networks. With such networks, enterprises will benefit from premium fully-wireless access and optimal cloud access in a wide range of scenarios — such as intelligent workplaces, intelligent buildings, and intelligent production — all accelerating the digitalization of industries.

Enterprises around the world are increasingly recognizing the importance of digital transformation. In order to accelerate their digital transformation, more enterprises are investing heavily in cutting-edge network technologies — including IoT, wireless, cloud, and AI.
Moreover, access users and devices continue to proliferate on the campus network. According to IDC's forecast, there will be 41 billion connected IoT devices and over 14 billion connected non-IoT devices globally by 2025. Meanwhile, cloudification is a growing trend among enterprises looking to deploy digital services. Gartner predicts that more than 85% of enterprises services will be deployed on the cloud in 2025.
"In the era where all things are getting connected intelligently, ubiquitous high-quality connections are crucial to enterprises' business intelligence and also foundational for their digital services," said Dr. Li Xing, President of the Campus Network Domain, Huawei's Data Communication Product Line. "While ‘diving into digital’, each enterprise needs to build an experience-centric campus network that connects people and all things as well as office and production applications. Only then can enterprises accelerate industrial digitization."
To accelerate digital transformation for enterprises, Huawei's CloudCampus 3.0 Solution is equipped with new features in four aspects: wireless, wired, WAN interconnection, and intelligent O&M.
In the past few years, Wi-Fi 6 — the latest wireless access technology noted for its higher bandwidth and larger user density — has gained popularity in enterprise markets. But it still cannot fully meet the demands for ultra-low latency of less than 10 ms, ultra-high reliability of 99.999%, ultra-large bandwidth of over 2 Gbps, and strong security.
To meet these demands, Huawei went beyond Wi-Fi 6 through continuous innovation, and launched a future-proof Wi-Fi 6 Advanced technology framework, extending Wi-Fi from enterprise workplaces into production environments. This latest iteration builds on the large capacity, low latency, and wide connectivity features of Wi-Fi 6, adding three unique capabilities: network-wide gigabit, real-time intelligent control, and harmonized IoT and sensing.
Looking ahead, Huawei will continue to work with more industry ecosystem partners to develop WLAN solutions based on Wi-Fi 6 Advanced technology architecture. Doing so will help build a speedy, stable, and smart wireless production network best suited for production and digital services such as machine vision, remote operations, and robotics.
Huawei hosts HUAWEI CONNECT 2021 online from September 23 to October 31. The theme of this year's event is Dive into Digital. We're going to dive deep into the practical application of technologies like cloud, AI, and 5G in all industries, and how they can make organizations of all shapes and sizes more efficient, more versatile, and ultimately more resilient as we move towards economic recovery.
