CloudWAN 3.0 Upgrades to Improve Digital Productivity with Agile Connectivity.
Digital Transformation Is Changing WANs
As digital transformation continues to spread across industries, Wide Area Networks (WANs) have to change, to embrace enterprise cloudification and transform Internet Protocol (IP)-based production networks.
• Indeed, by 2025, it's estimated that 85% of enterprise applications will migrate to the cloud, with 74% of enterprises choosing private clouds over hybrid models.
• As such, given the maturity of IP technologies — such as Service Routing over IPv6 (SRv6) and Flexible Ethernet (FlexE) — allied to the flexible deployment and converged transport advantages of IP networks, services that used to be carried by multiple Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) production networks can now be carried over a single IP network, slashing Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for enterprises.
Distributed deployment of financial services and downward movement of mainframes lead to the evolution of data centers from a two-city three-center architecture to a multi-cloud multi-center architecture. Internet finance is gradually becoming the main sales channel of financial services, and eco-banking services are booming. As banks pose higher requirements on automation and intelligence, the access and core networks start to adopt SRv6. NCE-IP orchestrates cloud DCNs from multiple data centers and branch networks based on a modular architecture, allowing these networks to communicate over a single WAN. With simplified network protocols, this solution enables agile E2E financial service provisioning within minutes, resource pooling, multi-center service collaboration, and nearby access to active-active services, improving user experience.
Amid global digital transformation efforts, individual and enterprise services are moving to the cloud at an accelerated rate, and traffic continues to surge. As a result, enterprise private lines have to meet increasingly higher SLA requirements. This solution aims to centrally carry home broadband and private line services. It uses advanced technologies such as SDN, SRv6, slicing, and IFIT to build IP converged transport networks featuring ultra-broadband, guaranteed SLAs, and intelligent O&M.
We are moving toward the digital society at an accelerated pace. Many countries have released national policies to drive the digital transformation of governments and lead the development of the digital society, where governments provide online offices for their employees internally and serve nationwide citizens and enterprises externally. Network coverage sweeps across entire countries to meet network connection requirements of government agencies and citizens. Upgraded government network functions continuously supply applications, data, and computing power in the cloud to everything. This solution uses industry-leading SRv6, FlexE, and intelligent O&M technologies to build next-generation national converged backbone networks that feature "multi-service transport, fast cloud access, one-click O&M, and one-stop converged transport".
The power data network provides wide-area interconnection and unified transport for data centers, dispatch centers, substations, and power supply companies at all levels. Facing the trend of cloud-based services and all-domain IoT, this solution provides the IPv6 Enhanced-based unified architecture for building intelligent and simplified power data networks featuring efficient cloud-network synergy, visualized O&M, and experience assurance to meet the requirements of various new service scenarios, such as large-scale construction of Three Clouds for electric power, unmanned inspection of substations, digital twinning, and renewable energy integration and dispatching.
As digital transformation gains momentum in the transportation industry, large-scale video networking, HD surveillance, real-time scheduling and decision-making, and more pose higher requirements on network security and reliability, driving the transportation production network to evolve to a converged and secure system. This solution helps build a secure, reliable, intelligent, and agile converged transport production network for the transportation industry. It uses FlexE slicing to ensure 5G-R production services, SRv6 to support flexible transport and elastic deployment of office services, and iMaster NCE + IFIT-based big data mining to provide proactive O&M, improving transportation security, efficiency, and experience.
With the development of "Internet + government", "Internet + audit", "Internet + social governance", digital government, and smart society, and the reshaping of the government digitalization architecture resulting from this, it is inevitable that government networks will evolve towards intensive construction and converged service transport. To meet the requirements of various government applications, this solution leverages the leading IPv6 Enhanced architecture to build next-generation "digital government" networks that feature high speed, intensive sharing, hierarchical assurance, high security, high reliability, and future readiness. Such a network can fully cover government services at various levels to effectively solve the last-mile connectivity problem and replace siloed private networks with one transport network that features unified standards, advanced technologies, intelligent management, and high security and reliability.
As enterprises pose higher requirements on automation and intelligence, the access and core networks start to adopt SRv6. NCE orchestrates different networks and provides multi-domain network services for the upper layer. With simplified network protocols, one WAN is sufficient for various services.
