Compromised User ExperienceTraditional network management is focused on network connection status and faults, but is unable to detect user experience in real time. User experience is increasingly valued by enterprises to boost customer satisfaction and loyalty.
Low Operating EfficiencyMore than 63 percent of networks are still managed manually, and the response to frequent network policy changes is inefficient. End-to-end automation would vastly improve network operating efficiency for enterprises.
Low Level of Network DigitalizationEnterprise digitalization is rapidly gaining momentum, but the network that serves as enterprise ICT infrastructure cannot keep up. Enterprises are looking for greater network digitalization to meet their growing service needs.
Frequent Data Security BreachesIn the digital era, new technologies bring enormous benefits, but also increased data security risks. Now more than ever, enterprises need comprehensive network protection to safeguard their data.
Huawei understands these pain points and believes that, in the future, enterprises will need self-healing networks with “autonomous driving” capabilities. However, the transition from an SDN network to an “autonomous driving” network is a long journey. The biggest problem facing enterprises lies in the huge gap between what businesses need and what networks can offer.
Huawei’s Intent-Driven Network (IDN) is an ideal choice for addressing this problem because it can digitalize enterprise networks, enable service policies to drive network policies, streamline network and service collaboration, and ultimately enable business success.
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 creating “autonomous driving” networks. IDN intelligently understands business intent, with the ability to deploy network services and policies as well as quickly provision new services. IDN has real-time user experience awareness 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 ever greater 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 provides enterprises with solutions tailored to scenarios such as data center, WAN, branch interconnection, and network security, helping them stride towards a fully connected, intelligent world.
Huawei CloudFabric Solution works with Huawei’s Agile Controller to provide customers with next-generation data center networks that use SDN technology to implement fast and flexible solution design, automated network deployment, and intelligent network O&M.
Huawei SDSec Solution enables more intelligent threat detection, threat response, and security operations and maintenance and improves the threat prevention capabilities of enterprise networks and telecom infrastructure, thus increasing security O&M efficiency and reducing O&M costs.
