Beyond SDN, ADN Enables Full-Lifecycle Intelligence
Data Center Autonomous Driving Network
The digital economy has become a key driving force for global economic growth. But as digital industries emerge and enterprise digital transformation deepens, higher requirements are placed on DCNs. For example, DCNs need to support rapid service innovation and elastic network expansion with faster speeds and higher intelligence.
In 2021, Huawei's L3 data center autonomous driving network achieved high automation on single-vendor networks.
In 2022, Huawei launched the L3.5 data center autonomous driving network solution, which provides full-lifecycle intelligence capabilities, such as undifferentiated management of multi-cloud and multi-vendor networks, flexible orchestration and collaboration, simulation and verification, risk prediction, and unified O&M of applications and networks. The solution can also work with customers' IT management systems to form an automation process, implementing easy deployment, O&M, and evolution.
In 2023, Huawei's L3.5 autonomous driving DCN solution undergoes an epoch-making upgrade towards L3.5+. This upgraded solution is equipped with brand-new, future-oriented capabilities, such as digital map, providing ultimate O&M experience for applications and multi-cloud networks.
Huawei's CloudFabric 3.0 Hyper-Converged DCN Solution provides full-lifecycle automation and intelligent O&M capabilities for DCNs. The first solution to offer L3.5 autonomous driving network capabilities, it supports cross-cloud service provisioning in seconds and heterogeneous network management, facilitating agile innovation of enterprise services.
The solution consists of the intelligent network management and control system iMaster NCE and CloudEngine data center switches.
Data Center Switches
CloudEngine data center switches — Ethernet switches widely used in diverse applications and in different network sizes, in both data centers and high-end campus networks — feature network scaling, automation, programmability, and real-time visibility.
iMaster NCE-Fabric is a network automation and intelligence platform integrating management, control, analysis, and AI functions, to efficiently translate business intent into configurations and policies for the physical network.
Huawei iMaster NCE-FabricInsight is an intelligent analysis platform oriented to data center networks. Based on big data analysis technologies, it provides users with ubiquitous network application analysis and visualized presentation to eliminate the boundary between applications and networks.
