Huawei's universal computing gateway AR650 won the Good Design award
The AR650 was developed and designed by Huawei's own engineers, and is one of the major parts of the Huawei SD-WAN solution. It is designed to provide enterprises with on-demand interconnection between branches and branches, between branches and data centers, and between the branches and the cloud. Through application-based intelligent path selection, intelligent acceleration, an open service platform, and cloud-based visualized O&M, it builds WAN interconnection with ultimate experience. The universal computing gateway supports installation of Huawei and third-party virtualized network functions (VNFs). One device can provide multiple services in a branch, allowing VASs to be obtained in minutes. This solves the issue of enterprise service deployment being slow and inflexible.
Good Design Award Judging Panel gave the following evaluation of Huawei's universal computing gateway AR650: "This is designed for fast-growing market of general-purpose wireless terminal access equipment (CPE) for small and medium enterprises, install the desktop, wall, rack and other different scenes users need to. It is the next generation image of Huawei's access router, using the brand's new device design language, emphasizing "performance", with simple, pure black box weakened "shape", but the use of red lines and corporate logo to maintain consistency. It uses software and hardware separation of the technical path, so that users can install different products in the virtual network function (VNF), and supports scalable hard disk and LTE interface."
