BBWF 2011: Huawei to Unveil New Network Strategy

10:30 AM -- The next-generation network architecture waters are set to get either a little bit clearer or a tad murkier next week when Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. unveils its U2Net "solution" at Broadband World Forum.

It's unclear whether Bono is involved.

The vendor's networks CTO, Daniel Tang, will "define next generation network architecture and the way to evolve to the future architecture."

Simultaneously, Huawei will talk about the U2Net concept at the PT/Expo Comm China trade show in Beijing, where the company will explain how its new architecture can help service providers deliver video and cloud services across ubiquitous broadband connections of 20 Mbit/s to 100 Mbit/s.

The Light Reading team may have to pack some extra grey cells to deal with this and get to grips with Nokia Networks 's Liquid Net concept, which sounds like it might be something similar. Then there are all the other broadband-related propositions to check out… (See BBWF 2011: Hot Techs on the Show Floor and NSN Dives Into Liquid Net .)

I just hope there's some good espresso nearby … this all may require an attention span greater than that of a gnat, which is frankly asking a bit much.

Catch up with all the gossip, predictions, beverage-related developments and industry news during the Paris event by checking out our dedicated BBWF show site. You know it makes sense!

Huawei's big idea was just to provide exactly what NSN is promising at half the cost.

It would be better if editor give comment after he fully understood the solution.

Well, I am going to write something once it has been explained to me too, so you get double helpings!!


Whether I will fully understand the proposition or not is another matter...

Did you get a pre-brief on that? :-0

That's true. I think both companies err on the side of being hard to understand so any clarity you can provide would be welcome.
