SHANGHAI -- Huawei launched the first full-scenario Agile Controller 3.0 (AC 3.0) in the industry at HUAWEI CONNECT 2016.
The AC 3.0 focuses on four business scenarios (enterprise campus, data center network, WAN, and IoT) and provides capabilities such as on-demand network resource pool reservation,, automatic deployment, intelligent optimization and bandwidth adjustment on-demand for enterprise customers across campuses, carriers and data center networks. This can improve the resource scheduling efficiency of enterprise cloud services, improving the network efficiency for carrier customers and providing the best customer experience possible.
Huawei advocates an ‘All Cloud’ strategy and provides cloud-based products and solutions to help customers achieve digital transformation in their operations.
"We believe that the core of network cloudification is to construct a network using software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV), helping carriers upgrade the ROADS experience of telecommunication services on hard pipes and providing new services such as the public cloud, private cloud, hybrid cloud, and cloud private line," said Liu Shaowei, President of Huawei Enterprise Networking Product Line.
The SDN solution based on the AC 3.0 assists carriers in establishing e-commercial network operation platforms to achieve top speed service provisioning and on-demand value-added service customization, building agile and open networks on demand, accelerating digital transformation and adding pipe values.
The SDN solution helps enterprises complete their digital transformation by focusing on agility, intelligence and changing networks from a support system to a production system, which improves enterprise operation efficiency and reduces labor costs.
"We believe the Agile Controller 3.0 will make networks more agile, and will mean that we can collaborate with partners to help customers achieve business success and win-win outcomes for all," said Huang He, General Manager of Huawei SDN Controller Domains.
The AC 3.0 is the ‘Super Brain’ of networks and enables service innovation in the cloud era. It supports unified control and flexible deployment in multiple business scenarios and meets the requirements of various service deployments and Operations and Maintenance (O&M), meeting the requirements of industry-leading data centers and the commercial deployment of super-large networks.
Based on the open ONOS platform, the AC 3.0 uses an application which has loosely coupled architecture and can be integrated with ODL and provides abundant northbound API capabilities.
Huawei SDN 2.0 provides for comprehensive developer communities, remote labs and innovation tools. At HUAWEI CONNECT 2016, Huawei launched nine open network capabilities and 72 API interfaces, implementing one-time integration for applications and partners and realizing rapid innovation.
Huawei has participated in more than 200 projects in SDN domains with carriers and enterprises. This included projects with Telefonica, China Mobile, China Telecom, China Unicom, Telia, Tencent, Alibaba, China Construction Bank, China Southern Power Grid Company Limited and Vision China Media.
The full-scenario AC 3.0 can meet the requirements of both service and business diversity as well as multi-path technologies, maximizing network efficiency, monetizing pipe values, and promoting digital and intelligent society service innovation.
