Networking for a Cloud-Centric Future

Kicking off the Huawei Asia Pacific IP Club Carnival 2021, Kevin Hu, President of Huawei’s Datacom Product Line, highlighted the rising importance of data communication as it forms the foundation in building a digital society.

“We find that the data communication industry is undergoing a great change. With the acceleration of enterprise services, migration from the local to the cloud, OA and OT are gradually migrated from local servers to the cloud. The service-carrying IP networks are changing. So, IP networks need to ensure service experience and reliability after enterprise services are migrated to the cloud”, explained Kevin.

Throughout the three-day online event, Huawei Asia Pacific IP Club Carnival 2021 explored how data communication solutions accelerate digital transformation across industries, helping them build digital resilience in the new normal.


Network architecture changes from connection-centric to cloud-centric when applications and services migrate from local servers to the cloud. This enables terminals on the access network to evolve from the traditional, fixed-line PCs to much more mobile IoT terminals. Such changes revolutionise the IP network, improving connection attributes and expanding the connection scope.

Adding on to the conversation, Kevin said, “We hope our solutions solve various network problems during digital transformation and continuously bring more valuable IP connections to customers through continuous technical innovation and practice”.

As business production becomes more digitalised, what organisations need from their networking infrastructure is no longer "just" a good or stable connection. Mark Wu, Senior Solution Director Marketing & Solution Sales Department of Huawei’s Enterprises BG, mentioned that Huawei is looking to define more and more advanced features for networking, such as the ability to provide an intelligent experience to build network models, detect and analyse network status in real-time, and understand network resource usage. He added that Huawei can provide a much better way for organisations to communicate with the cloud, which he referred to as “cloud link”.

“It will provide more efficient bandwidth, more secure architecture and an easier way for your business, for your terminals to link to the cloud”, explained Mark. He further mentioned that Huawei is looking to provide a lossless network that can support high-performance computing capabilities required by advanced applications such as AI.

Mark also highlighted four Huawei Intelligent IP solutions that will drive digital transformation for various industries:

  • AirEngine: Accelerates enterprises’ digital transformation journey by building a fully connected, all-wireless office and cloud campus network with unprecedented levels of office, production and service experience.
  • CloudEngine: Designed to build intelligent and lossless data centre networks for the AI era.
  • NetEngine: Supports intelligent traffic steering based on policies such as latency and bandwidth for applications and tenants on the cloud, allowing on-demand scheduling of network resources and guaranteeing SLAs for different services.
  • HiSecEngine: Proactively defend against network threats, enhance border detection capabilities, effectively defend against advanced threats and resolve performance deterioration problems.

During the event, Huawei also highlighted its CloudCampus Solution along with other Data Center Network (DCN) and CloudWAN (Wide Area Network) products and solutions – each one designed to address real-world challenges of traditional enterprises and accelerate digital transformation, while supporting the move towards IP intelligence.

Associate Professor Dr Vuttipon Tarateeraseth of Thailand's Srinakharinwirot University (SWU) shared the challenges faced by the renowned institution and how Huawei’s solutions have helped to solve a range of key issues. One challenge was the big data issue: Here, a Huawei data centre helped to bring down the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) as well as support the development of other solutions in the future. The implementation of a Huawei wireless campus has helped the university centralise network management, using software-defined technology, as well as providing full network coverage for students, in turn improving the quality of their education.

Through close collaboration, Huawei and its partners will look to continue to provide more intelligent IP network solutions for enterprises, driving success in the digital era.
