Huawei held its annual Global Analyst Summit 2019 on April 16 – 18. During the event, the tech giant announced its new brand strategy for IP networking. It also unveiled four new engine series products for the IP network in the smart era.
Kevin Hu, President of Huawei Data Communication Product Line, made the announcement of the company’s latest brand strategy for IP networking. The new strategy was necessitated by projections that with the advent of 5G, cloud, and AI, hundreds of billions of production and office terminals will collaborate and unite with each other, and the entire enterprise services will migrate to the cloud. With AI adoption expected to reach an estimated 86 percent by 2025, it is expected that there will be many potential security issues to be addressed. The company believes that the intelligent IP networks built with the four-engine series products can continuously empower users with business intelligence.
The four new engine series products for the IP network are AirEngine, CloudEngine, NetEngine, and HiSecEngine. Here’s how Huawei describes them;
AirEngine: Huawei first Wi-Fi 6 commercial product builds on 5G strengths of Huawei. It has passed the highest performance verification of the Tolly Group, an international authoritative test organization. Huawei 5G smart antenna and intelligent application acceleration technologies increase the Wi-Fi coverage area by 50 percent, shorten the Wi-Fi network latency to 10 milliseconds, and achieve an optimal mobile experience.
CloudEngine: Huawei’s embedded AI chip and unique AI algorithm enable zero packet loss and the fastest forwarding performance in the industry, successfully leading data centre networks into the AI era. Huawei campus switches stand out with the highest forwarding performance, and they build on AI-powered application identification and dynamic network algorithms to build a packet loss-free, high-quality campus network. The distributed AI O&M architecture can reduce fault identification from minutes to seconds, shorten automatic fault location from hours to minutes, and reduce OPEX by 40 percent.
NetEngine: Huawei NetEngine intelligent metro routers have the largest capacity in the industry, are SRv6 ready, and offer full-lifecycle intelligent automation. With NetEngine, one network can carry B2B, B2C, and B2H services. It provides intelligent connections and application-level SLA assurance for many vertical industry applications, building a solid digital foundation for the 5G era. Huawei next-generation NetEngine AR6000 series SD-WAN routers use a brand-new architecture and are designed with rich hardware acceleration engines and unique Ultra-Fast forwarding algorithms, improving SD-WAN performance to three times the industry average. All these merits make them ideal WAN edge routers with the fastest speeds and optimal experiences.
HiSecEngine: Based on core concepts of Huawei’s HiSec security solution, this high-performance network security engine accurately identifies unknown threats to ensure always-on core services. It provides an intelligent defence system to protect the fully connected, digital world.
