Huawei unveils next-generation network architecture for IP Video and Cloud era

Huawei, a global information and communications
technology (ICT) solutions provider, introduced its ubiquitous ultra-broadband
network architecture (U2Net).



U2Net is a next-generation network architecture for IP
video and cloud applications that is specially adapted to meet the demands of
the two major evolutions in broadband networks: video service evolution from
IPTV to IP video, and the integration of services to the cloud.



Enormous changes in network traffic services are taking
place as OTT (over-the-top) video and other carrier-operated Internet video
services transition from IPTV to IP video.



As applications are integrated into the cloud, the
architecture of underlying networks must undergo drastic changes in order to
provide services and meet the associated growing demand for cloud-based



The traditional network architecture for IPTV services is
not able to meet these new demands.



Based on its cache and software definition, U2Net
actually strengthens the flexibility of networks to adapt to new services. With
the help of probes and other controls, U2Net can provide streamlined management
and adaptable operations and maintenance for networks.



As an increasing number of people throughout the world
gain access to the Internet, bandwidth will inevitably become a necessary
utility very much like water, electricity, or natural gas. U2Net will define
next-generation network architecture for the IP video and cloud era, and it
will lay the groundwork for broadband access that is available to everyone,
everywhere,” said Zha Jun, president, Huawei Network Product Line.



Recently, Huawei and China Telecom announced the
deployment of 100G WDM system. The system establishes an ultra-broadband transport link
between metropolitan hubs Nanjing and Wuxi in the Jiangsu province of the
Yangtze River Delta.
