Broadband World Forum 2013: Huawei showcases new solutions

It was a busy time for Chinese telecom equipment vendor Huawei at  Broadband World Forum 2013 in Ansterdam.

Huawei showcased its key SoftCOM achievements and solutions that can be applied to all fields of carrier networks at the Broadband World Forum 2013.

In the network OSS and Service field, Huawei launched the core component of its software-defined networking (SDN) solution and its SDN/network functions virtualization (NFV) orchestration and management system — NetMatrix.

NetMatrix enables E2E inter-controller orchestration, SDN and traditional network orchestration, and network and DC resource orchestration. In addition, NetMatrix adjusts and optimizes network resources intelligently based on real-time network traffic so that network resources can be distributed on demand.

Furthermore, it provides E2E abstracted service capabilities by shielding complicated network technology and device differences among vendors, which simplifies operations support systems (OSS) integration.

In the IP field, Huawei launched its Carrier-Class SDN Controller-SNC that helps carriers rapidly deploy SDN networks, reduce operating expenses, deploy new services quickly, and accelerate service innovation.

The controller runs an SDN network in a centralized manner, such as centralized service chain control, centralized cloud data center network control, centralized E2E QoS policy control, and provide path optimization to improve the whole network resources utilization, etc.

Huawei’s SNC features separate forwarding and control planes, centralized network control, and multi-layer openness and programmability, delivering all the benefits promised by SDN. The SNC is based on an advanced resilient distributed framework (RDF) and supports unlimited control and management scalability with multiple function modules to serve end-to-end SDN scenarios on one platform.

Under the theme of BOOST, Unleash the Power of Ultra-Broadband, Huawei also demonstrated its capabilities in ultra-broadband technologies.

BOOST is built around four basic elements: Engage, Broadband Salami, On-demand, Synergy, and is also based on the core concept of Internetized ecosystem supported by the future network evolution.
