X-Haul: Building a 5G-Ready Transport Network

Huawei X-Haul provides a full-coverage solution for backhaul and fronthaul. In the backhaul scenario, Huawei released the industry's first 5G router that supports cost-effective 50GE access ring networking and is compatible with 100GE. In the scenario without fiber access, Huawei launches the industry's first 5G microwave solution to achieve 10GE to the site. In the fronthaul scenario, Huawei released the industry's first 100G outdoor WDM, saving 90% fiber resources.

In addition, Huawei X-Haul centrally orchestrates IP, optical, and microwave through the Network Cloud Engine. Based on unified service model, such as Segment Routing/EVPN, is introduced at the device layer, Network Cloud Engine can realize full life-cycle automatic management of the transport network. In addition, the FlexE (flexible Ethernet) technology is used to implement end-to-end network slicing, thereby helping operators quickly innovate new services.
