Carrier Cloud & Network Synergy to Boost Enterprise Business Experience

Studies have shown that 91% of new software in the next 5 years will be applicable to cloud computing. Data center’s network traffic will grow dramatically. The cloud service market is predicted to be worth more than 3 trillion US dollars by the year 2020. Various enterprises focusing on network, software, infrastructure and cloud computing are now entering the cloud service market. A number of world-leading telcos have positioned B2B cloud service as a strategic growth engine.

Huawei issued white paper ” Carrier Cloud & Network Synergy to Boost Enterprise Business Experience”, by analyzing typical enterprise application scenarios, such as video, e-commerce, enterprise key data retrieval and backup, the whitepaper points out that the true value of cloud services is in fact, an integral part of the whole network. 

Cloud computing can support enterprises by upgrading their IT applications, lowering IT costs, increasing agility in business and achieving economies of scale. However, network bandwidth and quality must not be left behind as an afterthought but built into the architecture from the start as they are the key factors that will affect applications’ performance, especially those that are time sensitive. Compared to most cloud service providers, telcos’ network is not a public network, but a E2E network under scrutinous management—a significant advantage for both network bandwidth and quality. 

The whitepaper also points out that telcos have the ability to provide professional services and different cloud service experiences, cultivate enterprise customers’ understanding and acceptance to “pay more for the experience” and to increase customer loyalty. Through the cloud services which collaborate with the network, telcos are able to manage and operate the internal network of data centers, their global network, their edge-computing network, as well as the data center’s cloud resources. This interaction between the cloud services and the network enables the data centers to calculate, store and collect the resources needed and distribute them anytime, anywhere as well as to achieve one-stop ICT resources auto-deployment and intelligent optimization. By doing so, the telco is capable to fine-tune the resource adjustment process, improve the network efficiency of enterprise cloud services and ensure the best customer experiences.
