Telco Cloud

Telco Cloud Solution

— Continuous Evolution Based on Telco Cloud-Native

Over the past decade, the telco industry has witnessed the rapid development of cloudification. And during the process, VM-based deployments have helped industry players gain tremendous business success. Against this backdrop, telco cloud has become one of the most important infrastructures for mobile communications. In particular, with the advent of 5.5G, container-based deployment is regarded as a main direction for operators as they seek to develop cloud-based networks. With an open as well as converged architecture, Huawei telco cloud serves as a streamlined cloud platform oriented for carrier-grade cloud native capabilities and diverse compute resources, powering fully cloudified, fully connected, and super-distributed telecom services in the 5.5G era.

Solution Features

6 3

Dual-engine: The uncertain evolution pace is counteracted with a deterministic architecture.

Dual-engine: OpenStack + Kubernetes, allowing flexible deployment of VMs, VM containers, bare metal containers as well as bare metal servers to support convergent 4G/5G network evolution, unified resource management, and enhancement for telco requirements.

5 1

Agile: Intelligent and simple O&M automates the whole process.

Automatic O&M: Services recover from faults in seconds through fault isolation and self-healing; related information is collected in a click for fast cross-layer fault locating; batch NFVI upgrades do not interrupt services; and faulty parts can be replaced with just one click, halving replacement time.

Automatic delivery: The automatic network design-deployment-test tool chain provides end-to-end continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD), SDN enables intra-DC and inter-DC network communications, and 5G slices can be rolled out in just hours.


Carrier-grade: Carrier-grade stability and performance are achieved on the basis of cloud native.

Cloud Native: Microservices and containers are supported to implement fast 5G service rollout and innovation.

Smooth evolution: The Cloud Native-based 5G architecture is ready for a seamless evolution to 5G SA networks.


Open: Open applications and hardware are provided through collaboration with open source projects.

Open applications and hardware: The solution provides community-compatible APIs and interfaces to incorporate applications and accommodates mainstream third-party COTS hardware.

Open-source collaboration: Huawei is one of the top contributors in the OpenStack community, and actively synchronizes the latest community release to Huawei FusionSphere OpenStack. Besides, as a founding member of CNCF, Huawei ranks No.1 in Asia by committed code. Kubernetes capabilities are provided through FusionStage.
