Xiao Feng, NFV Marketing Director of Huawei Cloud Core Network product line, said, "To meet industry digital transformation trends, Huawei proactively promotes the All Cloud strategy, to help network operators build efficient and agile networks. Meanwhile, Huawei will construct an open industry ecosystem on all-cloud networks, to promote beneficial mutual cooperation between NFV players."

Huawei NFV solution features cloudified architecture, fast delivery, smart operation, and service innovation. It promotes network upgrades, enables digital transformation of the industry, and helps operators win business success by fulfilling subscriber requirements.

Cloudified architecture: Providing carrier-class service assurance and agile service deployment.

With the use of an all-cloud architecture, the NFV solution provides inter-regional resource sharing and smooth cross-DC service handover, and supports virtual data center (DC) establishment within minutes. The NFV solution makes one-click service deployment and automatic IT device resource management a reality for carriers. It also raises average O&M efficiency by 40%.

Fast delivery: Full integration and O&M capabilities accelerate commercial cloud network construction.

Huawei’s NFV solution provides fast integration of multi-vendor hardware and software and shortens cloud network deployment time, to support fast NFV delivery. Huawei has built three NFV Open Labs worldwide to conduct verifications and tests for multi-vendor hardware and software interworking.

Smart operation: Providing automatic and intelligent O&M after network cloudification.

Huawei NFV solution uses innovative technologies, performance assessment tools, and end-to-end (E2E) fault demarcation and location tools to ensure network agility and intelligent O&M after cloudification. The innovative technologies include service KPI-based health check and self-healing, intelligent message queue flow control, and coordination and orchestration on resource pools of different platforms. With these technologies and tools, faults can be rectified and services can be stored immediately.

Service innovation: An open network platform accelerates TTM and promotes service innovation.

The application integration capability provided by Huawei NFV solution facilitates new service development as easy as software installation on a Windows OS, thus greatly shortening third-party service time to market (TTM). The network capability open platform defined in the NFV solution opens up telecommunications network information and other capabilities to third parties, giving birth to a large number of services

As of the third quarter of 2016, Huawei has deployed more than 90 commercial cloud networks worldwide. In the future, Huawei will be devoted to building a more open, creative, and healthier industry ecosystem and cooperate with partners to create more services and business value.
