With the full cloudification of network data storage, rapid development of Internet services, and constant emergence of new services, the traffic growth rate will exceed 50% over the next few years. As the traffic model is usually disordered and complex, more data-intensive traffic emerges, and services become more sensitive to SLA indicators such as delay. These changes drive carriers to pursue Internet-based transformation and converge IT as well as CT to build next-generation backbone networks, posing higher requirements on resource utilization, SLA, and simplified O&M.
Huawei's SDN IP+optical solution reshapes the resource configuration pattern of traditional networks. This solution achieves effective synergy between IP and optical networks through software-based network configuration control, simplifying network O&M while improving network intelligence and automation.
