HNC 2014: Huawei brings new switches based on SDN and NFV targeting IoT

Huawei has unveiled Agile Branch Solution and Agile Gateway series that enables service deployment and simplified operation and maintenance, as well as integration with Big Data, mobile Internet, and the Internet of Things (IoT).

The Chinese network vendor has unveiled Agile Branch Solution and Agile Gateway series at the Huawei Networking Congress 2014 (HNC) in Beijing on May 25.

Huawei has termed the Agile Branch Solution as one its key innovations for 2014.

In addition to addressing problems in branch network deployment, operation, and maintenance, it is the first agile switch to feature zero-touch local maintenance on branch networks.

Huawei said the solution is the first in the industry to be developed based on Software Defined Network (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) converged infrastructure.


The Agile Branch Solution features three technical innovations:

— One-click service deployment: one-click device discovery, centralized delivery of applications and service orchestration.

— Zero-touch local maintenance: zero-delay fault detection, zero-error fault location, and zero-wait fault recovery.

— Open and additional value-add: open applications and networks. The Agile Branch Solution reduces service deployment and O&M workload on enterprise branches. It reduces enterprise total cost of ownership (TCO) and enables enterprises to develop new value-add services.

Yongliang Xie, CEO of Bus Online, said: “Huawei’s Agile Branch Solution implements remote service deployment and centralized management for all of our buses, simplifying our O&M. The ICT convergence design of Huawei’s gateway solution addresses the problem of carrying traditional devices on buses. Moreover, Huawei also provides the user location functionality, which enables precision marketing.”
