On Day One of the Huawei Middle East Digital Transformation Webinar 2020, held virtually, Huawei, announced the launch of new star products and flagship solutions for the Middle East: the new series of AirEngine Wi-Fi 6 and the Huawei CloudCampus solution. Held under the theme “Hi, Intelligent World”, the webinar previewed five trends of an intelligent world 10 years’ from now and proposed a foundation built on new types of connectivity, computing, platform, and ecosystem that will enable the intelligent development of a wide variety of industries.
Alaa ElShimy, MD & SVP, Enterprise Business Group, Huawei Middle East, said, “Technology is increasingly more present and essential in our lives, especially given the current situation the world is facing. Reliable, secure, and seamless connectivity is crucial in order to keep everyone connected to the people and things that matter the most, whether that is doctors, family, friends, schools or work. That is why we are thrilled to officially launch our latest solutions in the Middle East, which will contribute towards bringing digital to every person, home, and organization, for a fully connected, intelligent world.”
The newly launched products and solution are aimed at transforming enterprise campus networks. With its leading advantages in 5G, optical networking, Internet Protocol (IP) networking, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies, Huawei implements collaborative innovation across technological domains, allowing technological evolution and business development to go along side by side to drive customer success in the journey of digital transformation.
Alaa Bawab, VP, Enterprise Networking, Huawei Middle East, said, “Digital technologies are reshaping the world around us and it is more important than ever before to implement the latest solutions to ensure continued and reliable connectivity. Campuses are the cornerstone of a digital world, where most of the innovation takes place. With the new products and solution launched today, Huawei aims to satisfy customer needs for high-speed, fully wireless and intelligent networks that will accelerate the digital transformation of enterprise campuses.”
Enterprise campus networks are facing challenges such as poor access experience, high energy consumption, and slow service innovation. The Huawei CloudCampus solution has three features to address these challenges:
- Huawei introduces 5G RF technologies, 5G algorithms such as multi-system co-scheduling, Smart Antenna and software-defined radio access network, and 5G networking concepts into the IP field. Powered by 5G and IP, Huawei’s AirEngine Wi-Fi 6 provides the world’s fastest, most stable and always-on 100 Mbit/s networking experience. The AirEngine Wi-Fi 6 features 10 Gbit/s peak throughput rate, 10ms latency, and a coverage radius that exceeds the industry standard by 20%. This high-quality, fully wireless campus network access solution is superior to the traditional wired plus wireless campus network access model.
- The Campus OptiX network solution enables fully optical campus network connections through an IP plus POL architecture. Not only does it share the advantages of flexible capacity, powerful service processing, service automation, and intelligent O&M with IP networking, but also integrates the favorable features of optical technology in energy-saving, simplicity, and high efficiency. This makes the solution particularly suitable for airports, educational institutions, hotels, offices, and other campus scenarios. According to the comprehensive network solution evaluation by Ovum, Huawei’s IP plus POL solution massively outperforms the traditional layered switching campus solutions.
- The Huawei Horizon Digital Platform upgrades campus services from traditional single-scenario intelligence to overall campus intelligence. IMOC and NCE is an intelligent O&M solution for smart campuses. It is intelligent and open, and is capable of full-stack monitoring, which improves resource usage by 20%, enhances user experience by 15%, boosts O&M efficiency by 30%, and shortens the fault location time from hours to minutes.
Huawei has launched the AirEngine 8700, AirEngine 6700, and AirEngine 5700 series to cover all indoor and outdoor application scenarios. The air interface rate of the AirEngine 8760 reaches 10.75 Gbit/s, twice as much as the industry’s next best offering. This is the world’s first Wi-Fi product that has an air interface rate of over 10 Gbit/s, setting a new benchmark for Wi-Fi 6 performance.
The revolutionary product can significantly improve network experience in various scenarios, such as high-density access (such as offices, conference rooms, stadiums, terminal buildings, and train stations), HD video applications (such as VR/AR teaching and 4K/8K videoconferencing), campus mobile production (such as AGV robots), IoT+Wi-Fi converged access (such as shopping malls, supermarkets, and smart campuses), and outdoor public network services (such as town squares and streets).
