Three innovations of the most popular network term

  • Detail

With the expansion of enterprise business, whether it is a large and medium-sized domestic enterprise with branches around the world or a multinational enterprise with employees all over the world, it is necessary to build an innovative network structure in the wave of globalization to maintain competitive advantage and increase income and profits. Facing the rise of technology trends such as IOT and cloud computing, as the end of the enterprise network, the branch network has also come to the crossroads of transforming the upstream to connect with aluminum mineral resources

is your network like this

1. The continuous superposition of network devices leads to a long service online time

the applications of branches are increasingly diversified. Enterprises must deploy more complex network devices in branch networks to realize complex functions such as routing, computing, switching, firewall, etc. These continuous superposition of network devices are not only expensive, but also will continue to increase the complexity of the network

after the popularization of mobile terminals, enterprises need to carry out free applications and services anytime and anywhere. Mobile branches have changed from a supplementary branch to one of the mainstream branches, but the deployment of mobile branches is far more complex than that of fixed branches

before the new business goes online, a lot of energy is needed from equipment procurement to network planning, cabling installation and business deployment, and the cycle is often about 30 days. The larger the branch size and the more dispersed the region, the number and diversity of devices will increase, and the business online time cycle will be longer

2. The increase in the number of branches makes the operation and maintenance cost higher and higher

the branch network requires not only switches, routers, wireless APS and other network equipment, but also storage. The other is the storage and server resources of the notice on further clarifying the relevant requirements for fire supervision and management of thermal insulation materials for external walls of civil buildings issued by the Fire Department of the Ministry of public security in 2011. It is just the so-called "sparrow is small, but it has all five internal organs". Great changes have taken place in the form of traditional branches: larger number, more complex business, slow deployment and difficult fault location. For enterprises with hundreds of branches and thousands of devices, if there is no improvement and innovation in management and maintenance, branch maintenance will become a nightmare

some branch networks may not be built by the enterprise itself, but may purchase or lease the resources and services of the operator. In this case, remote maintenance is also a big problem. Many enterprises lack professional IT specialists and need to deploy additional expensive equipment to realize remote management. The operation and maintenance costs are increasing day by day

3. The fixed and closed network structure restricts the innovation of enterprises. In the past two years, the enterprise IT environment has begun to rapidly evolve to the third platform. The integration trend of it and CT is becoming more and more obvious. The branch business is more complex and faster to update. The traditional branch network structure that adds functions by superimposing hardware can no longer keep up with the changes of new business. Enterprises urgently need an application-oriented and business-oriented The flexible expansion of open steel can also customize the layout network structure

your network needs to be changed

under this condition, sdn/nfv has entered the branch field of vision with a new look

n (Software Defined Network) is a new network innovation architecture, which provides a good platform for network and application innovation

v (netwo said that where the experimental machine is, where is the most famous rk function virtualization, network function virtualization), through the use of X86 and other general hardware and virtualization technologies, network functions and hardware devices can be decoupled

when the software definition capability is combined with virtualization technology, the network can be dynamically deployed according to the needs of the business, greatly reducing the construction cost and improving the flexible operation capability

in order to comply with the development trend of the industry and meet the challenges faced by the enterprise business in the development process, Huawei launched the agile branch solution

Huawei agile branch solution

Huawei agile branch solution adopts a two-tier architecture: agile switch and agile controller

1. Agile gateway applies virtualization technology to realize the deep integration of it+ct. One gateway not only supports multiple CT functions such as routing, switching and voice, but also supports dynamic loading of IT applications

2. As the brain of agile network, agile controller centralizes the control of all resources, and realizes the automation and dynamic allocation of network resources for users and applications, so as to make the network serve the business more nimbly

agile branch solution applies Huawei's agile concept to branch networks to help branch networks solve a series of problems such as deployment, operation and maintenance. What value can this innovative solution bring to customers

1. Virtualization architecture: the business goes online from several weeks to several minutes

the agile branch solution adopts sdn/nfv virtualization architecture design to realize software defined network nodes. CPE, FW, WOC and other network nodes can be redefined according to business requirements. Huawei ar1000v is an nfv based virtual router that can run on VM (virtual machine) instances, integrating traditional routing, switching, security, VPN, QoS and other functions. When an enterprise needs to increase business, it can realize function distribution on demand by dynamically adjusting virtual machine resources and licenses, eliminating complex procedures such as on-site installation by special personnel, accelerating the rapid launch of business, and shortening the deployment time to a few minutes

2. Centralized and unified operation and maintenance, reducing operation and maintenance costs by 70%

under the intelligent management of agile controllers, the branch network has changed from the traditional single point manual configuration to the full collaborative configuration, truly achieving the one click deployment of a large number of devices, and liberating the enterprise operation and maintenance management. Agile controller redefines the network with business experience as the center, helping users focus more on their own business and experience from only focusing on the network and devices. The whole equipment provides location information opening based on GIS, which makes the network health clear at a glance and greatly simplifies the cost of network maintenance

3. Multi level opening to accelerate enterprise business innovation

agile branch solutions provide flexible and scalable application integration capabilities for enterprises through the opening of equipment, networks, applications and other levels

agile customs can easily realize dynamic loading of local businesses based on sdn/nfv technology

agile controller provides standard northbound restful interface, API and esdk, which can quickly integrate with third-party value-added services

the openness of network users and location information facilitates big data analysis, optimizes business models, and accelerates enterprise business innovation

the agile branch is now ready. Is your network ready

the explosive growth of Internet services has penetrated into every corner of the enterprise. Huawei's agile branch solution has achieved large-scale commercial use in transportation, telecommunications, enterprises, government, education and other industries, helping many enterprises achieve rapid business innovation and go online, preparing for new application departments, and protecting the enterprise's network investment
