Gartner predicts that, by 2019, 83% of enterprises around the world will migrate their core businesses to enterprise digital platforms, and enterprises will need to improve user experience through digitization. Also, the widespread use of AI technology blurs the social division of labor between people and machines, and enterprises will need to improve operation efficiency through digitization. In the digital era, data security is critical to enterprises and is even a matter of sink or swim for them. Enterprises need comprehensive network protection to ensure enterprise data security. As various industries accelerate their digitization, networks that serve as the ICT infrastructure of enterprises are not digitized as expected. More than 63% of networks are still managed manually, and over 70% of major network faults are caused by human error.
Huawei’s Intent-Driven Network (IDN), based on the simplified, ultra-broadband network infrastructure, achieves more widespread access and simpler management. A digital twin is used to build a digital world, enabling technologies such as AI to be applied in the network field and realizing “autonomous driving” networks. IDN intelligently understands business intent, based on which it implements automatic deployment of network services and policies as well as quickly provisioning new services. IDN achieves real-time awareness of user experience and automatic optimization, ensuring high-quality experience for user services. Based on the joint innovation with NetCity, Huawei has achieved the rapid integration of IDN with numerous industry applications and cloud platforms, supporting more extensive industry innovation. Due to the constant migration of enterprise data and services to the cloud, enterprises are attaching more importance to security. In response, Huawei IDN provides proactive security defense services – which are accessible on demand – to implement end-to-end intelligent security threat detection and disposal.
Huawei IDN will provide enterprise with solutions tailored to scenarios such as data center, WAN, branch interconnection, and network security, helping them stride towards a fully connected, intelligent world.
