Huawei AI dual track: 5G and cloud eras will be split separately

Since last year, facing the dual track of network simplification and cloud and AI, Huawei has carried out structural reforms to the R&D organization, dividing the wireless, access network, transmission network, core network, and data communication into separate segments. On May 20, Kevin Hu, President of Huawei’s Data Communication Product Line, told reporters at Huawei’s 17th Global Analyst Conference that with the advent of the era of 5G, cloud and AI, digital transformation of enterprises is facing huge challenges.

Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei once told reporters in a previous interview, “4G can reach 300 to 400 megabits, which is enough to watch 8K TV. However, our network is only 20 to 30 megabits open during the day, and we can only watch 4K. Watching 8K TV. Why? Bad network structure.”

“The problem of network structure has not been solved. 5G is similar to 4G when used. It’s like my mouth is big, but my throat is small. I can’t swallow a large piece of meat in one bite.” Ren Zhengfei said that in order to solve the problem of network structure , Huawei will continue to invest in the reconstruction of the network, including the reconstruction of the software architecture system, and make a lot of investment in the four goals of “simplified network architecture, simplified network transaction model, extremely secure network, and compliance with GDPR for privacy protection”. Research and development expenses, to be the best network in the world.

Ren Zhengfei said in the middle of last year that he would invest US$100 billion in the next five years to reconstruct the network architecture.

On the second day of the analyst conference, Huawei released innovative solutions in the field of intelligent IP networks based on the three scenarios of “campus network, wide area network, and data center network”. Hu Kewen said that the collaboration of hundreds of billions of production and office terminals, 100% of enterprise business cloud requirements, and 97% of AI adoption rate, it can be said that the speed of 5G development depends on the optimization of the network structure.

Taking the campus network field as an example, Huawei said that the self-developed 16T16R smart antenna of AirEngine Wi-Fi 6 can achieve a single-user performance of 1.6Gbps, which is about 20% higher than the industry. The average terminal downlink rate has been increased by more than 50%, and the AI-based intelligent operation and maintenance system has shortened the mean time to repair (MTTR) from 4 hours to 10 minutes. These solutions have been implemented in Huawei campuses, SONGMICS Amazon, Germany’s largest furniture seller’s digital warehouse, etc. The scene falls.

In the field of data center networks, Hu Kevin said that through the original intelligent lossless iLossless algorithm, Huawei can now truly achieve zero packet loss in Ethernet, with data computing efficiency 27% higher than the industry, and data storage efficiency 30% higher. “Intelligent operation and maintenance is realized through AI technology, and typical faults can be sensed in 1 minute, located in 3 minutes, and repaired in 5 minutes.” Hu Kewen said.

As we all know, 2020 is the first year of commercial use of intelligent IP networks. The IP network has developed so far, from the Internet IP in the World Wide Web era to the video-driven All IP, and now it has entered the intelligent IP network for the 5G and cloud era. Judging from the latest Huawei intelligent IP network innovation solution, Huawei is fulfilling its “promise”.
