Huawei recently launched its Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN) solution and a series of universal computing gateways, providing on-demand interconnection between branches, branches and data centers, and branches and the cloud.
SoftBank of Japan, a longstanding customer of Huawei's SD-WAN, has begun deploying the SD-WAN solution and plans to provide leased line services for enterprise customers in Japan and across the world.
According to Huawei, the solution delivers the ultimate experience in WAN interconnection through application-level network-wide intelligent path selection, smart acceleration, and cloud-based visualized Operations and Maintenance (O&M).
Huawei said its SD-WAN solution identifies user-defined applications and encrypted applications and uses global intelligent traffic scheduling technology to deliver an intelligent path selection solution that is based on the user, application, and optimal path.
The SD-WAN solution also leverages file transmission, data, and application optimization technologies to realize smart acceleration for key applications, ensuring the ultimate experience for important users and key applications.
Huawei's new AR1600 series and AR650 series open universal computing gateways, support on-demand deployment of Huawei and third-party VAS's (such as vFW and vWOC), meeting the deployment requirements in different branch scenarios. The Agile Controller flexibly orchestrates and automatically delivers VAS's, so that they can be provisioned within minutes, claims Huawei.
