Huawei goes bear hunting at the 5G frontier

With the 5G world looming ever larger on the horizon, Huawei has launched X-Haul, a solution to tackle the complications imposed on bearer network bandwidth, latency, connections and O&M.

The launch itself seems to be focused around the idea of flexibility and agility on the network. Essentially, creating a proposition which allows for multiple use-cases and alterations dependent on customer demand, whether that would be 3G/4G/5G multi-service bearer or IoT, for instance.

“The 5G era is approaching, and the shape that service modes will take is not yet certain,” said Jeffrey Gao, President of Huawei Router & Carrier Ethernet Product Line

“The Huawei X-Haul solution fully supports 4G/5G bearing, so as to effectively support operators’ new service development and expand the business blueprint. In the future, Huawei will continue to promote joint innovation with operators in the 5G field around the world, and join hands with upstream and downstream industry partners to promote the sustainable development of the 5G industry.”

The new solution itself would appear to be focused on four marketing pillars:

  • Providing flexible access capabilities that can match the scenario of any site
  • Implementing agile network operations based on a cloud architecture
  • Enabling new service innovation through end-to-end network slicing
  • Supporting evolution from 4G bearer networks to 5G bearer networks

The team claims flexible networking is implemented through the IP, microwave and OTN access technologies, enabling unified fronthaul and backhaul bearing whether or not optical cables are used. For backhaul in highly-populated areas, Huawei has launched a 50GE/100GE adaptive network slicing router, where for scenarios where optical cables are not used, it also has a 5G-ready microwave solution.

It has also made a big deal of a cloud-based architecture for operations, which seems quite redundant to mention. Surely 99.9% of applications which are being launched for the world-of-today and tomorrow are cloud-based. Thought of the day for those marketers who are churning out creative collateral.
