[Dubai, October 25, 2021] The 7th UBBF (UBBF 2021) was held in Dubai under the theme Connectivity +, New Growth. During the event, Kim Wang, Marketing Director of Huawei’s NCE Optical Network Area, delivered a keynote titled “All-Optical Autonomous Driving Network Transcends Superb Connectivity Experience,” and officially released the Huawei All-Optical Autonomous Driving Network White Paper for the first time.
Kim Wang said, “As an all-optical network is the cornerstone of the entire communication network, the all-optical autonomous driving network has become a consensus in the industry. Huawei aims to build an efficient all-optical autonomous network , secure and environmentally friendly driving network and provide high-end home broadband and private line premium contactless, no-wait and no-fault services, supporting the high-quality development of all services. ”

At the conference, Huawei also invited Ian Redpath, Research Director of Omdia, a well-known industry consulting company, to share information about the all-optical network. Ian Redpath pointed out that with the accelerated development of digitization, cloud services and 5G, the scale, complexity, service agility and deterministic experience requirements of optical networks are increasing, driving optical networks. to be automated and intelligent and to progressively evolve towards all stand-alone optical networks.
Kim Wang said, âHuawei’s all-optical autonomous driving network solution, referring to the high-level architecture of the Forum TM autonomous network, is a scenario-based solution implemented by the autonomous driving strategy from Huawei in the field of all-optical networks. On the one hand, intelligence is introduced into the all-optical network by bringing intelligence into the NE and network layers, accelerating the autonomy of the all-optical network in a single domain. On the other hand, the network service capabilities are fully open to implement cross-domain collaboration and business agility. âIn addition, he deepened the capabilities of the current all-optical autonomous driving network solution:
The intelligent all-optical network ignites dumb resources for efficient operation and maintenance. The biggest challenge facing all-optical networks is the invisibility of dumb resources like fiber optics and cables. The all-optical autonomous driving network solution introduces a technological innovation of pre-connection and optical iris at the NE layer and combines the capabilities of image recognition and big data analysis and diagnostics of the iMaster NCE at the network layer to implement automatic restoration of ODN topology, precise fault localization, precise and visualized management of resources. In addition, the intelligent analysis algorithm is used to predict transmission fiber and OCh deterioration faults and identify potential risks of services carried by fibers in a single cable. In this way, service risks can be verified without manual intervention, instrument or site visit. Passive treatment after the occurrence of a fault is replaced by predictive protection.
E2E home broadband experience assurance, creating a high-quality digital life experience. To meet the challenges of the main home broadband service Wi-Fi problems, 90% of the faults identified after customer complaints and installation and maintenance staff busy locating faults, the all-automatic driving network solution optical implements E2E closed-loop processing from automatic identification. , diagnosis and optimization of domestic broadband failures. This solution reduces the number of home visits by 30% and shortens the time to locate faults by 60%, ensuring a premium home broadband service experience. Additionally, this solution analyzes root causes and network bottlenecks, helping operators identify potential opportunities for home network, broadband acceleration, and scenario-based broadband services.
The SLA assurance of the E2E private line service and the full opening of network capacities are accelerating the digital transformation of various industries.
Service SLA Assurance: Based on microsecond latency map obtained from device testing, multidimensional availability assessment and optimization, and dynamic bandwidth tuning , the solution implements digital measurement of latency, availability and bandwidth, and provides complete process assurance covering the pre-sales, sales and post-sales phases.
Fully Open Network Service Capabilities: iMaster NCE provides unified management, control and analysis capabilities for all-optical networks and fully opens up network service capabilities. It accelerates private line service automation and customer self-service through rich interfaces such as ACTN standard north interfaces, over 10 OSS integration partners and over 40 OSS / BSS integration experiences, the TTM service is shortened from a few weeks to a few days.
At the end of his speech, Kim Wang said, âDue to the passive analog capabilities and the networking complexity of all-optical networks, it can take a long time to build fully-stand-alone all-optical networks. Huawei looks forward to making efforts with operators, standards bodies, research institutes and ecosystem partners to address these challenges. We will continue to explore and put into practice key technologies and innovative applications in the planning, construction, maintenance, optimization and commercialization of all-optical networks, with the aim of bringing connections to every home and business. , and facilitate the high-quality development of the digital economy. “
