AD-WAN 6.0+ Branch Solution

As cloud computing grows rapidly and gains large-scale deployments, enterprises are increasingly moving their on-premises IT systems to the cloud. Wherever the applications are located, users want to have the same experience. They need to access the cloud-hosted applications as fast and secure as they access on-premises applications. However, the traditional WAN architecture is complex, difficult to scale, closed and rigid, and can hardly adapt to accelerated application provisioning and business changes driven by cloud computing. A new WAN solution that can address the challenges in this cloud computing ear is required.

The H3C AD-WAN branch solution uses a standard SDN architecture that is unified, tiered, open, and intelligent. It integrates intelligent network management, intelligent control, and intelligent analysis to provide unified network management, control, and analytics across the campus, data center, and WAN domains and deliver end-to-end network and service automation, visibility, and refined network management. The solution also provides a unified portal for administrators to provision, assure, operate, and manage the network from a single pane of management.

The H3C AD-WAN branch solution has the following components:

Unified Platform—Digital network engine acting as the brain of the whole network. Based on containerized platform and service-oriented software architecture, Unified Platform provides users with data center, campus, and WAN convergence services. It provides standard northbound Restful APIs used for open and flexible integration into different OSS/BSS management systems. Standard protocols are provided in the southbound direction to collaborate with the device layer, such as SNMP, NETCONF, and Telemetry.

Management component—Provides traditional management capabilities such as device version management, configuration management, alarms, performance monitoring, and topology, as well as value-added services such as QoS.

Control component—Provides zero touch provisioning, WAN optimization, and network traffic tuning to prioritize high-priority service needs.

Analysis component—Implements rapid network status awareness and second-level operation and maintenance based on Telemetry. This component displays the most critical elements in the network to assist with O&M. The analysis service applies AI to O&M to collect network-wide information, including network devices, traffic, quality, correlated events, and alarms. With big data and AI technologies, machine learning, and deep analysis algorithms, this component observes the network from the perspective of applications and proactively senses the problems of the network and applications. In response to network and service problems, it provides automated troubleshooting capabilities to help users quickly locate and delimit faults, reduce O&M costs, and improves the competitiveness of your enterprise's products.
