SD-WAN Needs Continuous Exploration and Innovation in Cloud & AI Native Era
In the cloud & AI native era, WAN (Wide Area Network) is turning into an architecture centered on cloud, Wang said. As customers in various industries push ahead with practice regarding WAN, their demands for relevant products and services have been continuously stimulated, according to him.
SD-WAN faces new challenges in such aspects as technical architecture, business experience, operation, maintenance and management, and exploration of new business models, Wang said. Only through continuous exploration and innovation can SD-WAN providers keep up with the times, he noted.
Adhering to the core principle of Application Driven Network, H3C launched its AD-WAN 6.0 Solution this year, the new-generation SD-WAN solution based on cloud & AI native architecture. The company is devoted to helping customers build an SD-WAN network that supports cloud deployment and decoupling of functions through improvements and innovations in the following five aspects:
Technical Architecture: The company has realized the integration of campuses, data centers, and WANs, helping customers achieve cross-domain network connectivity, faster deployment of cross-domain strategies, unified management of cross-domain O&M and end-to-end business collaboration.
Business Experience: H3C enables business interconnection of mainstream public clouds and supports quality/flow dual factor routing, providing the best possible forwarding routes for customers.
Security Guarantee: Through Zero Trust Network Access, end-to-end encryption and Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) on cloud platform, H3C has built defense system covering cloud platform, network, and terminal device to support customers in network security construction.
AIOps: By leveraging AIOps and digital twin technology, the company has achieved closed-loop fast self-healing control of faults, and is able to switch the low-traffic nodes and interfaces to the closed or idle state at the proper time, thus contributing to the energy-saving efforts of customers.
