Huawei Launches ADN Solution for Enterprises

huawei launches new adn solution

Huawei has officially launched its Autonomous Driving Network (ADN) solution for enterprises. The ADN solution will bring intelligence to networks and integrate AI capabilities at the network element (NE), network, and cloud layers.

The move by Huawei is a significant one as networks look to usher forth the autonomous driving era. The ADN solution will empower enterprises to develop hyper-automated digital services and operations across industries.

Lu Hongju, President of Huawei's General Development Department launched the solution with David Wang, Huawei's Executive Director at Huawei’s Connect 2020 event. Lu Hongju said: “Huawei plans to fully introduce AI into the connectivity field and build ADNs, thereby enabling networks to evolve from simple automation to hyper-automation with human-machine collaboration. We also expect to achieve level-3 conditional autonomous networks in three years, level-4 highly autonomous networks in five years, and level-5 fully autonomous networks in seven to ten years.”

Huawei’s ADN solution is a comprehensive solution that integrates 3-layer AI capabilities. It can build a self-organizing, self-healing, and self-optimizing autonomous network that can grow all by itself. This will empower and future-proof network and accelerate the agile innovation of enterprise digital services.

The ADN solution will bring an optimal experience with customer services. The ADN solution from Huawei consists of intelligent campus, IP WAN, optical transport, and data center network devices; iMaster NCE and iMaster MAE (intelligent network management and control systems that integrate management, control, and analysis); and two major cloud service products (network AI service and cloud-managed network service).
