Huawei Unveils Advanced Network Solutions to Drive Africa’s Digital Transformation

HUAWEI AFRICA CONNECT 2024, themed “Accelerating Industrial Intelligence,” was successfully held in Johannesburg, South Africa. At the event, Huawei highlighted the Xinghe intelligent network solution for the Southern Africa region, which helps all industries move towards 5.5G and accelerate their journeys toward intelligence.

Nowadays, intelligent transformation and upgrading are gaining momentum around the world, and countries in Southern Africa are actively exploring their own paths towards digital and intelligent transformation. In the rapidly approaching intelligent era, networks are one of the most important ICT infrastructures. To usher in the intelligent era, the entire industry has reached a preliminary consensus that the next generation of data communication networks is Net5.5G.

In his opening speech, Leon Wang, President of Huawei’s Data Communication Product Line, said: “Intelligent technologies are rapidly approaching, driving us to constantly innovate network technologies to better adapt to business changes. Huawei offers the Xinghe intelligent network solution based on the Net5.5G target architecture, to accelerate industrial intelligence and build a solid bridge to the intelligent world.”

Huawei’s Xinghe intelligent network offerings include Xinghe Intelligent Campus, Xinghe Intelligent Fabric, Xinghe Intelligent WAN, and Xinghe Intelligent Network Security.

Xinghe Smart Campus: Huawei’s all-scenario Wi-Fi 7 products double wireless signal strength and increase the number of concurrent users by 50%. In addition, Huawei’s industry-unique audio and video security solution intelligently identifies and prioritizes audio and video applications to ensure an always-optimal experience. In terms of wireless network security, Huawei has launched Wi-Fi Shield technology, which ensures robust wireless network security.

Xinghe Smart Fabric: By leveraging AI Turbo and a network-scale load balancing (NSLB) algorithm, Xinghe Intelligent Fabric performs intelligent optimization to balance load across the entire network. This achieves link utilization of over 98% on average. In addition, Xinghe Intelligent Fabric ensures link- and device-level changes within milliseconds, as well as network-level changes within seconds. Three-tier fast changes efficiently release intelligent computing power.

Xinghe Smart WAN: Based on intelligent algorithms, Xinghe Intelligent WAN intelligently schedules tens of millions of service flows across the network and flexibly adjusts service bandwidth based on demand. In addition, latency-based path selection and end-to-end network slicing ensure efficient data transmission. By empowering network devices with AI, Xinghe Intelligent WAN can self-learn application traffic behavior, detect traffic exceptions in seconds, and deliver optimal application experience.

Xinghe Intelligent Network Security: With Xinghe’s intelligent network security solution, enterprises benefit from integrated intelligent security protection across clouds, networks, perimeters, and endpoints. Specifically, the cloud security brain automatically handles 99% of security events in a closed-loop approach. In particular, four security engines leverage AI algorithms to detect threats with 99.95% accuracy. In addition, the industry’s first two-dimensional threat graph engine enables parallel threat detection, with a ransomware detection rate reaching 100%.

In addition to this, Huawei also introduced a wide range of Xinghe intelligent industrial network solutions to meet the unique needs of various industries such as utilities, finance, and electric power. Other important announcements include cost-effective and complete distribution solutions and products that enable small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to enjoy intelligent services easily and conveniently.

The intelligent era requires intelligent networks. With this in mind, Huawei will continue to lead the development of intelligent networks and innovate with its Xinghe Intelligent Network products and solutions, thereby accelerating the intelligent digital transformation in Southern Africa.
