Continuous evolution of all-cloud wireless network architecture: engine of the development of all industries in 5G era
Apr 12, 2017
[Shenzhen, China, April 12, 2017] During Huawei’s Global Analyst Summit 2017, Huawei further elaborated its latest strategy about All-Cloud wireless network based on CloudRAN. The strategy will dramatically push forward the evolution of the current network to 5G, to improve the user experience of Mobile Broadband (MBB), to meet the diversified service requirements of all vertical industries, and to help construct the application-driven network and the open industry ecosystem.
Huawei’s All-Cloud wireless network strategy can realize the digital transition of all industries, help operators to fulfil efficient resource utilization, on-demand module deployment, and agile service provisioning. It can also maximize the value of their existing networks, enable diversified industries and bring sustainable value to the industry.
In the future, naked-eye 3D and high-resolution VR will become important bearers of video services. 100Mbps anytime anywhere is the basis for guaranteeing user experience. On the other hand, different vertical industries have diversified requirements for the 5G network. For example, autonomous driving requires ultra-low latency and high reliability to guarantee safety; the efficient management of smart city requires high-density and low-power sensor connections.
The development of new applications poses a big challenge for the current network. Due to the lack of inter-cell, inter-band coordination, the network cannot provide consistent user experience anytime anywhere. The chimney-like network architecture cannot adapt to new applications. According to Huawei, CloudRAN needs to be supported by “Four Decoupling” to match the development of the 5G industry. The decoupling of Site & UE, UL & DL, Control & Data, Physical Topology & Service makes the future network more intelligent, more flexible, and more elastic, which will lay a solid basis for all industries in the 5G era.
Mr Yang Chaobin, the President of Huawei 5G Product Line, said:
“With the digital transformation of global ICT, the network architecture of operators needs to transform from Network Centric to User Centric. All-Cloud wireless network architecture is the key factor to fulfil the network transformation for operators. Huawei will continuously innovate on the R&D of 5G network architecture and key technologies, strengthen the cooperation with industry partners, make the 5G industry ecosystem robust, and promote the development of all industries."
