Huawei launches cloud access point for outdoor high-density access
Sep 7, 2017
Promoting the CloudCampus Solution for All Scenarios
[Shenzhen, China, September 1, 2017] Recently, Huawei launched the industry’s first 2.5G/5G cloud access point (AP) which works on two 5 GHz bands for outdoor campus scenarios. This next-generation cloud AP is a supplement to Huawei’s CloudCampus solution for outdoor high-density access and will further drive CloudCampus implementation in all situations.
With the rapid development of Wireless Broadband (WBB), people have increasingly high expectations when using wireless connectivity. Currently, users often encounter poor network experience in many public places; for example, network access failure or a poor network signal. Deploying a campus network takes operators a long time and requires manual configuration by professional IT personnel. Network planning mainly relies on experience, which cannot achieve optimal coverage and increases the total cost of ownership (TCO) to more than 70 percent. To maximize a user’s experience, operators need to plan the entire campus network as an end-to-end solution.
Huawei CloudCampus solution achieves optimal cloud-based network planning and fast deployment within hours. Based on the next-generation cloud AP, both the access rate of outdoor campus users and the number of access users are doubled. This cloud AP provides the high-speed Wi-Fi access outdoor campus which users have come to expect. The AP configuration can be automatically delivered from the cloud platform, implementing automatic deployment and plug-and-play. Additionally, Huawei’s CloudCampus solution supports cloud-based O&M, which, in combination with an intelligent LED indicator on APs, helps quickly locate faults and save on IT personnel maintenance costs.
“Rapid development of wireless standards and cloud computing promotes continuous upgrades of campus networks. In the next few years, more enterprises will choose to migrate their campus networks to the cloud. Huawei’s CloudCampus solution helps operators extend enterprise connection services on the WAN to the SD-LAN, empowering operators to provide cloud managed campus networks and expand their Business-to-Business (B2B) profits,” said Wang Shihong, General Manager of Huawei’s Switch & Enterprise Gateway Product Line.
To promote the development of the UBB industry and explore ways to boost service growth, Ultra-Broadband Forum (UBBF) 2017, is to be held from October 18 to October 19, 2017 in Hangzhou, China. This UBBF will focus on the topics of ‘New Growth in B2B’, ‘Deliver the Video Dividends’, ‘Accelerating the Gigaband Society’, ‘Towards the 5G Era’ and on the innovation of All-Cloud Network solutions. During UBBF 2017, Huawei will comprehensively analyze CloudCampus service opportunities and share business practices for operators’ campus services, with the goal of increasing B2B success.
