Huawei launches 5G Data Network


On the sidelines of GITEX Technology Week, Huawei, a leading global provider of information and communications technology (ICT), announced the launch of 5G Data Network, a transformative new data storage solution for 5G that will improve the efficiency of data use, make business more agile. 

Data transmission is a basic service for the communications industry. With the deepening of the digital transformation, massive data enter the business systems of the Carrie's production domain, supporting the Carries' Billing, CRM, NFV, VAS and other services. Then the data flows from the production system to the analysis domain, and the useful information in the massive data is extracted through BI, big data analysis, etc., and then the information is used to optimize various business systems of the production domain or provide external data services. Carriers have explored digital roads for more than 20 years, with digitalization rates considerably higher than in other industries. However, carriers production and analysis systems have historically been stored in silos, making them isolated and unable to be shared. 

Huawei’s new 5G Data Network solution addresses this, in line with today’s need for massive quantities of data to be transmission to various systems within the carrier production domain. 5G Data Network is an intelligent converged Data Storage Solution, providing efficient access, unified analysis, and simple consumption. It improves storage utilization by 30 per cent, and accelerates data service rollout to just 5 minutes, compared to the 6 hours previously required. Customers can use 5G Data Network solution to integrate storage and analysis platforms on the live network, abandon the silo construction mode, improve data storage and analysis efficiency, and reduce the TCO of the entire network.

Speaking during the launch, Mr. Cody Wang, General Manager of Carrier IT Product Line, Huawei Middle East, said: “As networks evolve into 5G and digitization across society continues, the communications industry needs to update their data storage. Silos simply won’t work in a 5G era. 5G Data Network is designed to evolve data storage and provide increased convenience for carriers, using Huawei’s state of the art intelligent storage management platform.”
