Huawei has set out seven application scenarios that it believes will help to realise the commercial value of software-defined networking (SDN).

The China-based vendor is basing the scenarios around its SoftCOM vision that it unveiled earlier this year. In short, SoftCOM envisions a cloud-based telecom, IT and IP network that leverages SDN.

Through a new “Business Initiatives Zoom-in” programme, Huawei is advocating that operators take a step-by-step approach to develop cost-effective solutions that can be applied to existing networks.

The seven application scenarios are: SDN-based mobile backhaul; SDN-based traffic steering for Gi-LAN; SDN-based data center interconnection (DCI); cloud IMS/EPC; virtualized set top box functions; a business enablement suite to support BSS; and communication as a service (CaaS).

Operators can fundamentally improve network utilisation and operating efficiency, achieve structural cost reduction, and seize new commercial opportunities through industry integration by deploying solutions to tackle these seven scenarios, according to Huawei.

“Huawei’s SoftCOM BIZ programme is a solid step forward in realising our SoftCOM strategy for the evolution of future networks,” commented Wang Shengqing, president of global marketing and solution sales of Huawei Carrier Network Business Group.

“The programme will continue to help telecom operators tackle commercial challenges and find new growth models for the construction of an innovative and open ecosystem.”
