Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, launched the industry’s first agile network architecture technology and agile switch, the S12700 in Egypt. With a design that has been developed from a service and user experience perspective, the Huawei S12700 switch supports higher reliability and larger Ethernet frames. This innovative new technology features the key attributes required to support new industry trends including; cloud computing, bring your own device (BYOD), software-defined network (SDN), internet of things (IoT), and big data related analytics for business use.
Austin Pan – Huawei Enterprise NA President stated “After being successfully deployed in nearly 200 projects around the globe, we are proud to launch the S12700 series agile switches in the Egyptian market which will provide more agile services and flexibility to respond to changes in service requirements on demand.”
By launching the first service and user experience centered agile network architecture, Huawei has introduced SDN architecture into campus networks for the first time. This has enabled networks to provide more efficient and agile services and evolve from single-node service processing into full-scale management and control. Huawei S12700 switch forms part of the industry’s most advanced series of agile switches, and this will lead to a new revolution in Ethernet switching technology and network construction. Featuring automatic network deployment and management, the S12700 supports end-to-end (E2E) security collaboration with the flexibility for fast-changing services and full programmability.
“Huawei believes that during the coming years, Egypt is entering a new era of big projects with huge investments, we are supporting the Egyptian government and companies with the latest technologies helping them to face the market speed and to be more efficient” said Yang Tao – Huawei Technologies Egypt – Country Manager.
“In a fast based market with emerging technologies and trends such as cloud computing, big data, mobility, and Social Networking Service (SNS), the management of networks now faces three great challenges: insufficient service processing capability, fault location difficulties, and slow service responses. Leadership teams look forward to the availability of networks that can provide more agile services and flexibility to respond to changes in service requirements on demand”. Added Pan – Huawei Enterprise NA President.
Campus network infrastructure is experiencing rapid evolution due to the dynamic nature of enterprise mobility and BYOD rollouts, cloud services and applications, real time multi-media and unified communication applications, as well as the need for a comprehensive approach to security across enterprise IT infrastructure. These innovation trends urge enterprises to enhance their abilities to support business and application needs. Huawei’s next generation network architecture is aligned with these trends, which along with its built-in programmable chip will enable enterprises to meet future network requirements through emerging networking architectures such as SDN.
Mr. Mark Wu – Head of Huawei Agile Solution stated “Huawei S12700 is the industry’s only sole 5th generation switch products, this latest innovation from Huawei marks a significant step in Huawei’s efforts to bring more value to its customers and facilitate business transformation, changing the future of the industry.”
It is worth mentioning that Huawei agile network solutions have been successfully deployed in different sectors covering government, education, healthcare, transportation, radio & tv and large enterprise industries in Europe, America, Asia and Africa and Huawei expects more success in the Egyptian market.
