RELEASE: UBBF 2023 Smart IP Network Summit in Dubai, an impressive success

DUBAI, UAE, Oct. 16, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- During the ninth UBBF 2023 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, the Smart IP Networks Summit, themed "Continuous Net5.5G Innovation, Driving New Growth," provided the perfect setting for leading operators and analysts from prestigious organizations around the world to meet and discuss industry development and data communication standards. Operators were also able to share their innovative business practices in the evolution of the Net5.5G transport network and industry digital networks.

AI applications are growing explosively and having a profound impact on people's way of life. And at the same time, businesses are rapidly transforming from digital to smart. As the key infrastructure of the smart world, data communication networks are undergoing constant innovation and evolution. Huawei's data communication product line, together with industrial organizations and operators, took the opportunity during the summit to discuss how transportation networks will evolve and create new value through continuous innovation.

Mark Oliver, vice president of Omdia Consulting, began his speech by saying that consumer networking requirements will increase exponentially by 2030 and that consumers will pay more attention to the quality and reliability of networks. Companies, such as those in the retail, education, healthcare and financial sectors, will use IoT and AI technologies to automate their operations. With the advent of the intelligent era, networks will need to address the new challenges it brings. To help enterprises quickly implement intelligent transformation, IP transport networks need more innovation. Such networks must be able to provide high computing power, low latency, high bandwidth, high reliability, high security and high automation, and must be agile, convergent and green.

Zuo Meng, vice president of Huawei's data communication product line, gave a speech titled "Building Net5.5G-oriented IP Converged Transport Network." In it, he predicted that IP transport networks will enter a new era with 400 GE metropolitan networks and 800 GE backbone networks, and provide ubiquitous 10 Gbps connections for mobile, home, enterprise and university users in the Net5 era. 5G. State-of-the-art IP transport networks must be able to provide not only converged transport but also differentiated service assurance, thereby satisfying the differentiated network requirements of various services. Huawei's data communication product line has been making continuous innovations in 400GE and 800GE interface technologies, network slicing and digital network map, among others, providing leading transport network solutions for global operators and helping them achieve the Business success. Operators can greatly benefit from Huawei's offerings, including the NetEngine 8000 series of high-end routers. These high-performance and energy-saving devices not only support all services, but can also be deployed in all scenarios. And the newly upgraded NetEngine 8000 M14, F8 and X series make significant improvements in terms of capacity and power efficiency ratio, providing the optimal TCO solution for building carrier networks.

Vaughn David Naidoo, MTN South Africa Center of Excellence Executive spoke about the launch of MTN's Ambition 2025 strategy and the start of the DICT transformation in 2021. MTN was the first to complete the construction of a smart cloud network aimed at the industry, providing business clients with comprehensive digital services. that offer the best experience. The telco's networks offer key capabilities such as rapid delivery, resource visualization and automated optimization, helping companies rapidly achieve digital transformation.

Telecom Argentina is the leading operator in Argentina. Leonardo Gabriel Di Pilato, its service assurance manager, said that Telecom Argentina focused on improving the premium experience of residential broadband users. As FTTH deployment becomes more widespread, home users place greater demands on the network experience. Through deep joint innovation with Huawei, Telecom Argentina has widely implemented 400GE technology in backbone networks, dramatically reducing network congestion. And by applying the innovative BRAS smart solution, the operator's networks have moved from passive response to proactive operation and maintenance. This has brought significant benefits in improving the home broadband user experience and driving rapid market growth.

Robin Li, Huawei's leading IP protocol expert, talked about the latest developments and applications of enhanced IPv6 and systematically explained the development of IP networks. He said data communication networks are witnessing the new era of IP smart grids. Enhanced IPv6 is the best option to unlock network potential and drive networks to become intelligent. Robin also explained the benefits, commercial implementation progress, and values ​​of key technologies (such as SRv6, network slicing, IFIT, and APN6) in the enhanced IPv6 family of technologies.

UBBF is the world's highest-level fixed network summit jointly organized by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and Huawei. It aims to bring together all stakeholders to discuss the evolution of Net5.5G transport networks and share operators' practices in the digital transformation of industrial networks, thereby helping global operators explore new markets.
