The MEC to X solution helps 5GtoB achieve closed-loop business operations

BARCELONA, Spain, February 25, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — 5GtoB refers to the integration of 5G across multiple industries, enabling and supporting their digital and intelligent transformation. According to the GSMA, 5G technologies will add approx 1 trillion US dollars in value to the global economy by 2030, benefiting all industries. To take advantage of such huge market opportunities, all countries must consider how to go deeper into private network construction, realize faster replication of network capabilities in all industrial scenarios, and unleash more 5G capabilities. Against this backdrop, Huawei offers the MEC to X solution powered by Kite-Like Solution for building local, wide area and cross-domain private networks. This solution is able to support various industries, guide their digital transformation and help 5GtoB achieve business success.

Networking: PNI-NPN has become an industry consensus

The kite-like solution, which supports the concept of an integrated non-public network in a public network (PNI-NPN), is widely deployed in more than 40 industries in over 200 cities. There are already over 20,000 5G private network projects, contributing more than 30% to the growth of operators’ main revenue channels.

In 2023, Huawei began to optimize the Kite-Like Solution from multiple aspects in order to overcome service gaps and build a manageable, controllable and traceable “secure office network”. For example, Huawei is making more efforts to achieve simplified network delivery and provides an intensive campus private network operation and management platform to centrally manage user data, provide service data, and organize network O&M. More MEC sites are also deployed on corporate branch edge networks so that users can access the nearest campus network in multi-campus scenarios, reducing data drift. In addition, greater support is achieved for the 5G terminal access security feature, enabling whitelist-based control, terminal disconnection on exceptions, and intranet behavior tracking.

Cross-domain private network: Enables Mobile VPN to speed up multi-campus access and international roaming

A cross-domain private network allows users to access services on both public and private networks, even in cross-domain access scenarios. The mobile VPN solution released by Huawei implements a new east-west interconnected network. Currently, multiple networks such as the Private Education Network and the Private e-Government Network are interconnected. In the future, the solution will evolve to enable multi-network interconnection between more industries. So far, Huawei has been helping operators China deploy over 800 mobile VPN commercial projects spanning campuses, public service departments and SMBs.

For example, Huawei teamed up with China Unicom and South China The University of Technology will establish the country’s first 5G educational private network cluster, covering more than 20 universities in Guangdong-Hong Kong-Greater Macau Bay and benefits more than 20,000 users. Huawei also joined CTM to deliver the world’s first private campus network for Macau University of Science and Technology, implementing international roaming, increasing DoU by 110% and reducing RTT by 30%.

Local Private Network: Uses one network for multiple purposes and has low-cost positioning and low-cost network access

As the transformation of the digital economy accelerates, conventional IT-based private manufacturing and production networks continue to evolve to meet new requirements, such as indoor positioning, low-power IoT, and 5G LAN industrial interconnection. To keep up with this progress, Huawei introduces the 5GCtoB One Telco Cloud, a multi-dimensional network architecture that includes a centralized cloud and a distributed network. In this network, 5G LAN can be used to simplify the network access of IoT terminals; RedCap, characterized by low power consumption, easy deployment and wide coverage, can be used to expand 5G applications in production intranets of enterprises. As such, the concept of “one network for many purposes” is widely practiced in local private networks. For example, 5G LAN is being introduced in Jushi’s fully connected factory in Zhejiang, China to simplify industrial networks and offer flexible production.

Wide-Area Private Network: Offers a secure, stable, intelligent and flexible converged network

Wide-area private networks take full advantage (such as wide coverage and slicing) of 5G networks to meet the requirements of private power grids and interconnections over a wide area of ​​multiple campuses. For example, Huawei and partners jointly launched the 5G hard slicing+lightweight 5G RedCap solution to meet the typical service requirements of the production control areas and management information areas of the State Grid Shandong Electric Power Company. This solution helps build the country’s first private 5G industrial network with the widest coverage and largest application.

5G will continue to enter more and more industries over the next decade, ushering in another golden age. In this technology journey, Huawei will continue to explore the advantages of pipes, make breakthroughs and focus on product innovation targeting customer requirements to reshape the 5GtoB industry. Huawei will continue to keep an open mind and cooperate with operators, enterprise customers and industry partners to chart a winning course.
