Transport Network Automation Solution
Due to the open-loop structure of traditional networks, planning, deployment, maintenance and optimization are distributed and complex,the traditional networks cannot meet the requirements of 5G network rearchitecting and diversified service applications.Traditional networks rely heavily on manual management of O&M persons and pose high requirements for them.
With the industry-leading technology and the IBN concept, ZTE's next-generation intelligent transport network solution (Athena) supports cloud native deployment and microservice architecture. It provides more flexible, more efficient, more open and higher-quality network operation and management services for customers.
By employing the intent-driven engine, automation control engine and network cognitive engine, the solution shows the customer a closed-loop automation system.
Open Capabilities of Cloud Native Architecture
The solution provides the industry with broadest Cloud Native architecture. The bottom layer is capable of elastic scaling according to physical resources or virtual resources. Full series of intelligent O&M applications are provided based on microservice technologies. In addition to comply with DevOps models, the solution also makes new applications easy to deploy and deliver.
Open APIs are used to help the customer build a vertical industry-based ecosystem. The APP store today is getting more and more complete.
SDN is employed to put user intents into application automatically. The patent Intelligent TE algorithm is used to implement in-batch service provisioning, remove congestion and help with global optimization. All the deployment ensures the maximum use and improvement and network resources, which effectively allows deployment and optimization of 5G E2E network slicing and customer services.
Deep Cooperation Rapidly Elevates ZTE Market Position
ZTE has extended deep cooperation with global operators. With innovative SDN control and AI-based network management features, ZTE's network automation products applied in the solution not only have participated in massive tests organized by world-famous operators, for instance, Telefonica and Vodafone, but also have been put into commercial use by many world-renowned operators such as A1, China Mobile, China Telecom and China Unicom. So far, the solution and related products are extensively approved by global operators.
