Huawei gets ‘Best Software-defined Networking Solution’ award

Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, has been awarded with the ‘Best Software-defined Networking Solution’ at the 2017 NetworkWorld Asia Readers’ Choice Product Excellence Awards.

The awards ceremony, organised by Questex Asia, was held at The St. Regis Singapore, said a press release issued on Sunday.

“We are honoured to receive this prestigious award and it is also a timely reminder for us to continue our efforts in serving our customers’ best interests,” said Enterprise Business Group, Huawei Singapore managing director Aaron Wang.

He thanked the organisers and voters for acknowledging their dedication to deliver their best efforts.

Aaron also thanked their customers and partners for believing in Huawei’s vision of creating a better connected world through innovative and responsible offerings.

Award winners were determined based on five key criteria: reputation of vendor in the marketplace, features and unique selling points of the solution, widespread acceptance of technology and/or brand, users’ feedback on the solution, and durability, scalability and quality of service.

The ‘Best Software-defined Networking Solution’ award recognises solutions that allow network administrators to have a programmable central control of network traffic and resources without requiring physical access to the network’s hardware devices.

Huawei’s Software-defined Networking Solution (SDN) features the next-generation SDN controller, Agile Controller 3.0, which is an open system design.

The solution also displays easy to use interfaces and brings significant benefits such as reducing the time-to-market of new services.

The Agile Controller centralises unit management and control of physical and virtual resources of the network infrastructure, which supports multiple overlay and underlay networking scenarios based on software and hardware network devices.

It also provides automatic network resources based on demands, intelligent optimisation, and visualises operations and maintenance – enabling administrators to build service-oriented features for more dynamic scheduling of network services.

The 12th Readers’ Choice Product Excellence Awards recognise both established and new solution providers that have made the most impact on Asian end-user organisations in 2017, based on votes from qualified readers of NetworkWorld Asia, Asia Cloud Forum, Security Asia and Storage Asia.
