Huawei officially released its Autonomous Driving Network (ADN) solution for the enterprise market at the Huawei Connect 2020 conference.
This future-proof solution brings intelligence to networks and integrates artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities at the network element (NE), network, and cloud layers. As such, it drives enterprise networks towards the autonomous driving era and empowers hyper-automated digital services and operations across industries, reads a press release issued by the company on Tuesday.
Enterprise networks that integrate AI capabilities can overcome manual O&M efficiency limitations, achieving autonomous driving with high automation and intelligence levels, added the press release.
According to Huawei's Global Industry Vision (GIV) 2025, 97% of large enterprises will be using AI within the next five years.
On the occasion, Lu Hongju, president of Huawei's General Development Department, said, "Huawei plans to fully introduce AI into the connectivity field and build ADNs, thereby enabling networks to evolve from simple automation to hyper-automation with human-machine collaboration."
"We also expect to achieve level-3 conditional autonomous networks in three years, level-4 highly autonomous networks in five years, and level-5 fully autonomous networks in seven to ten years," he continued.
According to the press release, by completely integrating 3-layer AI capabilities, Huawei ADN ultimately aims to build a self-organising, self-healing, and self-optimising autonomous network that can self-iterate and self-evolve.
