Huawei has been awarded the ‘Best Software-defined Networking Solution’ at the 2017 Network World Asia Readers’ Choice Product Excellence Awards. The awards ceremony, organized by Questex Asia, was held at The St. Regis Singapore.
Award winners were determined based on five key criteria: the reputation of the vendor in the marketplace; features and unique selling points of the solution; widespread acceptance of technology and/or brand; users’ feedback on the solution/deployment; as well as durability, scalability, and quality of service.
The ‘Best Software-defined Networking Solution’ award recognizes 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) solution 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 centralizes unit management and control of physical and virtual resources of the network infrastructure, which supports multiple overlays and underlay networking scenarios based on software and hardware network devices. It also provides automatic network resources based on demands, intelligent optimization, and visualizes operations and maintenance – enabling administrators to build service-oriented features for more dynamic scheduling of network services.
Aaron Wang, Managing Director, Enterprise Business Group, Huawei Singapore, said, “We are honored to receive this prestigious award and it is also a timely reminder for us to continue our efforts in serving our customers’ best interests. We want to thank the organizers and voters for acknowledging our dedication to deliver our best efforts. We also want to thank our customers and partners for believing in our vision of creating a better-connected world through innovative and responsible offerings.”
The 12th Readers’ Choice Product Excellence Awards recognize both established and new solution providers that have made the most impact on Asian end-user organizations in 2017, based on votes from qualified readers of NetworkWorld Asia, Asia Cloud Forum, Security Asia and Storage Asia.
