Gartner Magic Quadrant is the culmination of research in a specific market, providing a wide-angle view of the relative positions of the market’s competitors. By applying a graphical treatment and a uniform set of evaluation criteria, Gartner’ Magic Quadrant makes it possible to quickly ascertain how well technology providers are executing their stated visions and how well they are performing against Gartner’s market view. In Magic Quadrant terms, “challengers” are technology providers with strong execution capabilities and high-quality products and services.
Xun Su, Huawei’s Global Technical Service Vice President said: ”Huawei, as a formidable ‘Challenger’, continues to steadily improve its execution capabilities, due to its ability to quickly adjust to industry changes. We continuously focus on ‘service-driven’ OSS products and solutions, while rapidly expanding our OSS footprint across Europe, China, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa. We are developing our next generation OSS Infrastructure Enabling System (IES）using our four inter-connected Cloud Open Labs (located in Langfang, Beijing, Xian and Shenzhen) to support IES innovation around the globe, aligning with our customers’ digital operation transformation strategies.”
Based on innovative cloud native, micro-service architecture, Huawei’s IES features an Online Studio and a Run Time Platform separating design and execution functions, shortening time-to-market and enabling autonomous development and quick releases. IES also supports hybrid network management, enabling smooth evolution to SDN/NFV technology.
Huawei’s extensive network management experience extends across 180+ networks worldwide, allowing it to continuously grow its vast repositories of O&M assets, which combined with its agile DevOps development model, are helping operators quickly roll out new products, services and applications. IES can also enable operators to build digital economy ecosystems by facilitating their development of digital services, increasing operations agility and exposing network capability.
Furthermore, with its IES solution, Huawei is an active participant in the OPEN-O (Orchestrator) program, continuously promoting the development of multi-vendor resource orchestration industry-wide. Its Open ROADS Community brings together leading voices from across the ICT industry to incubate ICT transformation best practices and help service providers transform their ICT operations to become truly digital businesses.
