Let’s discuss the various aspects of the Autonomous Driving Network White Paper of Huawei-
Huawei Autonomous Driving Network Doc: White Paper Release
There are three aspects of this network solution that can improve the capabilities of the current all-optical autonomous driving network. You can scroll down to check all three points-
According to Huawei NCE Director, dumb resources for the optical fibers and cables are major issues in the current all-optical network industry. Thereby the all-optical autonomous driving network solution introduces pre-connection and optical iris technology innovation in the network element layer.
This arrangement combines the image recognition and big data analysis and diagnosis capabilities of the iMaster NCE intelligent management and control system. Thus, the network layer is able to improve its capacities in the following aspects-
- ODN Topology Restoration
- Accurate Fault Detection
- Accurate Resource Visual Management
- Predict Slow-Changing Faults
- Achieve Business Risk Investigation
