When we talk about the “new infrastructure” today, many people will compare it with the traditional infrastructure of “tiegongji”. In fact, between these two generations of infrastructure, there is also an era of consumer Internet represented by Internet and mobile Internet. It is the information infrastructure such as 3G, 4G and home broadband that has created China’s extremely prosperous era of consumer Internet.
When the Internet enters into the second half and the era of industrial Internet, the basic information infrastructure will change accordingly – it will become the communication network infrastructure represented by 5g and F5G, as well as the more powerful and ubiquitous AI, cloud, big data, IOT and other emerging technologies based on them. As the base of the “new infrastructure”, these new information infrastructures are promoting the digital transformation and intelligent upgrading of all kinds of industries, and driving the arrival of a thriving industrial Internet era.
As the “new infrastructure in the new infrastructure”, 5g mobile communication has become a household name, and 5g enabling has been deeply rooted in the hearts of the people. What about the fifth generation fixed communication F5G? What are its advantages and how to build a “new infrastructure”? How to help Qianxing and Baiye digital transformation and drive the industrial Internet era?
“F5G era Huawei enterprise optical network flagship product conference” was held in Guangzhou. Representatives from all walks of life talked about the development trend of next generation optical network, and comprehensively dissected F5G in combination with the practical application of F5G in government and enterprise, energy, education, finance, medical and other industries, which revealed the mystery of the above problems for us.
Constant refresh of fixed broadband, entering the F5G era of optical connection of all things
Similar to mobile communication, which has gone through 1g (AMPS), 2g (GSM / CDMA), 3G (WCDMA / CDMA2000 / TD-SCDMA), 4G (LTE TDD / LTE FDD) and entered 5g (5g NR) era, fixed network has gone through five generations, including f1g narrowband era (64Kbps) represented by PSTN / ISDN technology, f2g Broadband Era (10Mbps) represented by ADSL technology, The F3G ultra wideband era (30-200mbps) is represented by VDSL technology, and the f4g ultra 100m era (100-500mbps) is represented by GPON / EPON Technology. Now it is stepping into the F5G Gigabit ultra wideband era represented by 10g PON technology.
On the basis of previous generations of fixed networks, F5G has made leaps and bounds in connection capacity, bandwidth and user experience. For example, its uplink and downlink speed is as high as 10Gbps, and the delay is reduced to 100 μ The number of connections increased by more than 100 times. With the three major features of ultra-high bandwidth, all-optical connection and ultimate experience, F5G is extending the business scenario of fixed network from “fiber to home” to “optical connection of everything”, that is, from connecting families to connecting various industries such as government and enterprise, energy, education, finance and medical care, helping the digital transformation of thousands of industries.
At the press conference, Jin Yuzhi, President of Huawei’s transmission and access product line, said that the new infrastructure consists of three parts: new connection, new computing and new applications. They support the development of the national digital economy from the bottom up. The new connection is usually the communication network, including 5g, F5G and Internet of things. Since April this year, the national development and Reform Commission has defined the scope of the new infrastructure, and proposed for the first time to accelerate the optimization and upgrading of the optical broadband network.
He quoted the prediction of the book “new infrastructure”: the investment in new connection in 2020 will be 740 billion yuan, the investment in new infrastructure will be 1.7 trillion yuan, and the GDP growth will be 35.8 trillion yuan. It is estimated that in the next five years, F5G will bring at least 100 billion level of industrial investment space, benefit government affairs, electric power, transportation, education, manufacturing, finance and other industries, and stimulate a new round of economic growth.
The greater the capacity, the greater the responsibility. F5G promotes the transformation and upgrading of qianhang Baiye
From the information released by the conference, the digital transformation and intelligent upgrading of Qianxing Baiye are just at the right time. New ICT technologies such as cloud, AI, big data and IOT are reshaping the productivity and production relations of enterprises. With the ubiquitous application of cloud services, 4K / 8K ultra high definition video, VR / Ar / MR, Internet robots, intelligent computing and ubiquitous Internet of things in all walks of life, traditional enterprise networks need to be transformed and upgraded.
The greater the capacity, the greater the responsibility. F5G, with ultra-high bandwidth, all-optical connection and ultimate experience, is rapidly entering into all kinds of industries, providing strong support for business scenarios such as quality special line, enterprise cloud, IOT and intelligent manufacturing.
At the press conference, the successful cases of F5G enabling thousands of businesses were not rare. For example, in the education industry, in the face of the demand of smart campus construction for high-speed ubiquitous network capability, Fudan University and Huawei cooperate to deploy Huawei campus Optix all-optical park network, which adopts a minimalist and innovative pol (passive optical local area network) networking architecture, and directly connects the convergence room and each room through optical fiber to realize a convergence room to manage multiple buildings, It provides strong support for all kinds of intelligent teaching applications, greatly improves the operation and maintenance efficiency, and saves 30% of the whole network energy consumption.
For another example, in the medical field, Henan Unicom, together with Huawei, has built an integrated image cloud service platform for the people’s Hospital of Henan Province. Through the large bandwidth and high security cloud dedicated line built by the government enterprise boutique network of peotn (packet OTN), it has provided the hospital with the best cost-effective 1g link bandwidth, It solves the cloud storage and disaster recovery of about 230tb image data in the hospital (and adds about 40tb data each year), guarantees the bandwidth and security requirements of the cloud on the image, and strongly supports the transformation of the smart hospital.
For another example, in the financial industry, Huawei cooperated with a bank in Jiangsu Province to establish a strong transmission network with F5G technology, which ensured that all the more than 2000 branches of the Bank of Jiangsu Province would transmit data to the Bank of Jiangsu in real time for processing. At the same time, it also met the demand of the bank in the peak of consumption flow, peak of capital flow during holidays, as well as high-definition video conference and high-definition video conference inside the bank The real-time call of HD surveillance camera signal, bandwidth guarantee in case of emergency and other differentiated bandwidth requirements in different scenarios have achieved 50% improvement in settlement efficiency and continued to improve profits.
In a wider range of industrial fields, F5G’s comprehensive enhanced ability shows more use. For example, in the power industry, F5G can support a variety of innovative scenarios and applications, including unattended substation, transmission line inspection, video capture, cloud AI analysis, etc., by cooperating with 5g, AI and other technologies, sensors, automatic work robots and other equipment, comprehensively enabling the whole process of “generation, transmission, transformation, distribution and utilization” of power system, accelerating the evolution of smart grid, Promote the construction of industrial Internet in power industry.
For example, in the manufacturing scene, the combination of F5G with AI, cloud, machine vision and other technologies can greatly improve the quality inspection efficiency of the product line. Under normal circumstances, product assembly lines such as mobile phones, PCs and servers all involve multiple quality inspection links. With the help of F5G’s large bandwidth and low delay network environment, we can realize the cooperation between cloud and edge, and implement automatic and intelligent real-time big data analysis of product component images captured by intelligent cameras, instead of manual mechanical repetitive work, Improve quality, increase efficiency and save money to help enterprises move towards intelligent manufacturing.
