At the recently held Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018, Huawei launched its Event as a Service solution. This solution uses Huawei’s CloudCampus technology to enable carriers to quickly deploy and manage Wi-Fi networks and online services for trade shows and other events.
Using this solution, Huawei itself deployed a network for MWC, setting up Wi-Fi for 10,000 square meters of floor space within just three days, and delivering an inspired experience and value-added services.
More and more trade events need Wi-Fi networks, and they expect a better experience for their users. Existing solutions involve heavy investments of capital and labor to deploy, along with costly local management. And they are not flexible enough for today’s needs. Huawei launched the Event as a Service solution to respond to these needs, delivering event networks and value-added services on the cloud.
This solution delivers cloud-based management and open platform across the entire network lifecycle. It also offers open APIs that enable online subscription, quick deployment, flexible scalability, and on-demand provisioning of network services. Big data analytics and AI deliver a high-quality network experience and diverse value-added services.
In addition to LAN networks, the solution also offers SD-WAN to interconnect multiple event halls and enterprises. LAN and WAN networks can be managed together on the same platform. For MWC, Huawei quickly deployed the Wi-Fi networks and delivered intelligent network management to improve the user experience. It is also providing value-added services including user profiling, customer flow analysis, and event information delivery.
“With Event as a Service solution, we have cloudified and servitized event networks,” said Su Liqing, Director of the Huawei Information Technology Department. “The ability to manage WAN and LAN on a single cloud platform means quick network deployment, an inspired experience, and value-added services. This will help carriers succeed in their business.”
As a global ultra-broadband leader, Huawei is exploring the future of network evolution and is committed to providing industry-leading solutions for carriers. Huawei’s Event as a Service solution, based on CloudCampus, will give carriers the ability to deliver event networks as a service from the cloud.
