FutureNet Asia 2023, one of the most highly anticipated ICT events in the Asia-Pacific region, took place in Singapore from October 18 to 19. With over 300 attendees, including prominent leaders from the ICT industry, the event provided a platform for sharing valuable insights on the future of the telecom industry, focusing on network automation and intelligence.

Steven Zheng, the Chief Marketing Officer of Huawei's ADN solution, delivered a keynote speech titled 'Value Creation, Cooperation and Innovation Accelerating towards highly Autonomous Networks'. During his speech, he highlighted the growing momentum of the Autonomous Networks (AN) industry, the rapid development of AN standards and the accelerating commercial use cases of AN. AN is a key foundation of Huawei's all-intelligence strategy. He suggested three actions that can be taken to accelerate the evolution toward highly Autonomous Networks: standards cooperation, technological innovation, and value creation.

1. Standards Cooperation: Industry Prosperity and Leading Business Success

Based on cutting-edge ideas and concepts, the AN industry emphasizes industry leadership, establishing standards and expanding partnerships to guide the evolution of AN practices. These practices enable businesses to achieve leading, successful outcomes through scenario-based innovation, technological advancement and a closed-loop approach designed to generate value. As a result, more and more companies make significant contributions to the industry as a whole. By mutually benefiting from these industry efforts and practices, more partners can be attracted to join the journey towards building a sustainable and prosperous AN industry.

2. Technological Innovation: Innovative Large Models and New Momentum for AN

Leveraging Huawei's AI software and hardware platform and the Pangu large model, more than 100 billion tokens of telecom corpus, and a vast amount of historical O&M data are used to perform incremental training and optimization. This advancement has paved the way for the creation of extensive telecom models capable of supporting AI innovation across various scenario-based applications. It has also contributed to the progression of highly Autonomous Networks, allowing for more intelligent interactions between applications and collaborative decision-making.

3. Value Creation: E2E System Solutions and CSPs' Business Success

Comprehensive system solutions need to be developed to aid CSPs in implementing end-to-end (E2E) service provisioning, end-to-end network operations and maintenance (O&M), and optimizing the user experience throughout the entire lifecycle. These solutions will enable CSPs to launch services quickly, reduce TTM, improve network O&M efficiency and minimize MTTR. By doing so, CSPs can provide a superior user experience, increase user satisfaction and decrease the churn rate.

The concept of AN has progressed from a vision to large-scale deployment. Steven Zheng stated that Huawei will continue collaborating with customers and industry partners to develop more AN key technologies and scenario-based solutions driven by business value, accelerating the evolution towards highly Autonomous Networks.
