Huawei CloudFabric 3.0 Comes Top in L3.5 Data Center Autonomous Driving Networks

During the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2022, Tolly Group — a global provider of testing and third-party validation and certification services — released a comparison test report between Huawei CloudFabric 3.0 Hyper-Converged Data Center Network Solution and a mainstream data center SDN solution. According to the report, Huawei CloudFabric 3.0 Solution received 3.51 points — far higher than the 2.8 points given to the mainstream data center SDN solution — and is the only L3.5 data center autonomous driving network solution among all solutions ever verified by Tolly.

Digital transformation results in exponentially more complex data center networks; cloudification and new applications are constantly changing and are increasingly demanding of networks; and the network scale increases drastically, with a large number of multi-vendor network devices.

To address these challenges, Huawei puts forward its vision of autonomous driving networks to cope with the increased network complexity that results from technological innovations, as well as realize automated network O&M similar to autonomous vehicles. Autonomous driving networks are categorized into levels L0 to L5. Each level has different key capabilities and features, covering the entire lifecycle from network planning and construction to maintenance and optimization.

According to the index evaluation system for data center autonomous driving networks, Tolly has conducted over 150 index tests spanning 39 subcategories in six categories (planning and design, deployment and provisioning, service provisioning, monitoring and troubleshooting, network change, and parameter adjustment) across the four phases (Day 0, Day 1, Day 2, and Day N) of the data center lifecycle. Huawei CloudFabric 3.0 was given a score of 3.51 points, and is the only data center network solution that Tolly has ever evaluated to implement L3.5 autonomous driving.

Kevin Tolly, the founder and CEO of Tolly Group, said: “Huawei CloudFabric 3.0 Hyper-Converged Data Center Network Solution has significant advantages in aspects of heterogeneous device management, simulation and verification, unified multi-cloud orchestration, network health evaluation, and risk prediction.”

Amid accelerated digital transformation of enterprises, data center networks evolve from single-cloud and single-DC to intra-city active-active, remote disaster recovery, and multi-clouds or hybrid clouds. Against this backdrop, issues such as complex multi-vendor management, difficult multi-cloud interconnection, and extremely complex large-scale O&M have become more notable.

Huawei CloudFabric 3.0 Hyper-Converged Data Center Network Solution upgrades single-cloud, single-DC, and single-vendor networks to multi-cloud, multi-DC, and multi-vendor networks featuring full-lifecycle automation and network-wide intelligent management. In addition, leveraging innovative technologies such as AOC 3.0, digital twin, and knowledge graph, Huawei CloudFabric 3.0 implements heterogeneous network management, cross-cloud service provisioning within seconds, and simulation and verification, as well as locating faults between applications and networks in minutes in an end-to-end manner. This solution facilitates agile service innovation and enables real-time service provisioning.

NowCM opens its main developer hub in Portugal

By doing so NowCM joins the vibrant Portuguese tech scene of established and new players. This further strengthens the position of NowCM as the leading European primary capital markets service provider.

“Now is the time! It was the right choice at the right time”- says CEO and Founder, Robert Koller.

As the world’s first fully compliant and cloud-native transaction management platform and regulated primary marketplace, NowCM opens its third European office in sunny Portugal.

The decision to choose Portugal as a new location was based on a list of comprehensive criteria of key cultural and growth factors, including availability of top talent, fintech ecosystem, regulation, entrepreneurial mindset, and work-life balance.

Robert adds: “We are solution-seekers and bold builders of the future of finance. Our fast-growing team consists of 40 diverse individuals amongst which are 20 in-house IT experts whose skills we are very proud of. We value our people and their time by offering them a state-of-the-art tech tooling arena and meaningful responsibility in helping to shape the global financial future rather than burning energy on daily repetitive manual tasks in a square city office space. NowCM is a catalyst in the digitisation of primary markets beyond process automation. Our concept shows the intelligence of focusing on live execution of important transactions rather than on out-dated Excel and Word processes.”

Portugal with its good weather and one of the best life quality indexes for expats (according to InterNations, Expat Insider 2022) is a perfect location for NowCM’s strategic expansion. NowCM new office is located in Lagoas Business Park, where global tech companies like Google, Samsung, Dell and Cisco among others are based.

NowCM Tron-style office design features sustainable solutions like indoor farms and game-changing futuristic experiences to create a new safe, productive and enjoyable place to work in creative and smart ways. It will serve as a hub for employees as well as a location for client training programmes.

“After COVID-19 the office experience won’t remain as it was before the pandemic. In NowCM we know that virtual collaborations are working well, however we believe there should be a new era of tech spaces to meet and ask important questions, to develop collaboration, productivity, culture, and work experiences” – says Robert.

Last week NowCM welcomed its global team in their new office in Lagoas Business Park and held an opening event for its team and family members together with business partners, clients and journalists. A big surprise during the event was a drone race (organised by NowCM partners www.dronesnco.com), where everyone could support one of the pilots and explore the NowCM office from a different angle.

Safenetpay changes its name to Moneff

Safenetpay announced its rebrand and name change to Moneff. The rationale behind the new name has been to more closely reflect the change in Moneff’s proposition from a pure payments company to an expanded portfolio of streamlined and efficient services to support SMEs.

SMEs and entrepreneurs need easy-to-access solutions that manage their money. Despite SMEs making up 99% of all registered businesses in the UK, high street banks and mainstream lenders continually overlook or reject entrepreneurs, and charge extortionately high rates for business accounts and cross-border transfers.

Moneff helps small businesses move their money more efficiently by providing a one-stop hub for free* multi-currency business accounts, transfers with competitive FX rates, card issuing and online payment processing services. By creating a global financial infrastructure using innovative API-led cloud technology and leveraging strategic partnerships, Moneff aims to create a fairer and more progressive financial ecosystem for the 22.6 million small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) across the UK and EU.

“We felt it was necessary to change the name of the company to more accurately reflect our offering of helping small businesses manage their money efficiently,” said Sanjar Mavlyanov, CEO and founder of Moneff.

“We want our customers to be focused on improving their business, rather than being distracted by dealing with multiple vendors. That’s why we are building an ecosystem of business tools that helps companies grow and save them money” added Dilshod Mikhmanov, Moneff’s Co-founder and CFO.

By providing small businesses with free*, borderless and frictionless e-money accounts, Moneff is democratising the customer experience by putting their needs first and offering a true money solutions alternative for businesses of all types. Moneff prides itself in providing high levels of customer service, and is always seeking to refine and develop our business practices to achieve best results for its clients.

* Subject to eligibility criteria.

Singapore holds lead position in Omdia Fiber Development Index

Singapore has again emerged as leader in Omdia’s Global Fiber Development 2022 Index, with maximum scores in seven of the nine metrics. It is closely followed by South Korea, China, the UAE, Qatar, and Japan. All territories in the leading cluster benefit from strong national broadband plans with ambitious targets around ultra-high-speed services.

Historically, several otherwise highly developed broadband territories that rank lower in the fiber index tended to suffer from less clear or ambitious national plans, providing weaker incentives for operators to invest. However, due in part to the COVID-19 crisis demonstrating how important broadband networks are, governments are now strengthening their broadband targets and increasing their focus and investments in fiber-based infrastructure.

Research Director Michael Philpott said: “Fiber investment is an essential metric for government institutions and other stakeholders to track. As a broadband-access technology, optical fiber provides an optimized, highly sustainable, and future-proof quality service. This superior level of quality is essential for the development of future digital services and applications across all verticals.

“With increased efficiency stimulating greater innovation, high-speed broadband has been proven to drive not just consumer satisfaction but national economic indicators such as GDP and productivity. Only by maximizing investment in next-generation access can countries optimize their growth potential, and fiber-optic technology is key to that investment.”

Omdia’s Fiber Development Index tracks and benchmarks fiber a broad set of fiber investment metrics across 88 countries, including:

  • Fiber to the premises coverage
  • Fiber to the household penetration
  • Fiber to the business penetration
  • Mobile cell site fiber penetration
  • Advanced WDM technology investment

Based on Omdia’s analysis of Ookla Speedtest data, the Index also quantifies the overall broadband quality of experience improvements driven by that investment, namely:

  • Median download speed
  • Median upload speed
  • Median latency
  • Median jitter

Michael Philpott and a team of Omdia analysts will be presenting and debating a wide range of upcoming telecoms issues and trends at Network X between 18-20 October 2022. Register for a media pass or request a virtual briefing here.
