At HUAWEI CONNECT 2018, Huawei launched an Intel® Select Solution in NFVI for FusionSphere. Intel Select Solutions for network functions virtualization infrastructure (NFVI) are workload-optimized network solutions designed to simplify the process of selecting and deploying the hardware and software needed for today’s network workloads and applications.
Selecting an Intel Select Solution certified platform enables CoSP’s and ISVs to innovate on top of a proven platform foundation accelerating both application and VNF deployment.

Shang Haifeng, Director of FusionSphere, IT Product Line, Huawei said, “Huawei works closely with Intel to leverage the power of FusionSphere platform software and Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors. The NFVI solution is designed to meet the high-availability requirements of the ’5-9’ of the telecom service. The disaster recovery mechanism is enhanced on the basis of the FusionSphere to ensure efficient and stable operation of the telecom service. At the same time, it also supports multi-vendor equipment and service access, avoiding operators being locked by a single manufacturer and fully protecting the investment of operators.”
Dan Rodriguez, vice president of Communications Infrastructure Division, Data Center Group, Intel said: “Intel® Select Solutions provide optimized, pre-integrated, and fully verified reference designs so that users can simplify and accelerate adoption and deployment of trusted solutions. Huawei’s FusionSphere for NFVI solution enables end users to efficiently implement virtualized network functions and application deployment, achieving flexibility, reliability, performance and ease of maintenance at optimal cost while extracting the maximum benefit from the Intel® Xeon® Scalable platforms.”
In June 2018, GlobalData, the world’s leading IT and telecommunications research organization, released the 2018 Global NFVI Competitiveness Assessment Report. Huawei’s NFVI solution continues to be a leader in the global NFVI market. According to the report, Huawei’s NFVI is widely recognized by operators and is a leader in commercial deployments due to its architectural reliability, easy operation and maintenance capabilities. As of 2018Q1, Huawei has deployed more than 380 NFVI projects, ranking first in the global NFVI market.
