  Build an intelligent wide-area network and open up a new round of networking
Cisco's Intelligent WAN Solution Brings New Transformational Energy to Haier
Beijing, March 12, 2018 - In recent days, Cisco and Haier Group (herein referred to as "Haier") have conducted in-depth cooperation. With Cisco's world-leading SD-WAN intelligent wide area network solution, Haier has redesigned and deployed a wide area network architecture and management. The system relies on network innovation to effectively support the growth and transformation of the business, and achieves efficient resource allocation while accelerating and simplifying IT operations. With its unmatched technical strength in the field of networks, Cisco helps Haier break through the traditional business model, continuously release its innovative potential, and inject new vigor into its world-class brand for the Internet era.
Founded in 1984, Haier Group is the world's largest brand of home appliances, and it has now transformed from a traditional home appliance manufacturing enterprise to an open business platform. In the age of the Internet, Haier is committed to transforming itself into a true Internet company, creating a post-ecommerce business ecosystem that is centered on the community economy, based on user-value interaction, and with integrity as its core competitiveness, to create a win-win ecosystem and become an Internet of Things. The leader of the era.
Haier's vision and mission is to serve as a service provider with a good residential lifestyle that is industry-leading and user-first. Haier has established a dynamic and meshed organization with closed-loop and closed-loop dynamics through the establishment of a single-win-win, self-sufficiency business model. It has built an open platform to become a leader and rule maker in the global white power industry. The leader of virtual reality integration, creating a world-class brand in the Internet era.
The network is playing an important role in the success of the enterprise. However, the ever-evolving all-digital wave brings new challenges to the branch offices and the wide area network. The number of branch users increases rapidly, the scale of mobile terminals continues to expand, and the number and complexity of enterprise applications increases. Sexuality leads to a surge in demand for network bandwidth, and high-risk threats against corporate branches have also become thorny issues.
With the continuous expansion of Haier's domestic and international business scale and the continuous advancement of its all-digital transformation, its wide-area network upgrade plan cannot be delayed. Haier's WAN has 11 types of links and is related to all service departments. The existing WAN system is too complex and flexible enough to meet the needs of business transformation. The urgent task of Haier WAN upgrade is to build a complete WAN architecture and management system to increase the system online speed and realize the automated deployment of branch nodes. This significantly improves the efficiency of IT operation and maintenance while effectively reducing costs and improving bandwidth utilization. Strengthen link protection for critical applications.
Cisco conducted in-depth research on Haier's needs and challenges in building a new generation of wide area networks. It conducted a forward-looking and comprehensive plan for the development needs of Haier's future business, and set different link and service types for the design process. Different intelligent deployment solutions have tailored application- and link-based intelligent wide area network solutions. In the on-site testing, Cisco also demonstrated its strong technical strength. Through the best solutions, it successfully met the needs of all customers' simulated application scenarios. In the end, Cisco gained Haier's recognition and favor with its excellent technical capabilities and perfect solutions.
The customized intelligent wide area network solution for Haier is Cisco's "core brain" of the all-digital network architecture (DNA) solution - the Cisco Application Strategy Infrastructure Controller Enterprise Module (APIC-EM), which provides industry-leading infrastructure Investment protection and innovation capabilities automatically set the entire end-to-end infrastructure for rapid deployment of applications and services.
The intelligent WAN solution deployed by Cisco has several advantages:
  1. Simplify the Internet-based wide area network through the design independent of the transmission mode;
  2. Improve user service experience and WAN efficiency through application visibility and performance optimization
  3. Increase application delivery and WAN efficiency through intelligent path control
  4. Achieve efficient access and secure connection through WAN security control.
First, with Dynamic Multipoint VPN (DMVPN), Cisco provides Haier with a flexible and secure WAN design that can use any transmission method. Dynamic Multipoint VPN is a Cisco IOS software-based solution that can establish IPSec + GRE VPNs in a simple, dynamic, and scalable manner, thereby reducing configuration and supporting contactless deployment;
Secondly, the Live Action application visualization platform provides customers with a visual management and control platform that can intuitively present all the status of the network to facilitate real-time monitoring of customers and achieve optimization of customer experience and improvement of management efficiency.
Furthermore, the solution can use PfR for intelligent path control, monitor network performance and routing applications based on application performance policies, and balance traffic load based on link utilization levels to efficiently use all available WAN bandwidth;
Finally, Cisco has pioneered the security concept: threat-centric security model, threat defense covering the entire attack process, mature solutions - secure connection, enterprise branch threat defense, visualization and analysis capabilities, etc. Provides truly secure WAN transport and Internet access integrated with the Cisco ISR 4000 Series Integrated Services Routers.
Cisco helped bring about four significant results for Haier by deploying an intelligent WAN solution based on an all-digital network:
  • Improve productivity effectively:The Cisco Intelligent Network WAN solution makes full use of network automation to reduce configuration errors, thereby significantly improving the efficiency of Haier network management and maintenance personnel.
  • Provide rapid expansion capabilities:Through the use of Cisco's flexible intelligent WAN solution, Haier's existing deployment method can save 80% of the deployment time compared to the original method, greatly accelerating system on-line time for a single site.
  • Reduce operation and maintenance costs and bandwidth costs:The graphical management interface and application visualization tools provided by the Cisco DNA Center greatly reduce the personnel costs of enterprise operation and maintenance. At the same time, the intelligent wide area network solution effectively protects key applications and can increase bandwidth utilization by more than 30%.
  • Secure core business security:Based on the routing capabilities of Cisco's intelligent WAN, Haier's network reliability at the central office is greatly improved. Once a problem is found on the network, it will immediately switch to an alternative path, which effectively protects the security of the core business.
Haiyang CTO Wang Yanghao highly affirmed the cooperation between the two parties. He said:
“Haier, as the world's leading provider of residential living solutions, is continuing to explore new generations of information technology to guide the manufacturing industry to realize the strategic path and solution for the conversion of old and new kinetic energy. This time we have in-depth cooperation with global technology leader Cisco to plan for The next generation of all-digital enterprise networks has laid a solid foundation for large-scale manufacturing companies to explore new business scenarios and create great commercial value.
Cao Tuqiang, chief technology officer of Greater China, Cisco Global Vice President, said:
“Cisco has always been committed to the future, building a continuous innovation security intelligence platform to promote the prosperity and development of customers and partners, leading the all-digital transition. Cisco is very pleased to cooperate with Haier, with Cisco's superior technical strength and complete solutions. The plan creates unlimited possibilities for Haier to continuously improve its productivity through the use of network advantages.In the future, Cisco hopes to help more manufacturing companies strengthen their core competitiveness and reshape the new business landscape by accumulating and accumulating in different technology fields.
