With the development of the Internet of Things, more and more objects are connected. In the White Paper on Global Connectivity Index released by Huawei in 2014, it was pointed out that by 2025, the number of global connections will reach 100 billion. According to Gartner's forecast, by 2020, the added value of the Internet of Things will reach 1.9 trillion US dollars. According to the research and pre-judgment of the trend of the Internet of Things, the future will bring 50 billion connections.
Huawei launched an ASIC-based agile appliance solution that allows various items to be automatically networked, free "dialogue" between different objects, and achieves convenient management and maintenance. Mass data can then be used in the physical world and the digital world. Free flow. Next, let us work together to understand the Huawei Agile Initiative.
Huawei's "1+2+1" Internet of Things Strategy
Huawei believes that the business architecture in the field of the Internet of Things includes four levels of "1+2+1":
  • The first sensing control layer, this layer has a large number of sensors;
  • The second is the network layer. The network layer mainly realizes convergence and interconnection, and performs calculation and protocol conversion at the edge.
  • The third is the management and control layer, which is mainly to process data uniformly and manage the network.
  • The fourth is the industry application layer, which is mainly based on a variety of applications in the industry.
For the four-tier service architecture of the Internet of Things, Huawei proposed the "1+2+1" Internet of Things solution:
  • An open source Internet of Things operating system Liteos, which is an operating system suitable for the operation of the Internet of Things intelligent terminal, has the characteristics of low hardware resources (RAM and Flash), low power consumption (energy saving), security and flexible application;
  • Among the two network access methods, Huawei's IoT gateway (AR router) is a converged ICT and IOT gateway device with multiple protocol access capabilities and software-defined converged ICT capabilities. The converged ICT gateway provides an Android operating system and Two kinds of X86 platforms; For LTE/5G access methods, data can be transmitted to the Internet of Things platform through the LTE/5G network;
  • Another "1" refers to a platform that includes cloud data centers, device management, and operations management.
Agile Internet of Things Solutions
In the 1+2+1 Internet of Things solution, Huawei brought the SDN network architecture to the Internet of Things for the first time. Currently, Huawei's Agile IoT solution mainly includes two core components: Agile IoT Gateway and Agile Controller.
Agile IoT Gateway
As the name suggests, it is the bridge between the sensor control world and the Internet world. IoT Gateway realizes IOT terminals (sensors, controllers, and meters) through multiple wireless and wired access (wireless: RF/Zigbee/Bluetooth/WiFi, wired: RS248/RS245/DI/DO/Eth, etc.) , smart devices, etc.) Convergence access, access to the Internet through wired (Eth/xDSL) or wireless (2G/3G/4G/5G) uplinks; Agile IoT gateways not only handle and interface various industry protocols, but also Local processing and local survivability of services are achieved through local computing capabilities.
Agile Controller
The agile controller is a software platform for the Internet of Things and has equipment management functions, calculation management functions, application management functions, and data management functions. In addition, the agile controller can interface with various industry applications through a standard northbound interface. The industry's big data analysis and application, at the same time accept the instructions of the industry application, control and action of the terminal of the Internet of Things.
It is not difficult to see that Huawei has brought innovations in the agile network to the Internet of Things in recent years: the SDN architecture has been introduced into the Internet of Things, the northbound interface has been opened, the interface protocols of various things have been dynamically adapted, and edge computing has been implemented through NFV technology.
At the same time, Huawei's Agile IoT Gateway has three major series of products—Industrial Switching, Industrial Routing, and ICT Convergence Gateway. It is designed for industrial environments and features waterproof, dust-proof, shockproof, electromagnetic-proof, and wide-temperature operation to meet various application environments. Claim.
At present, Huawei has successfully applied IoT solutions in smart buildings, remote meter reading, smart appliance management, smart power distribution, and smart fitness. The Internet of Things (IoT) system is an open ecosystem that requires partners in different fields to cooperate. Huawei is willing to work together with partners to build a prosperous IoT ecosystem and build a beautiful world with full connectivity.
