Huawei touts Application-driven Network architecture for service providers

Huawei revealed what many are calling a "radical" new vision for service provider networks that it says will result in significant application-efficiency gains for networks. Called the Application-driven Network architecture, Huawei said that ADN will support application abstraction, network reprogrammability, global and local coordination of network resources, and application decoupling by service layering.

The company revealed the ADN architecture at a IEEE Globecom 2015 conference in San Diego and said that ADN differs from existing NFV and SDN concepts while integrating NFV and SDN technologies into a comprehensive network architecture that focuses on user experience. ADN also will support 5G network slicing, the vendor said.  Article
