SOHO Commercial Market Digital Transformation Solution

For the workers in the grid, WiFi is the food to renew life, every day there are countless online meetings, but want to carry out the whole smooth sometimes difficult, video card into PPT, voice listen to half guess half, camera black screen, the most headache is, from the office area to the leadership house to report on the work, WiFi also dropped. Nowadays, enterprises in thousands of lines and industries are using digital means to explore the road of digital transformation of enterprises. In this process, network and security is the key base for digital transformation. However, for most enterprises, what should they do as they do not have sufficient budget or professional operation team, but have a strong will to do well in digital transformation, especially the construction of network and security?

New network challenges for SOHO enterprises in the post-epidemic era

In the new era of digitalization, the network level, network security and network tariffs of enterprises, especially SMEs, have been the focus of social concern and one of the key directions of national services for people’s livelihood. 2021 government work report clearly proposes to enhance the innovation capability and specialization of SMEs, increase network construction, enrich application scenarios and coordinate the layout of new industries.

Since the onset of the new crown pneumonia epidemic, it has brought serious challenges to the high-quality development of our economy. The ability of SMEs to withstand risks is generally weak, and the prevention mechanism in the face of emergencies is not perfect, and among them, SOHO enterprises are facing many problems such as lack of personnel, lack of market, lack of supply, lack of funds and lack of services. Official data show that nearly 16 million SOHO enterprises, mainly office, retail, chain, accommodation and catering enterprises, are among the more affected enterprises in the epidemic in 2020. For their medium and long-term development, it is imperative to sort out their transformation needs, fill the “gap” between traditional business scenarios and digital technologies, and accelerate digital transformation.

After fully investigating the needs of the SOHO business market. Huawei launched new network products that fully fit the SOHO business market, including AR700 series converged gateways, AP360 and AP160 series WiFi 6 APs, and multiple series of Huawei Qiankun Cloud Service products, which focus on the SOHO business market, such as chain supermarkets, SMEs, township governments, SOHO offices, stores, small and medium schools, real estate, hotels and corporate offices. and many other scenarios. This is another effort by Huawei to upgrade its network products for the SOHO commercial market since it started to focus on this market in 2020, and to enable the digital transformation of enterprises.

Build a high-quality wireless network for the SOHO business market

A quality office network is productive in the era of digital transformation. In the past two years, SOHO office has undergone 2 significant changes, the first is the cloud of business applications, the second is the wireless terminal access side. According to IDC forecasts, by 2025, there will be more than 14 billion connected non-IoT devices and 41 billion connected IoT devices worldwide. At the same time, as users increasingly access high-bandwidth applications, their demand for low-latency networks is growing. But IDC’s research found that 62 percent of current respondents said they are “fairly satisfied” with their existing WiFi networks, indicating that there is still room for wireless networks in the enterprise to achieve the same quality of connectivity as wired networks.

The wireless network, as a carrier of terminal diversification and office mobility, is currently facing great challenges: first, the bandwidth of wireless network is low and there is no certainty of guarantee; second, there are blind spots in coverage, and many small and medium-sized enterprises do not have professional technicians to plan and operate and maintain their office networks, and eventually, after the actual construction, there are blind spots in coverage, which cannot guarantee the network experience of office; third, after the wirelessization of terminals, there are more and more mobile terminals such as cell phones, pads and notebooks, and more than 90 percent of office scenes are used for mobile office, and there are problems of roaming and mobile dropouts.

To address these three challenges, Huawei released the latest ceiling WiFi 6 products AP363 and AP365, as well as the 86-type panel AP AP163 and AP165. with up to 3 000 Mbps large bandwidth, as low as 10 ms roaming latency, with the exclusive intelligent antenna, to create a continuous coverage of high-quality wireless network for enterprises.

To fully meet the needs of office networks and continue to unleash the innovative power of SOHO enterprises, Huawei WiFi 6 Ceiling AP, AP363 and AP365 feature high bandwidth, wide coverage, and zero lag. WiFi 6 AP360 series products use the latest WiFi 6 chips, support 160 Hz bandwidth, and can support up to 3 00 0 Mbit/s theoretical rate of the whole machine, which is more than 60 % ahead of the industry. At the same time, Huawei has truly integrated intelligent antennas into the AP360, which enables the signal to move with people, easily penetrate an additional wall, and improve coverage by more than 20 percent; zero lag can be achieved when roaming, based on AI big data analysis capabilities, combined with the end-management cooperation of APs and Huawei terminal devices, and Huawei’s exclusive scheduling algorithm for APs, which can achieve a roaming delay of 10 The roaming delay is within 10 ms to achieve deterministic network delay.

Connectivity Everywhere, Business Always Online

Digital transformation, network first. Data statistics show that 89% of SMEs are in the exploration stage of digital transformation. In the process of promoting industrial upgrading, SMEs have limited scale, limited capital investment, and insufficient capacity in transformation talents, data collection, and application of new-generation information technology. Especially in the network construction, there are many network problems in different enterprises in different industries and in different scenarios. For example, in the chain super scene, restaurants, clothing stores, mini supermarkets and fruit stores, wireless POS, code guns and other payment data and inventory data are often affected by the network, can not be real-time transmission, thus affecting the normal operation; in the smart home scene, the device needs to connect to the wireless network, facing the traditional WiFi facing low wireless network speed, mobile easy to drop, configuration opening complex and unattractive problems.

As a digital enabler, Huawei continues to build the ultimate platform, in addition to SOHO office, but also for the chain of supermarkets, real estate front loading and other scenarios to create a series of SOHO new products and solutions. In addition, Huawei also released Huawei Qiankun cloud service products, using innovative cloud-side integration architecture, by providing SaaS subscription services, real-time online upgrade, 7 × 24 h dynamic defense “three” capabilities, aimed at creating a one-stop security services for enterprises.

Huawei’s new AR700 converged gateway, together with Huawei WiFi 6 AP, will create a non-disruptive network for chain superstores. Huawei has introduced a wireless network solution that is “beautiful, fast, stable and easy”. Through the special appearance design, small and beautiful, can reach 3 000 Mbps theoretical bandwidth, and achieve the stability of the autonomous network, to achieve the stability of signal coverage, bandwidth stability, as well as the stability of the time delay during the movement. It requires only one or two steps of minimal deployment by the consumer to achieve an ideal network experience. This effect is achieved by relying on Huawei WiFi 6 86 panel APs, AP163 and AP165, which are not only suitable for pre-installed in houses, but also used in hotels, SOHO offices and other scenarios.

In the past 10 years, Huawei has been committed to the enterprise market, for the government, finance, transportation, electricity, large enterprises and other enterprise customers to provide solutions close to the customer scenario, but also achieved certain results. In the SOHO business market, Huawei’s new products for DTH are completely tailored for the SOHO business market on top of the advantages of the enterprise market. Today, Huawei has provided many SOHO businesses with high-quality easy-to-use and stable one-stop solutions. Behind these is the result of Huawei’s repeated iterative innovation on the customer side and its own product side over the years. And through Huawei’s efforts, we hope that all enterprises and employees can realize their wishes: business is always online and office never falls off the grid.
