XL Axiata and Huawei Launch First Commercial use of Network Digital Map in Asia-Pacific

The network enhances end-to-end SRv6 automation and paves the way for autonomous networks

[Jakarta, Indonesia] XL Asiata, a leading Indonesian provider of telecommunications services, and Huawei successfully completed the live network trial and initiated the first commercial launch of Network Digital Map with an Asia-Pacific carrier. The two parties are now committed to accelerate the deployment of end-to-end SRv6 and network digital map across XL Axiata’s operations.

This commercial use proves that iMaster NCE Network Digital Map — based on the end-to-end (E2E) SRv6 network architecture and software-defined networking (SDN) automation technology — helps XL Axiata foster a digital foundation for autonomous networks. This digital map enables traffic optimization and automatic load balancing, optimize bandwidth efficiency. In terms of latency improvement, it can complete optimization and self-healing in minutes, significantly boosting 4G/5G user experience and XL Axiata’s convergence business consumer. When it comes to premium SRv6 private line services, differentiated SLA assurance is offered to tap into the potential of private line service growth, enabling monetization of premium private line packages.

I Gede Darmayusa, XL Axiata’s CTO said, “In line with its three core strategies — network convergence, digitalization and automation, and customer-centric approach — XL Axiata believes that network infrastructure construction is fundamental to digital transformation.”

Therefore, XL Axiata built a high-efficiency, future-proof, unified network infrastructure for mobile, enterprise, and home services. To support XL Axiata on its journey toward SRv6 automation and autonomous networks, Huawei launched Network Digital Map in iMaster NCE. Given that XL Axiata able to tailor-made requirements from industries, Huawei provides workflows that support B2B private line production and the rollout of diversified product packages, thereby driving new growth.

Hui Wang, Vice President of Huawei’s Data Communication Product Line, said that digital transformation will remain a focus of global development in the next decade, and 5G application experience assurance and the upgrade to differentiated premium private lines will represent two significant opportunities for CSPs to achieve further growth.

“The Network Digital Map in Huawei iMaster NCE will help XL Axiata build a digital foundation for autonomous networks and achieve visualization on one map, demarcation in one minute, and optimization in one click,” Hui Wang said, adding that this will empower the digital ecosystem of SRv6 converged transport networks, improve the quality of enterprise customers’ private lines, and deliver better user experience with 5G applications.

Looking ahead, Huawei will double down on its cooperation with XL Axiata in reinforcing the digital foundation and ramping up the large-scale commercial deployments of Network Digital Map + E2E SRv6 automation with customer-centricity in mind. Together, XL Axiata and Huawei will deliver automatic and intelligent converged IP transport services with the best possible experience, lead digital transformation in the Asia-Pacific region, and set a benchmark for the global digital economy.
