Huawei’s OWS is an open, programmable, software driven platform with micro services architecture, aimed at managing networks in real-time and on-demand, across both communication technology (CT) and information technology (IT) domains. It improves operational efficiency and performance. By efficiently managing and operating both current IT and telecom networks, Huawei’s OWS has continued to evolve, enabling swift transformation and easy adaptation as infrastructure transitions to ICT hybrid, NFV/SDN virtual networks and future technologies like 5G and IoT. Through this, Huawei aims to lead the industry to help realize operation automation and intelligence.
This technology-neutral certification leverages requirements of the ISO/IEC 27001:2005 management system standard together with the CSA Cloud Control Matrix, a specified set of criteria that measures the capability levels of the cloud service.
The BSI, formed in 1901, as the world’s first national standards body and over a century later is globally recognized as a champion of best practice. CSA STAR certification is jointly developed by the CSA and the BSI, and is an authoritative standard development and preparation body as well as certification service provider worldwide. Developed and promoted by the BSI, ISO 27001 is currently the most authoritative, strict, and widely recognized standard used for managing information security.
Cao Xing, Director of Huawei’s Assurance and Managed Services Solution Development Department, said,” In the digital era, all services are moving to the cloud. This includes privacy measures, data and other services. As a result, legal compliance is required to be stricter. With over 10 years’ experience and practice globally, and continuous investment in security and technology, Huawei’s OWS being certified by CSA STAR is a new beginning for us. In the future, we will continue to cooperate with our partners, working together to improve operational security.”
