1.Requirements and Challenges

IT-based education, also known as the e-Education, is undergoing rapid development, especially in the area of basic education. Traditional school organizations are transforming into region-based, resource-sharing enterprises. This centralization of teaching operations is expected to solve many of the problems associated with traditional education models, such as operations inefficiency, duplicate investment, education resource segmentation, and decentralized administration. When high-quality education resources are converged within a region, educators can work together through comprehensive sharing, collaboration, and communications to make significant improvements to the quality of education services.


The integration of services and systems for multiple schools and departments brings the following requirements and challenges to the IT education infrastructure:


  • The regional education information center must support better network, storage, and security systems to meet the need for massive, concurrent data processing.
  • Most regional education networks and schools do not have sufficient bandwidth resources and require equipment upgrades to support high bandwidth services.
  • A unified service system is required to enable multiple management systems to exchange data.

2.Huawei Solution

Huawei's regional e-Education solution integrates education resources into a unified cloud system where data-intensive digital education resources, such as digital teaching materials, teaching videos, e-books, and demonstration videos, are available as needed throughout the region.

2.1 Regional Education Service Platform Solution

2.1.1 Application Scenario

Quality education starts with teachers. Teacher training in new technologies and effective methodologies forms a vital part of the quality of education that students receive. Traditional classroom methods, such as teacher demonstration, discussion, and communication, have limited effects. Regrettably, only a small number of teachers receive training in advanced technologies, and those teachers cannot easily share their knowledge with others. Increasing teacher training or the frequency of training brings additional workloads to stretched school districts and takes time away from innovation and research in other areas.


2.1.2 Solution Description

The Huawei regional e-Education service platform is a unified portal that provides cloud education services for high schools, middle schools, and primary schools. The e-Education platform enables teachers and students to teach, learn, discuss, and communicate ideas and issues from anywhere, at any time.


With the e-Education platform and anywhere, anytime access, data interworking and communication problems disappear. Teachers, students, parents, and school administrators can access the set of services made available to them according to their user rights. Schools within the district can access the management website on the service platform to manage classroom instruction. School administrations can access e-Education management services as well as view, monitor, and collect data of subordinate organizations and schools for improved decision-making and guidance.


2.1.3Highlights

The Regional e-Education Solution offers the following benefits:


  • A service platform based on cloud architecture provides flexible resource distribution for resource utilization gains of 75% or higher.
  • The system automatically balances the load of servers and service systems, ensuring optimal response times.
  • Comprehensive, web-based maintenance tools enable efficient system management and maintenance.

2.2 Regional Education Data Center Solution

2.2.1 Application Scenario

The regional education data center distributes basic resources to departments and schools. The datacenter provides core services, such as computing, storage, and backup. The data center also serves as the public operations environment for key application systems, such as regional education resource management, school registration, and curriculum management. The regional data center has the following requirements:


  • High security and scalability
  • Easy and convenient system operations and management
  • Low operating and maintenance costs

2.2.2 Solution Description
