Recently, the iF Design award unveiled its recipients. 

Huawei's SD-WAN uCPE (universal CPE) AR650 impressed 63 professional judges from around the world and saw off competition from 6402 candidates from 54 countries to take home the top design award. 

After winning Japan's Good Design Award in 2017, the AR650 was once again recognized by the industry for its design and quality.

The AR650 is one of the products from the series of uCPEs used in Huawei SD-WAN Solution and applies to small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). 

The device is usable in various deployment scenarios such as the desktop, wall, or rack. 

Huawei's product language is used for a simple design that focuses on high performance. 

The AR650, based on the ARM (industry's first) or x86 architecture, provides the SD-WAN ecosystem with an open platform that supports the on-demand acquisition of more than 10 mainstream value-added services and facilitates cost-effective SD-WAN interconnection between SMEs.

A review team consisting of over 60 known experts from numerous countries follows comprehensive evaluation criteria and procedures to select award winners, which are judged to have excellent design and be highly usable and innovative.

Huawei Enterprise Gateway Domain GM Wang Shaosen says, “Huawei's SD-WAN uCPE AR650 wins the Good Design award 2017 and iF Design award 2018, which are top design awards in the industry. 

“This indicates that Huawei's product design and quality have been recognized within the industry.”

“Huawei will continuously innovate to improve the product appearance, performance, and quality to provide users with ultimate experience in SD-WAN enterprise interconnection."
