eSight Unified Management Platform

With the ever-growing information-led transformation in enterprises, the application of information and communications technology (ICT) is experiencing an explosive growth and ICT systems have become increasingly complicated. Various ICT devices (including videoconferencing devices, IP phones, and video surveillance devices) as well as emerging technologies (including cloud computing and bring-your-owndevice) have been used in enterprise production and office automation (OA) systems. ICT systems have become inevitable for supporting enterprise production and operation.
However, enterprises have deployed a large number of network devices, storage devices, servers, and service systems from a variety of vendors, which has posed great challenges to IT administrators. Services have been severely interrupted by inevitable device faults. In this case, the main task of ICT departments is to ensure the stability and reliability of the ICT systems, making the operation and management (O&M) of the ICT systems a top priority of ICT administrators.
The diversified ICT services call for a refined ICT management system. How to centrally manage all network devices? How to promptly alert, locate and solve a problem? The answer is to deploy a unified and highly-efficient management system. Huawei eSight ICT O&M system can help enterprises maintain a stable and orderly ICT system and effectuate information-led transformation by reducing labor costs, time investment, and capital investment.

Huawei eSight ICT O&M system is a Huawei new-generation solution for enterprise users to centrally manage the basic network, unified communications (UC), telepresence meetings, video surveillance devices, and data centers. The system monitors and manages devices of different types and from various vendors. It also monitors and analyzes network and service quality to enable unified management and intelligent linkage over enterprise resources, services and users. Meanwhile, eSight provides a flexible open platform for enterprises to customize their own network management systems.


eSight has the following compelling features:


eSight is a lightweight system for users to monitor network running status by accessing networks anytime and anywhere.

  • eSight supports the Browser/Server (B/S) architecture, which requires no client installation. The lightweight design and web-based management minimize system maintenance and upgrade costs and workload.
  • eSight can run on laptops, providing a better user experience.


eSight provides an impressive array of components. Enterprises can choose appropriate components to build customized O&M platforms based on their service requirements.

  • eSight provides a unified platform of the same style and superior user experience.
  • eSight supports on-demand services. Users can purchase components based on their needs, which reduces investment costs.

eSight can manage devices from multiple vendors, bringing a high-level ease of use for the network administrators.

  • Comprehensive device management capability: eSight fully supports the management of Huawei routers, switches, access routers (ARs), security devices, WLAN services, UC, and storage devices. eSight also pre-integrates the capabilities to manage mainstream devices from third-party vendors, such as HP, Cisco, and H3C.
  • Third-party device customization: eSight allows users to customize vendors, device types, performance management, and alarm management.


eSight is a comprehensive fault monitoring system which keeps users abreast of the network running status. When a fault occurs, eSight quickly locates and rectifies the fault.

  • eSight supports 24/7 fault monitoring as well as real-time and remote fault notification.
  • eSight allows users to quickly locate faults in the topology and on the device panel.
  • eSight allows users to consolidate and mask alarms to reduce the number of alarms displayed.


eSight intuitively displays the network status.

  • Topology management: eSight graphically and hierarchically displays network devices as well as the status of network elements (NEs) and links in the physical topology and IP topology.
  • Performance management: eSight provides diverse performance monitoring indicators, which presents the network status from multiple angles. eSight displays performance monitoring indicators in diverse diagrams, keeps refreshing the diagrams continuously, and compares the current data with historical data and analyzes the result.


eSight simplifies routine O&M and lowers the requirements on maintenance personnel and improves their work efficiency.

  • Smart configuration tool: eSight provides a smart configuration tool for users to configure devices in batches by selecting a pre-integrated service configuration template or using a plan sheet.
  • Configuration file manager: eSight provides configuration file backup, comparison, and restoration. eSight supports instant, periodical, and alarm-triggered backup. When a device configuration change alarm is generated, eSight automatically backs up the configuration file of the device.
  • Smart reporter: eSight provides predefined reports and also allows users to customize reports based on the industry features and users' O&M requirements.
