eSight Unified Network Management Platform

As the network scales and the number of enterprise network applications continue to grow, so does the number of devices, such as multi-service routers, gateways, and WLAN Access Points (APs), which enable communication and collaboration in decentralized networks like enterprise campus networks and branch office networks. An increasing number of core and access devices from multiple vendors are used in the enterprise, each with its own management system, creating a nightmare for the system and network administrators.
To alleviate the operational burden, Huawei has developed a unified network management system to provide a comprehensive view and management of all network and system resources, to ensure network stability, and improve O&M efficiency: eSight.
Huawei eSight Unified Network Management Platform provides various editions (compact, standard, and professional) for enterprises. In addition to uniform management of devices from various vendors, topology management, fault management, performance management, smart configuration tool, and configuration file management, eSight Unified Network Management Platform allows users to customize management of third-party devices, helping users to establish a network management system catering for their own needs.

eSight Unified Network Management Platform provides various editions (compact, standard, and professional) for enterprises.

Support Dual System (Only Support By Linux OS).

eSight is a lightweight system that allows users to access the network anywhere anytime to check the operating status.

  • eSight employs the browser/server (B/S) architecture that does not require any client software. The interactive web 2.0 interface offers a superior user experience.
  • The platform can run on a portable computer. The minimum hardware requirement is dual-core 2 GHz CPU, 4 GB memory, and 40 GB hard disk.

eSight can manage devices from different vendors as well as multiple resources to provide unified management across the whole network.

  • Comprehensive device management: In addition to Huawei routers, switches, ARs, security devices, WLAN devices, and firewalls. eSight can manage devices from major vendors such as HP and Cisco. It can also manage IT resources such as servers and printers.
  • Third-party device customization: eSight allows customers to define vendor names, device types, panel style, performance presentation, and alarms for non-Huawei devices.
  • NE adaptation package: Flexible NE packages can realize rapid device adaptation, increasing the types and functions of managed devices.

Comprehensive fault monitoring system enables real-time fault diagnosis, and provides instructions for quick troubleshooting.

  • eSight provides alarms for all types of faults, including IP, IT, and service faults.
  • eSight provides 24/7 fault monitoring, real-time notification, and remote fault notification.
  • The system can quickly switch between fault or topology views and device panels.
  • eSight categorizes and shields alarms to reduce the number of alarms displayed.

Visual management provides clear and detailed network information

  • Topology management: eSight provides physical typology and IP topology, and displays layered network devices on the graphical interface. It also displays sub network maps, network elements, links, and network element status.
  • Performance management: eSight provides various performance counters that customers can use to monitor system performance. The performance view is updated automatically. Reports and charts display performance counters and historical data.

Simple and convenient operation makes it easy for operators to use the system and improves efficiency.

  • Portal customization helps users get the information they need.
  • Intelligent configuration: eSight is preconfigured with multiple common service configuration templates. Users can select the appropriate template to perform the same configurations on devices in batches or use a file to perform different configurations on groups of devices in batches.
  • Configuration file management: Configuration files for multiple devices can be backed up, compared, and restored. The backup function includes immediate backup, periodic backup, and backup triggered by device configuration changes.
  • Intelligent report: eSight provides predefined reports and an easy-to-use report design function so that users can customize reports to meet their own needs.
  • Hierarchical network management: Users at headquarters can view alarm, topology, and performance information from lower-level network management systems.

Disaster recovery (DR) protection ensures service continuity and system reliability.

  • eSight supports two-node clusters in hot standby mode.
  • eSight supports Linux operating systems.
