Huawei Launches eSight New Version to Help Enterprises Create Highly Intelligent, Innovative and Secure Networks

Mar 01, 2013

Shenzhen, China, March 1, 2013–Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, today announced the global launch of eSight new version , an integrated enterprise network management solution specially developed to address network management issues arising from the technological evolutions, such as Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and Software Defined Networking (SDN). With eSight new version, Huawei has created an intelligent, innovative and secure enterprise network management system tailored for ICT users that contains an impressive array of function-rich components, including Access Control Manager (ACM), Data Center (DC) nCenter, and eSight Mobile.

"Even as technology changes, our commitment to enterprise customers remains unwavering in providing the most innovative and effective solutions to meet their needs. With eSight new version, we have made significant updates to make it even more function-rich, while delivering high reliability, intelligence, and security. This means that customers can easily manage their networks, freeing up time and resources to focus on their business areas", said Zhou Rui, senior marketing manager of the Huawei Enterprise Networking Product Mgmt Dept.

As BYOD becomes more prevalent, the need for secure authentication solutions that are easy to manage has intensified. eSight’s ACM utilizes diverse authentication modes to help enterprises overcome challenges and allow users to easily access different components of the network without endangering core network resources. By offering MAC, 802.1x, and Portal authentication modes, eSight ACM is able to securely authenticate a wide range of BYOD-compliant access terminals.

The ability to centrally manage both physical and virtual resources in data centers is crucial to managing the complexity of IT estates. eSight DC nCenter allows for Data central management, and is also able to intelligently sense the migration of virtual machines (VMs) and migrate network policies related to VMs accordingly. In the future-ready SDN architecture, eSight DC nCenter dramatically simplifies network management and improves service rollout efficiency.

Additionally, eSight Mobile, allows for network management anytime and anywhere. IT administrators can download the free app from the App Store and install it on their device for on-the-go network management.

eSight new version has also made significant advances in availability and security. To ensure ease of use, more than 30 improvements have been made to the Graphical User Interface (GUI). eSight new version also offers a two-node hot standby solution that deploys two sets of systems for real-time redundancy backup to guarantee high reliability and availability of enterprise ICT networks.

Since its first release in July 2011, Huawei has continuously improved on eSight by updating and optimizing features to keep pace with customer needs and technology trends. The first iteration, eSight 1.0, provided users with a simple, unified, and easy-to-use enterprise network management platform, and eSight 2.0 increased in functionality to include integrated wired and wireless management, network quality visualization, network traffic visualization, and MPLS VPN visualization. Today, eSight new version builds on earlier generations of the solution to incorporate specific solutions targeted at data centers, cloud computing, and BYOD.

eSight has been widely adopted in the government sector, as well as electric power and finance industries, helping IT administrators to manage networks in a simple, yet highly efficient manner.
