Shenzhen, China, November 8, 2012]: Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, today announced the launch of wSight, the first carrier-grade management system to help operators realize highly efficient operations and maintenance (O&M) for WLANs.
Data traffic is rapidly increasing in the mobile broadband (MBB) era. More and more operators are deploying WLAN in hotspots due to its capability for highly efficient mobile data access. High density, massive WLAN APs (Access Point) have been deployed in airports, shopping malls, subways, coffee shops, and other areas with highly concentrated user activity, presenting significant challenges for network deployment, configuration, and O&M. Huawei’s wSight, the first carrier-grade management system for WLAN, solve these challenges.
Huawei’s wSight for WLANs serves the same function as standard management systems for telecom networks by providing operators with integrated reports and featuring a smart configuration tool and web-designed infrastructure. The wSight’s integrated reports display network status and network KPIs over a certain period. The wSight’s smart configuration tool is used to mass-manage network equipment and configure other-vendor equipment according to operator requirements. And the wSight’s web-designed infrastructure allows O&M engineers to easily and conveniently manage networks through a web browser.
Huawei’s wSight also provides a consistent Northbound Interface to connect an upper-level management system and meet the unified management requirements for operators’ networks. Huawei’s wSight meets operator O&M needs for WLAN development.
