Huawei 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. An increasing number of operators are deploying WLAN in hotspots due to its capability for highly efficient mobile data access. High density, massive WLAN Access Points (APs) have been deployed in airports, shopping malls, subways, coffee shops, and other locations that experience 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, addresses 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 Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) over a specific period of time. The wSight’s smart configuration tool is used to mass-manage network equipment and configure other-vendor equipment according to operator requirements. 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 operator networks, in addition to meeting operator O&M needs for WLAN development.
