eSpace EMS
Product Description 1 Overview

Message tracing enables you to create a task to obtain real-time information about UC2.0
service handling processes and use the traced messages to locate faults. The tracing
result can be displayed in a list or chart.
 
 Clear NE upgrade management
The IP PBX, IAD, EGW, IP phone, and SBC (SX1000) can be upgraded in batches.
Upgrade wizard, upgrade monitor, upgrade history, and version management make NE
upgrade clearer and simpler. The eSpace EMS can be upgraded instantly or
scheduledly. In case of IP PBX or UAP3300 upgrade failure, the eSpace EMS supports

upgrade retry and rollback.

Easy Maintenance
The Web-based client of the eSpace EMS does not require installation or upgrade. You
can access the client by using Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox.

Standard Interfaces
NEs access the eSpace EMS over Simple Network Management Protocol Version
3(SNMPv3), Simple Network Management Protocol Version 2c(SNMPv2c), Simple Network
Management Protocol Version 1(SNMPv1), TR069, and SOAP. The upper-layer NMS uses
northbound interfaces to satisfy various access requirements of users over SNMP.

High Security
A secure transmission mechanism is used to ensure access and data security
through hierarchical user management and data encryption.

You can grant device operation rights to specified user groups to improve reliability
and security of the eSpace EMS.

IPv4 and IPv6


The EMS server can support both IPv4 and IPv6, which can help the customer to

four severity levels: critical, major, minor, and warning.

Critical: This kind of fault has seriously affected service and broken down the system,
and it must be fixed atonce. A recovery is needed in case some equipment or resource
 is totally unavailable.

Major: This kind of fault has degraded the service quality and must be fixed at once
in working hours. A recovery
 is needed in case the service quality of some equipment
 or resouce degrades.


Minor: This kind of fault has not degraded the service quality, but will bring about
damage if not checked or handled in time.

3.6 Security Management


Security management is to control the eSpace EMS user permission and user roles, and
ensure security of user accounts and managed devices by means of authentication,
authorization, and encryption.

Role Management
Role management enables you to add, delete, modify, and query roles. Role permission of the
eSpace EMS is a binary group of the MO list and operation list, which means that the user
can perform the operations in the operation list for the objects in the MO list.
When you create or modify a role, you can set or modify the role permission.

By default, the system has a super administrator role which cannot be deleted and whose
permission cannot be modified. You can only modify the description and members.

User Management
User management enables you to add, delete, modify, and query users.

The administrator can set and modify user roles and the access control policies for more
than 20 profiles. The access control policies control login time and login IP addresses.
User role is not mandatory for a user. If you do not have a user role, you can perform only
the operations that are not controlled by permission after login.
User status is normal, disabled, and locked.

If the consecutive failed login attempts exceed the threshold, the user account is
locked. The locked user account can  unlock automatically at the configured time or can
 be unlocked by the administrator.

If a user has not logged in for a long time, the user account is disabled automatically.
In addition, the user accounts can be disabled by the  administrator. Only the
administrator can recover the disabled user account.

You can analyze the service flow and reported content in the tracing result.

Parsing the service flow: distinguishes the incomplete flow from the complete flow in
the reported message and Locates the problem through the incomplete flow. If the
device provides the flow identification, compare flows based on identifications.
Messages with the same identification are in the same flow. If the device does not 
 provide the flow identification, compare flows based on the sequence of the report time.

Product Description 4 System Reliability

4 System Reliability

The eSpace EMS supports self-monitoring, backup and restoration, and security hardening
to ensure system reliability.

Self-Monitoring Capabilities
To ensure reliability, the eSpace EMS provides the watchdog process to monitor its own
applications and processes. If a process abnormally exits, the watchdog process
automatically restarts the process.

Backup and Recovery Capabilities


When Linux is used, the system provides the backup and recovery capabilities to full backup
and restore eSpace EMS files and database data. This ensures the reliability of the system
and database data.

Security Hardening Capability


Security of the system host is reinforced to ensure safe and stable running of the
operating system. Therefore, system services can run safely and stably.
The eSpace EMS server has the following security risks:

A large number of services and ports are opened during operating system installation,
 which leaves the system vulnerable to malicious attacks.

No strict restrictions are imposed on the file rights
 and environment variables, which
