What is the difference between NCE and U2000?Betty
Now Huawei has a new network management system named NCE.
Many customers ask what’s the difference between NCE and U2000? This article will tell you the difference between them.
NCE supports more features than U2000.
U2000 is a traditional network management system. It provides the FCAPS functions, namely fault, configuration, accounting, performance, and security, and supports NE configuration and end-to-end (E2E) service configuration.
NCE integrates the functions of the NMS, SDN controller, and network analysis system. It provides not only traditional FCAPS functions, but also advanced functions such as network visualization, service automation, and intelligent O&M.
The network device management and maintenance functions of the U2000 are mainly migrated to the Network Management app of NCE. The operation interfaces of the Network Management app and U2000 are basically the same, which is user-friendly and shortens the learning curve.
The alarm monitoring and management functions of the U2000 are mainly migrated to the Alarm Monitor app of NCE. NCE supports more diverse management and visualization functions.
Introduction to the NCE System
NCE is an innovative network cloud engine developed by Huawei. Positioned as the brain of future cloud-based networks, NCE integrates functions such as network management, service control, and network analysis. It is the core enablement system for network resource pooling, network connection automation and self-optimization, and O&M automation. NCE is located at the management and control layer of the cloud network:
- NCE manages and controls IP, transport, and access devices on lower-layer networks, supports unified management and control of SDN and legacy networks, and supports automation of single-domain, multi-domain, and cross-layer services.NCE can also connect to a third-party management and control system to implement cross-vendor service orchestration and automation.
- NCE also opens capabilities to support interconnection and integration with upper-layer OSSs, BSSs, and service orchestrators to support quick customization of the application layer. The goal of NCE is to build an intent-driven network (IDN) that is first automated, then self-adaptive, and finally autonomous.
- Automated: Network deployment and maintenance are automated throughout the network lifecycle.
- Self-adaptative: Service policies are automatically generated based on big data using the real-time Analyzer to implement proactive maintenance and closed-loop optimization.
- Autonomous: Artificial intelligence and machine learning are used to build an intelligent network that can automatically generate dynamic policies.
