Overview of EasyDeploy

Overview of EasyDeploy


EasyDeploy is a collection of functions that facilitate device operation and maintenance.

EasyDeploy enables a device to automatically load version files, including system software, patch files, web page files, and configuration files. It simplifies network configuration, implements remote service deployment, and allows centralized device management.


EasyDeploy improves efficiency of device deployment, routine maintenance, and faulty device replacement, although reducing labor costs.

EasyDeploy can be used in the following scenarios:

  • Unconfigured device deployment

    After new switches are installed and powered on, they start the EasyDeploy process to automatically load configuration files, patch files and other required files. If an unconfigured switch is deployed, specifying the configuration file is optional.

    With EasyDeploy, a network administrator does not need to be on site to commission switches. On an unconfigured switch, both the configuration files for current startup and next startup are not specified.

  • Pre-configured device deployment

    Before delivery, a device can load a configuration file that contains commands for specifying file server addresses, name of an intermediate file for site deployment, and a shared key between the device and an SNMP host. After your simple login configuration, the device can automatically obtain and load correct configurations.

    A pre-configured device refers to a switch that has loaded a configuration file before it is delivered.

  • Faulty device replacement

    During routine maintenance, EasyDeploy can periodically back up configuration files to a file server. When a faulty switch is replaced by a new one, the new switch downloads the configuration file of the faulty switch according to the backup information and activates the downloaded configuration file. In this scenario, EasyDeploy provides a plug-and-play device replacement solution.

  • Batch upgrade

    During routine network maintenance, the network administrator can add devices that all require the same upgrade files and specify upgrade files for the entire group. EasyDeploy allows multiple devices to be upgraded in a batch.

  • Batch configuration

    During routine network maintenance, EasyDeploy allows the network administrator to edit a command line script to issue commands to multiple devices, eliminating the need to configure these commands one by one on the devices.

  • Addition of configured devices to the management domain of the Commander

    If you need to monitor and manage configured devices on a network running EasyDeploy, add the configured devices to the management domain of the Commander.

On a configured switch, EasyDeploy supports Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) encryption. By default, DTLS encryption is enabled. In the unconfigured device deployment scenario, a switch can be normally deployed regardless of whether DTLS encryption is enabled.
