Introduction to eService

The eService cloud intelligent management system (eService for short) integrates the cloud management, remote maintenance, automatic service request (SR) creation, and prediction and prevention functions to improve user O&M capabilities and takes planned maintenance actions to prevent potential risks.

eService enables the client to work with the cloud system.

  • eService client: It is deployed on the customer side.

    The eService client collects customer device alarms and sends them to the eService cloud system in a timely manner. In addition, it imports plug-ins or interconnects with other systems to implement remote maintenance functions, such as remote inspection and remote log collection.

  • eService cloud system: It is deployed in Huawei technical support center.

    The eService cloud system receives device alarms from the eService client in 24/7 mode, automatically notifies Huawei technical support personnel to handle the alarms in a timely manner, and supports automatic inspection and log collection for devices on the customer side.

Figure 2-4 shows the GUI of eService.
