The N2000 BMS has two types of link profiles, confirmed profile and unconfirmed profile. Is there any difference in the use of the profiles?
The N2000 BMS introduces the two concepts to make it easier for users to operate profiles. There are not many profiles for users to deliver services. However, a lot of junk profiles are synchronized on the NEs across the network. For easier operations, the profiles are grouped into two types. The profiles that allocate numbers are confirmed profiles.
Confirmed profiles: From the perspective of application, confirmed profiles are those that users need to handle. From the perspective of operation, confirmed profiles are those transferred to the Confirmed Profiles window from the Unconfirmed Profiles window through a Confirm operation.
Unconfirmed profiles: From the perspective of application, unconfirmed profiles are those synchronized with the N2000 from NEs, which users do not need or do not hope to handle (edit); while from the perspective of operation, they are those listed in the unconfirmed Profiles window.
N2000 processing mechanism: The profiles created by users on the N2000 are confirmed profiles, and all profiles synchronized from NEs are unconfirmed profiles by default. The unconfirmed profiles can be confirmed and changed to confirmed profiles by users. No ports can be configured in the unconfirmed profiles.
N2000 operation entry: Open the profile list and select Confirmed Profile or Unconfirmed Profile on the upper right of the list to switch between the two profile windows.
