  6. 6. iManager U2000 Optional Feature Description 2 Optional Features (WOFD-900000) Issue V1.0 (2014-03-14) Huawei Proprietary and Confidential Copyright © Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. 2 2 Optional Features (WOFD-900000) 2.1 Security Management WOFD-210100 Encrypted TransmissionAvailability This feature was introduced in V200R005. Summary The U2000 uses encryption protocols such as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), FTP over SSL (FTPS), and Secure File Transfer Protocol(SFTP) to ensure communication security between the U2000 and network entities. Encrypted transmission for the U2000 involves transmission encryption and certificate management. Transmission encryption can be performed between the U2000 client and server and between the U2000 server and NEs. Control channels and data transmission channels based on SSL, FTPS, SFTP, or Hypertext Transfer ProtocolSecure (HTTPS) are established before network entities communicate with each other. This ensures transmission security. To ensure data integrity and non-repudiation during communications, authentication based on digital certificates is performed for involved network entities. The U2000 provides the digital certificate management function based on Certificate Management Protocol(CMP) V2. Currently, this function applies to the U2000 and eNodeBs. Benefits This feature brings about the following benefits:  This feature guarantees the confidentiality of data transmitted through Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and effectively protects privacy of user data.  Certificate authentication prevents untrustworthy connections. This ensures validity of SSL connections and further enhances transmission security.  Users can centrally manage the digital certificates of devices and the U2000, including applying for certificates, activating certificates, and updating certificate revocation lists (CRLs). Description Transmission encryption:
  7. 7. iManager U2000 Optional Feature Description 2 Optional Features (WOFD-900000) Issue V1.0 (2014-03-14) Huawei Proprietary and Confidential Copyright © Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. 3 TCP is used for communications between the U2000 client and server and between the U2000 server and NEs. After SSL-based encrypted transmission is used, an SSL-based encrypted data transmission channel, instead of a common TCP connection, is established between communication parties. Supported SSL protocolversions are SSL 3.0, TLS 1.0, and TLS 1.2. This feature uses certificates for unidirectional and bidirectional authentication between the U2000 and NEs. This ensures access validity. In many scenarios, data is transmitted in files between network entities. For example:  The U2000 obtains performance, log, and configuration files from NEs.  The U2000 delivers performance and configuration files to third-party systems.  NEs download version and patch files from the U2000. FTP uses plaintext for data transmission in bearer networks, where files are exposed to interception. To address this problem, this feature provides secure file transfer based on FTPS and SFTP. Security levels of network entities are determined by their roles and positions in the communications network. The U2000 provides different encrypted data transmission solutions in the following scenarios:  Between the U2000 client and server: SSL, SFTP, and HTTPS  Between the U2000 server and NEs: SSL and FTPS The U2000 supports both encrypted and unencrypted transmission modes. This feature allows users to select data transmission solutions for the U2000 and NEs. Users can check in real time whether the links between NEs and the U2000 use SSL connections. Users can also manually change the status of these SSL connections, if necessary. This feature will decrease the U2000's management capability because complex SSL encryption algorithms occupy a large number of U2000 resources and affect data transmission efficiency. Digital certificate management:  Supporting CMP V2 To comply with 3GPP specifications, the U2000 supports HTTP/HTTPS-based CMP V2. Using CMP V2, the U2000 can establish a channel for managing digital certificates with a Certificate Authority (CA). If NEs cannot directly communicate with the CA, the U2000 can provide agent services for NEs. Agent services allow users to apply for and update certificates.  Managing CA information A CA is an entity that issues digital certificates. Users can set CA information on the U2000, including the IP address, uniform resource locator (URL), protocol, and port. Based on the information, the U2000 establishes a connection with the CA to apply for or update device certificates.  Managing certificates The U2000 supports PEM and DER certificate formats defined in the ITU-T X.509v3 standard. The U2000 can manage device certificates, trust certificates, and CRLs, and provides differentiated management functions for these certificates. A device certificate is a file containing public keys and ownership information. This certificate is digitally signed and issued by the CA and is used for authenticating parities involved in communications. When communicating properly with the CA, the U2000 provides one-stop automatic services for applying for device certificates, including
  8. 8. iManager U2000 Optional Feature Description 2 Optional Features (WOFD-900000) Issue V1.0 (2014-03-14) Huawei Proprietary and Confidential Copyright © Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. 4 creating an application form, applying for device certificates, and delivering the certificates to devices. If the U2000 cannot communicate with the CA, users can manually apply for a device certificate. The procedure is as follows: Users fill in a certificate application form on the U2000 and the U2000 accordingly generates an application file; users submit the application file to the CA and the CA signs the certificate; users then import the signed certificate to the U2000 and deliver it to devices. The U2000 allows users to view device certificates and import them in batches, and activate, delete, and test the device certificates. The U2000 reports an alarm when a device certificate is about to expire, fails to be loaded, has expired, or becomes invalid. This prevents service interruption due to exceptions that occur on the certificate. A trust certificate can be a CA certificate or a certificate chain and it is used for authenticating validity of the peer certificate. The U2000 allows users to view, add, delete, and export trust certificates. A CRL is a list for the CA to record revoked digital certificates. On the U2000, users configure parameters for NEs to automatically obtain a CRL. The parameters include the IP address, access port, and user name of the CA, and the save path and execution mode of the CRL. The U2000 then delivers these parameters to NEs and NEs obtain the CRL based on the user configurations. If NEs cannot obtain a CRL from the CA, users can manually import the CRL to NEs on the U2000. If a digital certificate used for SSL-based data communication between NEs is on the CRL, the communication fails. Enhancement The following functions are added to V200R012C00:  The U2000 supports the SSL protocolversion TLS 1.2.  The U2000 generates an alarm when a device certificate fails to be loaded, has expired, or becomes invalid.

The U2000 provides the following eNodeB power-saving features: dynamic adjustment of power amplifier (PA) voltage, intelligent carrier shutdown, intelligent RF channel shutdown, low-energy consumption mode, and scheduled eNodeB power-on and power-off. − Dynamic adjustment of PAvoltage: Users can adjust the offset voltage of the PA based on different output power and modulation modes to ensure that the PA efficiently runs in power-saving mode in different conditions. − Intelligent carrier shutdown:This function applies to the scenario where an area is covered by multiple carriers. Based on the traffic distribution of each carrier, users can perform related settings so that some carriers are shut down when the carrier traffic is low. Then, the eNodeB enables UEs to migrate to some of the carriers and shut down the carriers whose traffic is low. − Intelligent RF channel shutdown:Based on the distribution of cell traffic volumes, users can perform related settings so that the eNodeB retains only one RF TX channel and shuts down other RF TX channels to reduce static energy consumption in light traffic hours. − Low-energy consumption mode: Users need to force a cell to switch to low-energy consumption mode in case of exceptions such as power supply undervoltage. Then, users can reduce specifications such as the cell TX power and available service bandwidth of cells to prolong the U2000 service duration. − Scheduled eNodeB power-on and power-off:This function applies to special scenarios such as the high-speed railway coverage scenario. If the traffic volume within a time segment is 0, the U2000 automatically powers off the eNodeB during the time segment.

Summary The U2000 provides centralized monitoring and maintenance on eCNSs in an eCNS redundancy pool. The managed items include data configuration of the eCNS redundancy pool, data consistency check, and performance monitoring of the redundancy pool. These functions meet requirements for site deployment and routine operation and maintenance. Benefits This feature provides centralized management and monitoring functions. This allows users to manage and maintain the redundancy pool network directly, conveniently, and quickly. This reduces OPEX. Description This feature allows one eNodeB to belong to multiple eCNSs. The UEs to be connected are distributed into appropriate eCNSs according to the capacity ratios of the eCNSs. Then, UEs can share eCNS resources. If an eCNS is faulty in the eCNS redundancy pool, the eNodeB identifies the fault and switches over the new UE services that are to be assigned to the faulty eCNS to other properly working eCNSs in the pool. This implements redundancy between eCNSs in the pool. This feature implements centralized monitoring and maintenance of eCNS redundancy pools and eCNSs in the pools.  This feature allows users to create, delete, and modify an eCNS redundancy pool, browse the pool information, and show the pool in a topology view.  This feature allows users to centrally modify and deliver parameters related to eCNS redundancy.  Provides automatic and manual data consistency check for an eCNS redundancy pool: − In automatic check mode, the U2000 periodically checks data (including subscriber registration data) consistency of eCNSs in the eCNS redundancy pool and generates check results. Based on the check results, the U2000 automatically generates a data adjustment script. The script needs to be executed manually. − In manual check mode, a user selects eCNSs and related data items to perform the immediate data consistency check.  Performs real-time load monitoring for a minimum of 30-second period. The U2000 monitors the number of subscribers served by each eCNS, number of activated subscribers, and total number of subscribers, and displays the load changes in a column or line chart.  Supports real-time monitoring of eCNS loads in the eCNS redundancy pool, and centrally displays the comparison information about all eCNS loads in a chart.
