N1 foundation is like IP-Base or network essential in Cisco.
N1 advance is enterprise services/IP Services/network advance in Cisco.
You can beat on switch throughput, performance and essentially price.
Cisco only offered in terms of 3 year and 5 years, Huawei is flexible.
I'll check and add more points as I find them.

Thx. If it possible give me a table of compliance between N1 and Cisco Network essential/advantage +Cisco DNA essentials/advantage/premier.
And what about - In SCT Unistar when i try to configure N1 Mode for S5731 system notify me that i need to add big data analytics platform running on AC3.0 and CampusInsight.
Is it nessesary or it can be added only if needed?

Hi,

It only confirms the typical scenario in a network (where complete network including core, agg and access are running N1 Campus). you can order 'on-premises' N1 without any other issue.

As far as, battlecard/comparision is concerned, I haven't seen any such document for these new devices as both are relatively new for Cisco as well as Huawei. If I find any such document, I'll update here

@Atar hello,
Traditional license files are purchased based on function items and are permanently valid. The license files cannot be upgraded on the ESDP website. Therefore, users need to purchase licenses for new controlled license functions. The overall purchase cost is high and the investment risk is uncontrollable.

The N1 software package is sold as a whole based on the solution scenario. Users can select the validity period. Within the validity period of the annual fee, if the N1 software package has new function items, users can upgrade the license file on the ESDP website to obtain a new N1 software package without purchasing it again. This reduces the overall purchase cost and saves the customer investment.

Thx. Of course i can understand differences between Traditional and Subscription model. Is the N1 Mode same for all types of witches or features in N1 Mode for S5731 different than features in N1 Mode for CE16800.

In SCT Unistar when i try to configure N1 Mode for S5731 system notify me that i need to add big data analytics platform running on AC3.0 and CampusInsight.

Can anybody explain how to beat (for example) Cisco C9200L Network Essentials with DNA Essentials/ (or) Advantage license. 

N1 needs AC3.0

Hi!

The N1 licensing model seeks to give greater flexibility and a better price when acquiring some equipment under this model (such as: FW, SW, APs). It is a model that has become popular in the market.

I had a similar problem and with the help of the solution managers we came to this documentation that explains in general terms how this licensing works, I attached a link where you can learn more about it:

I hope it helps you.
