Huawei CE12808 Switch Features

VS implements device resources sharing on demand

  • The CE12800 provides 1:16 device virtualization capability through VS (Virtual System) technology, which virtualizes one physical device into multiple independent logical devices to meet multiple service areas (such as production areas, office areas, DMZ areas, etc.) or more. Tenants share the needs of core switches;
  • Create a secure and reliable data centre: the network is divided into multiple logically isolated areas, and single virtual switch failures will not affect other virtual switches, enhancing network security;

CSS simplifies data centre network management

  • CE12800 series switches can virtualize two physical core switches into one logical switch through industry-leading CSS (Cluster Switch System) technology, simplify network management and improve reliability.
  • Support dedicated stack signalling ports, control channels and service channels. Physical isolation enhanced reliability;
  • Supports 3.2 Tbps large stacking bandwidth to avoid network traffic bottlenecks;

High reliability and zero interruption in the whole network

  • The CE12800 series supports a maximum of 367Tbps/1032Tbps switching capacity to meet the sustainable development requirements of cloud computing data centres and to build stable network architecture for the next decade.
  • CE12800 series and CE8800/CE7800/CE6800/CE5800 series TOR switches are jointly networked. Build a large, non-blocking network platform that enables access to tens of thousands of 25GE/10GE/GE servers in a single network.
  • The management plane and control plane of each node of the M-LAG (Multichassis Link Aggregation Group) are independent, which greatly improves the reliability of the system.
