Huawei CE16804 Switch is a data centre switch introduced by Huawei for the AI era.

Huawei CE16804 Switch Product Overview

Huawei CE16804 Switch is the data center switch built for the AI era. It has an embedded AI chip and uses innovative iLossless algorithm to learn and train network-wide traffic, implement zero packet loss and E2E μs-level latency, and achieve the maximum throughput. By using Huawei’s VRP8 software platform, CloudEngine 16800 series provide stable, reliable, and secure high-performance Layer 2/Layer 3 switching capabilities to help build an elastic, virtualized, and high-quality network. Additionally, CE16804 uses an advanced hardware architecture design. The CloudEngine 16800 series provide up to 576 x 100GE, 576 x 40GE, 2,304 x 25GE, or 2,304 x 10GE line-rate ports and use an industry-leading backplane-free Clos architecture and provide industrial- grade reliability. The switches support comprehensive data center service features. Their front-to-back airflow design suits data center equipment rooms, and the innovative energy conservation technologies greatly reduce power consumption.

Huawei CE16804 Switch Product Features

  • The switch upports Border Gateway Protocol – Ethernet VPN (BGP-EVPN), which can run as the VXLAN control plane to simplify VXLAN deployment.
  • BGP-EVPN triggers automatic VXLAN tunnel setup between virtual tunnel endpoints (VTEPs), removing the need for full-mesh tunnel configuration. BGP-EVPN also reduces flooding of unknown traffic by advertising MAC routes on the control plane. With BGP-EVPN, large Layer 2 networks can be established for data centers.
  • Because BGP-EVPN is a standard protocol, the CloudEngine 16800 is interoperable with devices from other vendors, enabling long-term network evolution.
  • CloudEngine 16800 supports centralized and distributed VXLAN deployment and supports various VXLAN access modes, including QinQ access VXLAN. This allows for flexible customization of heterogeneous networks.
  • CloudEngine 16800 series support Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP). ZTP enables the CloudEngine 16800 series to automatically obtain and load version files from a USB flash drive or file server, freeing network engineers from onsite configuration and deployment. ZTP reduces labor costs and improves device deployment efficiency.
  • CloudEngine 16800 uses industry-leading Cluster Switch System (CSS) technology, which can virtualize two physical switches into one logical switch to facilitate network management and improve reliability.
  • CloudEngine 16800 provides a cluster bandwidth of 3.2 Tbit/s. This super-high bandwidth prevents traffic bottlenecks on data center networks.
