Huawei CE6860-48S8CQ-EI Switch Product Features

  • CE6860 is the industry’s highest-performing 1 U ToR switch. It provides 3200mpps forwarding performance and supports L2/L3 line-rate forwarding.
  • CE6860 provides up to 48*25GE ports, the highest 25GE port density among 1U ToR switches, allowing for high density 10G/25G server access and smooth evolution.
  • CE6860 provides eight 100GE QSFP28 ports. Each QSFP28 port can be used as one 40GE QSFP+ port, four 25GE SFP28 ports, or four 10GE SFP+ ports, providing flexibility in networking. The 100GE uplink ports can be connected to CE12800 switches to build a nonblocking network platform.
  • CE6860 supports the IETF Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links (TRILL) protocol and can connect to 25G and 10G servers simultaneously. CE6850 switches can establish a large Layer 2 TRILL network with more than 500 nodes, enabling flexible service deployments and large-scale Virtual Machine (VM) migrations.
  • CE6860 can work with a mainstream virtualization platform. As the high-performance, hardware gateway of an overlay network (VXLAN), the CE6860 can support more than 16 million tenants.
  • TRILL protocol uses a routing mechanism similar to IS-IS and sets a limited time to live(TTL) value in packets to prevent Layer 2 loops. This significantly improves network stability and speeds up network convergence.

Huawei CloudEngine 6860-48S8CQ-EI Switch Product Features

Huawei CE6860-48S8CQ-EI Switch can be used in campus network scenarios. Its industry-leading high-density full-line 25GE/10GE port, high-performance stack meets the growing demand for network bandwidth. Its rich service features and innovative energy-saving mechanisms make the CloudEngine 6860 a campus switch. The choice of cost performance.

In the typical networking of the campus network, multiple CloudEngine 16800/CloudEngine 12800/CloudEngine 8800/CloudEngine 7800s use CSS/iStack technology as a core switch, and multiple CloudEngine 8800/CloudEngine 7800/CloudEngine 6800 use iStack technology at the aggregation layer. Stacking into a logical switch increases network reliability while simplifying management. At the access layer, the CloudEngine 6800/CloudEngine 5800, which is vertically virtualized by fabric technologies such as iStack and M-LAG, provides high-density line-speed ports.
