Huawei CE8850-64CQ-EI Switch is a new-generation product launched for data centers with 64-Port 100GE QSFP28, Without Fan and Power Module offering High-performance, high-density, and low-latency.

Huawei CE8850-64CQ-EI Switch Product Overview

Huawei CE8850-64CQ-EI Switch offers high-performance, high-density 100GE/40GE/25GE/10GE ports, and low latency. By using the Huawei VRP8 software platform, The switch provides extensive data centre service features and high stacking capability. In addition, the airflow direction (front-to-back or back-to-front) can be changed. CE8800 switches can work with CE12800/ CE8800/CE6800/CE5800 switches to build an elastic, virtualized, high-quality fabric that meets the requirements of cloud-computing data centres.
In a distributed system, RoCE technology becomes the mainstream. To ensure the throughput and meet strict requirements on packet loss, Huawei ultra-fast Ethernet provides forwarding capabilities with high throughput, high reliability, and low latency for the distributed system, which is 25% lower than the average latency in the industry.
In addition, CE8850-64CQ-EI switches support Integrated Network and Computing (INC), improving the computing efficiency in the HPC small-sized packet scenario
CloudEngine 8800 provides telemetry technology to collect device data in real time and send the data to Huawei data center network analyzer iMaster NCE-FabricInsight. The iMaster NCE-FabricInsight analyzes network data based on the intelligent fault identification algorithm, accurately displays the real-time network status, effectively demarcates and locates faults in a timely manner, and identifies network problems that affect user experience, accurately guaranteeing user experience.

Huawei CE8850-64CQ-EI Switch Product Features

Zero configuration of the device, automatic operation and maintenance

  • The CE8800 series switches support the ZTP (Zero Touch Provisioning) protocol, which can obtain version files from the U disk or file server and automatically load them to implement field-free configuration and deployment of devices. This reduces labour costs and improves deployment efficiency.
  • ZTP function supports embedded scripting language and is open to users through Open API. Datacenter users can use their familiar scripting language (Python, etc.) to implement a unified configuration of network devices.
  • ZTP decouples the device configuration time from the number of devices and the geographical distribution, shortens the service online time, and improves service efficiency.

Collaborate with FabricInsight for intelligent operation and maintenance

  • Supports active detection of the entire network path, periodically detects the connectivity of all paths on the entire network based on the sample stream, intelligently locates the faulty node, and monitors the health status of the network at all times;
  • Support full-flow visualization, congestion visualization, and enhance the business experience;
  • Support 1588v2, global high-precision clock synchronization, accurate nanosecond delay detection

Intelligent and lossless, improving high-performance computing reliability

  • In distributed systems, RoCE technology has become the mainstream. To ensure throughput, there are strict requirements for packet loss. Huawei’s intelligent lossless data centre network provides high throughput, high reliability and low latency forwarding capability for distributed systems. The delay is 25% lower;
  • Supports VIQ technology, Huawei customized algorithm, customized virtual queue based on service, refined management, predicts congestion of uplink and downlink queues, and eliminates packet loss in the device
