Huawei CE8861-4C-EI Switch is 100G Ethernet switch designed for data centres and high-end campus networks. CE8800 switches can function as core or aggregation switches on data centre networks to help enterprises and carriers build a scalable data centre network platform in the cloud computing era. They can also be used as aggregation or core switches for enterprise campus networks.

Huawei CE8861-4C-EI Switch Product Overview

Huawei CE8861-4C-EI Switch provides high-performance, high-density 100GE/40GE/25GE/10GE ports, and low latency. Using the Huawei VRP8 software platform, CE8800 switches provide 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.

Huawei CE8861-4C-EI Switch Features

  • Huawei CloudEngine 8861-4C-EI Switch supports 100GE/40GE/25GE/10GE flexible cards and provides flexible networking capabilities to build a non-blocking network platform with the CE12800/CE7800/CE6800/CE5800 series.
  • Virtualize multiple devices into one logical device to build a scalable, manageable data centre network platform;
  • The stacking system implements redundant backup of the control plane and data plane, avoiding the risk of a single point of failure and greatly enhancing the reliability of the system.
  • The service port is reused as a stack interface. It can not only stack the racks and spans but also support long-distance stacking across areas.
  • Configure service bandwidth and stack bandwidth flexibly according to the actual network size and configure network resources reasonably.
