Huawei S12700E-8 Switch Product Overview

Huawei S12700E-8 Switch is flagship core switches in Huawei’s CloudCampus portfolio.Under building an intelligent campus core, these feature-rich switches can assist customers head towards a service experience-centric campus network that is intelligent and simplified. The switch stands out with massive capacity expansion and flexible service upgrade capabilities to protect customer investments and facilitate their long-term network evolution. Built on Huawei’s high-performance full-programmable chipsets, S12700E delivers 4.8 Tbps of single-slot bandwidth, which can easily scale to 7.2 Tbps simply by upgrading SFUs in the future. S12700E also offers a broad range of line cards, including 100GE, 40GE, 25GE, 10GE, and GE line cards, and provides up to 288 x 100GE ports, the unmatched port density in the industry. These give customers flexible choices to meet their capacity expansion and upgrade needs.
By integrating large-capacity WLAN AC capabilities, a single CloudEngine S12700E can manage up to 10,240 WLAN APs. This capability, combined with free mobility functionality, achieves fully converged wired and wireless networks and policies, greatly simplifying network management with users and services at the core.

Huawei CloudEngine S12700E-8 Switch Features

Full programmable architecture

The S12700E adopts Huawei’s self-developed Solar series of fully programmable architecture chips. When protocol evolution and technology update require forwarding process changes, customers do not need to replace new hardware, and can be supported by software updates. The service is fast and flexible, and protects customer investment. Traditional ASICs The chip adopts a fixed forwarding architecture and forwarding process. The new service cannot be deployed quickly and needs to wait for 1 to 3 years of hardware support.

Wired and wireless convergence

The S12700E has built-in AC, no need to purchase additional AC hardware. The whole machine can manage up to 10K APs. The forwarding performance of the whole machine can reach 4T-bit, which solves the bottleneck of external AC processing performance and calmly faces the high-speed wireless era.

System openness

Support Netconf/YANG, users can automatically configure through Netconf/YANG. OPS (Open Programmability System) is an open programmable system based on the Python language. IT administrators can use the Python script to program the operation and maintenance functions of the switch, quickly realize functional innovation and realize intelligent operation and maintenance.
