Huawei S5731-S48T4X-A Switch is Gigabit access switch providing all-GE electrical ports with 48 x 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet ports, 4 x 10GE SFP+ ports AC power supply Forwarding performance: 125 Mpps and Switching capacity: 176 Gbps/672 Gbps
Huawei S5731-S48T4X-A Switch Overview
The switch is developed based on next-generation high-performing hardware and Huawei Versatile Routing Platform (VRP). At the same time, S5731-S supports simplified operations and maintenance (O&M), intelligent stack (iStack), flexible Ethernet networking. It also offers enhanced Layer 3 features and mature IPv6 features. Thereofre, S5731-S can be used in various scenarios. For example, it can be used as an access or aggregation switch on a campus network or as an access switch for Metropolitan Area Network.
VXLAN is used to construct a Unified Virtual Fabric (UVF). As such, multiple service networks or tenant networks can be deployed on the same physical network, and service and tenant networks are isolated from each other. This capability truly achieves ‘one network for multiple purposes’. The resulting benefits include enabling data transmission of different services or customers, reducing the network construction costs, and improving network resource utilization.

Huawei S5731-S48T4X-A Switch Features
- S5731-S supports Smart Link. One CloudEngine S5731-S switch can connect to multiple aggregation switches through multiple links, implementing backup of uplinks and significantly improving reliability of access devices.
- S5731-S supports Ethernet OAM (IEEE 802.3ah/802.1ag) to detect link faults quickly.
- S5731-S uses the mature, stable VRP platform and supports IPv4/IPv6 dual stack, IPv6 RIPng, and IPv6 over IPv4 tunnels (including manual, 6-to-4, and ISATAP tunnels). With these IPv6 features, S5731-S can be deployed on a pure IPv4 network, a pure IPv6 network, or a shared IPv4/IPv6 network, helping achieve IPv4-to-IPv6 transition.
- S5731-S is equipped with two removable power modules that can work in 1+1 redundancy backup mode.
