S5720S-LI Series Simplified Gigabit Ethernet Switches

The S5720S-LI is a next-generation, energy-saving gigabit Ethernet switch that provides flexible GE access ports and 10 GE uplink ports.

Building on next-generation, high-performance hardware and the Huawei Versatile Routing Platform (VRP), the S5720S-LI supports intelligent stack (iStack), flexible Ethernet networking, and diversified security control. It provides customers with a green, easy-to-manage, easy-to-expand, and cost-effective gigabit to the desktop solution.

Huawei S5720S-LI series Ethernet switches are only sold in several countries and regions as part of Huawei’s channel distribution products.

Choose S5720S-LI Series Next-generation Simplified Gigabit Ethernet Switches to provide an energy-saving and cost-effective gigabit to the desktop solution

  • Support intelligent stack (iStack) with a stacking bandwidth of 96 Gbit/s, and implement electrical port stacking for easier stack set-up and lower costs
  • Support various Layer 3 routing protocols (such as RIP and OSPF), and work as a Super Virtual Fabric (SVF) client that is plug-and-play with zero configuration
  • Use energy-saving technologies such as port sleep and automated port power adjustment, and provide various fan-free models to enable noise-free GE to the desktop
