CloudEngine 12800 Series Data Center Switches

Core Innovations for Cloud Data Center Networks



CloudEngine 12800 Series Data Center Switches

Huawei CE12800 series switches are next-generation, high-performance core switches designed for data centers and high-end campus networks. They provide stable, reliable, secure, and fast L2/L3 switching services and help build an elastic, virtual, agile, and high quality network.

The CE12800 provides 178/1,032 Tbit/s ultra-large switching capacity and supports 576 x 100 GE, 576 x 40 GE, 2,304 x 25 GE, or 2,304 x 10 GE line-speed interfaces. The switch uses a strict front-to-back airflow design and provides industrial-grade reliability as well as comprehensive virtualization capabilities and a variety of data center service features. Especially designed with multiple energy conservation technologies, this core switch helps to greatly reduce equipment power consumption.
