Huawei‘s next-generation multigigabit S6720-SI switch fills the gap for 2.5G/5G switches in the Chinese market. Huawei S6720-SI has the industry's most abundant interfaces, providing GE/2.5G/5G/10G multigigabit rates that meet the high-bandwidth demand of 802.11ac high-speed wireless access points (APs). The switch enables enterprises to quickly double network performance using existing cables without extra investment. In addition, the S6720-SI supports PoE++ technology, featuring a best-in-class power supply distance of up to 200 m, allowing for interconnection between various terminals and APs in IoT scenarios. The S6720-SI is ideal in scenarios such as access for high-speed wireless devices, and campus network access or aggregation, meeting the current network requirements and protecting customer investment.

Huawei also delivers the cost-effective multigigabit switch S5720-28X-PWH-LI. It supports flexible combination of GE and 2.5G interfaces, meeting bandwidth upgrade requirements of different types of customers.

"The rapid development of wireless standards is posing greater challenges for traditional GE switches. Wireless devices are calling for a higher rate, making the upgrade of switches inevitable. In the future, 2.5G- and 5G-compliant Ethernet switches will gradually lead the market. We believe that the commercial use of the Huawei multigigabit switch S6720-SI will push forward the development of 2.5G and 5G Ethernet in the enterprise network market in China. The S6720-SI will help our customers to face the challenges posed by the 802.11ac standard on the wired side", said Yang Jiayuan, Director of Switch Product of Huawei Switch & Enterprise Gateway Product Line.

Huawei's next-generation multigigabit switch S6720-SI will showcase at the upcoming 2nd HUAWEI CONNECT congress from September 5 to 7. Technical experts will be there to explain the product capabilities and service application. You are welcome to join the congress and experience the All-Cloud Network exhibition area.
