S5720-HI Series Agile Fixed Switches

Fully programmable, energy-efficient Gbit/s access switches for building high-density, agile Ethernet networks.

Innovative virtualization technology and specialized electronics greatly simplify management of converged, wired and wireless networks, provide more granular quality monitoring and error recovery, and enable rapid provisioning of new services and network features.

Available in 24-port and 48-port models with 10 GE uplink ports for enabling comprehensive services processing capabilities.

Configure high-density, low-latency Gbit/s access to server-based applications with Huawei’s agile, SDN-ready S5720-HI Enterprise Campus Switches

  • Native Access Controllers (ACs) provide efficient, seamless support of converged, wired and wireless networks
  • Super Virtual Fabric (SVF) parent that virtualizes wired switches and wireless APs into a single device, greatly simplifying network management
  • Programmable Ethernet Network Processor (ENP) chip lets administrators provision new services and network features quickly, without replacing hardware
  • Innovative Packet Conservation Algorithm for Internet (iPCA) technology enhances automatic monitoring and recovery from failures, for a more resilient and responsive user experience
