S7700 Series Smart Routing Switches

Multiple-service routing and 10 GE to 100 GE switching capabilities, scalable for large campus networks; card-upgradable for Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and to provide onboard radio frequency Access Controllers (AC) for wireless communications.

Modular design, unified user management, and comprehensive security features make the S7700 Switch ideal for both small and large-scale networks. Super Virtual Fabric (SVF 2.0) design and CSS clustering provide scalability and ample bandwidth for video and surveillance applications.

Choose from 3 models to build a smarter, more resilient network.

Build a smarter network with Huawei S7700 Routing Switches, upgradable for migration to Software-Defined Networking and fully converged networks

  • Support up to 480 x 10 GE ports per switch, forwarding rates up to 2,880 Mpps, scalable with SVF 2.0 and CSS technologies to maximum switching capacity up to 3.84 Tbit/s in a fully configured switch
  • Huawei’s Packet Conservation Algorithm for Internet (iPCA) on X1E cards uses marks added to service packets to actively monitor network quality, detecting temporary interruptions and faulty ports within seconds
  • Available AC boards provide native wireless support, fully integrated with the NMS for managing up to 2K APs and 32K users
  • Unified user management supports 802.1X, MAC, and Portal authentication in a simple visual user interface
  • SVF 2.0 simplifies management by virtualizing the network — fixed switches into Line Processing Units (LPU) and APs into ports
