S12700 Series Agile Switches

Designed for next generation campus networks, Huawei S12700 Series agile core switches have a fully programmable architecture to best meet fast-changing service needs, allowing new services to be flexibly and quickly provisioned within six months.

The series provides high-performance Layer 2 and Layer 3 switching services, supports millions of hardware entries, and meets campus network evolution needs over the next ten years.

Built-in, large capacity Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) Access Controller (AC) functionalities achieve wired and wireless convergence, eliminating the capacity bottleneck associated with ACs.
