“Cloud Data Center”
Huawei unveiled the industry’s first data center switch built for the Artificial Intelligence (AI) era –– CloudEngine 16800. It supports smooth interface evolution of 10 GE -> 40 GE -> 100 GE -> 400 GE. It provides the industry’s highest density 48-port 400 GE line card in a slot and up to 768 x 400 GE ports, which greatly reduces the number of core devices, simplifies the network, and improves management efficiency.
The CloudEngine 16800 is the industry’s first data center switch built for the AI era. It enhances the intelligence level of devices deployed at the network edge, and enables the switch to achieve local inference and real-time decision-making. Using telemetry, the data is first preprocessed locally and then sent to the intelligent O&M platform for secondary processing, based on a fault-case library. This distributed architecture enables forwarding devices to work with the intelligent O&M platform to implement intelligent network O&M.
The CloudEngine 16800 is the industry’s first switch with embedded high-performance AI chip, and uses the innovative iLossless algorithm. It will redefine Data Center (DC) switches in the AI era, reach an AI computing power of 100% in DCs that are called AI incubators, and lead them into the AI era.
