S5700-SI Series Switches

High-performance hardware tightly integrated with Huawei’s Versatile Routing Platform (VRP) software, in a highly scalable, energy-efficient Gbit/s access or aggregation switch.

Flexible networking options and intelligent iStack technology make the S5700-SI easily scalable, and simple to operate and maintain.

Comprehensive security features defend against DoS and user-targeted cyberattacks; dynamic policy provisioning simplifies user authentication, improving QoS performance.

Choose Huawei S5700 Series Switches to provide Gbit/s access for wired and wireless devices throughout the enterprise network

  • ŸIntelligent iStack technology virtualizes multiple switches into one logical switch, improving device reliability and simplifying configuration and management
  • Flexible networking through STP, RSTP, and MSTP protocols, Smart Link and SEP technology
  • Diversified security mechanisms: MAC address, 802.1x, and portal authentication mechanisms; dynamic provisioning of user access policies including VLAN, QoS, and ACL policies
