Huawei has announced the launch of multiple enterprise products at CeBIT 2012, including S9700 series high-end switches (3 models), S5700-LI series mid-range switches (8 models), AR200/150 series enterprise access routers (7 models), WLAN products (7 models of ACs and APs), Open Service Platform (OSP) forum and Tecal V2 servers (6 models) that are supported by Intel Xeon E5 processors.
The company is taking a customer-centric approach to build products for the global ICT market.
“Customer-centric innovation is at the core of everything we do at Huawei Enterprise,” said David He, President of Marketing, Huawei Enterprise. “When it comes to designing hardware solutions, we approach innovation from the viewpoint of our customers, examining what their specific needs are in terms of features and operability. Our new WLAN products, switches, routers and servers embody this focus on the customer and we are confident that our enhanced product portfolio will set new industry standards.”
The S9700/S5700-LI series switches supplement Huawei's current campus network product family. Among these new products, the S9700 provides a 320 Gbps per slot switching capacity and the highest 10GE/40GE port density in the industry to cope with the emerging high-definition video services and fast-developing "10G cloud campus". In addition, the S5700-LI follows an energy-conservation design principle, adopting an innovative port sleeping, hibernate and awakening technology to reduce the total power consumption by over 40%.
Huawei eSight enterprise network management software aims to help enterprises manage and maintain their network devices on a unified basis and improve network service quality. The 7 models of AR200/150 enterprise access routers offer various industry-leading wireless network solutions for customers to choose from. The AR G3 routers, based on industry-leading third generation architecture, are supported by multi-core CPUs and non-blocking switching network and integrate voice, data, and security services on one device. This all-in-one design extends cloud-based services to enterprise branch networks, while reducing customer's investment by 30%. In addition, the AR G3 routers are based on the Open Service Platform (OSP), allowing partners and end customers to customize based on their needs and requirements.
The WLAN products Huawei has launched are claimed to be the only WLAN devices that provide fine-grained QoS control based on user groups. This mechanism provides differentiated services for each WiFi user. Enterprises and WiFi service providers can use flexible QoS policies to guarantee QoS for high-priority users.
Huawei’s new Tecal V2 servers include rack mount server RH2288 V2, high-performance blade server BH622 V2 (for E6000), XH620 V2 and XH621 V2 nodes (for high-density datacenter server X6000), DH620 V2 and DH621 V2 nodes (for green and power efficient cabinet server X8000), all of which focus on applications for data centers and enterprises. These servers use the Intel Xeon E5 CPUs and are touted to bring better performance, larger storage capacity and better virtualization usage.
