“The launch of Huawei’s Agile Switch S12700 brings a host of business benefits, allowing decisions not only to be made automatically and quickly, but also frees up network resources so that decision makers are able to focus on their core business.”

Providing native wireless access controller, it uses Huawei’s Ethernet Network Processor, which offers 1M MAC address entries and 3M FIB entries.

The unveiling of Huawei’s Agile S12700 switch series in the Middle East comes at a time where the industry is witnessing the convergence of data centres, wireless and wide area network technology.”
