S2720-EI Series Switches

Huawei S2720-EI switches are well suited for enterprise campus access scenarios, featuring both 100M-to-the-desktop and GE uplink transmission. They provide a mix of 100M and 1000M ports and offer rich Layer 3 routing protocols, high performance, and powerful service processing. The switches can also work as clients in a Super Virtual Fabric (SVF) system.

Most Diverse CPE Types

Diverse Port Types

A mix of 100M and 1000M ports with diverse access ports.

Ultra-High Bandwidth


Intelligent Stack (iStack) improves device reliability and scalability, while significantly reducing system Operations and Maintenance (O&M) costs. This allows for unified configuration and management of the entire stack system.

Superior Performance

High Performance

Support for Routing Information Protocol (RIP) and Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), offering leading routing performance in the 100M switch field.
