Features and benefits

S5720I-SI Series common features

    Suitable for extreme outdoor environments

    • S5720I-SI supports a broad operating temperature range so the switch can be working in the outdoor cabinet in the very cold and very hot environments.
    • Built-in surge protection to best suit harsh outdoor environments.

    Intelligent video surveillance features

    • S5720I-10X-PWH-SI-AC supports Smart Fault Diagnosis (SFD) of the downstream connected IP Cameras (IPCs). Specifically, the switch works with Huawei’s network management system — eSight — to implement fast fault diagnosis based on the device management status, port status, and alarms of the IPC-residing network path, and quickly demarcate the IPC disconnection fault type (for example, an IPC fault, network device fault, power failure, or optical fiber link fault). This capability improves O&M efficiency, reduces O&M costs, and increases the IPC connectivity rate.
    • S5720I-10X-PWH-SI-AC supports Enhanced Media Delivery Index (eMDI) video quality demarcation. To be specific, this switch works with Huawei eSight to analyze video service quality and quickly demarcate video quality issues, such as image artifacts and frame freezing.

    POE++ large power supply

    • S5720I-SI has PoE++ model, which supports multiple GE POE++ Ethernet electrical ports. The POE++ model provides up to 60W of power supply per port.
    • S5720I-SI PoE++ model supports long-distance PoE++,works with Huawei M2220-I, M2221-FL, M2221-VL, M2260-I, and M2220-I (8 mm to 32 mm) series of cameras to provide 200-meter long-distance power supply through 100 Mbit/s links, 250 meters through 10 Mbit/s links.
    • S5720I-12X-PWH-SI-DC supports fast PoE technology to ensure fast power supply. S5720I-12X-PWH-SI-DC can supply power to PDs within 10 seconds after they are powered on. This is different from common switches that generally take 1 to 3 minutes to start to supply power to PDs. Huawei’s fast PoE capability greatly shortens the service interruption time caused by power supply interruption, and enables the switch and PD to start almost at the same time. That is, after the switch is fully started, PDs can immediately get powered and function properly.
    • Huawei switches support the perpetual PoE technology to deliver uninterrupted PoE power supply. A Huawei switch does not stop supplying power to PDs even when a switch card is reset by running the reboot command. This capability ensures that PDs are not powered off during the switch reboot, eliminating the fault-triggered interruption accordingly. Huawei modular switches currently do not support perpetual PoE.

    Easy O&M

    • The S5720I-SI supports Super Virtual Fabric (SVF), which virtualizes the “Core/aggregation + Access switch + AP” structure into a logical device. The S5720I-SI provides the simplest network management solution in the industry to simplify device management. It allows plug-and-play access switches and APs. In addition, the S5720I-SI supports service configuration templates. The templates are configured on core devices and automatically delivered to access devices, enabling centralized control, simplified service configuration, and flexible configuration modification. The S5720I-SI functions as a client in an SVF system.
    • The S5720I-SI supports zero-touch deployment, replacement of faulty devices without additional configuration, USB-based deployment, batch configuration, and batch remote upgrade. The capabilities facilitate device deployment, upgrade, service provisioning, and other management and maintenance operations, and also greatly reduce O&M costs. The S5720I-SI can be managed using SNMP v1/v2c/v3, CLI, web-based network management system, or SSH v2.0. Additionally, it supports RMON, multiple log hosts, port traffic statistics collection, and network quality analysis, which facilitate network optimization and reconstruction.

    Powerful service processing capability and multiple security control mechanisms

    • The S5720I-SI supports many Layer 2/Layer 3 multicast protocols such as PIM SM, PIM DM, PIM SSM, MLD, and IGMP snooping, to support multi-terminal high-definition video surveillance and videoconferencing services.
    • The S5720I-SI supports multiple Layer 3 features including OSPF, IS-IS, BGP, and VRRP, meeting enterprises’ requirements on access and aggregation service transmission, and enabling a variety of voice, video, and data applications.
    • The S5720I-SI supports MAC address authentication, 802.1x authentication, and Portal authentication, and implements dynamic delivery of policies (VLAN, QoS, and ACL) to users.
    • The S5720I-SI provides a series of mechanisms to defend against DoS and user-targeted attacks. DoS attacks are targeted at switches and include SYN flood, Land, Smurf, and ICMP flood attacks. User-targeted attacks include bogus DHCP server attacks, IP/MAC address spoofing, DHCP request flood, and change of the DHCP CHADDR value.
    • The S5720I-SI sets up and maintains a DHCP snooping binding table, and discards the packets that do not match the table entries. You can specify DHCP snooping trusted and untrusted ports to ensure that users connect only to the authorized DHCP server.
    • The S5720I-SI supports strict ARP learning, which protects a network against ARP spoofing attacks to ensure normal network access.

    Multiple reliability mechanisms

    • In addition to traditional STP, RSTP, and MSTP, the S5720I-SI supports Huawei-developed Smart Ethernet Protection (SEP) technology and the latest Ethernet Ring Protection Switching (ERPS) standard. SEP is a ring protection protocol specific to the Ethernet link layer, and applies to various ring network topologies, such as open ring topology, closed ring topology, and cascading ring topology. This protocol is reliable, easy to maintain, and implements fast protection switching within 50 milliseconds. ERPS is defined in ITU-T G.8032. It implements millisecond-level protection switching based on traditional Ethernet MAC and bridging functions.
    • The S5720I-SI supports Smart Link. One S5720I-SI switch can connect to multiple aggregation switches through multiple links, implementing backup of uplinks and significantly improving reliability of access devices.
    • The S5720I-SI supports Ethernet OAM (IEEE 802.3ah/802.1ag) to detect link faults quickly.

    Mature IPv6 technologies

    • The S5720I-SI uses the mature, stable VRP platform and supports IPv4/IPv6 dual stack, IPv6 RIPng, and IPv6 over IPv4 tunnels (including manual, 6-to-4, and ISATAP tunnels). With these IPv6 features, the S5720I-SI can be deployed on a pure IPv4 network, a pure IPv6 network, or a shared IPv4/IPv6 network, helping achieve IPv4-to-IPv6 transition.
