CloudEngine S5736-S Series All-Optical

CloudEngine S5736-S Series All-Optical Switches

CloudEngine S5736-S Series Switches are next generation standard all-optical GE switches, with 48 downlink optical ports and four 10 GE uplink ports.

Based on Huawei's Versatile Routing Platform (VRP), CloudEngine S5736-S supports enhanced Layer 3 features, simplified Operations and Maintenance (O&M), flexible Ethernet networking, and mature Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) features. The series can be used as access or aggregation switches on campus networks or as access switches on Metropolitan Area Networks (MANs) or data center networks.

Flexible Installation

Flexible Deployment

With a depth of only 220 mm, the switches are easily mounted on desktops, walls, or in racks, with a prepositive power supply that makes them easy to maintain and manage.

Flexible Traffic Bearing

Access ports can be smoothly and flexibly upgraded from GE to 10 GE through Right To Use (RTU) licenses, protecting customer investment.

Intelligent Network O&M

Real-time device data collection through telemetry and collaboration with Huawei's campus network analyzer — CampusInsight — help to rapidly detect network problems before they affect the user experience.
