Huawei CloudEngine 12800 series switches are high-performance core switches designed for data centers and high-end campus networks. Providing stable, reliable, secure, and fast L2 and L3 switching services, the switches help enterprises build elastic, virtual, agile, and high-quality networks.
CloudEngine 12800 boasts an ultra-large switching capacity of up to 178 Tbit/s (scalable to 1032 Tbit/s) and supports 576 x 100 GE, 576 x 40 GE, 2304 x 25 GE, or 2304 x 10 GE line-speed interfaces. Coupled with industrial-grade reliability, comprehensive virtualization capabilities, and a variety of data center service features, the switches meet the diverse requirements of data center networks of tomorrow, today. And thanks to multiple energy conservation technologies and a strict front-to-back airflow design, CloudEngine 12800 can do more all while consuming less power.
Google Remote Procedure Call (gRPC)-based telemetry helps detect network-wide paths and monitors network health in real-time.
A single switch can be virtualized into up to 16 logical switches. Border Gateway Protocol Ethernet Virtual Private Network (BGP EVPN) supports resource sharing among data centers.
A patented, strict front-to-rear airflow design isolates line card and switch fabric unit airflows, greatly improving heat dissipation efficiency.
