CloudEngine 5800 Series Data Center Switches

CloudEngine 5800 series switches are gigabit access switches that provide 40 GE uplink ports and variable airflow capability (front-to-back or back-to-front). They can form a 9-member stack system and provide high-density gigabit access for cloud data center networks, helping enterprises and carriers build cloud-oriented data center networks. These switches are versatile, serving as aggregation or access switches on campus networks.

The CloudEngine 5800 series switches are compatible with CloudEngine 16800 and CloudEngine 12800 series switches, making it easy to build cloud data center networks that are scalable, simplified, open, and secure.
