S12700 Series Huawei S12700 series agile switches are designed for next-generation campus networks. The S12700 series allows fast, flexible function customization and supports a smooth evolution to Software-Defined Networking (SDN). The S12700 series provides a native Wireless Access Controller (AC) to help build a wired and wireless converged network. Its Unified User Management capabilities deliver unified user and service management, and Huawei’s Packet Conservation Algorithm for Internet (iPCA) supports hop-by-hop monitoring of any service flows, helping manage services in a more refined way. The S12700 series runs the Huawei Versatile Routing Platform (VRP), which provides high-performance L2/L3 switching services and rich network services, such as Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) VPN, hardware IPv6, desktop cloud, and video conferencing. In addition, the S12700 series offers a variety of reliability technologies, including non-stop forwarding, Cluster Switch System Generation2 (CSS2), a switch fabric hardware clustering system that allows 1+N backup of Main Processing Units (MPUs), hardware Eth-OAM/BFD, and ring network protection. These technologies help improve productivity and maximize network operation time, reducing Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
The S12700 series is available in four models: S12704, S12708, S12710, and S12712.

Product characteristics

Make your network agile and service-oriented

  • The S12700 uses a fully-programmable architecture that adapts to the changing forwarding processes driven by protocol evolution and technology advances. It enables fast and flexible provisioning of new services simply by upgrading software, without having to replace hardware, thereby protecting customers’ investment. In contrast, traditional ASIC chips use a fixed forwarding architecture and follow a fixed forwarding process; as a result, new services cannot be provisioned until new hardware is developed to support the services, which may take 1 to 3 years.

Deliver abundant services agilely

  • The S12700 series' native AC capabilities allow enterprises to build a wireless network without additional AC hardware. Each S12700 switch can manage up to 10K APs and 65,536 users. It is a core switch that provides up to 4 Tbit/s AC capabilities, avoiding the performance bottleneck on independent AC devices. The native AC capabilities help organizations better cope with challenges in the high-speed wireless era.
  • The S12700 series’ unified user management function authenticates both wired and wireless users, ensuring a consistent user experience no matter whether they are connected to the network through wired or wireless access devices. The unified user management function supports various authentication methods, including 802.1x, MAC address, and Portal authentication, and is capable of managing users based on user groups, domains, and time ranges. These functions control user and service management and enable the transformation from device-centered management to user-centered management.
  • The S12700 series’ Service Chain function can virtualize value-added service capabilities, such as next-generation firewall. Then these capabilities can be used by campus network entities (such as switches, routers, AC, AP, and terminals), regardless of their physical locations. Service Chain provides a more flexible value-added service deployment solution, which reduces equipment investment and maintenance costs.
  • The S12700 series supports IEEE 1588v2 and Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE), meeting the high-precision synchronization requirements of network systems.

Provide agile fine granular management

  • Open Intelligent Diagnosis System (OIDS) integrates the device health monitoring and fault diagnosis functions — that are typically deployed on a Network Management System (NMS) — into the switch software to implement intelligent diagnosis on a single switch. After OIDS is deployed on a switch, the switch periodically collects and records the running information and automatically determines whether a fault occurs. If a fault occurs, the switch automatically locates the fault or helps locate the fault. All these merits increase fault locating efficiency of O&M staff while improving device maintainability.
  • Packet Conservation Algorithm for Internet (iPCA) changes the traditional method that uses simulated traffic for fault location. iPCA technology monitors network quality for any service flow at any network node, at any time, and without extra costs. It can detect temporary service interruptions within one second and can identify faulty ports accurately. This cutting-edge fault detection technology turns “extensive management” into “finely granular management.”
  • Super Virtual Fabric 2.0 (SVF 2.0) technology can not only virtualize fixed-configuration switches into S12700 switch line cards but also virtualize APs as switch ports. With this virtualization technology, a physical network with core/aggregation switches, access switches, and APs can be virtualized into a “super switch”, greatly simplifying management.
  • The S12700 series manages access switches in a similar way to how an AC manages APs, saving the trouble of laborious configuration on access switches. It manages access switches and APs uniformly through CAPWAP tunnels, allowing access switches and APs to connect to the network with zero configuration.

Industry-leading line cards

  • The S12700 series supports several million hardware entries, leaving traditional switches far behind. The S12700 series provides 1M MAC address entries and 3M Forwarding Information Base (FIB) entries, meeting requirements of route-intensive scenarios, such as the Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) for a television broadcasting or education network. Providing 1M NetStream entries enables fine granular traffic statistics for college campus networks and large-scale enterprise campus networks.
  • The S12700 series provides large buffer on line card to prevent packet loss upon traffic bursts, delivering high-quality video services.
  • The S12700 series supports high-density cards, such as 48 x 10 GE, 16 x 40 GE, and 8 x 100 GE cards. Each S12700 chassis can provide a maximum of 576 x 10 GE ports, 192 x 40G ports, and 96 x 100 GE ports. This large port capacity fully meets the requirements of bandwidth-consuming applications, such as multimedia video conferencing, protecting customer investments.

End-to-end reliability

Device-Level Reliability: CSS2 Switch Fabric Hardware Clustering Technology
Based on back-to-back clustering technology, widely used on high-end core routers, the S12700 series employs second-generation switching fabric hardware clustering technology, CSS2, an enhancement to CSS switching fabric clustering technology.
CSS2 technology connects cluster member switches through switch fabric unit hardware channels; therefore, cluster control and data packets need only be forwarded once by the switch fabric units and do not go through service cards. Compared with traditional service port clustering technologies, CSS2 minimizes the impact of software failures, reduces service interruption risks caused by service cards, and also significantly shortens transmission latency.
CSS2 supports 1+N backup of MPUs. This means a cluster can run stably as long as one MPU of any chassis in the cluster is working normally. In a cluster connected by service ports, each chassis must have at least one MPU working normally; therefore, CSS2 is more reliable than traditional service port clustering technologies.
Network-Level Reliability: End-to-End Hardware Protection Switching
The S12700 uses a series of link detection and protection switching technologies, such as hardware Eth-OAM, BFD, G.8032, and Smart Ethernet Protection (SEP), to realize end-to-end protection switching. These technologies help build a campus network that responds quickly to topology changes and provides the most reliable services.
The S12700 supports High-speed Self Recovery (HSR) technology. The S12700 implements end-to-end IP MPLS transmission network protection switchover within 50 ms, improving network reliability.

Comprehensive security measures

  • The S12700 supports MAC security (MACSec) that enables hop-by-hop secure data transmission. Therefore, the S12700 can be applied to scenarios that pose high requirements on data confidentiality, such as government and finance sectors.
  • NGFW is a next-generation firewall card that can be installed on an S12700. In addition to the traditional defense functions such as firewall, identity authentication, and Anti-DDoS, the NGFW supports IPS, anti-spam, web security, and application control functions.
  • The S12700 provides innovative next-generation environment awareness and access control. It identifies the application-layer attacks and protects network-layer applications based on application type, content, time, user, threaten, and location.
  • The dedicated software and hardware platforms provide an Intelligent Aware Engine (IAE) to perceive application information when all security functions are enabled. The built-in hardware accelerator for content detection improves application-layer protection efficiency and ensures the 10G+ performance when all security functions are enabled.

VXLAN

  • VXLAN is used to construct a Unified Virtual Fabric (UVF). As such, multiple service networks or tenant networks can be deployed on the same physical network, and service and tenant networks are isolated from each other. This capability truly achieves ‘one network for multiple purposes’. The resulting benefits include enabling data transmission of different services or customers, reducing the network construction costs, and improving network resource utilization. The S12700 series switches are VXLAN-capable and allow centralized and distributed VXLAN gateway deployment modes. These switches also support the BGP EVPN protocol for dynamically establishing VXLAN tunnels and can be configured using NETCONF/YANG.

OPS

  • Open Programmability System (OPS) is an open programmable system based on the Python language. IT administrators can program the O&M functions of a switch through Python scripts to quickly innovate functions and implement intelligent O&M.

Big data security collaboration

  • Agile switches use NetStream to collect campus network data and then report such data to the Huawei Cybersecurity Intelligence System (CIS). The purposes of doing so are to detect network security threats, display the security posture across the entire network, and enable automated or manual response to security threats. The CIS delivers the security policies to the Agile Controller. The Agile Controller then delivers such policies to agile switches that will handle security events accordingly. All these ensure campus network security.

Intelligent diagnosis

  • Open Intelligent Diagnosis System (OIDS) integrates the device health monitoring and fault diagnosis functions – that are typically deployed on a Network Management System (NMS) – into the switch software to implement intelligent diagnosis on a single switch. After OIDS is deployed on a switch, the switch periodically collects and records the running information and automatically determines whether a fault occurs. If a fault occurs, the switch automatically locates the fault or helps locate the fault. All these merits increase fault locating efficiency of O&M staff while improving device maintainability.

Intelligent O&M

  • The S12700 provides telemetry technology to collect device data in real time and send the data to Huawei campus network analyzer CampusInsight. The CampusInsight analyzes network data based on the intelligent fault identification algorithm, accurately displays the real-time network status, effectively demarcates and locates faults in a timely manner, and identifies network problems that affect user experience, accurately guaranteeing user experience.
  • The S12700 supports a variety of intelligent O&M features for audio and video services, including the enhanced Media Delivery Index (eMDI). With this eDMI function, the S12700 can function as a monitored node to periodically conduct statistics and report audio and video service indicators to the CampusInsight platform. In this way, the CampusInsight platform can quickly demarcate audio and video service quality faults based on the results of multiple monitored nodes.

Networking and applications

In an enterprise campus network

  • S12700 series switches are deployed on the core layer of an enterprise campus network. Native ACs provided by the S12700 enable customers to build wireless networks without additional AC hardware, reducing network construction costs. It is a core switch that provides 4 Tbit/s AC capabilities, avoiding the performance bottleneck on independent ACs. The native AC capabilities help customers migrate their wireless networks to 802.11ac or 802.11ax. The S12700 series realizes wired and wireless convergence and delivers consistent experience to wired and wireless users through uniform device, user, and service management.

In a college campus network

  • S12700 series switches are deployed on the core layer of a college campus network. The unified user management function on the S12700 reduces network construction costs by removing the need to purchase new BRAS hardware. Each S12700 switch supports 65,536 users, allowing a large number of concurrent access users. Its H-QoS feature implements fine granular user and service management. The S12700 series realizes wired and wireless convergence and delivers consistent experience to wired and wireless users through uniform device, user, and service management.

In a transmission network for video conferencing, desktop cloud, and video surveillance applications

  • The large buffer prevents packet loss upon traffic bursts, delivering high-quality video streams. The S12700 series supports up to 1M MAC address entries and 3M FIB entries, which allow access from a large number of terminals and help evolution to IPv6 and the Internet of Things (IoT). Employing end-to-end hardware reliability technologies and iPCA technology, the S12700 series offers a highly reliable, high-quality, scalable video conferencing and surveillance solution.

On the core/aggregation layer of a MAN

  • S12700 series switches are used as core or aggregation switches on the Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) of a television broadcasting or education network. The 3M FIB entries provided are sufficient for large-scale routing on the MAN. CSS2 switch fabric hardware clustering technology, originating from clustering technology for high-end core routers, delivers carrier-class reliability on the MAN. Additionally, the S12700 series supports comprehensive L2/L3 MPLS VPN features, providing a highly reliable, secure, and scalable metropolitan bearer network solution.

In an enterprise data center

  • S12700 series switches are deployed on the core or aggregation layer of an enterprise data center network. The S12700 series has high-density line cards, such as 48 x 10 GE, 16 x 40 GE, and 8 x 100 GE cards, meeting the requirements for large data throughput on data center core/aggregation nodes. Using CSS2 switch fabric hardware clustering technology, the S12700 series provides up to 1.92 Tbit/s cluster bandwidth and shortens the inter-chassis forwarding latency to 4 μs. This technology helps customers build a high performance, high reliability, and low latency data center network.
