CloudEngine 16800 Series Data Center Switches

CloudEngine 16800 Series Data Center Switches

Huawei CloudEngine 16800 is a data center switch developed for the intelligence era. It applies to integrated big data centers and cross-region computing power scheduling scenarios such as "East-to-West Computing Resource Transfer". In 2023, Huawei comprehensively upgrades the CloudEngine 16800 series switches and launches the CE16800-X — industry's first core switch designed for the diversified computing era. This switch comes with high-density 400GE and intelligent scheduling algorithms, ideal for accelerating the unleash of computing power. In addition, Huawei's hyper-converged Ethernet technology enables unified bearer of general-purpose computing, storage, and supercomputing networks, minimizing the CTO.

Mass Storage

Large Capacity

173/1548 Tbit/s switching capacity, supporting smooth evolution to 400 GE in anticipation of future traffic demand.

Intelligence on Demand

Intelligent Engine

A unique iLossless algorithm learns and trains network-wide traffic in real time, implementing network adaptation and self-optimization. Zero packet loss boosts throughput to 100%.

Intelligent O&M

An intelligent Operations and Maintenance (O&M) platform, supported by telemetry-based data collection in milliseconds, enables fault location within 3 minutes and prediction of 90% of risks.
