CloudEngine 8800 Series Data Center Switches

CE8800 series switches (CE8800 for short) are next-generation Ethernet switches with flexible cards designed for data center networks and high-end campus networks, providing high performance, high interface density, and low latency.

CE8800 series switches provide high-density 10 GE, 25 GE, 40 GE, and 100 GE ports, and support an extensive range of data center features and high-performance stacking technologies, helping enterprises and carriers build cloud-oriented data center networks. CE8800 series switches can serve as core or aggregation switches in both data center networks and campus networks.

CE8800 series switches can interwork with CE12800, CE7800, CE6800, or CE5800 series switches to build a scalable, simplified, open, and secure cloud data center network.
