CloudEngine S8700 Series Switches

Huawei CloudEngine S8700 series switches ("CloudEngine S8700") are next-generation modular aggregation/access switches ideal for future-proof cloud campus networks. They are available in three models — CloudEngine S8700-4 with 4 slots/ CloudEngine S8700-6 with 6 slots and CloudEngine S8700-10 with 10 slots — and come with ultra-high densities of GE, 10GE, 25GE, 40GE, and 100GE access ports, helping quickly build a future-proof campus network with simplified architecture.
Built on Huawei's next-generation converged software platform — CloudEngine S8700 offers customers a trusted system and secure data access. All key components of CloudEngine S8700, including the main control boards, power modules, and fan modules, adopt a redundancy design for carrier-grade reliability.
With all these traits, CloudEngine S8700 is an ideal choice of aggregation/access nodes needed to build future-proof cloud campus networks, helping customers achieve their digital transformation goals.
