CloudEngine S16700 Series Switches

CloudEngine S16700 series switches are flagship core switches with record-high performance designed for high-quality 10 Gbps campus networks. This series stands out for ultra-fast forwarding capability of 14.4 Tbit/s per slot, unmatched data switching, and massive terminal access. CloudEngine S16700 is the first to apply Multichassis Link Aggregation Group (M-LAG) technology on campus networks, achieving 99.9999% high reliability. Other compelling features include Virtual Extensible Local Area Network (VXLAN), free mobility, Quality of Service (QoS), Packet Conservation Algorithm for Internet (iPCA), one-click service deployment, and minute-level fault locating. With these traits, CloudEngine S16700 is an ideal choice for global customers to usher in the 400 Gbit/s era of campus networks.
