CloudEngine S5731-H Series Switches

CloudEngine S5731-H series switches are brand-new enhanced gigabit access switches that provide all-GE electrical downlink ports, fixed 10GE uplink ports, and one extended slot.

CloudEngine S5731-H delivers gigabit connectivity at the aggregation or access layer in large and midsize campuses, at the core layer in branches and small campuses, and at the access layer in data centers. Integrating native WLAN AC capabilities to support up to 1024 WLAN APs, CloudEngine S5731-H enables you to converge your wired and wireless networks for simplified operations. It also offers free mobility to deliver consistent user experience and VXLAN-based virtualization to create a multi-purpose network. With built-in security probes, CloudEngine S5731-H supports abnormal traffic detection, Encrypted Communications Analytics (ECA), and network-wide threat deception.

Large Buffers

Ultra Large Port Buffer, Ensuring Non-Blocking Data Forwarding

Deliver 6-fold more port buffer than the industry and provide gigabit bandwidth for non-blocking data forwarding, ideal for low-latency services in the Wi-Fi 6 era, such as voice, video, and VR services.

Intelligent O&M, Achieving Fault Locating in Minutes

Collect device data in real time through Telemetry and collaborate with the campus network analyzer CampusInsight to quickly detect network problems that affect user experience, accurately assuring user experiences.

Business Protection

Industry-Unique Security Deception Technology, Identifying Attacks in Advance

Use network spoofing and service emulation techniques to identify attack sources as early as when they initiate intranet scanning, and block the attack sources within minutes through security association.
