CloudEngine 16800 Series Data Center Switches

Built for the intelligent era, Huawei CloudEngine 16800 series switches are powered by an innovative iLossless algorithm that learns and trains network-wide traffic in real-time, eliminating packet loss and maximizing throughput.

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.
