CloudEngine S5736-S Series Multi-GE Switches

CloudEngine S5736-S Series Switches are standard multi-GE access switches for the Wi-Fi 6 era, featuring 24 downlink ports, four 10 GE SFP+ uplink ports, and one extended slot.

Powered by Huawei's unified Versatile Routing Platform (VRP), the switches offer a range of capabilities, including Intent-Driven Network (IDN) features and flexible Ethernet, as well as enhanced Layer 3 and mature Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) networking. Combined with simplified Operations and Maintenance (O&M) and robust Power over Ethernet (PoE) capabilities, the series is designed to work with Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) Access Points (APs) in campus networks.

CloudEngine S5736-S can be used as an access or aggregation switch on a campus network or as an access switch on a Metropolitan Area Network (MAN).
