CloudEngine S5731-S Series Multi-GE Switches

CloudEngine S5731-S Series Multi-GE Switches

The CloudEngine S5731-S series multi-GE switches are next-generation gigabit access switches that offer multi-GE (GE/2.5GE/10GE) electrical downlink ports and 10GE/40GE optical uplink ports.

Built on Huawei's unified Versatile Routing Platform (VRP), CloudEngine S5731-S switches provide enhanced Layer 3 features, support MPLS, support simplified Operations & Maintenance (O&M), Intelligent Stack (iStack) technology — allowing multiple stacking-capable switches to function as a single logical switch — flexible Ethernet networking, and mature Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) features.

The series is widely used in a range of scenarios, including enterprise campus access and aggregation, as well as data center access.

PoE Power Supply

Super Power Supply

Supports 90 W PoE++ power supply for Wi-Fi 6 APs, remote modules, and HD cameras.

Simplified Network

Automated Network Services

Unleash the power of Virtual Extensible Local Area Network (VXLAN)-based virtualization to automate the deployment of virtual networks, transforming a single-purpose network into a multi-purpose one and reducing Operating Expenditure (OPEX) by up to 80%.

Continuous Security

Integrated Network Security

Secure operations with built-in security probes, which precisely identify potentially malicious traffic and collaborate with the Huawei HiSec Insight Security Situation Awareness System to achieve network-wide collaborative security protection.
