Huawei S12700 series agile core switches are designed for next-generation campus networks. The S12700 series uses a fully programmable architecture to meet fast-changing service needs, and allow new services to be flexibly and quickly provisioned in six months.
The S12700 series provides high-performance Layer 2/Layer3 switching services, supports millions of hardware entries, and can meet campus network evolution over the next 10 years.
The S12700 series has built-in large-capacity WLAN AC functionalities, achieving wired and wireless convergence and eliminating the capacity bottleneck of ACs.
Uses a fully programmable architecture, enabling new services to be flexibly and quickly provisioned within six months.
Supports up to 1M MAC entries, 3M FIB entries, and 1M NetStream entries, and provides 8x100GE and 16x40GE high-density cards, fully adapting to terminal and service increase in MAN, higher education, and large enterprise scenarios.
Supports native AC and can manage up to 10K APs. The wireless forwarding performance of a single device reaches 4 Tbit/s. Super Virtual Fabric (SVF) virtualizes core/aggregation plus access switches and wireless APs into a single device, greatly simplifying network management.
