S5720-HI series switches are IDN-ready fixed switches developed by Huawei. The S5720-HI provides native AC capabilities and can manage 1K APs. It provides the free mobility function to ensure consistent user experience, and is VXLAN capable to implement network virtualization. The S5720-HI provides built-in security probes and supports abnormal traffic detection, Encrypted Communication Analytics (ECA), and network-wide threat deception.
The S5720-HI series switches can be used as core devices on enterprise branch networks and small- and medium-sized campus networks. They are also used as aggregation devices on large-sized campus networks. The switches help build highly reliable enterprise campus networks that are easy to expand and manage.
Enables flexible expansion of new functions and allows for smooth evolution.
Enables customers to implement wired and wireless convergence without purchasing additional AC hardware.
Supports Super Virtual Fabric (SVF), which virtualizes the campus network architecture of core/aggregation switches, access switches and APs into a single NE for simplified network O&M. The S5720-HI can work as an SVF parent to manage the entire network.
