S5700-HI Series Switches

Highly scalable gigabit access for terminals in enterprise campus networks; also ideal for resilient server support and aggregation in large-scale data centers. 40 Gbit/s upstream ports configurable to 10 Gbit/s for flexible networking.

Advanced hardware design and Huawei’s Versatile Routing Platform (VRP) software provide resilient, manageable operation; comprehensive onboard security features protect against cyber attacks.

S5700-HI models support Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE), port energy detection, and device hibernation technologies, greatly reducing energy consumption and noise without compromising performance and stability.

Choose Huawei S5700 Series Switches to provide Gbit/s access for wired and wireless devices throughout the enterprise network

  • Smart Link and Rapid Ring Protection Protocol (RRPP) provide load balancing among links, optimizing bandwidth usage
  • NetStream and sFlow support provide dynamic traffic analysis and management, simplifying O&M
  • Multiple fault-detection mechanisms: both hardware- and software-based Bi-directional Forwarding Detection (BFD) and Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM) features
  • Combine multiple S5700-HI switches into a single stack with Huawei’s intelligent iStack technology
