Huawei S3700 Enterprise Switches

The S3700 series enterprise switches (S3700s) are next-generation energy-saving Layer 3 switches. The S3700 utilizes cutting-edge hardware and Huawei Versatile Routing Platform (VRP) software to provide high-performance access and aggregation to an enterprise campus network. The S3700 is easy to install and maintain. With its flexible VLAN deployment, PoE capabilities, comprehensive routing functions, and capability to migrate to an IPv6 network, the S3700 helps enterprise customers build next-generation IT networks. In addition, the S3700 uses advanced reliability technologies such as stacking, VRRP, and RRPP, enhancing network reliability and diversity.

The S3700 is a box device that is 1U high. It is available in a standard version (SI), an enhanced version (EI). The SI version provides Layer 2 functions and basic Layer 3 functions. The EI version supports complex routing protocols and provides more functions than the SI version offers.
