Huawei S6700 Series 10G Switches

The S7700 series enterprise switches (S7700s) are high-end smart routing switches, which can function either as an aggregation or core node on a campus network to provide integrated wireless access or as an aggregation node in a data center.Based on carrier-class design, each S7700 switch supports 480x 10GE ports and can deliver 99.999% reliability in any enterprise environment. This high density of 10GE ports and high uptime, along with the ability to integrate voice, video, data and wireless services, helps enterprises build integrated, full-service networks and bring their campus and data centers into the era of the all 10GE core network.

Large capacity and high density 10Gbps access, the S6700 supports up to a maximum of 48 line-speed 10GE ports and can be deployed in a data center to provide 10Gbps access to servers, or function as a core switch on a campus network to provide 10Gbps traffic aggregation. The S6700 Series of switches also provide a wide variety of services, comprehensive security policies, and various QoS features to help customers build scalable, manageable, reliable, and secure data centers

Deployment Scenarios

Data Centers

The S6700 can be used in Huawei's sustainable data center solution, which has four major highlights: evolution, availability, pooling, and visualization.

As shown in the following figure, the S9700 Terabit routing switches function as core switches in a data center and use firewall and load balancer boards to ensure security and perform load balancing. The S6700s function as access switches and provide high-density 10GE ports to connect to 10G servers.

Campus Networks

The S6700 can function as a core switch on a campus network and provide high-density line-speed 10GE ports, rich service features, and comprehensive security mechanisms. This makes the S6700 a cost-effective option
