Huawei CloudEngine 6800 series (CE6800 for short) switches are next-generation 10G Ethernet switches designed for data centers and high-end campus networks. The switches provide high-performance, high-density 10GE ports and low latency. The CE6800 hardware has an advanced architectural design with 40GE uplink ports and the industry’s highest density of 10GE access ports. Using the Huawei VRP8 software platform, CE6800 switches provide extensive data center service features and high stacking capability. In addition, the air flow direction through ventilation channels (front-to-rear or rear-to-front) can be changed. CE6800 switches can work with CE12800 switches to build an elastic, virtualized and high-quality fabric, meeting the requirements of cloud-computing data centers.

  • Industry-leading 1U TOR Switch: 1.28Tbps switching capacity and up to a maximum 64*10GE ports
  • Industry-first 16-member stack system: this provides more than 768*10GE access ports to support high-density server access in a data center
  • Supports Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), which allows the storage service, data service and computing service to be transmitted on one network, reducing costs of network construction and maintenance
  • Supports IETF TRILL protocol

Deployment Scenarios

Application in a Data Center

On a typical data center network, CE12800 switches work as core switches and CE6800/CE5800 switches work as TOR switches. CE6800/CE5800 switches connect to CE12800 switches through 40GE/10GE ports. The CE12800 and CE6800/CE5800 switches use the TRILL protocol to build a non-blocking Layer 2 network, which allows large-scale VM migrations and flexible service deployments.

Note: The TRILL protocol can also be used on campus networks to support flexible service deployments in different service areas.

Huawei CE6800 Deployment Scenario

Application on a Campus Network

CE6800 switches can be used as aggregation or core switches on a campus network. Its high-density line-speed 10GE ports and high stacking capability can meet the ever-increasing demand for network bandwidth. CE6800 switches are cost-effective campus network switches, thanks to their extensive service features and innovative energy-saving technologies.

On a typical campus network, two CE12800 switches are virtualized into a logical core switch using CSS technology. Multiple CE6800 switches at the aggregation layer form a logical switch using iStack technology. CSS and iStack improve network reliability and simplify network management. At the access layer, CE5800 switches are stacked using iStack technology to provide high-densities of line-speed ports.

Note: The iStack technology is also widely used in data centers to facilitate network management.
