High-density GE Access

  • Each CE5800 switch provides 48*GE line-speed ports, which makes future data center expansion easy.
  • The CE5850 is the first GE access switch to provide 40GE uplink ports. CE5850 switches can work with CE12800 switches to build a high-performance data center network that provides 40GE access. The two 40GE uplink ports on CE5850 back up each other to improve system reliability.
  • The CE5810 has models with 48*GE and 24*GE ports that can be flexibly deployed in racks with different server port densities to meet different cabling requirements in data center equipment rooms.

Highly Reliable, High-performance Stacking

  • The industry's first 16-member stack system
    A stack system of 16 member switches has a maximum of 768*GE access ports that provide high-density server access in a data center.
    Multiple switches in a stack system are virtualized into one logical device, making it possible to build a scalable, easy-to-manage data center network platform.
    A stack system separates the control plane from the data plane. This eliminates the risk of single-point failures and greatly improves system reliability.
  • Long-distance, highly reliable stacking
    CE5800 switches can use either 10GE or 40GE ports as stack ports. A stack system can be established with switches in the same rack or different racks, and even over long distances.
    The 40GE ports of the CE5850 can set up large-capacity stack channels that enable multiple CE5800 switches to constitute a non-blocking stack system.

Vertical Virtualization Simplifies Management

  • The CE5800 supports Super Virtual Fabric (SVF), which can virtualize multiple homogeneous or heterogeneous physical switches into one logical switch to simplify network management and improve reliability.
  • SVF implements vertical extension of heterogeneous switches and virtualizes multiple leaf switches into remote cards of the spine switch, making it easier to install cables in equipment rooms and manage devices. The CE5810 functions as the leaf switch.
  • Huawei's SVF is the first in the industry to implement local forwarding of leaf switches. When horizontal traffic is the mainstream traffic in a data center, SVF improves forwarding efficiency and reduces network delay.

Large-scale Routing Bridge, On-demand Scalability

  • The CE5850 supports the TRILL protocol and can be used on a large Layer 2 TRILL network with GE/10GE servers. A TRILL network can contain more than 500 nodes, enabling flexible service deployments and large-scale Virtual Machine (VM) migrations.
  • The TRILs a routing mechanism similar to IS-IS and sets a limited Time-to-Live (TTL) value in packets to prevent Layer 2 loops. This significantly improves network stability and speeds up networkL protocol use convergence.
  • On a TRILL network, all data flows are forwarded quickly using Shortest Path First (SPF) and Equal-cost Multi-path (ECMP) routing. SPF and ECMP avoid the suboptimal path selection problem in STP and increase link bandwidth efficiency to 100 percent.
  • The CE5850 supports up to 16 TRILL-based Layer 2 equal-cost paths, greatly improving links' load balancing capabilities. The network has a fat-tree architecture that enhances expansion.

Fast VM Migration, Policy Mobility

  • The CE5800 works with Huawei's nCenter automated network management platform to permit network policies to be dynamically deployed on the CE5800. nCenter also supports online VM migration.
  • nCenter delivers network policies through high-speed RADIUS interfaces. Its online VM migration is 10 to 20 times the rate of other industry platforms, enabling large-scale VM migrations.
  • nCenter is based on open APIs and is compatible with all major virtualization platforms including VMware.

Programmable Network Device, Flexible Customization

  • The CE5800 uses the Open Programmability System (OPS) embedded in the VRP8 software platform to provide programmability at the control plane.
  • The OPS provides open APIs. APIs can be integrated with mainstream cloud platforms (including commercial and open cloud platforms) and third-party controllers. The OPS enables services to be flexibly customized and provides automatic management.
  • Users or third-party developers can use open APIs to develop and deploy specialized network management policies to implement extension of fast service functions, automatic deployment, and intelligent management. The OPS also implements automatic operation and maintenance, and reduces management costs.
  • The OPS provides seamless integration of data center service and network in addition to a service-oriented, Software-Defined Network (SDN).

Zero-Configuration Deployment, Automatic O&M

  • The CE5800 supports Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP). ZTP enables the CE5800 to automatically obtain and load version files from a USB flash drive or file server, freeing network engineers from onsite configuration or deployment. ZTP reduces labor costs and improves device deployment efficiency.
  • ZTP provides built-in scripts for users through open APIs. Data center personnel can use the programming language they are familiar with, such as Python, to provide unified configuration of network devices.
  • ZTP decouples configuration time of new devices from device quantity and area distribution, which improves service provisioning efficiency.

Flexible Airflow Design Saves Energy

  • Flexible front-to-back/back-to-front airflow design
    The CE5800 uses a front-to-back/back-to-front airflow design that isolates cold air channels from hot air channels. This design meets heat dissipation requirements in data center equipment rooms.
    Air can flow from front to back, or back to front when different fans and power modules are used.
    Redundant power modules and fans can be configured to ensure uninterrupted service transmission.
  • Energy-saving technologies
    The CE5800 has energy-saving chips and can measure system power consumption in real time. Fan speed can be adjusted dynamically based on system consumption. These energy-saving technologies reduce O&M costs and contribute to a greener data center.

Clear Indicators, Simple Maintenance

  • Clear indicators
    Port indicators clearly show port status and port speeds.
    State and stack indicators on both the front and rear panels enable operators to maintain the switch from either side.
    CE5800 switches support remote positioning. Operators can turn on remote positioning indicators on the switches they want to maintain, so that they can find switches easily in an equipment room full of devices.
  • Simple maintenance
    The management port, fans, and power modules are on the front panel, which facilitates device maintenance.
    Data ports are located at the rear, facing servers. This simplifies cabling.
