Product features and highlights

Powerful service processing capability and multiple security control mechanisms

  • The S5730-SI supports many Layer 2/Layer 3 multicast protocols such as PIM SM, PIM DM, PIM SSM, MLD, and IGMP snooping, to support multi-terminal high-definition video surveillance and video conferencing services.
  • The S5730-SI supports multiple Layer 3 features including OSPF, IS-IS, BGP, and VRRP, meeting enterprises’ requirements for access and aggregation service transmission, and enabling a variety of voice, video, and data applications.
  • The S5730-SI supports MAC address authentication, 802.1x authentication, and Portal authentication, and implements dynamic delivery of policies (VLAN, QoS, and ACL) to users.
  • The S5730-SI provides a series of mechanisms to defend against DoS and user-targeted attacks. DoS attacks are targeted at switches and include SYN flood, Land, Smurf, and ICMP flood attacks. User-targeted attacks include bogus DHCP server attacks, IP/MAC address spoofing, DHCP request flood, and change of the DHCP CHADDR value.
  • The S5730-SI sets up and maintains a DHCP snooping binding table, and discards the packets that do not match the table entries. You can specify DHCP snooping trusted and untrusted ports to ensure that users connect only to the authorized DHCP server.
  • The S5730-SI supports strict ARP learning, which protects a network against ARP spoofing attacks to ensure normal network access.

Easy O&M

  • The S5730-SI supports Super Virtual Fabric (SVF), which virtualizes the “Core/aggregation + Access switch + AP” structure into a logical device. The S5730-SI provides the simplest network management solution in the industry to simplify device management. It allows plug-and-play access switches and APs. In addition, the S5730-SI supports service configuration templates. The templates are configured on core devices and automatically delivered to access devices, enabling centralized control, simplified service configuration, and flexible configuration modification. The S5730-SI functions as a client in an SVF system.
  • The S5730-SI supports zero-touch deployment, replacement of faulty devices without additional configuration, USB-based deployment, batch configuration, and batch remote upgrade. The capabilities facilitate device deployment, upgrade, service provisioning, and other management and maintenance operations, and also greatly reduce O&M costs. The S5730-SI can be managed using SNMP v1/v2c/v3, CLI, web-based network management system, or SSH v2.0. Additionally, it supports RMON, multiple log hosts, port traffic statistics collection, and network quality analysis, which facilitate network optimization and reconstruction.
  • The S5730-SI supports the Sampled Flow (sFlow) function. It uses a method defined in the sFlow standard to sample traffic passing through it and sends sampled traffic to the collector in real time. The collected traffic statistics are used to generate statistical reports, helping enterprises maintain their networks.

Multiple reliability mechanisms

  • The S5730-SI supports iStack. This technology can virtualize up to nine physical switches into one logical switch. Downlink electrical ports support iStack. Member switches in a stack implement redundancy backup to improve device reliability and use inter-device link aggregation to improve link reliability. iStack provides high network scalability. You can increase a stack’s ports, bandwidth, and processing capacity by simply adding member switches. iStack also simplifies device configuration and management. After a stack is set up, multiple physical switches are virtualized into one logical device. You can log in to any member switch in the stack to manage all the member switches in the stack.
  • The S5730-SI is equipped with two removable power modules that can work in 1+1 redundancy backup mode. Mixed installation of AC and DC power modules is supported, allowing for flexible configuration of AC or DC power modules according to service requirements.
  • In addition to traditional STP, RSTP, and MSTP, the S5730-SI supports Huawei-developed Smart Ethernet Protection (SEP) technology and the latest Ethernet Ring Protection Switching (ERPS) standard. SEP is a ring protection protocol specific to the Ethernet link layer, and applies to various ring network topologies, such as open ring topology, closed ring topology, and cascading ring topology. This protocol is reliable, easy to maintain, and implements fast protection switching within 50 ms. ERPS is defined in ITU-T G.8032. It implements millisecond-level protection switching based on traditional Ethernet MAC and bridging functions.
  • The S5730-SI supports Smart Link. One S5730-SI switch can connect to multiple aggregation switches through multiple links, implementing backup of uplinks and significantly improving reliability of access devices.
  • The S5730-SI supports Ethernet OAM (IEEE 802.3ah/802.1ag) to detect link faults quickly.

Mature IPv6 technologies

  • The S5730-SI uses the mature, stable VRP platform and supports IPv4/IPv6 dual stack, IPv6 RIPng, and IPv6 over IPv4 tunnels (including manual, 6-to-4, and ISATAP tunnels). With these IPv6 features, the S5730-SI can be deployed on a pure IPv4 network, a pure IPv6 network, or a shared IPv4/IPv6 network, helping achieve IPv4-to-IPv6 transition.

Applications

Large-sized enterprise campus networks

The S5730-SI provides various terminal security management features, and supports functions such as PoE, voice VLAN, and QoS. The switch can be used for desktop access and provides gigabit access speed.

The S5730-SI provides various security features including ARP security, IP security, IP source guard, and user access control policies such as NAC and ACLs, to control access of user terminals.
In addition, the switch supports the Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) to provide multi-link access for servers, improving link bandwidth and reliability.
In terms of device management, the S5730-SI provides EasyOperation and USB-based deployment, which facilitates device deployment and management.

Small and mid-sized enterprise campus network

The S5730-SI switches can be located at the aggregation layer to build a high-performance, reliable enterprise campus network.

On an enterprise network or campus network, the S5730-SI switches connect to access switches through gigabit or 10 gigabit interfaces, provide high performance and large switching capacity, and connect to core switches through 10 gigabit optical interfaces. The network provides 10 Gbit/s rate for the backbone layer and 100 Mbit/s access rate for terminals, meeting requirements for high bandwidth and multi-service.
The S5730-SI provides SEP and RRPP to implement millisecond-level protection switchover. The switches form a stack system by using iStack technology to implement the distributed forwarding structure and fast fault recovery. The stack system increases the number of user interfaces and improves packet processing capability. The member switches can be managed in a uniform manner to facilitate network management and maintenance.

Small-sized enterprise campus network

Other than that, the S5730-SI switches can be used as the core switches of a small-sized enterprise campus network, which have powerful aggregation and routing capabilities.
