Product Overview

CloudEngine 12800E (CE12800E for short) series switches are next-generation core switches designed for data center networks and high-end campus networks, providing high performance and high port density. Using Huawei's next-generation VRP8 operating system, CE12800E series switches provide stable, reliable, and secure high-performance Layer 2/Layer 3 switching capabilities to help build an elastic, virtualized, and high-quality network.

CE12800E series switches use an advanced hardware architecture design and provide 100GE/40GE/10GE line cards with various port densities. The switches support high-density access of high-speed servers and aggregation of TOR switches, providing high performance and large capacity for data center networks. The switches use an orthogonal architecture without a backplane and support smooth evolution to 400GE in the future. They can be installed in 800 mm and 1000 mm deep cabinets because the chassis dimensions are smaller. The switches can function as core and aggregation switches on various data center networks, as well as high-performance switches on high-end campus networks.
