CloudEngine 7800 Series Data Center Switches

Huawei CloudEngine 7800 series (CE7800) switches are next-generation 40G Ethernet switches designed for data centers and high-end campus networks. The switches provide high-performance, high-density 40GE ports, and low latency. The CE7800 hardware has an advanced architectural design with 40GE QSFP+ ports. Using the Huawei VRP8 software platform, CE7800 switches provide extensive data center service features and high stacking capability. In addition, the airflow direction (front-to-back or back-to-front) can be changed. CE7800 switches can work with CE12800/6800/5800 switches to build an elastic, virtualized, high-quality fabric that meets the requirements of cloud-computing data centers.

The CE7800 comes in one model, CE7855-32Q-EI.

CE7800 switches can function as core or aggregation switches on data center networks to help enterprises and carriers build a scalable data center network platform in the cloud computing era. They can also be used as aggregation or core switches for enterprise campus networks.
  • Advanced architecture supports virtualization and Layer 2 Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links (TRILL), for provisioning, migrating, and managing security policies in networks with up to 512 nodes.
  • Each 40 GE port can be used as multiple 10 GE ports for flexible networking.
  • Huawei’s intelligent iStack clustering technology boosts reliability and simplifies network management by combining multiple switches into a single logical switch; also supports long-distance stacking.
  • Zero-Touch Provisioning (ZTP) makes deployment quick and easy, and enables on-demand network customization and automated O&M.
