CloudEngine 8800 Series Data Center Switches

Huawei CloudEngine 8800 series (CE8800) switches are 40G Ethernet switches designed for data centers and high-end campus networks. The switches provide high-performance, high-density 40 GE ports, and low latency. The CE8800 hardware has an advanced architectural design with 100 GE/40 GE/25 GE/10 GE ports. Using the Huawei VRP8 software platform, CE8800 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.
The CE8800 comes in three model: CE8860-4C-EI,CE8850-64CQ-EI,CE8850-32CQ-EI.

CE8800 switches can work with CE12800/CE8800/CE6800/CE5800 switches to build an elastic, virtualized, high-quality fabric for cloud-computing data centers.

CE8800 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.

  • The CE8800 supports 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.
  • 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.
  • Zero-Touch Provisioning (ZTP) makes deployment quick and easy, and enables on-demand network customization and automated O&M.
