Comparison of Huawei CE6800 Series Switch

CloudEngine 6800 series deliver high-performance, high interface density and low latency to allow enterprises and carriers to build cloud-oriented data center networks.

CloudEngine 6800 switches boast an advanced hardware design with 10 GE/25 GE access interfaces, 40 GE/100 GE uplink interfaces, advanced data center features, high-performance stacking technologies, and flexible airflow capabilities. They are ideal at the core or aggregation layer.

The applications of CE6800 Series

Data Center Applications

On a typical data center network, CE12800/CE12800E/CE8800/CE7800 switches work as core switches, whereas CE8800/CE6800/CE5800 switches work as access switches and connect to the core switches using 100GE/40GE/25GE/10GE ports. The switches use VXLAN and other fabric protocols to establish a non-blocking large Layer 2 network, which allows large-scale VM migrations and flexible service deployments.

Campus Network Applications

On a typical campus network, multiple CE12800/CE12800E/CE8800/CE7800 switches are virtualized into a logical core switch using CSS or iStack technology. Multiple CE8800/CE7800/CE6800 switches at the aggregation layer form a logical switch using iStack technology. CSS and iStack improve network reliability and simplify network management. At the access layer, CE6800/CE5800 switches are virtualized using technologies such as M-LAG to provide high-density line-rate ports.
