Comparison of Huawei Switches CloudEngine S6730-S24X6Q, S6730-H24X6C, and S6730-H48X6C

Huawei CloudEngine S6730-S24X6Q , CloudEngine S6730-H24X6C, and CloudEngine S6730-H48X6C are Huawei's new-generation fixed and full-featured 10 GE switches belonging to Huawei campus switch, but CloudEngine S6730-H24X6C and S6730-H48X6C belong to S6730-H series switch with routing function while S6730-S24X6Q belong to S6730-S series switch. Therefore, in the network application, what is the differences and similarity among them? How to choose a more suitable model?

Let’s see the comparison below:

Switch Series Description

  • CloudEngine S6730-H Series Switches

Huawei CloudEngine S6730-H series full-featured 10GE routing switches are Huawei's new generation fixed switches that provide 10GE downlink ports 100GE uplink ports.
CloudEngine S6730-H series switches provide native AC capabilities and can manage 1K APs. They provide a free mobility function to ensure consistent user experience and are Virtual Extensible LAN(VXLAN )capable to implement network virtualization. CloudEngine S6730-H series switches also provide built-in security probes and support abnormal traffic detection, Encrypted Communications Analytics (ECA), and network-wide threat deception. The CloudEngine S6730-H series is ideal for enterprise campuses, carriers, higher education institutions, and governments.
