Huawei S6730 Switch Comparison

Huawei S6700 series switch provides a wide variety of services, comprehensive security policies, and various QoS features to help customers build scalable, manageable, reliable, and secure data centers, which is also various from different sub series as an access switch in an Internet data center (IDC) or a core switch on a campus network.

S6700 Series has industry-leading performance and provides up to 24 or 48 line-speed 10GE ports.

 

S6720-LI series

  • Up to 24 x 10 GE downlink ports and 2 x 40 GE uplink ports
  • Switching capacity of 1.28 Tbit/s
  • 220 mm deep for easy installation in a 300 mm deep cabinet
  • Super Virtual Fabric (SVF) for simplified network O&M

 

S6720-SI series

  • 16/24/48 multi-GE ports (1G/2.5G/5G/10G)
  • Switching capacity of 2.56 Tbit/s
  • Industry-unique PoE++ (60 W) over 200 m
  • Super Virtual Fabric (SVF) for simplified network O&M

 

S6720-EI Series

  • Up to 48 x 10 GE downlink ports and 6 x 40 GE uplink ports
  • Switching capacity of 2.56 Tbit/s
  • Intelligent Stack (iStack), with a bidirectional stack bandwidth of 480 Gbit/s
  • Super Virtual Fabric (SVF) for simplified network O&M

 

S6720-HI Series

  • Up to 44 x 10 GE downlink ports and 2 x 100 GE uplink ports
  • Switching capacity of 2.56 Tbit/s
  • Wired and wireless convergence for simplified network and user management
  • Network fault locating in minutes through Telemetry

 

Recently, Huawei S6700 also provides these platforms: S6730-HI and S6730-SI

In this article, I’d like to compare these two series.

 

CloudEngine S6730-H Series 10 GE Switches

S6730-H48X6C

CloudEngine S6730-H Series 10 GE Switches deliver 10 GE downlink and 100 GE uplink connectivity for enterprise campuses, carriers, higher education institutions, and governments, integrating native Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) Access Controller (AC) capabilities, to support up to 1024 WLAN Access Points (APs).

The series enables the convergence of wired and wireless networks — greatly simplifying operations — offering free mobility to deliver a consistent user experience and Virtual Extensible Local Area Network (VXLAN)-based virtualization, creating a multi-purpose network. With built-in security probes, CloudEngine S6730-H supports abnormal traffic detection, Encrypted Communications Analytics (ECA), and network-wide threat deception.
